27 Places Where You Can Use Samsung Pay (Stores, Restaurants, etc)

Samsung Pay logo on a phone

Samsung Pay allows you to save credit card, debit card, and gift card information and make secure payments at stores, on websites, and via apps.

Because it uses both near-field and magnetic transmission technologies, Samsung Pay does not require retailers to upgrade their point-of-sale systems. That means you can use Samsung Pay at nearly any in-store credit card terminal — as long as the store allows it.

While most brick-and-mortar stores that accept credit cards also accept Samsung Pay, a limited number of online stores and apps accept Samsung Pay as a payment method.

Places that accept Samsung Pay include gas stations like BP, Circle K, and Speedway; grocery stores like Kroger and Whole Foods; restaurants like Applebee’s and Olive Garden; and retailers like Target and Walmart.

For more information on what stores accept Samsung Pay — and how to use it — see below.

The List

We’ve compiled the list of stores, websites, and apps that take Samsung Pay.

To confirm this information, we contacted Samsung and customer service representatives for each store.

Note that even when shopping at stores that accept Samsung Pay, it’s also a good idea to have a backup method of payment in case the card reader has trouble accepting the payment.

How to Use Samsung Pay

Samsung Pay uses near-field communication (NFC) and magnetic secure transmission (MST) technologies, both of which require you to hold your phone or smartwatch up to the credit card terminal.

For NFC payments, you can tap your device on the terminal; MST payments simulate the magnetic strip on a credit card when you hold your phone against or near the terminal. NFC payments can be used by all supported devices.[1]

To use, open Samsung Pay, select the card you want to use, use your phone’s iris or fingerprint scanner for verification, and hold your phone up to the credit card terminal. For online or in-app purchases, you can authenticate the purchase using your iris scanner, fingerprint scanner, or PIN at checkout.

Compatible Devices

Samsung Pay is available on Samsung Galaxy smartphones from the Galaxy S6 to newer models, the Galaxy Note5 and newer models, the Galaxy A5 and newer models, the Galaxy M62 and newer models, and Samsung’s Galaxy Z series.[1]

Your cellular plan must also be with one of the following supported carriers:

  • AT&T
  • Cricket
  • Metro by T-Mobile
  • Sprint
  • T-Mobile
  • Verizon
  • U.S. Cellular

You can also use Samsung Pay with some Samsung smartwatches. Devices that are both MST and NFC supported are:

  • Gear S3
  • Gear Sport
  • Galaxy Watch
  • Galaxy Watch Active
  • Galaxy Watch Active 2
  • Galaxy Watch3
  • Galaxy Watch4
  • Galaxy Watch4 Classic[1]

Compatible Cards

You can use credit cards and debit cards with Samsung Pay. American Express, Mastercard, and Visa cards from more than 1,000 banks and credit unions — including Bank of America, Chase, Citi, Discover, Fifth Third Bank, PNC, and Wells Fargo — work with Samsung Pay.

To begin using Samsung Pay, take a photo within the app of each compatible card you want to save.

Additionally, the app can store practically any card with a barcode, meaning you can save and use loyalty cards, membership cards, and gift cards.[2][3]

Some of the merchants that allow you to save their gift cards in Samsung Pay include Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Best Buy, DSW, Foot Locker, GameStop, and Nordstrom.[4]
