Previously only available in the UK and the US, Samsung’s Pay Cards can now be acquired in South Korea as well. In a collaboration with MasterCard, Samsung is finally able to bring its physical card to its home country. Everything can be managed within the Samsung Pay app – from transactions and payments to security-related options.
The Samsung Pay card now offers a 1% discount for offline purchases and 1.5% for online transactions. But until December 31 this year, the card will offer 0.5% additional discount for Samsung Pay-related payments and 2% for online shopping sites. And if payments are made at the Samsung Pay coupon shop, users can receive a 3% discount.
Of course, the card will work with all offline retailers that have NFC terminals. Buying something from abroad might earn you a 5% discount but that’s limited to KRW 100,000 per month.
