Figured I'd let you all know that if you're a UK-based Samsung Pay user, there's a sweet prize draw promo going on at the moment.
You can enter the draw via the Samsung Pay app, and by making five successful Samsung Pay transactions between 00:01 (GMT) 8 March 2019 and 23:59 (BST) 3 May 2019.
Enter by: Samsung Pay > clicking into the 'Thousands of prizes on tap' promo on the Home, Pay or Promotions tabs in the app. Also available on Samsung Pay Gear.
Once entered, you'll receive a stamp each time you pay using Samsung Pay:
Once you've collected all five, go to Vouchers to see your prize draw entry:
Further details at the promo's Terms page here.
And let us know in this thread if you're one of the lucky winners!
That's awesome Ant ^-^ Quite sure that my bank isn't listed in there (Did reach out to them using twitter a few times haha 😛 ).
Telling people to request it from our banks. That whole list has like 2 banks the rest are jobs worth companys who have their hand in digital banking not actual banks. Samsung pay to me is spam a useless app what is forced on some devices what are asking their users to help them be accepted by proper banks
I dunno. I briefly counted 4 completely separate actual banks, 1 large UK building society, 1 major global credit card company, 1 card that's a subsidiary of a Swiss bank. Would be great if they had more though.
Have you seen Google pay
Bank of Scotland
The Co-operative Bank
First Trust Bank
Isle of Man Bank
Royal Bank of Scotland
That's a list of banks. Yeah I noticed a couple more but they are small banks not major ones.
The app really annoys me. My six year old has a j6 and the app is on there and can not uninstall. It always showed the stupid drag up from the bottom thing they added and no matter what I done to the permissions it still came back. I wound up rooting the phone and removing it that way.
It seems the banks what are banks don't want to use Samsung pay and to me that says something, Samsung are hoping we will all go to our banks and request they use Samsung pay and if enough people do they might act. But I would stick with Google pay all day long over Samsung even if my bank supported it
@TheJackal - I am not using Google Pay, I am using Samsung Pay and I am participating on a Samsung forum about Samsung Services.
Where is the point of trolling this thread if you don't care (and you are not interested) in Samsung Pay?
Such a waste of energy...
It's cool if folks want to talk on the forum about the technical merits and drawbacks of various pay apps, along with their personal pay app preference... but this isn't really the best thread to do it on.
And swerving this thread back on topic: you can’t currently be in a draw to win a TV, smartwatch, a speaker, or a memory card with Google Pay in the UK.
