I hope that Discover won't require iOS 9 to support Apple Pay... I like my jailbroken iPhone.

Wow. You put your credit cards on a jailbroken phone? Living on the edge. Do you loosen the brake lines on your car just for fun? ;)

My jailbreaking days ended when I put my credit and debit cards on my phone.

well I will be traveling to chicago in a couple of weeks for business. Will install my Amex and see how it fairs. Frankly I am expecting it to not work at all -- Amex is accepted in less places compared to Visa and MC. And so far unless I go to McDonalds for lunch I don't know of where else I will be able to use the Amex. Basically this is a whiny post about merchants not taking Apple Pay. I will go now.

Hopefully US Bank Corporate Visa isn't far behind! Not really sure why "Corporate" cards seem to have an extra technical hurdle. It can't really be based on the corporate customers not allowing it, or then they would roll out corporation by corporation rather than card issuer by card issuer.

I do know that corporate cards do somehow flag as being special....when I've used mine at Home Depot and other places, the cashier asks if I want to include a PO Number. Maybe ApplePay has to create a token card number that still flags as a corporate card and allows this data to be passed back to the company.
