Apple Pay Rolling Out at Target, Taco Bell, and Jack in the Box Across the U.S. in Coming Weeks

Apple today announced that Apple Pay is in the process of rolling out in Target stores across the United States and will be available at all of the retailer's 1,850 locations nationwide in the coming weeks.


While it has accepted Apple Pay in its app for quite some time, Target was one of the biggest Apple Pay holdouts in terms of its stores.

Apple Pay is also rolling out to more than 7,000 Taco Bell and 2,200 Jack in the Box locations in the United States in the next few months, and recently became available at more than 245 Hy-Vee grocery stores in the Midwest as well as approximately 3,000 Speedway locations across the country, according to Apple.

With the addition of these national retailers, 74 of the top 100 merchants in the United States and 65 percent of all retail locations across the country support or will soon support Apple Pay, according to Apple. This includes last year's major additions of Costco, CVS, and 7-Eleven.

Update: REDcards cannot be added to Apple Pay at this time, according to Target's customer service account on Twitter. We've confirmed with Target's media relations team that this information is accurate.

Awww what happened to CurrrentC?

How did these retailers ever think that they could get their crappy payment standard to beat something as quick and streamlined as ApplePay? I mean, there must’ve been at least a few higher placed executives who took one look at CurrentC and said: “Guys, this is terrible”.

And another domino falls. Walmart and Publix are the only holdouts here.

This is great news. I hope they incorporate the 5% Red Card discount. If not, this is still a big deal.

Finally! I can't believe how stubborn these last MCX holdouts are. Ok, Walmart you're looking pretty lonely out there.

They held out a lot longer than I expected them to.

This is big for Apple Pay.

I cant believe how far behind the US is when it comes to contactless payments. In the UK, contactless bank cards have been standard for payments less than £30 for years now, and then apple pay came a while after those and can be used pretty much anywhere in a big city like London, or still many places in smaller cities.

In London we've had contactless cards for public transport for like 15 years now as well... How is the US payment system so outdated?!

I don't get why apple pay is rolled out to specific merchants? In the UK you can use apple pay even in the tiniest shop as long as they have a contactless card machine... which they usually do now because they're so cheap even for tiny businesses. How come this isn't the case in the US?
