San Francisco merchants to offer promotions and discounts for Apple Pay users this week
Since its debut two years ago, Apple Pay has grown into a serious profit driver for the iPhone maker. It brought a $7.04 billion revenue in the past quarter and it's going to grow with added focus on P2P payments, money transfers, and prepaid Apple Pay Cash cards. Now, Apple is looking forward to expanding the service's user base by means of good old-fashioned marketing.
Between June 23 and June 25, Apple will be running a promotion for Apple Pay users in San Francisco. A total of 20 merchants in the Hayes Valley and Marina areas, such as Azalea, Blue Bottle Coffee, Dish, Minimal, and Welcome Stranger, will take up to 25% off orders paid via Apple Pay. Other discounts include Souvla's Crumbled Melamakarona frozen yogurt for $1, large Double Decker fries for $1, and a free gift card from Aether.
Stores specific to the Marina area to partake in the promotion include Over the Moon, Peet's Coffee, Gala, and Pladra. Additionally, Caviar and Square will offer $5 off purchases, while Spot Hero will take 50% off parking in SF, and Pay By Phone will hold a contest for one month of free parking.
