Tech Tips by Joe Dietz

How to use Apple Pay with your iPhone

Is it time to quit carrying credit cards, cash, boarding passes and coupons? With the Apple Wallet App you can do just that. Starbucks, MacDonalds and Trader Joe's are just a few of the stores using this concept. More and more are getting on the bandwagon everyday. This technology makes checking out quicker, no checks, no credit card processing, and less time for all waiting in line.

Here is how it works.

In a store that uses Apple Pay or other pay with phone methods, you select your groceries and head to the check out. After the clerk finishes ringing up your order, you activate your phone wallet by double clicking on the home button of your iPhone. Then, on the credit card reader, all you have to do is tap your phone on one of the pay icons. The machine will chime to acknowledge that it has accepted the charge. Depending on the amount, you may or may not have to sign on the screen. The clerk will hand you your receipt and you are done. Once you have done that, you will receive a notification that the charge has been made to that credit card and the amount.

In order to set up your phone for this, all you have to do is open your Apple Wallet App, tap on the + sign and then follow the prompts. You will be ready to go.

Changes to Kroger Card Program

To all CKCS Members and Friends:

We appreciate your participation in the Kroger Community Rewards program. The donations from Kroger have enabled several improvements in our organization without dues increases.

Remember, August is the month that all Kroger customers must repeat their signup for the Community Rewards Program. But, Kroger has made changes in the way that one can sign up to participate.

Please call the Kroger Digital Customer Service line at 1-866-221-4141 and request that your name and CKCS (NPO number 11119) are added to your Community Rewards Program. You can also do this online or with your smart phone.

You can do this anytime in August but don't forget.

New CKCS members and non-members can participate in this program. A few days after you enroll, you will see a message that Kroger has made a donation to CKCS on your purchase receipts.

Thank you for participating in Kroger Community Rewards and helping CKCS!


Disk Erasing Service

CKCS is now offering a service to erase your older disk drive so you can feel confident that no personal information is left on it before you give it away or dispose of it.

Bring your computer or just the disk drive to CKCS to get it erased and returned to you or donated to charity. Erasing is usually done on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday mornings between 10 AM and 1 PM or at the Dr Fixit Special Interest Group which usually meets on the first Saturday of every month between 10 AM and noon. There is no charge but a small donation would be appreciated.
