We were so psyched to hear that we could pay for our Magic Carpet meal deals by credit card, because seriously, the trek to the Wawa ATM = no fun. But get this: the DP reports today that scores of food carts near campus are now accepting payments by text message.
The system is set up through a service called Venmo started by enterprising Penn grads (duh), whereby you can send a text to a specific number to pay your bill. This sounds cool, but if technical difficulties make the line at Hemo’s any longer or the process of getting a burrito at Don Memo move any slower, we will not be pleased. In addition to Hemo’s and Memo’s, the service is also available at Coup de Taco and Hub Bub.
Anyone tried the system yet? Let us know down below.
