NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Samsung Electronics America, Inc.:
|WHO:||Samsung Electronics America, Inc.|
Continuing to drive innovation in the digital wallet experience, the Samsung Pay service today announced a first-of-its-kind incentives program for a mobile payments platform in the U.S.: the “Samsung Rewards” program, coming this week to Samsung Pay.*
For every transaction users conduct with Samsung Pay, enrollees in Samsung Rewards will earn points, which can eventually be redeemed for a variety of items, including gift cards to some of nation’s most popular retailers, prepaid Samsung Rewards Visa® gift cards, Samsung products and more.
After a certain number of monthly transactions, enrollees will achieve different status tiers for that month to multiply the points they receive. Five transactions in one month, for example, will give a user “Silver” status and twice the points for every transaction they conduct using Samsung Pay. 20 monthly transactions awards a user “Gold” status, resulting in triple points, and 30 monthly Samsung Pay transactions puts a user in the “Platinum” tier where they earn quadruple points.
In addition, the program will award select active enrollees with “Instant Win” prizes, starting with a trip for two to Napa Valley, with new prizes rotating regularly.**
Users will be able to track their points and rewards status, browse offers, and redeem their points directly within the Samsung Pay app and eventually via Samsung.com. ***
Samsung Rewards represents Samsung Pay’s latest innovation to push the service beyond just credit or debit cards and provide enhanced features and functions to make it a holistic digital wallet.
