Samsung has announced a new Samsung Pay promotion, but not everyone is eligible.
With this new Samsung Pay offer, you can get a $30 gift card to Best Buy, eBay, GameStop, or Regal Entertainment for making three purchases with Samsung Pay. The catch is that to qualify, you must have already activated Samsung Pay but not yet made a purchase with it. To check if you’re eligible, open your Samsung Pay app and go to More > Events > Personalized Offers.
This promo will run from April 15 through May 10, and it’s available to anyone that owns a Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, S6 active, Note 5, S7, or S7 edge. One other tidbit that’s worth mentioning is that Samsung Pay purchases made with a Bank of America debit or private label (PLCC) cards are not eligible for this deal.
Getting a $30 gift card for just making a few purchases with Samsung Pay isn’t a bad deal, especially since you can get a gift card from one of four retailers. The bad news is that this deal is targeting a certain group of people, as it’s focused on folks that’ve activated Samsung Pay but haven’t yet made a purchase for whatever reason. If you fall into that group, now may be the time to finally make a purchase.
