NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Starting today, Chase Pay customers with compatible flagship Samsung Galaxy smartphones now have the option to link Chase Pay to Samsung Pay.
This means that customers will now be able to use Samsung Pay’s Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) technology, along with NFC, to pay with the Chase Pay app at millions of merchants in the United States by simply tapping the payment terminal.
Bringing together the two wallets offers Chase cardholders more ways to pay with their mobile phones and at more places. Samsung Pay is accepted at nearly all payment terminals, making it the most widely accepted mobile payment product in the United States.
Consumers that link Chase Pay to Samsung Pay will be able to earn both Samsung Rewards points and for eligible Chase cards, Chase Ultimate Rewards points, for the purchases they make. In addition, both consumers and businesses will benefit from the Chase Pay app’s pay with points feature, which allows customers to redeem Chase Ultimate Rewards points at checkout for a statement credit. Many merchants large and small will be able to let their customers use Chase Pay as a payment method at no extra implementation cost.
“Now our customers can use the Chase Pay app at millions of merchants around the country. And Chase Ultimate Rewards customers can redeem their points more easily,” said Jennifer Roberts, head of Chase Pay.
Chase Pay is a mobile app and digital engagement platform that enables users to pay merchants in stores and online. Any Chase customer with an eligible personal Chase Visa debit or credit card, like Chase Sapphire or Freedom, can use Chase Pay, and cards are preloaded for convenience. Customers can also use the Chase Pay app to pay with points at checkout towards a statement credit, pay at the pump, order and pay for takeout, and to access special offers.
“Our vision for Samsung Pay is to create the most rewarding mobile shopping experience, whether consumers checkout at a physical merchant or find great deals within the Samsung Pay app,” said Sang Ahn, VP and General Manager of Samsung Pay at Samsung Electronics America. “We’re thrilled to bring Samsung Pay’s unique technology for the benefit of both Chase and Samsung’s customers by offering consumers more choices and better mobile payment experiences.”
Samsung Pay is the mobile wallet and payments platform that makes it easy to use your phone to pay at practically any cash register where you can swipe a card; all you have to do is tap to check out. Consumers can also earn Samsung Rewards points for every eligible purchase with Samsung Pay.
Chase Pay is the digital engagement tool from Chase. Chase is the U.S. consumer and commercial banking business of JPMorgan Chase & Co.
