Google showed off how easy it is to use Google Wallet by entirely funding San Francisco and New York customers' first purchases [ h/t Brett Crosby ].
The team's first stop: The Container Store. Armed with a Sprint Nexus S 4G -- the only phone currently compatible with Wallet -- in hand, Google Wallet employees approached customers in the checkout line and paid for their purchases.
"Just pick whatever you want and it's on us," a Google Wallet employee tells one customer.
"Oh my gosh, it's so cool!" one customer exclaimed in the video.
"Free stuff and a chance to try something innovative is a win-win situation," +Franklin C writes on Google+.
LAUNCH has contacted Google and will update this story if we get a response.
Compatible merchants include Jamba Juice, Office Max, Radio Shack, Peets Coffee & Tea and more.
Yesterday, Google announced its Q3 financial results, where the company had revenue just short of $10B.
Two customers celebrate at The Container Store.
