Samsung Pay updated with support for USAA Visa-issued debit cards
At long last, Samsung has started updating its mobile payment platform with support for USAA Visa-issued debit cards in the United States. As you’d expect, the upgrade is being remotely pushed to Samsung Pay in stages on the server side, so you shouldn’t have to do anything to initiate the installation on your handset. Instead, it’ll simply download and install in the background when it’s ready.
It’s worth noting, however, that not all of USAA’s debit cards are compatible at this precise moment in time. It’s only a select few, which means that there’s a good chance your card will get rejected. If this happens to you, don’t panic. The company is constantly adding cards to its lineup and now that the first batch of USAA offerings are supported, it shouldn’t be too much longer until yours is.
Thanks for the tip and screenshots, Nick!
