“Apple Pay on Thursday picked up support for Chime, a U.S. online-only bank, while the brick-and-mortar Chase Bank promised to give away a new Eric Clapton album to Apple Pay users,” Roger Fingas reports for AppleInsider.
“Chime’s Visa-based cards can be added to Apple Pay automatically by scanning them with the iOS Wallet app,” Fingas reports, “or by going through Chime to add them manually.”
“The Chase offer requires that people have a Chase Visa card registered in Apple Pay, and then log into the Chase Mobile app from a compatible iPhone on May 20 so they can tap a banner at the bottom of their account screen,” Fingas reports. “This will eventually take customers to a redemption offer, and launch iTunes to download the Clapton album, I Still Do.”
