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.
Great question! At this time REDcards cannot be added to Apple Pay, Google Pay or Samsung Pay. You are still able to use your REDcard via the Wallet in the Target app to simplify your checkout experience and save on deals with Cartwheel. Hope this helps!
