Has anyone tried Samsung Pay at Petro Canada? Normally you get $0.03/L discount for using an RBC card. Does this still apply for Samsung Pay?
What if there were no hypothetical questions?

It does, you need to wait at least 2 working days though for the token to be registered with Petro Canada though. It's also worth pointing out that some pumps won't support Visa from a mobile wallet (as it doesn't support the older style contactless tech) and you can't use the MST on those type of readers. If your RBC card is a MasterCard it won't be an issue. Visa will obviously still work inside though.

It seems Samsung Pay Canada can be enrolled in Samsung rewards? I'm not sure how, but I drove past a 7-11 in downtown I think and Samsung Pay pushed a rewards notification. I clicked it and it opened up Samsung Pay in app with the below screenshot after enrolling.

The Samsung rewards site says it's only eligible for USA, but I made a transaction yesterday and it credited it as one transaction when I login to check.

This is with a Canadian purchased note 8.

I wonder if this means you could eventually redeem for the $200 USD SAMSUNG Pay Visa?

BTW, I can't seem to access that same page through the app again :/

I've tried at the pump with RBC wallet and Samsung pay at a couple stations. It doesn't work.

Just saw an article about Samsung Pay offering Cashback for purchases made in selected retailers (probably will be US stores only)

Tangerine needs to hurry up with their Samsung Pay implementation...

As I mentioned above. Mobile wallets in Canada on Visa won't work at Petro Canada pumps as the devices only support the newer type of EMV contactless technology (basically the same tech as the chip on the card, whereas the older contactless tech is just a wireless version of a magnetic stripe). An RBC MasterCard on a mobile wallet (or most Amex cards) should work fine though (MSD contactless support is optional though, so it's possible RBC have turned it off on their MasterCards as well but unlikely).

I am using WestJet world elite MASTERCARD. Does not work at the pump for at least 3 stations I tried.

Any one tried their RBC business cards? Couldn't get my Dad's RBC business cashback master card to register with S-Pay. Said its not yet supported.

RBC Banner only mentions Samsung Pay support with Personal cards.

Not just Samsung Pay, tangerine needs to hurry up with all the android payment networks.
