I have discovered that if you use Apple Pay, you cannot add in the discount code at many websites or apps. I don’t run into this issue with PayPal.
With many web sites and apps, you add in the payment, then the discount code. With credit cards and PayPal, you are usually returned to the final checkout screen where you add in the discount code. With Apple Pay, you’re order is completed with no chance for entering the discount code.
I’m usually not a person who does discount codes, but certain stores, like Levi’s, it is automatically assumed you have a discount code. Heck, you go on their website, and they give you one for 30% off. To compensate for this, they usually jack up their prices by 30%.
There is also a tea company I order from
which gives me points I can redeem for cash. I can’t put in my points if I use Apple Pay.
This is something Apple should look into before this becomes the new Apple Tax.
