Samsung launches its digital-first Samsung Pay Card

Tuesday 18 August 2020 11:04 CET | News

Samsung has announced that the new Samsung Pay Card, powered by Curve, and in conjunction with global payments technology company Mastercard, will be available from 18 August 2020 in the UK.

The all-new digital-first Samsung Pay Card gives users complete control over their spending, without having to change banks. From debit cards to credit cards, Samsung's new card collates everything in one place, offering Samsung Pay users streamlined coverage. Moreover, while the Samsung Pay Card is a digital-first product that works on Samsung devices, customers have the option to still get a physical card as well. It uses innovate technology, meaning it does not need to have a number across the front. 

By utilising Curve’s technology, alongside Mastercard’s worldwide acceptance footprint, Samsung Pay users will be able to experience a streamlined banking experience through their Samsung smartphone and smartwatch, whilst gaining the rewards they want along the way.

Some of the main features of the product are:

  • With the ‘Go Back in Time’ functionality, customers can move transactions from one card to another after they’ve been made, giving customers more control of their spending.

  • Customers can claim instant 1% cashback on top of their existing rewards from a wide range of brands. As an added bonus, and exclusive to the Samsung Pay Card, customers can also earn 5% on all purchases at Samsung.com.

  • Samsung Pay Card allows all customers access to the mid-market rate throughout the week, cheaper than the currency conversion fees offered by many high street banks.

  • Samsung's Knox multi-layered defence-grade security offers protection to customers’ finances. In the event of a smartphone loss, access to Samsung Pay Card can be instantly locked remotely using another device from the Samsung ecosystem, without having to contact banks directly – and ‘Find My Mobile’ helps you find it.

  • For a better understanding of payments, customers can see transactions across different cards via the Timeline View in the Curve app, or recent transactions in Samsung Pay, with real-time notifications.
