Gold vending machines

use credit cards in vending machinesSome travelers have to settle for getting nothing more than a can of soda from a hotel vending machine. But visitors to Abu Dhabi's Emirates Palace Hotel can purchase gold merely by swiping a credit card.

Ranging from gold coins to 24-carat gold bars in 1-, 5- and 10-gram weights, the decked-out gold-leafed "Gold to Go" vending machine happily accepts your debit or credit card as payment for a souvenir more glamorous than a postcard.

But a trip to the Middle East isn't necessary if you need a little glitz: Gold vending machines that accept credit cards have already popped up in Boca Raton, Fla., and the glitz capital of the western world, Las Vegas.
