    I was going to go for the Upgrade Program but with all these hard pulls and issues I was thinking why don't I use my Discover with the 10% Apple Pay CB.

    Does Apple not take Apple Pay or Am I missing something? Haven't seen anyone do this on the forums as of yet...

    Wow, 10% cash back? That's great. You should definitely do that, it's a much better deal than the upgrade program (if you have the cash to pay it off before interest accrues, of course).

    LOL, I was pretty happy with the 2% my card was giving me.

    I tried to use my Discover card via Apple Pay to pay for the Upgrade Program but got told my card was declined or somesuch. Which doesn't make sense as I have plenty of credit. So I had to whip out my Visa. :(

    I picked up my phone from UPS went to the Apple store, returned it and refought it using Discover 1% + 10% times Double Cash back = 22%. Then stopped at Trader Joes for same 22% cash back. Way to go Discover!!

    Yep, I got two iphones this way. Subsidized phones. Save 22%. It's the way to go. I've already switched the two lines to data only plans @10 a month and put them in the ipads.

    Bought two phones full price + cases +apple care. I was the first customer, they said, "Oh, you're getting your 10% cashback!" First time didn't take, second went through.

    How did you you explain it at the apple store? "can I switch payments"? or did they process a return and sell you a 'different' unit?

    Are you in GR? I almost I'd the same thing with the new Trader Joes across from the Apple Store.

    I did buy 2 iPhone with the extra 10%. First time I used my Apple Watch for Apple Pay atop:). Supposedly Discover is doubling even the 10% bonus if your new and part of the double cash back bonus program. I've got my fingers crossed for 22%, but I'm happy with just 10% extra too.

    Did you return and rebuy the same exact phone? Or did they have to get a different phone for you? I'm thinking of opening and using one, would like to know if they can just return it and let me rebuy the same one?

    Well since mine is still MIA at the UPS hub I may pop into Apple and see if they have it if so I will for sure be using my Discover IT.

    Thanks for your info. Thinking of doing the same. When you did the return and re-buy, had you opened the iPhone or did you leave it still wrapped in the original plastic?

    It was wrapped, they have to return a closed book, otherwise they can't resell it.

    Guess I'll head to the Apple Store and return/buy my phone before I get a chance to play it. Thanks for the info.

    Ugh what the hell? I didn't know discover was compatible with Apple Pay already? I thought it was in October. Missed out on the 10% cash back but I'm gonna start paying with discover and Apple Pay for the next couple months then.

    I used my discover for that and an Apple Watch. I will also use it for the mini 4 and Apple TV. I may hit the 10k mark by 12/31 since the holidays are approaching.

    Couldn't find a 6s plus today in store, so will try to reserve one online in the coming days, and pick it up in the store.
    Can I reserve it online, and then use Apple Pay (with my Discover) in the store ? or will I have to enter the credit card and pay during the online reservation ?
    thanks.

    I was able to return and buy my same phone that I pre ordered using apple pay. It took less than 10 minutes.
