Yes, many Discover cards are Apple Pay-compatible. This includes Discover it® Cash Back, Discover it® Miles, Discover it® chrome and six other cards that are no longer available to new applicants. But a few Discover cards can’t be used with Apple Pay. They include Discover it® Student Cash Back, Discover it® Student chrome, and Discover it® Secured.
Discover’s Apple Pay-enabled cards allow you to pay for your purchases with your iPhone or Apple Watch instead of your physical card. Purchases will still show up on your normal credit card statement, and you’ll earn all the same rewards. Just remember that Apple Pay only works with a 6th generation iPhone or newer, or an Apple Watch. You can also use iPads that meet the generation requirement, but only for online or in-app purchases, not in stores.
Here’s how to use your Discover Card with Apple Pay:
1. Go to your device’s settings menu.
2. Tap “Wallet & Apple Pay.”
3. Hit “Default Card.”
4. Enter your Discover card’s info and confirm.
That’s all there is to it. You can also use Apple Pay to spend your Discover card’s cash back rewards. All you have to do is make a purchase with Apple Pay, hit “Tap for Details” on the confirmation message, and select the option to redeem your cash back as a statement credit for the purchase.
