Impossible to use without NFC correct?
Samsung Pay compatible phones can use MST which is just the old stripe swiping tech. That would work for this promotion too.

Happen to know if Zenfone 3 is compatible with this? I remember trying the Amex promo around Dec and I thought it involved Samsung pay and wasn't able to use it, but could be wrong.

Mine works without NFC enabled. I think the NFC is just to simulate a swipe. Just finished all my transactions around 8 pm and got the card from Tom. Thx OP.

Samsung Pay only works on Samsung Phones. All other phones use Google Pay (android non Samsung) or Apple Pay (for Apple phones). The reason it works only on Samsung phones is because Samsung has a modified UI for Android, customized and secured (Knox) , therefore their security is a bit better than the regular Android OS. Some other providers do that, like LG, but I still prefer Samsung.

A free $10 card is the only way I will visit a Timmy. It's a great promo.

I should look up how to do this.

As an aside, anyone know if it's possible to move existing app money onto another gift card? The Tim Hortons app is possibly the worst POS I've ever experienced, second to their coffee. It literally crashes any moment I try to submit my order or scan to pay, it's horrendous. I'd probably feel better knowing that it was planned that way so they could keep your money instead of it just being due to pure incompetance. Seriously, I honestly hate Tim Hortons (and their garbage app).
I also experience tons of issues with the mobile app...whether reloading or placing an order. I do find that it works better and doesn't give me random errors when I'm on data & NOT wifi but that might be pure coincidence.

The promo says 'supplies are limited' but I've already activated the offer. Have they run out of these use Pay x amount of times, get gift card' type deals?

II am surprised how few cards are supported. Tried adding TD Bank Visa and then Costco MBNA card and both didn't work. Looked at the supported cards list and then ended up adding a Scotiabank Scene card that I hardly use.

I just tried to use Samsung Pay, everything was fine on my phone, but the payment wasn't going through. NFC was "on" in my settings...

It's not the first time I have this issue.

Is there any way to test it without being at a terminal, ready to pay? It's a bit awkward to be trying to pay and having people waiting behind you, and having to get your wallet in the end. I guess I could try the McDonald's self-ordering kiosk outside of peak hours when there's no one...
