The latest Apple Pay promo has launched today, offering users the chance to get up to three free restaurant deliveries in select apps.

To take advantage of the March Madness-themed promotion, customers can enter the code "HOOPS" at checkout in Grubhub, Seamless, and Eat24 (in apps or on websites), and pay for their orders via Apple Pay to get a free delivery.

The offer is limited to three redemptions per diner and three per device during the promo period, and does not cover the cost of the meal in the order. The new promo will end on April 2, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. CT.

Apple is also encouraging customers to checkout faster using Apple Pay within food apps like Pizza Hut, Subway, and BevMo!, as well as clothing and ticketing apps including Nike, SeatGeek, and GOAT.

The last Apple Pay promo was for TouchTunes and gave anyone on Spring Break the chance to add three free song credits to their account in the jukebox-like iOS app. Prior to that, promos have launched for Fandango and Instacart multiple times, Postmates, and more.

I should be able to walk in pretty much any store with a touchpad card reader and use Apple Pay. The only place I use it is Wegmans. We're 3 or 4 years in and this is as good as it gets?

Ridiculous

Not the fault of Apple. A lot of small businesses owners don’t want to spend the extra money in upgrading readers etc

Besides the places that deliberately turned it off, POS machines with contactless payment ability should support Apple Pay. I can use Apple Pay in some unexpected places and cashiers don't even know that could work...

I feel like NFC is going to lose its importance over time as stuff like Amazon Go, delivery services like Eat24, etc. pick up steam. Why wait in line to pay for stuff at all if you don't have to?

(On that note, I should develop a proof of concept that allows "cashier-less" checkout like what Amazon Go does without needing a separate app. It should theoretically be possible since Apple Pay allows use on websites and Safari on the phone can access the camera.)

It’s always interesting when a credit card terminal accepts it, but the employee is still standing there telling you to swipe your card.

I had that happen to me, and it was at an Express when AP rolled out about 2 months prior, which was an Apple Pay launch partner. They had the signage right there on the reader and everything and their cashier was arguing with me about being able to pay with a phone. It ended up working, but I did take the very rare step of reaching out to a corporate department to ask them to enhance their employee training. It was really annoying to have to read the store's own signage to their own employee and explain what it meant.

Jesus, I misread this as "three free deliveries from ****Hub". I have to get out more.

In Canada that’s exactly how it works, even though it took us a bit longer to get the feature. Anywhere that supports tap (about 75% of terminals) supports Apple Pay.

I recently travelled to Australia for the first time. I was there for 8 days and I paid for literally everything with Apple Pay. Not once did I have to pull out cash or a credit card.

The difference is that tap terminals are mandatory there.
