Starting on September 16th, Discover Cards can be used with mobile payment system Apple Pay. As a bonus, from that date until the end of the year, Discover Card members using Apple Pay will earn an extra 10% on in-store purchases of up to $10,000. An extra 10 miles per dollar spent on in-store purchases up to $10,000 will be awarded to Discover it Miles, Miles and Escape cardmembers.
Those using their Discover Cards with Apple Pay will continue to have protection like $0 Fraud Liability Guarantee. This means that cardholders will never be responsible to pay for unauthorized purchases made with the card. And Apple Pay doesn't use or store your actual card number. Besides the unique Device Account Number that is assigned to your card, encrypted and securely stored on your iPhone, each transaction uses a one-time unique dynamic security code.
"We are excited for Discover cardmembers to have the ability to use Apple Pay. Rewards have always been important to our cardmembers, and we want to make sure they receive a generous offer for shopping with Discover and Apple Pay. We want to encourage new and existing Discover cardmembers to add their Discover card to Apple Pay with a few simple clicks using our mobile app, take advantage of this 10% Cashback Bonus, and experience the ease and convenience of using Apple Pay."-Heather Roche, vice president of rewards, Discover
