    The Starbucks tile on the band is simply their 16 digit 2D barcode.... so technically it could be used for other retailers besides Starbucks.

    I'm not sure, but I believe Chipotle uses the same payment method? Does anyone know for sure?

    I was thinking the same thing. This really isn't rocket science. Any payment system that works off of a barcode could work on the Band. For that matter, if only the Band had NFC, it would support Google Wallet or SoftCard. Using a barcode system for payment seems very open to fraud. On the other hand, Google Wallet's system of requiring a PIN, being nearby and inserting a proxy credit card in between makes a lot more sense.
