Nearly one month after Apple Pay launched in Hong Kong, the iPhone-based contactless payments service has expanded to The Bank of East Asia (BEA) and Hong Kong Telekom (HKT)'s Tap & Go contactless payments network.


BEA customers can add eligible MasterCard and Visa credit cards to Apple Pay and receive 5,000 bonus points between now and August 22, while the first 30,000 customers that complete three or more Apple Pay transactions between now and October 31 will receive a 25% cash rebate of up to $180.

Likewise, HKT Tap & Go customers that add prepaid cards to Apple Pay, and complete three or more Apple Pay transactions between now and August 31, will receive a cash rebate of up to $50.

Eligible cards can be added to Apple Pay by tapping the "Add Credit or Debit Card" option in the Wallet app on iPhone 5 and later running iOS 8.1 or above.

Other banks with Apple Pay support in Hong Kong include the Bank of China (Hong Kong), DBS Bank (Hong Kong), Hang Seng Bank, HSBC, and Standard Chartered.

Apple Pay retailers in Hong Kong include 7-Eleven, Apple, Colourmix, KFC, Lane Crawford, Mannings, McDonald's, Pacific Coffee, Pizza Hut, Sasa, Senryo, Starbucks, ThreeSixty, and elsewhere contactless payments are accepted.

I'm really liking the Apple Pay feature more than I thought I would before I got the 6s. I'm glad to see it being adopted more and more, even if it's in places I'll likely never visit. It just adds that much more clout for the service.
