Earlier today Discover released a press release announcing an agreement with Apple that will allow Discover cardmembers in the U.S. to make contactless payments in participating stores through Apple Pay, the easy, secure and private way to pay, using iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch.
In addition to paying in stores with iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch, millions of cardmembers can also use Apple Pay with iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 when paying for goods and services within apps beginning this fall.
Diane Offereins, Discover's president of payment services stated today that "As the mobile payments landscape matures, Discover remains committed to giving cardmembers secure options for using their cards and mobile devices. Discover's focus on simplicity and value for our cardmembers aligns well with the way Apple Pay makes purchases easy and convenient."
Discover credit cardmembers will still receive all of their current benefits, including Cashback Bonus® and the new Freeze It® security tool that allows them to stop any new purchases, cash advances and balance transfers when they temporarily misplace their cards.
As part of the agreement, Discover Network will enable eligible financial institutions, including Discover Debit issuers, to let their card holders use Apple Pay.
