I will use a card on rare occasions when I miscalculate and don't have enough cash on me, but I would never even contemplate pay bloody wave. I have been fighting with my bank for nearly a year to get it disabled.
Do they have an eftpos option with no paywave? I know BNZ do. I have paywave on all my cards, except one, it's basically a dumb eftpos card without my name on it. The type of card you get instantly from the branch when you (think) you've lost your wallet. I leave it hidden in the car in case I lose my wallet again.
I've no issue with paywave. My last two corporate cards haven't had it, but they're both from the US.
Edit, I'm sure Westpac did it too.
