was looking intot this myself. I have only gotten Paypal to truley work. Im not looking to add debit/credit cards. but more like bestbuy rewards, autozone,starbucks. But what im getting is the cards you want to add have to have an app from the company. Does anyone else have an idea?

Thank you for quoting FidMe. There it is, FidMe is now available in the Windows Phone 8 Microsoft "Wallet"! And we have pictures :)
You can transfer in the Microsoft Wallet your loyalty cards and also coupons, deals, gifts earned on FidMe.

Yeah, I use FidMe also and it's pretty awesome. Use it to store all my loyalty cards and the barcode scanners have no problem reading my phone. It also integrates into Wallet, but I find it more convenient for me just to pin my most frequent cards to my home screen (from the FidMe app). Just tap on it and the bar code comes up. Quick and easy.

What? I feel like some information got crossed. Just like with any of my cc or debit cards I still put in a zip or pin. Why would software gimp just the transfer of a card number through NFC? You mentioned a secure sim, are carriers nixing this?
NFC payments will die soon if phones don't have it. Phones can have another pin too.
No wonder I couldn't add it to my gf's 920. Wallet is useless (for us) then.

That being said, no carriers to my knowledge have gotten anything off the ground in this area yet. Secure SIMs exist, but there isn't anything to use it for. Microsoft promised that they would have something in place in the US in 2013, but there hasn't been any further news on this yet.
And yes, I agree that Wallet is near useless even still.

I had completely forgotten about this post; It's quite a coincidence it got bumped as in the past week or so, I've actually got some apps that integrate with the wallet.
The first is the GAME Reward app which was updated very recently and now has wallet integration. There is also an app called Pass Wallet; which let's you add vouchers designed for Apple's Passbook to your wallet. Not sure how much use this will get as I don't think that Apple's Passbook has caught on that much either (at least not in the UK), but I'm keeping it just in case
In addition to these apps, I also noticed that T-Mobile UK was added as a payment option to my wallet.
