The Coca-Cola Company is taking Isis to a new medium: vending machines. Imagine the convenience of using your Isis Mobile Wallet™ to buy a Coke and earn My Coke Rewards. In Austin, you can do just that.
Coca-Cola is currently testing 200 vending machines in Austin and plans to roll out tens of thousands more units nationwide later this year. To learn more about Coca-Cola’s partnership with Isis – and why the company is serious about mobile innovation – we recommend reading Coca-Cola’s new blog post.
Getting started with Isis is easy. Consumers should first visit an AT&T Mobility, T-Mobile USA or Verizon Wireless retail store in Austin or Salt Lake City to select an Isis Ready™ phone. If your phone already supports Isis, a new SIM card may be necessary. The SIM card includes an important chip called the secure element that ensures data is securely encrypted. With an Isis Ready device in hand, download the Isis Mobile Wallet for free from the Google Play store.
