Add your first card to Samsung Pay, and get a free Samsung Level U wireless headset
Thanks to the fact that Samsung Pay uses MST (magnetic secure transmission) in addition to NFC, Sammy's mobile payment service works in roughly 90% of retail locations around the world. Stores that support NFC will allow Samsung Pay users to hover their phones near the
POS terminal to ring up a transaction, while other locations will allow the phone to be "swiped" against the side of the terminal as though you were swiping your credit card.

This explains the commercials for the service that show shopkeepers surprised to see Samsung Pay ringing up a transaction; that includes the new one starring Cosby whistle-blower Hannibal Buress, who uses Samsung Pay to take care of a sandwich he ordered from New York's iconic Katz Deli.

In an effort to get more subscribers to use the service, Samsung is offering consumers a free Samsung Level U wireless headset for merely adding their first card to the service. To qualify for the free headset, open Samsung Pay on your Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and Samsung Galaxy Note 5. Activate an account using your Samsung Account ID over a participating carrier.

Next, you register a qualifying credit card before February 22nd. Once that is done, go to the "More" menu on the Samsung Pay app. Click on Samsung Pay Card Registration Offer. Agree to the terms and conditions to receive a code that you can use on Samsung.com to receive a black Samsung Level U Wireless Headphone (valued at $69.99) for free. Only 20,000 freebies are being offered, so once they are all gone, the deal is over. The code must be redeemed before March 15th, or before supplies last, so we wouldn't waste any time before taking Samsung up on this deal.

Samsung paypay sucks! I tried to use my Capital one card & M&T bank card. Neither 1 are supported by Samsung pay.

Wow, really? Samsung is really giving back a lot to it's users. They're really making the price of the SmartPhone worth it in all the gifts you get, from the Samsung App Store to hardware like this for using their various services...

BTW, who's this "Samsuing" you refer to at the end? Don't your Macs have text to speech iPhonearena? Consider making use of it in proof reading...

You don't really need to use it. Activate it, order it for free and then remove the card if you don't like using it.

I think its a good thing if you forget your wallet and are stuck somewhere.

Indeed. There was seriously one day that I left my wallet at home, and Samsung Pay came to rescue!

Mobile Payment is all a gimmick, but it is fun to see people's reactions when I use Samsung Pay at places where no other phones work.

I really don't understand how payments could be considered a gimmick. IMO It's genuinely useful. Especially since there aren't all that many places that you absolutely have to use a card. I remember pocketnow running an article a little while ago talking about phones eventually turning into replacements for wallets entirely as photo IDs, membership cards and debit/credit cards are stored on mobile devices instead. They made the argument that being worried about losing your phone and losing everything is literally no different than having your wallet stolen and achieving the same result. While it's true a lot more banks need to get on board and terminals need to be upgraded, that is only a matter of time.

There have been at least 12different occasions with either my brother's S6 edge or my 6P and 6s Plus that I simply left my wallet at home barring a slot that I use to store my ID in my phone case. And with payment platforms even moving towards being acceptable at ATM machines, the day will come where wallets aren't necessary.

Granted, hacking or exploits are not a fear with physical wallets. That is a legitimate concern.

I would like to have both. It would be nice to be able to use my phone if I left my wallet at home. It would also like to be able to use my card if my phone battery died on me.

Just buy a case with card storage, there are a bunch on the market and you are all set. I have one where I can keep one credit card and my drivers license.

Those headphones suck! I ordered a pair and the sound level is really low and the ear buds never stayed in my ears... They are getting rid of inventory.

With the past Samsung Pay offers, I have already received 2 wireless charging pads and a $50 check. Too bad I can't take advantage of this new offer (I tried).
