Samsung Pay Rewards Program Gets Worse
Update 12/18/2020: Email was sent out, announcing changes that are coming after the end of the year. 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.
