    Anyone else using Samsung Pay? 2 days ago I changed over to Chase bank which supports android and have been having a blast using Samsung Pay. It works everywhere you can slide a card to pay no need to look for tap n pay- it works on any slide your card payment system old or new. The only place so far I couldn't use it at was the pump where you insert your card and pull it back out. The slide your card terminals work great. Loving it!

    I'm a huge fan of Samsung Pay (and mobile payments in general). I also really like how Samsung added loyalty cards into Pay and let's it use the Mobeam technology to scan barcodes everywhere even on the old style scanners. That Mobeam technology never gets talked about when sites talk about Samsung phones but it's really handy to have. I never take out my wallet anymore!

    It is the hardware installed in Samsung phones running Samsung Pay that allows Samsung Pay to work on MFT (read old technology) card scanners.

    Mobeam is something different from Samsung Pay. It's technology that lets Samsung phones display barcodes that are readable by old style laser scanners at places like grocery stores, gyms, etc. It doesn't have anything to do with MST.

    Previously you needed to use an app called Beep'N'Go to activate the feature but it works with Samsung Pay now too. There's almost no videos or blog posts that cover the technology but it's great and very handy. I can scan my barcode at the gym when it doesn't work on either iPhones or other Android phones. It's great!

    I activated Samsung Pay a year ago when I got my phone, but I never used it. I just started using it this week because my actual card isn't swiping well (it swipes some places but not others). And yes, Samsung Pay is GREAT!

    Mobeam uses the proximity sensor.

    I've been using it for a while now and like it a lot, especially the fact that it uses tokenisation instead of transmitting your card details during the purchase. Another nice feature is the merchant doesn't have your card details in their system meaning should they get hacked your card details are not on their files. This happened to me a few years ago with my debit card, luckily my bank caught it right away and refunded the charge, cancelled the card and issued me a new one. I had been using it with NFC turned off but a few weeks ago I went to Total Wine & More (large liquor store) and they had new card readers installed and MST only did not work, I had to turn on NFC in the phone settings to get it to work. Other than that, never had an issue.

    Samsung Pay automatically turns on NFC when you use your fingerprint to enable a payment. You can even see the icon in the top tray briefly if back out quickly.

    I don't have NFC enabled and it still works. I try to use NFC instead of MST when the terminal supports it because it seems to be faster.

    Your right, I turned NFC off in settings, launched SamSung Pay and swiped down like I was going to go into settings and saw the NFC icon. When I closed SamSung Pay the NFC icon was gone; I wonder why it didn't work at the store then, it used to before they got the new machines... weird.

    I've also seen some wacky behavior if the terminal supports NFC. If I put the phone too close to both the NFC reader and the card swipe slot I've seen a message on the terminal that says "present only one card" or similar. I've seen it at multiple locations. I'm guessing it's because it tried to send the card data with both NFC and MST at the same time.

    Just a guess. Otherwise in general it seems like NFC is faster overall. But both work great!

    Went into Target today, took my phone out and put it next to the terminal and the cashier says "sorry, we don't take Apple Pay", and I replied, I know, "beep", I have Samsung Pay; grab receipt and walked. That's power.

    I didn't realize there were so many offers. So far from using my card for less than a week I go:

    $10 Amazon gift card
    $20 Nike gift card (could have chose between five things but chose this one)
    $30 Nike gift card (same thing as above)
    And in two more purchases I will be able to get a $50 gift card (probably to Nike)

    And on top of all that, I look like a boss when people say, "oh we don't take that.............beep. I know you do cause it's Samsung pay not that Apple crap."

    Yeah I got a $50 Sprint credit last year. And my wife got a $50 Best Buy gift card last year. Samsung is definitely willing to spend some serious cash to get people to use Samsung Pay.

    When did you receive the $5 off? I did this last night and it didn't come off my bill automatically, the server thought it would not charge me at my bank account but it's still pending the full amount. Thanks in advance!

    The only problem I have is at stores that require the chip card to be inserted. When I try Pay it either say card read error or does nothing. Just tried it at a Home Depot this week and it would beep but not actually do anything. Anyone else having issues with chip cards and readers?
