I dunno, I have a US Galaxy S8 and it REALLY likes to show me US promotions, I don't see these gift card promos.

Same with my US Note 8. And even if I do the US promos, I don't get the rewards. I don't think there is a way of getting the Canadian Samsung pay to work on US devices.

I can add a CIBC debit card, but not an Amex or CIBC Visa to the US one. Was looking to see if there's a different apk for the Canadian version or if it's just location based, but didn't find anything.

Interesting glitch.

Tried to tap too big a value on my Scotiabank debit and got the typical tap limit exceeded message, paid with a credit card instead. But after the next transaction, which was only my fourth successful transaction, received both cards. The unsuccessful tap was counted as one of the five qualifying.

I have a US S7 and I can't even add my CIBC debit card. It must be based on the phone model or firmware (I have the Sprint variant).

Made my 5th purchase about an hour ago but did not receive an email.
My email info is entered into my profile settings.

Any suggestions? Perhaps the deal has reached its limit?

Didn't read all thread but is there any way to take advantage of this for non-samsung phone?

The Samsung Pay app is very restrictive; it only works on late-model Samsung phones which are not rooted and for which Knox is not tripped; it does not work on any other phones.

Samsung pay in Canada works only on Canadian versions of the phone. I guess its linked to CES. I used to have HK Note 8 and recently replaced with Rogers version just for Samsung Pay. Good or bad, current Samsung phones are extremely good at security.

For you two, try ensuring that you have both email and phone number updated in settings, it's been working for the rest of us that way

For sure McD works cause I've been using it for half my purchases lol. Just make sure the usual.. have NFC on and hold the phone to the side of the magnetic stripe in case, sometimes I find that holding it near the nap may become an issue for readers that require chip only and not NFC tap
