When Apple Pay launched nearly a year ago in the United States, Discover cards were notably unsupported as the issuer wasn’t among launch partners Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. That changes today as Discover has officially signed on to support Apple’s mobile payment service.
Several 9to5Mac readers have reported that Discover cards can now be activated this morning ahead of iOS 9’s release later today. As its late to the party, Discover is giving its card member’s an added incentive to use Apple Pay: 10% cashback on in-store purchases up to $10,000 through the rest of the year.
