    Apple Pay is offering a $20 promo code when you spend $100 or more within the iOS Nike app through August 16. This is the latest offer in Apple's long-running Apple Pay promo series, now themed as a back-to-school sale for any students looking for new shoes for the school year.


    To get the code, download the Nike iOS app [Direct Link], make a purchase worth $100 or more, and then pay with Apple Pay. The promo code for $20 will then be delivered to you within two weeks of your original purchase date, and must be redeemed within Nike by November 20, 2018.

    Apple is encouraging students to gear up at a few other Apple Pay-compatible stores and apps, including Staples, Office Depot, JanSport, Walgreens, Jet, and J. Crew.

    It's been a few weeks since the last Apple Pay promo, which offered summertime savings in a range of apps like Fandango, Groupon, Houzz, and Seamless. Previous promotions have also seen Apple team up with StubHub, Adidas, Postmates, Instacart, and many more.

    Seems like a good coupon to me especially with school starting.

    My first thought as well, but you can find bigger discounts around.

    So I spend $100 for something worth maybe $30 if it didn't have the Nike logo on it, but I get $20 back? Woohoo!

    Surely you're not bashing the power of brand image on an Apple forum.

    It was a bit tongue-in-cheek but for the record Iwill unhesitatingly "bash" buying stuff solely/primarily for brand image here or anywhere else.

    I buy Apple products for their functionality / interoperability with the other products I own. Should a different brand better fit my needs, I will buy that with no qualms.

    I'd argue that some people buy Nike products for perceived functionality as well. I purchase Apple products for the same reason that you do, but I'm not convinced that everyone does.

    I think some people buy Apple products primarily for the logo, just as I'm sure do some of Nike's customers.

    Grrr this NEVER worked with Adidas! If you have a debit card associated (in Canada) with Apple Pay (even if it’s a Debit-Visa) , ApplePay defaults to the $100 hard default! Very annoying especially when after the discount is applied is less than $100.

    Yeah, but I'm sure this happens with a many products & companies.

    I'd wager a good amount of people would gladly pay more money for a Sony, Samsung or LG TV vs something like a Westinghouse or a Haier brand...

    There are plenty of generic pain relievers, soft drinks, even apparel....but people will pay more for Coke, Advil, etc.

    There may be many here who appreciate tech more than fashion & apparel, but brand recognition does go along way there as well. I know a couple of people who could care less about tech, but can specifically seek out specific designers!

    The Nike promo seems like it's good for anyone who was already planning on purchasing something from the app (or those planning on buying multiple items)
