Kohl's Becomes First Retailer to Support Apple Pay for Store-Branded Cards

Kohls-Charge-CardsApple updated its Apple Pay participating issuers list today, adding Kohl's as the first U.S. retailer accepting store-branded cards that offer discounts and rewards. The department store chain confirmed on Twitter that iPhone users can make purchases using Kohl's Charge Cards on Apple Pay starting today.

Apple announced at WWDC 2015 that iOS 9 would support rewards and store-issued cards, including those from Kohl's, JCPenney, Walgreens, BJ’s Wholesale Club and several other retailers. Kohl's briefly announced forthcoming Apple Pay support for its Charge Cards private label credit cards last week, which is now live.

Enhanced Mobile Payment Options: Customers can pay easily and quickly with Apple Pay in stores when they add their Kohl’s Charge as a form of payment. In addition, customers will be able to complete purchases across all digital channels with Visa Checkout, which makes it fast and easy to buy gifts for everyone on the list on Kohls.com and mobile devices.

Kohl's is the largest U.S. department store chain by the number of stores, with around 1,200 as of February 2013.

I need some way of getting rid of all of my punch cards. The "Get 10 pizzas and your next one is free!" things. A lot of local places do that, and I almost always forget to bring my cards for them.

What I want is to be able to tap my phone at Walgreens so I don't have to enter my phone number to get points.
