As of 12/31/2020 at 11:59 PM PST, you will no longer earn Rewards points for Samsung Pay transactions and gift card purchases. This also means that Samsung Rewards Tiers no longer hold any benefits and we will be ending our Tier program for the time being. However, points can still be earned at Galaxy Store, Samsung.com, Shop app and with other Samsung services and applications. If you are looking for other rewards programs, check out Google Pay.

The Samsung Pay Rewards program has lost lots of value recently. Just a year ago they cut the earning rates and then devalued points. Now there’s more negative changes with lower limits on points that you can earn on each transaction. For the Platinum level, you’re now limited to 3 points per transaction, down from 20 points. Points earned on gift cards purchases have been increased to 30 points at least. There’s not much value left in the program.

  1. What makes this even worse is they want you to buy points from them. And the little points you earn expire so quickly.

  2. I’m sure this was their intention all along The high points system in the beginning of the program was the incentive to draw customers to use the service Now, with a successful service in place, Samsung hopes to retain those customers through “found convenience” alone, and wean off the entire rewards program.

    • Very possible. I’m sure there’s plenty of people who might have switched to a Samsung device just for the rewards.
