At each stop, Samsung will partner with local retailers to provide discounts on items, hands-on activities and other experiences to give consumers an opportunity to interact with Samsung Pay to demonstrate the convenience and safety of the service, which can be used to pay almost anywhere you can swipe or tap your compatible cards.

Samsung is celebrating the launch of Samsung Pay with a seven city tour, in which you'll be able to try out the service while unlocking special offers. The tour starts October 1 at the Austin City Limits Music Festival, and will continue to six more cities. For each city, Samsung has partnered with local retailers to provide discounts and hands-on activities for people using Samsung Pay. The other cities include:

  • Dallas: October 9th – 11th
  • Atlanta: October 16th – 18th
  • New York: October 23rd – 25th
  • Chicago: October 30th – Nov 1st
  • San Francisco: November 6th – 8th
  • Los Angeles: November 13th – 15th

If you live near, or will be traveling to any of these cities during the dates Samsung will be there, make sure you have a supported card loaded up in Samsung Pay. Have you already used your phone to make a payment? Let us know your experience in the comments below.
