Use a rewards card

At participating stores, you can receive or redeem rewards when you use Apple Pay.

  1. Add your rewards card to Wallet.

  2. At the payment terminal in the store, present your rewards card by holding iPhone near the contactless reader.

    Apple Pay then switches to your default payment card to pay for the purchase. In some stores, you can apply your rewards card and payment card in one step. In other stores, you need to wait until the terminal or cashier asks for payment.

To have your rewards card appear automatically when you’re in the store, tap the More button on the card, then turn on Automatic Selection.

Note: If you have Location Services turned on, the location of your iPhone at the time you make a payment may be sent to Apple and the card issuer to help prevent fraud. See Control the location information you share on iPhone.
