Samsung is adding a cash back feature to its mobile payments service, enabling American users to get money back on purchases made at partner retailers.
In a new Cash Back section of the Samsung Pay app’s home screen, users will find a range of exclusive offers from retailers.
When they click on the offer they want and complete a purchase through the participating merchant, the user will receive a percentage back which they can then spend toward a purchase anywhere they use Samsung Pay.
Meanwhile, the firm is planning to start letting users buy Samsung Rewards points, in the same way that airlines offer the chance to purchase extra miles.
Samsung has also been talking up its much-maligned Bixby assistant, in particular Bixby Shopping, which lets customers point their Galaxy S9 camera at something to get taken directly to a partner website for purchase.
"Already, people have used Bixby Shopping to replenish their favourite cooking spices and beauty products, and to purchase everything from diapers to sneakers to 14” memory foam mattresses to 55” Samsung TVs," claims Samsung.
