In for 5 seperate timbits.

Can I top up my Presto card 5 separate times to qualify? Not sure if I can use Samsung Pay at those Presto machines

Edit: Just tried it myself, Confirmed you can use it to top up your Presto card and it'll count towards the 5 purchase requirement.

Been a while, last time I remember that they did a promo was when I got a free pair of Gear Icon X Ear Buds for using Samsung Pay in like October or November.
So you were one of those few lucky customers. Must be nice.

Did you have to wait between transactions?
I just loaded 3 times and it only counted as 1.

You need to wait 5 minutes in between each purchase.

Same here. I made four purchases after activating the promo, but it still says "5 purchases away from reward"...

After using Google Pay I find Samsung Pay irritating. To use it, you have to unlock the phone, open the app, select the credit card, and scan your fingerprint. It requires too many steps and does not work half the time. The only advantage is that you can use it at Walmart, but when using at Walmart you also have to sign the receipt after it's printed, resulting in a total of five ridiculous steps.

Try removing the card from the app and re-adding it. I had the same problem last promo, tried that and it worked.

Edit: You'd have to make the purchases again. It's possible the app just takes time to update. If you remove the card the purchases you made will probably be forfeited.

Damn ok that's not worth it then. I already made 3 purchases and not willing to make more frivolous purchases just for a $10 tims card. Thanks anyways.

I enjoy using Samsung pay because it requires verification to use it. For Google Pay anybody can grab my phone and make purchases which feels insecure to me. Plus, it works that non-tap places which always shocks the cashiers.

You can set an option called Favourite Cards.

In Samsung Pay settings, under Favourite Cards, choose your most used card(s) and set it to swipe from lockscreen (or home screen or even when screen is off).

Makes it a bit faster

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.
I can use my Samsung watch on a Razer phone 2 and it works good.

I finally have a credit card that is supported by Samsung pay, my Brim MasterCard. So I'm glad to be able to get in on this promotion. Thanks OP.

Correct. Purchases can be made anywhere, I think they meant 10 timbits because they are a dime each, lol.
LOL, when is the last time you bought an individual Timbit?
