The Fine Print

Our Verdict

These do not earn 3% back on the Citi AT&T card and Chase Ink cards do not work as Chase Business cards are not supported by Samsung Pay. Samsung Pay also has their own rewards program and I assume these purchases would count as a transaction. I think gift cards from the previous deal should still be available as well. Southwest & Overstock are both break even before taking into account credit card rewards, shame about the low volume limits!

    Your details are a little off. The Southwest card is $100, not $50, so slightly more scale-able. Also, the daily limit is $200 or 2 gift cards, whichever comes first. Finally, remember to space your transactions at least 5 minutes apart to maximize Samsung reward points.

    cheapest way to get a samsung pay capable phone anyone? (iphone user here…). i’d sign up for a free ringplus+ plan with it, thus i need a cheap compatible phone.

    • Raul says:

      Not gonna be cheap. Ur looking at spending some 300+ if ur lucky. Has to at least be a galaxy note 5, galaxy s6 or newer phone, so looming at $300+

    My Galaxy Grand Prim does not work for this on Cricket 🙁

  5. Sam says:

    How would this work if you buy SW with AmEx Platinum? Would this qualify for 200 credit?

  6. Eli says:

    Fine print is showing a maximum of $500 worth of gift cards can be purchased during the promotional period (12/8-12/31).

  7. Tan T says:

    DP: buying gift card from Samsung Pay is coded as 2x AMEX Small Business.

    Anyone else getting this error?

    “We’re sorry, the transaction could not be completed at this time. Any charge to your card will be immediately refunded. Please try again later.”

    I’ve been getting that since yesterday.

    • Magesh Govindan says:

      I got the same error message, they have limited my account to $500 for Gift card purchases.

      • Keith says:

        I’m well over $500 of gift card purchases too. You might be right that they are limiting us.

        • Tan T says:

          This morning I tried another Southwest after receiving that message yesterday. It went through. But when I tried another one, it told me to contact customer service. Looks like I am stopped from buying gift cards in SS Pay for at least 48 hours (the duration they said needed to look into my “problem”.
