Samsung Pay will support many more banks and cards later this year


Samsung Pay

Samsung Pay is one of the best mobile payment options out there right now, but it’s hampered by a lack of support from banks. Right now it only works with American Express, Bank of America, citi, US Bank, and Synchrony Financial. The Samsung Pay technology is great, but it’s worthless if your credit card isn’t supported. The good news is Samsung will be adding many more banks before years end.

In a press release, Samsung has announced a slew of banks that will be supported later this year. The long list includes Chase, PNC Bank, TD Bank, SunTrust, Fifth Third Bank, First Hawaiian, Key Bank, Silicon Valley Bank, Security Service Federal Credit Union, Navy Federal Credit Union, Virginia Credit Union, Associated Bank, Randolph Brooks Federal Credit Union, and People’s United Bank.

Samsung will also be adding support for gift cards from “dozens of top retailers.” This is thanks to a partnership with Blackhawk Network, which works with retailers in categories like grocery, fashion, entertainment, and dining. Gift cards should be a great addition to Samsung Pay. In order to use Samsung Pay you need the Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, or Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus.

Ever since I flipped open my first phone I've been obsessed with the devices. I've dabbled in other platforms, but Android is where I feel most at home.
