With back-to-school time approaching, parents will soon again be pulling out their wallets to pay for all the things… back-to-school outfits, school supplies, school-appropriate snacks, and much more.

How hectic do you find back-to-school shopping? It truly depends on the number of kids you have, plus what age they are! My teen and tween boys are growing at a rapid rate, which means we’ll be shopping for many new items… clothing, sturdy backpacks and binders, running shoes, as well as new (expensive) hockey gear for the upcoming season.

I’m one of those people who rarely carry around cash anymore. When I’m shopping, I love being able to conveniently pull out my debit card and tap it to pay. I can easily navigate through checkout, and be on my way. After all, our daily routines are scheduled to a tee – time is always of the essence.

Interac Flash® is a convenient and secure way to pay for purchases because you don’t have to enter your PIN, or fumble around for change. Just hold your Interac Flash card up to the contactless point-of-sale reader, and you’re done.
