Samsung Pay

Samsung’s latest incentive to use Samsung Pay benefits children in need

Samsung will donate a school meal to a child in need every time you use its mobile payment platform—Samsung Pay—instead of an Oyster on Transport for London (TfL) and National Rail services, which covers the DLR, London Underground, London Overground and London River Bus.

There’s a caveat, though. To ensure a meal is donated, you’ll need to use a Mastercard-issued credit or debit card as your preferred payment for travel and seeing as most financial institutions are making the push towards Visa Credit, that may be easier said than done.

Samsung Pay launched in the UK in May

Samsung Pay has been available in the United Kingdom since May. It currently supports a number of the region’s leading banks, including First Direct, HSBC and M&S Bank; however, a couple of big names are still missing from the list (cough, cough, Barclays, Lloyds, cough).

The World Food Day promotion expires on Monday, November 6.

This is great. However, my one supported card is a Nationwide visa. The rest are Mastercard but are not supported on Samsung Pay.

I’d love to support Children In Need, or any cause really, by using Samsung Pay. Unfortunately as Halifax, my only banking provider of my only card, still do not support Samsung Pay I’m forced to use Android Pay.
