Much like they recently did in the streets of San Francisco, the Google Wallet team is partnering with Sprint and Samsung to bring demos of the Mastercard-powered NFC payment tech to retail stores in Chicago, Washington DC, New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles between now and January. In addition to trying out Google Wallet on a Samsung Nexus S demo unit during one of the half-day events, you’ll get $10 towards your purchase in the process. The events have already kicked off this month in New York and Chicago.

The roadshow will be hitting various retail locations including Jamba Juice, Walgreens, Foot Locker, Duane Reade, Peet’s Coffee & Tea, Chelsea Market, and Fat Witch Bakery, among others. You can check out the times (which are all in EST) at the full event calendar here. Dates for the five cities are listed below:

New York: Oct. 17 – Nov. 13 Chicago: Oct. 17 – Nov. 13 Washington, DC: Nov. 15 – Dec. 12 San Francisco: Nov. 15 – Dec. 12 Los Angeles: Dec. 14 – Jan. 12
