American Express card holders, it's time to leave your card at home as you can finally add your Amex cards to Samsung Pay.
You get to enjoy all the rewards and benefits as you did using your Amex card normally, as well as get real-time notifications and details about your purchase straight to your preferred Samsung device.
Adding your Amex card is the same as adding your credit and debit cards from before.
Samsung Pay is safe and secure. In addition to your fingerprint, Samsung Pay uses an encrypted digital token for sensitive card information (which means they don't actually hold any of your credit card details). There's also an added security layer from Samsung KNOX, which keeps a lookout for malicious software and dodgy activities happening on your phone.
Samsung Pay is supported on the Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7, and will be available on the Galaxy A9 Pro coming later this year.
The mobile payment service will also be available on the Samsung Gear S3 when it finally arrives. You'll need to enter your card details via the Samsung Gear app on your smartphone, and you're set to pay for purchases with your new smartwatch.
With Amex cards and support for EZ-Link transactions, there's more reason to embrace digital payments than ever before.
