Amazon Visa Rewards Card Now Compatible With Apple Pay

According to reports on Twitter, Reddit and MacRumors forums, Amazon's Visa Rewards card is now compatible with Apple Pay. Amazon reportedly enabled the feature today, moving quickly to bring the mobile payments service to consumers who were disappointed in Amazon for not supporting Apple Pay at launch.

Apple Pay launched on Monday with support from a large number of credit card companies and banks. Among the launch partners were Chase, which is the issuing bank for the Amazon Visa Rewards card. Amazon reportedly was the only Chase consumer card not supporting Apple Pay, sparking rumors that the retailer was deliberately rebuffing Apple's mobile payment efforts for competitive reasons.


Amazon dispelled these rumors by confirming it would enable Apple Pay soon, but few expected the rollout to happen so quickly. Customers with an Amazon Visa Rewards card should be able to add the credit card to Apple Pay with full support for mobile payments.

Thanks, Apple and Amazon, for playing nicely on this.

Now, could you two sit down and bring Amazon Prime Movies/TV to the appleTV?

Please?

Barclaycard

How funny is it that my Barclaycard (Apple’s credit card partner for purchases) isn’t yet supported?! Oh yeah, wait, it’s not at all comical!

The interest rate of so high on the Barclay Card (over 20%!) that I will never use it after I finish paying off my MacBook (with 0% interest) in the next couple of months. Maybe the interest rate will go down after I pay off the interest free balance, but if not it will gather dust in a drawer or I will cancel it.

Are people really getting upset at a service / provider or vendor if they don't support Apple Pay?

Are we really such 'consumers' that it's a big deal?

I agree Apple Pay is convenient, but really... 1st world problems.

While I haven't gone so far as to boycott any businesses, I will say that once you've been hit with identity theft (one or more times), a payment method that protects your information becomes more and more important.

Signed,

Twice a victim, once for thousands and once that almost got me arrested, and currently waiting for the second replacement card this year due to Home Depot breach.
