27 more credit card issuers partner with Apple Pay in the states; is your bank included?
Apple today announced that 27 new banks are being added to the roster of credit card issuers whose cards are compatible with Apple Pay. While most major banks are already included, Apple is adding smaller regional financial institutions and Credit Unions. The more cards that Apple Pay supports, the more transactions that Apple gets to keep a slice of.

In addition, Apple is beefing up the number of vendors that accept the mobile payment service. In alphabetical order, companies like American Apparel, Crate & Barrel, Chick-fil-A, Cinnabon, Chili's, Domino's, JCPenney, KFC, and Starbucks will be accepting Apple Pay sometime this year.

The 27 card issuers that have just partnered with Apple include:

  • 1st Community Federal Credit Union
  • Abacus Federal Savings Bank
  • Bank of England
  • BankFirst Financial Services
  • Bull's Eye Credit Union
  • Colfax Banking Company
  • Columbia Bank Florida
  • First Bank
  • First Federal Bank of Louisiana
  • First National Bank of Durango
  • First Southern National
  • Franklin First Federal Credit Union
  • Green Country Federal Credit Union
  • Gulf States Credit Union
  • Guthrie County State Bank
  • Henrico Federal Credit Union
  • Lone Star National Bank
  • Mill City Credit Union
  • Modern Woodmen Bank
  • Pasadena Federal Credit Union
  • PNC Bank, Global Investment Servicing
  • Raleigh County Federal Credit Union
  • Sage Capital Bank
  • St. Landry Bank and Trust Co.
  • TCM Bank
  • West Milton State Bank

If you have a card issued by one of the above, you can now add it to your Wallet app so that you can select it for Apple Pay.

All those new credit card companies and banks added don't mean jack if only about 10% (don't quote me on the exact percentage but that's what it seems like in my experience) of all stores take Apple Pay.

I agree that it's more important to add merchants than banks. But I use my phone to pay at about 80% of the time. For example: Two of three gas stations that's within half a mile accept Apple Pay. The only merchant that I'm using frequently that doesn't accept it is Home Depot. But even my local car tuneup place that only has two locations accepts Apple Pay.

This circlejerker thinks it's the end of the world if someone doesn't have an NFC terminal lollllll. Remember when it was allllll the raaageee that "ANDROYED HAZ ENN EFF SEA AND APPUL DUZINT IN YORE FASES EYESHEEP! We can use NFC EVUREEWARE!!!!!" I remember them boasting that over and over again lol. Now look at them. If it's NFC, it's bad, or limited, LOLOLOL. The fact that the UK is almost done eradicating all swipe terminals with NFC terminals + Samsung Pay being extremely limited when it comes to UK Cards, is quite saddening for our friends over there

Android nfc is nice. I use nfc tags all of the place when I had an android. In the car to launch music. At work to silence and shut down everything. Good stuff.

No, but I remember when NFC and tap to pay were just useless gimmicks that nobody needed.

Just curious are you paying at the gas stations at the pump or do you have to go in to use Apple Pay? I can use Samsung Pay at gas stations, but I would have to go in and use the mag stripe reader at the cashier's terminal, it doesn't work at the pump (although there is a workaround supposedly where you use any card like an ID to "trip" the reader at the pump and then you use Samsung Pay, but if you have to use a card to trip it, might as well use your real CC). I'm just too lazy to walk to the cashier. Also using it at sit down restaurants where you give your car to the server. Now I do like how some restaurants like Applebees, Chilis, etc now have the tablets at your table where you can play games and order items but can also use your swipe credit card and I can pay with Samsung Pay using those with MST.

NFC terminal Are everywhere in Australia and in most places in the Western World... The only people that would struggle with Apple Pay would be Americans, as they are so slow at adopting new technology like NFC Terminals. Eventually the US will catch up to the usage levels of NFC Terminals... It's the future and apple isn't going to stop and support outdated tech over the future that the rest of the western world has already adopted

The iPhone desperately needs its own version of MST.
