It has been a while coming but it now looks as if all Chase business cards can finally be used in Apple, Google, and Samsung Pay digital wallets following an announcement by Chase in the past hour.
Chase is in the process of emailing out holders of its various business cards to let them know that their days of missing out on valuable points because they don’t have their physical card in their wallet are over. The 21st century has finally caught up with Chase’s business cards and they can now be added to Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay with immediate effect.
The text of the email that I received says the following:
A fast and easy way to pay.
Now available for Authorized Officers, add your Chase Ink card to Apple, Samsung, or Google Play. Then conveniently pay with your mobile device in-store, in-app or online.
How to get started:
• Open the wallet or pay app on your phone or tablet
• Select your Chase Ink card or take a photo to add it to your wallet
• Tap to pay in stores with your mobile device or select your card during app or online checkout
Plus, you still have all the benefits and protections that come with your card.
My email is targeted to my Chase Ink Business Plus card (no longer open to new applicants) but I know of people who have receives similar emails target to other Chase Ink cards as well as the co-branded business cards that Chase issues.
Effectively, from today, all of the following cards can be added to the three major digital wallets:
- Ink Business Preferred Credit Card (review)
- Ink Business Unlimited Credit Card (review)
- Ink Business Cash Credit Card (review)
- United Business Card
- Southwest Rapid Rewards Performance Business Credit Card
- Southwest Rapid Rewards Premier Business Credit Card
Note: Where Chase’s email says that the digital wallet option is open to “Authorized Officers” it means that only the primary account holder can add the card to a digital wallet. Employee cards cannot be added.
It’s worth noting that a few retailers may still wish to see the physical card if a cardholder is making a particularly large purchase, but for the majority of us this is great news.
I added my Ink business card to Apple Pay the moment I got the email from Chase as I’ve lost count of the times that I’ve been out without my physical card (my wallet already has far too many cards in it) and ended up missing out on valuable points when an unexpected purchase from an office supply was needed. Hopefully, those days are now in the past.
As of today, all Chase-issued business cards can be added to Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay by the primary account holder. Employ cards are still not eligible to be used in digital wallets but this is definitely a very welcome step.
