Is there a special way to add the card or are you just taking a picture of it and manually putting the code in the app?
I guess I just dont understand how scanning a picture of your card through your app is any different then just using your card, like how do they track this?
Someone else mentioned that they tested the barcode itself in the app and that's where the extra digit or some other tracking data is communicated when you scan it.

Oh ok. When I tried the bar code in the Air Miles app before, wouldn't scan but the Samsung Pay one works and they were actually surprised that it worked.. I also tried scanning it using our old scanner and it also worked.

Guys: I think they just award the 5 miles to EVERY air miles transaction in the period because they have no idea whether you've used samsung pay...

1. I got 5 points (stating samsung offer) on my purchase of shell gas, even though I swiped my physical card
2. I got 5 points for my monthly payment to Johnson insurance, even though I didn't even use my card (my card number is stored with Johnson and points are added whenever my monthly payment occur; I added my card like a year ago so there's no extra digit or whatever)

Hope they dont fix this lol

Just say enter air miles in account settings ? So I did that with the lock button... is that the correct procedure to link Samsung pay ? How long does it take to get the 50 miles ? Hoping I did it right

For me this promotion didn't work. No miles at all. Maybe I had account before but I don't remember

Finally got my first standard offers after the 2x50 AMs.
I never used the app, just the physical AM card, so that works.
However not sure why only 2x as I've flashed my card at Metro 4 times and also LCBO.

No longer 50x2 AMs :(. I registered mine before and got 50x2. So I decided to register for my wife & my daughter too. I checked and they only received 50x1 today. I guess they have fixed the glitch. BTW, none of us have Samsung phones, we just registered for the 50AM

I have an almost brand new Samsung A5 but it says my device isn't compatible with Google Pay. What's the deal with that?

Works fine on my A5. Are you running stock firmware? Doesn't work if you are rooted.

Anyone else have problems scanning at Safeway?
I've turned my brightness as high as possible, but it won't scan at the self checkout and the cashiers refuse to use the phone (they want to manually type in the am number)
Thanks

Which phone? I use a new A8 and it scans fine with the brightness all the way up. When I'm at a cashier, I'll reach over and scan the phone myself after asking the cashier to just let me try (100% success so far). Also, if no one's answered this, I've gotten the 5 AM every time I've scanned my phone, even when it's just for a can of soda.
