    I thought Samsung pay could automatically magnetically read any (credit) card I want and then magnetically replay it at payment terminal at command. Turns out it's limited to only a supported list of credit cards and store cards, which sadly doesn't seem to include discover card.
    Will an app be able to do what I imagined ?

    Not even all cards from the same back are supported but I am anxious to use it anyway and fortunately my main card is supported.

    No app will be able to do that because it's a security risk. The reason banks have to be on board is because they use a token system and that has to be approved by your bank. Without that, Samsung Pay would be very easy to spoof and more fraud could occur. So while what you're saying is possible, no company would ever do it

    It's a bummer that your card doesn't work but when you have one that does work it's a pretty glorious thing. Completely blew our servers mind at Dave & Busters when I held my phone next to the cc swipe mechanism on the server station register and it worked! The $20 Samsung bonus card I got right away was a nice bonus too.

    Not all banks are supported. But Samsung adds a bunch of new ones ever month.

    I've been patiently waiting for over a year for Samsung pay to work with my bank. Seems not many banks are on board with it yet.

    It did not work well at first but has improved very much since it first came out. The problems some have may have to do with the cashier or server. Sometimes they have to tell the register that you are using a debit card for it to work and sometimes just doing it twice will work. Now i use the MST tech not the NFC I have not tried it at all, and aside from when i had to hand my card over i used samsung pay on my vacation with no problems and no I was not in a major city.

    I was in the Samsung Pay Beta Program last year (or the year before) and as you said, we were "Blowing peoples minds" only back then, we had to try not to let them know it was blowing our own minds as well!!! :-)

    I have been using it since I got my Note on Fri. It works great. I love it. However I feel your pain. It works with my bank but not my credit union. Hopefully the smaller banks will see its success and get on board.

    if you want to use your discover, try android pay instead. i have my discover in there. granted, that doesnt help if you're trying to get the $20 promo deal thru samsung pay, but if you're just looking for mobile pay in general, ive used android pay with good results.

    I love Samsung pay - and they seem to be adding a lot of banks regularly. My primary card are AmEx anyway, which is supported, but I also have Chase and CitiBank cards on it as well. Even when the terminal has a NFC reader, I often just put it against the card swipe reader to get it done. I forget that Samsung Pay also supports NFC and not just the magnetic stripe. lol!

    The only downside, and this is not Samsung Pay, but anything NFC - is that it won't work if you have a battery case like Mophie on it since it's blocking the NFC antenna.... Wish there was a way around it without removing the phone from the case.

    Yes -- your card must be supported by Samsung Pay. Once it is then yes it will work like it should. This isn't any different than other payment methods like Apple Pay.

    Fun hearing the Sheetz rep when I paid with my phone at her old card terminal: " I didnt even know we were capable of doing that"

    This right here. I didn't use Android Pay at all because they didn't have Chase. Now, I rarely pull out my cards since Samsung Pay works for me. Waiting to get to the point when Chase ATM's will work with it (or with the Chase app, whichever comes first).

    I wish it would accept Discover. But it works with a few of my other credit cards(AMEX, Citi, and Wells Fargo). Which I usually just leave at home now, since I just use Samsung Pay. Bought a water bottle at work, 60 cents and got the $20 Visa Reward card. Nice!!

    I love Samsung pay. I also wish it supported more cards but I had the same issue with Android pay. I know this may not be an option for everyone, but with Android pay, I just got a card that it supported. Once I figured out how to use it correctly, I really enjoy Samsung pay.
