As others have in promotion of Apple Pay service, Wells Fargo is offering customers up to $20 credits on their bill just for trying out the new NFC-based payments service. Readers sent in screenshots of an email (pictured above) that Wells Fargo has sent out to customers informing them of the credits in a promotion that will last until November 30. The company also confirmed that Apple Pay support for its business Visa cards is arriving next month…
Just check out in a merchant app or look for the Near Field Communication (NFC) symbol at checkout registers in stores and use your iPhone 6 Touch ID™ to authorize payment quickly and securely… Use your iPhone 6 to make an Apple Pay purchase with your Wells Fargo Credit Card by November 30, 2014, and you’ll earn a $20 statement credit.
The $20 credits are for credit card users, but the company is also offering a $10 credit for Apple Pay users with a debit or prepaid card.
Others are offering similar promotions to celebrate the launch of Apple Pay. Earlier this month we reported that Whole Foods stores were rewarding customers with a $5 gift card for trying the new service.
Wells Fargo customers that use the Apple Pay for the promotion expires on November 30th will get a $20 credit on their next credit card statement. Of course the deal, unlike those offered by retailers, is limited to customers with a credit card issued by Wells Fargo:
Apple Pay will work with most of our consumer and small business cards including Wells Fargo Visa® Credit, Debit, and Prepaid Cards; Wells Fargo MasterCard® Credit Cards; and with our new Wells Fargo Propel American Express® Credit Cards. Business MasterCard® Credit Cards are not eligible.
Wells Fargo also revealed that support for its business Visa cards are arriving next month, something that many banks have yet to roll out support for. We have a full list of supported card types through current Apple Pay banking partners here.
