Redeemed today, took advantage of it to pick up lunch, came to the conclusion that food at Tim Horton's is terrible...

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...
The "NFC and payment" setting doesn't need to be "On" to use Samsung Pay. I use SPay all the time and this setting is not "On" (explicitly) on my S7 and S9+. Pretty sure the SPay app turns NFC on when you pay and off when you're done. The setting needs to be "On" if you use Google Pay on your Sammy.

Anyway, I had issues getting SPay to work on my S7 (US model) but eventually got it to work after clearing the cache for both Samsung Pay Framework and Samsung Pay under Settings > Apps.

I mean I was checking that NFC turned on by itself when in "paying mode" with Samsung Pay, which it seems to do when NFC is otherwise off.

I'll try clearing the cache. I've resetted the app (it's an option within it, it deletes all the cards and the acts as if opening the app for the first time).

The time I experience the issue and that led me here, the swap "mode" didn't even seem to work. But I was trying to pay with tap to pay at some other place and it wouldn't work, and I placed it near the magnetic reader instead and that worked. If needed I'll do the promo that way...

I'm not even sure why I'm doing this promo other than due to being addicted to free gift cards. I think I'll use it on donuts to bring to my parents.

Some terminals can be finicky and I've experienced my share especially if the NFC reader and MST are in close proximity. If the terminal has both and the MST reader is on the right side, then I usually approach from the left to use tap. There have been times where I thought I had used tap (i.e. check mark in SPay app and pulse stopped) but the pay method was shown as "swipe" on the receipt.

I'd live to use this promo, but on my Chinese Note 8 Duos there is the Chinese version on Samsung Pay app, it only shows me Chinese promos.

Does anyone have an idea how to convert the app into a Canadian?

FYI to all... looks like all the Tim cards have been claimed, even if you were already registered.

I had two transactions left to make but looks like i'm SOL.

When I do the check status, it just says 1 purchase away from reward, doesn't say they are all claimed.

Maybe since I registered earlier this week, they reserved a spot for me since I did 4 purchases already?
