Use a rewards card

At participating stores, you can receive or redeem rewards when you use Apple Pay.

  • Add your rewards card to Wallet.
  • When you are on the payment terminal in the store, show them your rewards card by holding iPhone near the contactless reader.

Immediately that is done, Apple Pay will quickly switch to your default payment card to pay for the purchase. Note that in some in-stores purchase, you can apply your rewards card and payment card in one step. While in some other stores, you need to wait until the terminal or cashier asks for payment. Therefore, you have to be a bit patient for the process to complete.

Now, for you to have your rewards card show automatically when you’re in the store, tap the ‘3 dots’ on the top of the card, tap Pass Details, then turn on Automatic Selection.

Note: If you have Location Services turned on, the location of your iPhone at the time you make a payment may be sent to Apple and the card issuer to help prevent fraud. See Control the location information you share on iPhone, iPad or Mac.
