When Chase and Apple Pay Isn’t Chase and Apple Pay #

I was quite excited to try Apply Pay, with the new iOS 8.1 update and supported hardware. One of my banks, Chase, is an Apple Pay launch partner, so no problem, right?

Heh. It seems that not all Visa cards through Chase support Apple Pay. Or more specifically, it seems all Visa cards through Chase support Apple Pay, except the one that I have, the Amazon Rewards Card.

After a little searching, GeekWire has a more complete story, where their sources suggest Amazon opted out, but might, maybe, participate, eventually.

Chase has a list of supported cards, so there may be other rewards cards affected.
