Use Samsung Pay on your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge and earn a $30 gift card

Thanks to the use of MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) on Samsung Pay, the mobile payment service works even at retailers who do not sport an NFC enabled POS system. This means that unlike most other services like Apple Pay and Android Pay, Samsung Pay will work at any retailer where they swipe credit cards at the register. As a result, Samsung Pay works at more than 90% of retailers globally.

If you purchase the Samsung Galaxy S7 or Samsung Galaxy S7 edge , you are in line to earn a $30 gift card from Sammy. All you need to do is make a purchase using Samsung Pay between today and March 31st. If you do that, you will able to choose a $30 gift card from Best Buy, eBay, Whole Foods, Nike or Regal Entertainment. And once you decide which one to select, the $30 card will be added to your Samsung Pay wallet, no fuss, no muss. By the way, Bank of America debit and private label cards are excluded from this offer.

If for some reason Samsung Pay did not come pre-loaded on your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge, we have the instructions here so that you can re-install the app. Verizon customers might be the only ones not receiving Samsung Pay as a pre-loaded app. Verizon says that it is not blocking its customers from using the service once it is installed on either phone.

Ordered the wife's S7 yesterday. I'm getting a free Gear S2 with it, and then I'll set her up on Samsung Pay, and get the $30 GC. Maybe I can even get in on the Android Pay promo, if it's still active.

Used Samsung Pay and claimed my $30 g/c to Best Buy. Process was simple and quick and the g/c was issued within five minutes of purchase.

I have yet to actually use Samsung Pay. Having a disability, I do not always have the help to hold the phone to the NFC reader. And, as for older readers, everyone looks at me like I am crazy and just won't do it. Sad. Stores need to put readers lower.

It's awesome that Samsung offers these deals on a near weekly basis. It was a free wireless charger last week and now a $30 gift card. That's how you get new users onboard!

This is where all them "losses" are coming from, offering great value to customers to further justify the price tag of the device. Kudos Samsung.

I seen better deals related to using Samsung Pay and getting stuff in return such as the wireless charging base. This is now my first Samsung device that suupports Samsung Pay, but I will wait for a better deal to surface.

I'm not sure that I understand your logic here. It doesn't say that taking advantage of this deal excludes you from any future deals. Use this one & if the opportunity arises, do it again in the future.

As always copy cat Sammy stealing this from iPhone. Apple Pay came waaay earlier and they didn't even bother to change the name a lot. Poor Sammy.

At least Samsung rewards its customers. When was the last time Apple awarded you iSheep?

Couldn't the same be said about Apple Pay and Google Wallet, given that Apple Pay was announced in September 2014 while Google announced Google Wallet back in May 2011? Ultimately, it shouldn't matter. Let them drive each other and just enjoy the benefit as a consumer, troll.

Yes, shame on Samsung for copying Android just like Apple did.
