Samsung is rolling out a new update to Samsung Pay, bringing with it support for loyalty cards as well as support for additional banks and credit unions.
This update brings the application to version 2.0. In addition to support for membership and loyalty cards in this version, there’s also now a new tab for promotions.
Adding membership to your database of cards is pretty straightforward. You can simply scan the barcode of the card from the Samsung Pay application or manually punch in the account number on the card. Samsung Pay will also give you the option to take a photo of the front and back of the card, which might be a good idea if the cashier at a store ever needs to see the card (this is particularly a good idea for places like Costco or Sam’s Club).
Support for membership and loyalty cards is truly a nice touch. Now, there’s no more need to carry the tens of membership cards in your wallet or purse anymore!
As we mentioned earlier, Samsung also added support for 38 new banks and credit unions, including Genisys Credit Union, the Credit Union of Texas, and even the National Bank of Arizona. You can find a full list of supported institutions here.
