Samsung Pay and mobile payment services of its ilk are only as good as the credit and debit cards they support. If you can't insert your bank or credit union into the app, you're still left swiping every time you get ready to spend money. Today Samsung has announced eight additional partners.
The newly supported banks and credit unions are:
- Citizens Equity First Credit Union
- Navy Federal Credit Union
- Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union
- Security Service Federal Credit Union
- State Employees’ Credit Union
- Virginia Credit Union
Samsung Pay is compatible with American Express, MasterCard, and Visa. Thanks to MST support, Samsung Pay works at most terminals that accept any of these cards.
Folks with an eligible Samsung device who have yet to try Samsung Pay can get $100 to spend at Samsung.com if they activate by November 30th. The coupon code can then be redeemed between December 15th and the 31st. Head to Samsung's website to sign up.

- SIMPLE: To make a payment on Samsung Pay, users can simply swipe up, scan their fingerprint and pay.
- SAFE: Samsung Pay uses tokenization, Samsung KNOX, and fingerprint authentication to provide secure payments. And, as terminals are upgraded to EMV, that security is leveraged, too.
- ALMOST ANYWHERE: Samsung Pay is compatible with most existing and new terminals, including most magnetic stripe, EMV and NFC terminals*. That means Samsung Pay works at more places than any other mobile payment service.
