Android Pay lets you use your smartphone to place payments at retailers all around the globe. In the United States, you can use it for convenience or, commonly, to save a few bucks. It hasn’t always been very easy to find the deals, however, which is why Google launched a new dedicated promotions page for Android Pay.
The page shows you all of the reasons you might want to use Android Pay instead of cash, credit or, heck, even a competing service like Apple Pay or Samsung Pay. Use it with DoorDash, for example, and you’ll say $5 off your order. Same goes for Yelp’s Eat24. 1800 Flowers is knocking $20 off the total order for the first 1,000 Android Pay users. 1800Contacts, Instacart and Uber all have deals, too, with Uber offering $10 off your next ride if you use ANDROIDPAY in the promotion section.
I don’t typically use my phone for mobile payments – Apple Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay or otherwise – but now that I know where I can look to save money, I’ll probably start to think about it a bit more.
