    I had two charges for Subway occur on the same day. I knew I didn't go twice so I thought it was a double charge. Then I looked more closely and saw the charges were from different cities (I live on the border of two) and then determined that they occurred on different days but just happened to be reported on the same day. I wish the time was reported but it wasn't.

    Loving Samsung pay. It's definitely one area that Samsung has a leg up on apple. I also love the responses from the cashiers wherever I use it lol

    I don't, I get the same thing in every CVS. We don't take apple pay and then oh I guess they turned it on. I feel like buying an iPhone to carry around and throw it on the floor, followed by jumping on it and screaming this is what I think about Apple pay and iphones. Because when I tell them it's a Samsung pay and that it works with almost any reader. Because of MST technology, which I of course explain as simply as possible. They can't comprehend it.

    Just got my Note 5 & been trying to use it everywhere I can. Most common reaction like most have said is "oh, that doesn't work yet" then I hold it next to the swipe terminal and wait as they see it process the payment. Then I get a reaction like "cool" or "what is that?"

    Ok.. so I stopped at Wawa this morning and was all set to 'Wow' folks with my sorcery. Pulled out my phone and placed it against the machine. Cashier immediately said, "ApplePay won't work". I told her it wasn't Apple. Then.... NOTHING! I tried it twice and nothing happened. I ended up using my physical card and walked out with my tail tucked and head low.... looking like an *****. LOL... oh well.

    Ugggh I don't even want to try it now! Do you have to push anything after entering your pin? Just hold phone over the reader?

    In what way is it easier to pull out a big phone over a little card. I will never get this. I have a chip card. That is secure enough for me...

    Each pinpad has it's "sweet spot." The phone's antenna is in the top 1/3 of the phone. You need to move the antenna around until you find the pinpad's sweet spot. Normally the sweet spot is near the middle or bottom half of the swipe area. I normally hold mine at about a 45 degree angle at the edge of the pinpad. I haven't found a pinpad that doesn't work yet.

    The best way to handle it is to pull your phone out and say something like this, "Let's see if this works. This is Samsung Pay and it's supposed to work everywhere." Once I got the hang of it I felt very comfortable with it. I don't say anything now, it just works. Most of the time the people around me, including the checker, don't even notice.

    There are times when I don't have my wallet. Like when I go to the gym. Or if I'm out for a run. I believe it to be infinitely more secure than carrying a credit card around since it includes two factor authentication.

    Although I will never use it I am pleased it is more widely accepted than Apple pay.

    When I shopped at Publix supermarket, after entering the card via phone, I have to press the credit button.

    Not if the provider (Sammy Pay) is hacked. You could still lose a credit card and someone could still use it. Your bank can still be hacked too. As I see it this just adds one more possible source of ID theft. When I run I would never carry a note phone. I always carry a wallet in case I need ID. We're all different but for ease of use it is hard to argue Sammy pay is easier than a cc. Once the "cool" factor wears off....well u get it. Anyway I do understand many of you really enjoy it so I am glad it works so well at most stores. Although I will never use it I am pleased it is more widely accepted than Apple pay.
    This is completely incorrect, as Samsung Pay uses a "virtual card" number for each transaction and not your actual CC. The information is not stored in any way that can be "hacked". Do your research before you try to spread false information to make people worried about using something that is SAFER than your regular CC.

    I do the same at Publix. Hold. Enter credit. Sign. Leave. Safe, secure and simple.

    I'm not trying to spread false info. I stated an opinion. I am no an IT specialist. I will delete the offensive post if you delete the quote. I just figured I have to give Sammy Pay my card info so that info must be stored somewhere no? Anyway I will delete my post. Not trying to start a war and I know nothing about how financial data is stored.

    Please note I have deleted the part you objected to.

    Just try it.
    It's amazing, and extremely convenient.
    You don't need to enter your PIN, just your fingerprint - the PIN capability is there for when your print won't work - which, for me, is rare.
    If you walk around with your credit cards out, and in your hand, it's hard to beat using a card. I have to agree with the previous poster.

    But, when I am shopping, my cards are in my wallet, and my phone is in my hand. So it makes sense, and is easier, to use SP.
    Plus, unlike Apple pay, it works just about everywhere.
    Love it!

    There are several youtube videos on how to hold it. I've tried mine a few times, but Walmart doesn't work well with AmExpress and so I've only used it twice on my vending machine and it worked great. At walmart I tried on the self serve cash register and the one with the cashier. I also used it at the laundry mat. I only tried it on the dyer, it worked for 3 payments, since it dries in minute increments, I could only do 3 before it locked up. But it will be great on the larger washers that require only one swipe for one payment. I just don't use cash enough anymore and the extra large washers for blankets and such takes over $10 in quarters. They don't take dollar bills.

    For the vending machine at work, it was easier then getting in my locked drawer, unzip my purse, unzip my wallet and take out my card, lock up my drawer, (then repeat in reverse to replace my card so it's secure). I just take my phone off my desk (which is locked with my fingerprint). I was hoping this would be easier at the store as I found a purse with a large back pocket that actually fits my Note 5 with extra room. And I usually look at my phone while waiting in line (better then the trash tabloids).

    If you'd like to learn more about it, there's a discussion area for Samsung Pay (under Apps, Mobile Payments, Samsung Pay). I keep reading that for more tips and information on Samsung Pay. But this is a good general thread as well.

    TRY what this poster (Paul Rezendes) put in another thread.

    I've been getting better and getting mine to work. I talked to a rep at one of the Samsung booths the other day while in a BestBuy. He told me to pull the phone away immediately once the terminal beeps. Ive done that and havent had an issue since. Even at a few places I was getting the decline message at before. He said some terminals think you are swiping over and over if you leave the phone on them for to many pulses.

    I have a chip card. At places that don't work with the swipe but require the chip slot, I can't use Samsung Pay. I've heard that most cards will move to chips next year.

    If that is true then Samsung Pay with become obsolete soon.

    Although just because cards will have chips, it doesn't mean that all merchants will have chip readers. And, any chip reader can read nfc, which also is party of Samsung pay. So it all still works. Samsung would not have invested this way for a solution which would not be strategic and long term in their view. (Eg vs a solution with a 6 month shelf life)

    My cards are chipped and they are set up using Samsung Pay. Dave is correct.

    Some places I went to, I was told the chip reader isn't set up yet, so I had to swipe my chip card instead.

    When adding cards you have to get and enter a verification code. On my US bank cards it gave me option to receive code via text or email or phone call. The Amex only gave me email option.

    My bank only gave the option to call in for verification. I was able to verify my card and add a 2nd one while on the phone had the wifi on too. The activation was within seconds that my banker approved. I felt like a kid at christmas.

    Tried it out tonight and got some serious "WOWS" at Ulta. Wouldn't work at TJ Maxx, but worked fine at Kohl's. It's neat.....but i think using my card might be easier? I'll keep testing it out.
