METRO calls back Payback with RFID

February 28, 2004

As reported earlier, METRO AG tried to establish hidden RFID Chips for their "Payback" loyalty cards, to be used by customers of the German "Future Store" in Rheinberg.

After sharp criticism of activists like FoeBuD, METRO has now decided to start a callback. The cards will be replaced by loyalty cards without RFID.
