Use Apple Pay at certain retailers today through December 21st, and score a $5 iTunes/App Store card

Just in time for last minute holiday shopping, Apple is running a promotion that starts today and runs through December 21st. Use Apple Pay at one of 20 select online retailers during the promotion period, and you'll receive a $5 gift card that can be used with a purchase from the App Store, or from iTunes. You are limited to one gift card for each of the online retailers you shop online with, using Apple Pay.

According to Apple' website detailing the promotion, each of the retailers might have a different minimum purchase requirement. The online retailers who are partnering with Apple include:

  • 1800 Flowers
  • Abercrombie and Fitch
  • Bonobos
  • Cole Haan
  • eBags
  • Express
  • Fanatics
  • Fancy
  • Hayneedle
  • JCPenny
  • Jet
  • Kenneth Cole
  • Kiehl’s
  • Macy’s
  • Reef
  • Stockpile
  • Tumi
  • Warby Parker
  • Wayfair
  • Wish

If you still need to finish your holiday shopping, use Apple Pay at the aforementioned online retailers and you can use each $5 gift card you receive to help you pay for a paid app or for some streaming content from iTunes. And there is no rule that says you can't keep for yourself anything you buy using the gift cards that you receive with this promotion.

Wow, pretty nice. Guessing Apple isn't happy with the usage of Apple Pay.

Carry 2 phones Samsung and iPhone with me everyday. I rarely use Apple Pay part of it is a lot place I went still no NFC, but with Samsung Pay I haven't see any store not work. Samsung Pay is Greatest to date. By the way, for those out there trying to use Samsung Pay at Walmart, Sam club, Costco. These store purposely reject Samsung Pay 1 or 2 attempt before approve the transaction, especially Walmart I think they are do that so you make you think about use Walmart Pay. 95% people I know still don't use Apple Pay, that could be reason why Apple slash cash to encourage people use Apple Pay more.

I use Samsung Pay as well. I like it when I go to pay for something and the cashier will say we don't accept Apple Pay and I tell them this isn't Apple Pay. I want to tell them there is a world outside of Apple but keep it to myself.

I have used Apple Pay where they don’t accept it either (or they think they don’t). Yes I think Samsung Pay is more versatile - but Apple Pay is accepted in more places than just the official retailers. I don’t have an iPhone anymore, btw. I tried 6s for a month - it’s too big. Waiting on iPhone Xc (iPhone 5 body with screen to body ratio of the X). That would be the ultimate phone for me.
