With Apple Pay over a year old now in the United States, we’re still seeing Apple add new partner banks and credit unions across the country to support its mobile payment service. In the latest expansion, over 50 additional participating partners have been added to now work with Apple Pay on iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. Still waiting for your bank to make the jump? These are the latest to join:

In addition to these 54 new partners, Apple turned on support for over 70 more partners at the end of last month. Since then we’ve also seen Kohl’s become the first retailer to let customers use their store credit card with Apple Pay as Kohl’s Charge card was recently added.
Apple also announced that Apple Pay would expand outside of the US and UK by the end of this year into Canada and Australia for American Express cardholders while Spain, Singapore, and Hong Kong are planned for next year under the same partnership.
And if you’re looking for more places to use Apple Pay, it was recently announced that Starbucks will be bringing support to its stores starting this year (it’s already an option within the app but not in stores) as KFC and Chili’s have signed on for 2016.
