Samsung says that it will shut down its Samsung Pay Rewards Program by the end of the year, but there are still other points to be earned…
At the end of 2020, just weeks away, Samsung will retire its points program for Samsung Pay purchases. That is, for things bought through Samsung Pay. In other words, people can still earn purchase points buying items from Samsung storefronts and the Galaxy Store. But, if those purchases are made with Samsung Pay, no points are awarded. By extension, this also means the end of the Samsung Tier program.
Samsung Ending Samsung Pay Rewards Program
Samsung first released Samsung Pay, a mobile payment and digital wallet service by Samsung Electronics, in late August of 2015. It’s based on the Android operating system. Since that time, it’s undergone a number of changes. Samsung is sending an email out to its Reward members, explaining the change:
“As of 12/31/2020 at 11:59 PM PST, you will no longer earn Rewards points for Samsung Pay transactions and gift card purchases. This also means that Samsung Rewards Tiers no longer hold any benefits and we will be ending our Tier program for the time being. However, points can still be earned at Galaxy Store, Samsung.com, Shop app and with other Samsung services and applications.”
