Doesn’t work for Groupon. Support is clueless. Shocking.

Looks like a scam to direct traffic with no actual “deal” related to ApplePay.

Wonder if these can be compounded with other deals. For instance, Groupon often offers 20% off local deals. Wonder if you can throw this 20% on top of that 20% coupon code.

So if ApplePay is so great, why don't Apple offer discounts for their stuff (instead of just other people's) for using it.

Once again, US only.
Does Apple not have a marketing team outside the US?
Is it really that hard to do some deals here in Aus or literally anywhere else that supports Apple Pay??

Exactly.

Poland is a quite poor country. They could pour some dollars and the promos for using Apple Pay would be all over the Polish Internet.

When a Bottle of 1L Coke costs 1 USD, supplementing for example, 20 cents of each would bring CocaCola price to some historically cheap level of prices.

Just a suggestion, but basically and promo to any shop in Poland would be nice.

Just to have some publicity.

I used the Seamless and GrubHub coupons. But you’ll need to change your phone number to do both. They are essentially the same company.
