ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwire - Jan 18, 2012) - PXT Money, a mobile payment and discount program company, welcomes BU students back to school and gives locals a new year's resolution to Forget the Plastic and save money by going mobile, with free coffee on Thursday, January 19, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Temptations Cafe in Coolidge Corner, Brookline, MA.

By going to and signing up for a PXT Money account, residents receive an automatic $5 free gift loaded onto their phone. That's PXT Money asking "Can I $ u a shot -- of espresso?" for signing up and joining the pay-by-phone revolution.

Pay with your phone. Earn with your phone. PXT Money has launched the smartphone payment app that lets consumers instantly load money from PayPal, credit or debit/checking accounts onto their phone. After that, consumers pay for food, drinks, and other merchandise by just telling the bartender, barista, waiter, or cashier their cell phone number. Consumers can also send each other money instantly, and pool their money to buy things, just by using smart phones.

Because money on your phone is completely digital stored value, there are no limits to the discounts and special offers stores and restaurants can offer. PXT Money is also safer than debit cards. It's safe from identity theft, there's nothing to be lost or stolen, the app is protected by a PIN number, and PXT Money does not maintain anyone's personal data. Occupy your wallet and take back control over your money with PXT Money, which also lets account holders and merchants alike earn the equivalent of dividends on their money. Aside from exclusive discounts and special offers, consumers can earn money on an ongoing basis by signing up friends and customers.

"PXT Money is designed to help people earn money too," said John Regan, CEO of PXT Money. "Once you have an account, whenever you sign up a friend, you earn $1. Every time that friend purchases something using PXT Money, you also get a percentage of that purchase. We are also offering paid internships to Boston area college students and will have applications at Temptations Cafe. Or apply on Facebook or our website. These offers are ongoing, all a part of using new mobile money."
