Apple Pay has finally made its way to Canada. The mobile wallet was previously only available in the US and several other countries. Now that it’s available in more places, it’s easier to add credit cards to your Apple Pay account. However, since the feature is still new and it’s a competitive market, there are a few things you need to know before you can add a Speedway card to your Apple Pay account.
Why Should You Add A Speedway Card To Your Apple Pay Account?
If you’ve been following our blog for a while, you’ll know that we always recommend adding perks to your bank accounts. Perks are basically free items that you’ll only use sporadically but will feel thankful to have. In the case of speedway cards, you’ll use them for track days so they can’t really be considered as perks since they’re often bought for specific occasions.
That being said, we still recommend you add the speedway card to your account. You’ll have the option to link the card to a local store or restaurant so you can make quick, easy purchases should you decide to use it. That’s not something you get with a typical credit card. There’s also the speedway card’s amazing travel benefits which we’ll discuss in more detail below.
How Do I Add A Speedway Card To My Apple Pay Account?
If you’ve been following our blog for a while, you’ll know that we always recommend using a credit card to get the most out of your bank accounts. If you’re looking to add a Speedway card to your Apple Pay account, here’s how to do it.
Head over to the Google Pay App’s homepage and click on the Menu icon in the top-right corner. This will take you to the menu where you can click on Add a Credit Card.
You’ll see the Google Pay credit card page where you can add a credit card of your choosing. You don’t need to add all three letters of the credit card as the number itself is sufficient. Just make sure that you enter the correct billing and shipping addresses.
If you’ve already added a credit card to your Apple Pay account in the Google Pay app, the next step is to switch over to the Settings app on your phone. You can do this by clicking on the gear icon next to your profile picture in the top-right corner of the screen or by hitting the Menu key on your keyboard. Once you’re in the Settings app, scroll down to find the Google Pay section and click on it.
This will take you to the Google Pay settings page where you can select which credit card you’d like to use. If you already have a card linked to your account, you’ll see it listed along with the rewards you’ve accumulated.
Can I Add More Than One Credit Card To My Apple Pay Account?
If you’re looking to add a second card to your Apple Pay account, you’ll have to deactivate the first one first. This can be done by returning to the Google Pay settings page and selecting the card you want to keep. If you want to add a new card, just click on the button that says Add a Credit Card.
Now that your second card is activated, you can add it to your Apple Pay account by following the same steps as above. Make sure that you’ve entered the correct billing and shipping addresses for both cards. You can also find the Google Pay section in the Settings app and switch between the cards there if you need to.
How Does The Speedway Card Work With Apple Pay?
Since the speedway card is a special reward card offered by Chase bank to their customers, it can be added to your Apple Pay account just like any other credit card. You’ll just need to ensure that you enter the correct billing and shipping addresses so you can receive your rewards when you make a purchase.
The best part about the speedway card is that you’ll receive a special offer whenever you use it. When you make a purchase at a store or restaurant that’s registered on the Speedway Card acceptance list, you’ll receive an offer that is usually advertised as a discount. This could be up to 20% off your purchase.
As a reward for using this card, you’ll also receive $2 back for every $1 spent. There are also more traditional perks such as an annual credit card rate reduction.
The offer may not seem like a lot, but it can easily add up to a significant savings over the course of a year. Plus, you’ll be making money in the form of rewards rather than interest. It’s always a good idea to add more perks to your bank accounts.
