business news in context, analysis with attitude

TechCrunch< reports that “Amazon Cash, the service that lets consumers add cash to their balance at brick-and-mortar retailers, is now available at nearly 8,000 7-Eleven convenience stores, the companies announced today. That’s a significant expansion for Amazon Cash, which was previously available at retailers like CVS, Speedway and GameStop, along with a handful of other supermarket chains and convenience stores.”

Amazon Cash is aimed at better serving what are called “under-banked” and “un-banked” shoppers - a group targeted by chief rival Walmart.
