    They all accept it
    All they need is a regular card reader
    Doesn't work at gas pumps though

    Same here... I received the email and I activated it but I don't see it in my Samsung pay. Do I have to wait for it to show up?
    It should just show up. I got this number to call about the issue. I will be calling later today. 844-726-7297

    I must be doing something wrong because I've tried to use it several places with my S6 with no luck. The only time I've ever gotten it to work was with vending machines that clearly state they take NFC payment. I haven't tried with my Note 7 yet but I don't see what difference that would make.

    I've only tried once and couldn't get it to work either. I was at a really busy store and there was a line behind me. Didn't wanna be "that guy", so I just pulled out my card. I'll try again today at a quieter location.

    Are you holding the phone over the card reader strip where you swipe?

    I've even used it at Wal-Mart yesterday, with their new card readers, that want you to insert the card to read the chip...

    That's where I couldn't get mine to work. It's the only place I tried so far though.

    Did the reader give you an error? Ive gotten 2 errors from the Wal-Mart reader on 2 separate occasions.... But holding it there a mila second after the error brought a successful transaction.... notification of transaction immediately appears on phone to confirm...

    Try self checkout if they have one

    As soon as I got the card error on Walmart's end I just pulled the phone away to use my card. I was using self checkout, but it was Friday evening and there was a really long line. Didn't wanna be a jerk, so used my card. I'm gonna try again as soon as I can go somewhere less busy this afternoon.

    Do you choose debit or credit if it asks? I chose credit because I think I read on a post here that credit works better.

    I now use credit.... I did debit once and it asked me to put in my pin number, which defeated the purpose

    What do you mean? Do you have to hold it specifically where you would swipe a normal card? When I would try it I wouldn't put it anywhere specifically, generally around the screen/keypad area I think.

    Yeah, from what I've read the back of the phone needs to be in a couple inches of the reader.

    Do you have to activate the promo somehow or do you just pay with the app and it automatically gives you the $20?

    You're suppose to get a notification almost immediately, to accept and activate the gift card... But a few people in this thread did not get that same result

    Did you get the email and the option to activate it within Samsung pay? I did but I didn't get no card.

    I got my Note yesterday, signed up for Samsung pay last night, used it this morning and got the $20. As everyone is saying, pretty simple process.

    For those that don't know, Samsung pay differs from android pay and apple pay in that it doesn't use NFC. Instead it fakes a magnetic signal to the terminal to make it think a card was swiped. This allows it to work almost anywhere. Just hold your phone near the card swipe location on the terminal. Even if the terminal accepts NFC payment you still have to hold it near the card swipe location if you wish to use samsung pay.

    So does this mean NFC doesnt have to be on in order to use it?

    Samsung Pay can turn NFC on when needed so you don't have to leave it on all the time.

    Also Samsung Pay doesn't need an NFC reader to work -- it works on normal card readers as well that do not support NFC.
