Amercian Express has debuted a new television commercial on U.S. broadcast and cable networks that promotes Apple Pay as “the next evolution of membership.”
Experience Membership like never before. American Express’ timeless safety and security are now available on Apple Pay.
American Express was one of the three major payment networks top support Apple Pay at launch, along with MasterCard and Visa.
American Express’s Apple Pay ad:
Speaking of Apple Pay. Home Depot refused my purchase with Apple Pay on my Debit/Visa card on a purchase over $100. Wanted to scan the card directly. So they wanted to use a less secure system for a larger purchase. I didn’t try a smaller amount. So I don’t know if it was a direct rejection of Apple Pay or if they were just being stupid about security.
May have been the checker.
I’ve used apple pay for purchases over $100 before. Thursday last week was last time.
So I wonder what the problem is.
Home Depot has accepted mine multiple times, but I never purchased over $100.
I am going to call my bank and ask them if this is their fault.
Same thing just happened to me. Have business debit on apple pay. Wanted me to scan…
I’ve used business debit elsewhere without a hitch.
This is going to be huge for American Express. I’ve had my AmEx forever. They’ve bailed me out in a huge way when travelling. I will always have one in my wallet.
Unfortunately you can’t use an AmEx everywhere.
I imagine this will significantly expand the number of retailers that can “accept American Express”.
Kind of reminds you of lions & possums or dogs & elephants playing together harmoniously, doesn’t it? 😉
So American Express are making Apple Pay more secure are they, that’s nice to know and how generous of them.
