Apple really wants you to try out Apple Pay. The tech giant is trying to lure new users to its mobile payment service by offering its iPhone and Apple Watch customers (in the United States and the United Kingdom) a $5 iTunes gift card to sign up for the service.
The new Apple Pay promotion (and $5 iTunes gift card) is only available to Apple customers in the United States and the United Kingdom who are new to Apple Pay. MacRumors explains how the promotion works:
When making a purchase in [an Apple] store, Apple employees will ask customers if they would like to pay via Apple Pay. If a customer declines and does not have Apple Pay set up, employees will guide customers through the setup process to make the purchase and will offer a bonus $5 or £5 iTunes gift card for using Apple Pay as their payment method.
The offer is good on any Apple store purchase, including an iTunes gift card. If you take advantage of the offer but opt to return the product you purchased later on, you still get to keep the complimentary iTunes gift card, says MacRumors.
Apple Pay allows users to pay for purchases at many retailers with just a thumbprint and their iPhone (or an Apple Watch or newer iPad).
Apple Pay is currently available in the United States, the U.K., China, Australia, Canada, Switzerland, Singapore and France.
