Re: Apple Pay for Rogers Bank MasterCard

seriously Rogers, get on mobile payment already. there's enough demand.

MBNA, BMO, AMEX: all have apple pay, why can't you?

this "excuse" of insufficient demand is getting old

Really? No Apple Pay or any kind of mobile pay support? Been years and Rogers still keeps giving lame excuses. Same as when eSIM was released. Lip service for years until they do something. Always way behind. Joke.

Re: Apple Pay for Rogers Bank MasterCard

The only card from the ones I have (credit and debit) that does not support Apple Pay.

Makes me reconsider keeping it...

Seriously. Now that I’m no longer a mobile customer, probably just going to increase the limits on my existing cards and forgo Rogers all together.

Re: Apple Pay for Rogers Bank MasterCard

As mentioned earlier in this thread, it costs money to have this feature.  If my rebates were to decrease because of it, I would prefer to keep a higher rebate rate.

 

Question: Inevitably it may be possible to carry around only a phone, but how many people are able to conduct all their business in this manner and how many people don't have their credit card with them to make payment?

 

PS.  I use Rogers MC for all my credit card purchases, maximizing my rebates and I keep one other card (a no fee Visa) in case there is ever a problem with the Rogers MC or the MasterCard (or Visa) system as there has been occasionally.

Why would Rogers need to reduce its reward program amounts to cover Apple Pay? No other FI did that! If Rogers did that would be completely bogus IMHO.

Re: Apple Pay for Rogers Bank MasterCard

Name me one other free card that offers the rebates that Rogers MC does.

 

1.75% on all purchases

2% on Rogers purchases

4% on Foreign purchases.

 

That's with the Rogers World Elite.  https://www.rogersbank.com/en/

 

Those other FIs probably had more "headroom" to "eat" the Apple Pay charges.  In addition, if they were large FIs (unlike Roges) they may be able to negotiate lower fees, the same way that large merchants pay lower CC fees.

Re: Apple Pay for Rogers Bank MasterCard

I love the justification “but the rewards are the best”

Maybe to you but PC Financial offers 3% on all Loblaws transactions. And Apple Pay

Simplii visa is 4% on restaurants. And Apple Pay.

Tangerine does some good stuff too. And Apple Pay.

So the argument that they don’t have it because they have the best benefit is bogus.

Re: Apple Pay for Rogers Bank MasterCard

The examples you provide are pretty limiting.  It would be like Rogers only providing say 2% on Rogers purchases, but Rogers provide good rebates on everything.    GM also provides a good rebate, but you need to purchase a GM vehicle. Good if that's what you want, but I prefer the cash thank you.
