At any time, users can upload a membership or loyalty card from select retailers within Quotient’s partner network, including many of their favorite grocery, drug, dollar and other retailers. Users then view offers and save the coupons they’d like to use, and, because the coupons are linked to a membership account, the savings will automatically be applied when they check-out with Samsung Pay.
With Samsung Pay, users can redeem gift cards from U.S. retailers, as well as earn rewards through merchants’ membership programs. Samsung Pay now also offers users with a cloud storage feature to restore membership, gift, and Samsung Reward cards whenever they sign into a new device.
When Samsung Pay launched in the U.S. a year ago, it supported cards from four banks. Today, Samsung Pay works with over 500 banks across the U.S. covering over 80 percent of all debit and credit cards.
To mark its one-year anniversary, Samsung Pay is offering users over $100,000 in prizes. As part of the celebration, 365 winners will receive a Gear S2, which now works with Samsung Pay. Currently in beta, Samsung Pay on Gear S2 works using Near Field Communication (NFC) technology allowing users to make a payment at any NFC terminal.
Samsung Pay is currently available on select Galaxy devices including the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S7 active, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 active, Galaxy Note7 and Galaxy Note5.
