Discover Bank has been trying for quite a while for Apple Pay to support its credit card. Now it is official that Apple Pay is going to make a way for Discover Bank Credit cards. Apple Pay is soon to support Discover cards from September 16th along with the release of iOS9 on the same date.

Discover is also offering a pretty amazing deal to promote the addition of it to Apple Pay by offering you 10% cash back, if you use Apple Pay for shopping of less than or equal to $10,000 till the end of the year. This is not the only offer Discover is offering, as Miles and Escape cards are also going to get an extra 10 miles per dollars and here again the limit is up to $10,000. Using Discover with Apple Pay claims to be seamless and automatic similar to all other cards that Apple supports.

Discover said in a statement, “We are excited for Discover card members to have the ability to use Apple Pay. Rewards have always been important to our card members, and we want to make sure they receive a generous offer for shopping with Discover and Apple Pay,” said Heather Roche, vice president of rewards at Discover. “We want to encourage new and existing Discover card members to add their Discover card to Apple Pay with a few simple clicks using our mobile app, take advantage of this 10% Cashback Bonus, and experience the ease and convenience of using Apple Pay.”
