    That's awesome. What state are you in? I am visiting New Jersey and I am going to try at Wawa. I need two more taps for my DD $5 card. I am sure I can get that at Acme.

    I've recently used Samsung Pay at Walgreens, CVS and Walmart with no issues. Sometimes wonder where these media reports come from. Only issue I've ever had, and continue to have, for some reason Amex and Walmart don't work together with SP, but my Visa works fine.

    CVS used to take SoftCard then purposefully disabled all NFC payments from their terminals:

    CVS, Rite Aid Baffle Payments Industry With Decisions To Block NFC, Apple Pay

    They did it b/c they were partnering with Walmart to develop their own NFC payment system called Current C.

    CVS, Rite Aid and Wal-Mart among 50 retailers that have refused NFC payments – Tech2

    That was before Samsung pay even came out. SP has never worked at CVS. You were likely at Walgreens.

    AFAIK, it doesn't work at Walmart even with debit card. Like CVS they have disabled NFC payments.
    Samsung pay uses MST and NFC. So disabling NFC has no affect on Samsung pay not working....
    Samsung pay has been a hit and miss for me too at Wal-Mart.... I've used the same terminal at Wal-Mart and have had it either go through (successful) although the card reader showed an error or just not go through at all, with error on the card reader....

    Been using Samsung Pay for a few days now - enough to get both the $20 debit VISA gift card and the $5 Dunkin' Donuts card. In a couple instances I have had to retry the transmission before the card reader would see it, but has never failed to work completely, including one case where the cashier kept telling me it wouldn't work because they don't take Apple Pay.

    I used it 3 times yesterday, first time using my credit card, cashier was so excited to see it in action and I tried and nothing happened, but I saw the display didn't say to swipe your card or anything and asked her if she set it? She apologized said she was too excited to see it she forgot, as soon as she did I retried it and worked. Next time I wanted to use the reward card which I still have a balance on, bought a game card from a machine they have and it worked without any issue and I still have balance on the card. And finally I paid at olive garden at the table kiosk thing without any issue.

    Today I tried to use remaining balance of reward at walmart and it failed a few times and I switched to my credit card and it worked fine, so either they still have a problem with the reward card or I can't use it to pay partial. The card did register the swipe but it would fail after asking for PIN. Also I received notification for my dunkin donuts reward yesterday but I can't load the card as it fails, I spoke with samsung rewards this morning about the dunkin donuts promotion and they said they are aware of the issue and are working on it. It should be noted I only used this reward card once successfully at this same walmart and have failed twice now, the first time when it worked when it asked for pin I hit change payment then hit credit and it just worked (it's no longer working like that).

    I've been using it successfully since it came out in most places. However, I've been having problems using the Samsung Debit card of all things. Did you use it as a Debit card, or as a credit card?

    Also, for folks trying it at Walmart, I know Walmart has it's own payment system for Android. It's theoretically possible that as they roll it out at their stores they'll stop accepting other payment types. Just a theory.

    When the reward card worked at walmart, I had selected credit/debit and used the device then it asked for pin and I hit change payment on the button that is on the screen where you enter your pin. Two other times since it hasn't worked at walmart. The other place I used it was as credit, didn't ask for pin. I don't think Walmart can stop this payment method as it is like swiping your card.

    Thanks. I'll try using the Samsung card as a credit card next time. I bet that will work. Much appreciated.

    Guess I'll go for the $5 Dunkin Donuts card after 3 uses. Question, what happens if I order $6 worth of food at Dunkin Donuts? Can I still use the $5 gift card for partial payment? How? I'm not so good with these things...

    I used mine yesterday. I bought $5.24 worth of stuff; the cashier scanned my coupon's QR code off my phone, which brought the total down to $0.24, and I paid the remainder in cash.

    It definitely doesn't work at CVS. You probably used it a Walgreens. CVS has their own CVS pay that they want you to use.

    CVS joins the digital payment app parade

    "Apple, Google and Samsung believe they have an edge because their devices come equipped with payment capability upon delivery to consumers. Users can load payment options into Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay, authenticate their identity on the phone while at the cash register and tap or hover their device to complete the transaction.

    But for now, CVS and Walmart aren't accepting those three options."



    SP works at Walgreens though.
    As stated.. I knew I wasn't at Walgreens. I used it just now at CVS without issue since Samsung Pay doesn't require NFC and can be used as a normal card. Samsung pay just doesn't work reliably. I don't care what the commercials say-1473117741974.jpg

    Little update (not good for us SP Users), Lowe's and Home Depot have 'updated' most of their terminals (and if it's still not in your store, it will be soon) to be 'swipe' + PIN for debit and Chip for credit. No NFC terminals, however, so if you want to use SP with these stores, you'll have to use debit as credit won't work because it'll need the chip (which requires you to pull out your card, anyway).

    My card has a chip but when using Samsung Pay it doesn't ask for it even if at a store that requires it.

    Yup, it's not just about the card. Just tried and confirmed with them that those terminals will require a chip for credit cards (so credit cards without one are also out!) and will only accept swipe/PIN for debit. They're even putting little stickers on the terminals for that.

    I think that information is bogus. Samsung Pay using MST sends information to the issuing bank, via the terminal, that this is a chip-free card. Bank then acknowledges and the token exchange starts to process the transaction. Hard to believe that Lowes would turn away all business from those customers who do not have chipped cards, of which there are many. Sometimes the IT folks don't fully understand the systems they are working with,.
