For the launch of Android Pay, the Commonwealth Bank has launched a neat rebate offer. Commbank says ‘use your phone to tap and pay with Android Pay or the CommBank app. For a limited time, get $20 back after the first 3 times you tap and pay with your CommBank Mastercard on Android Pay or the CommBank app’. This is in addition to the current Google promotion for new Android Pay users, with the chance to win gift vouchers for adding new cards and using them to tap and pay.
Android Pay is now available at over 50 financial institutions in Australia including with the addition of the Commonwealth Bank, three of the ‘Big Four’ banks in Australia. National Australia Bank, the fourth of these banks is also rumoured to be launching Android Pay support at some stage in the near future as part of their expansion of their digital wallet strategy, though nothing official has been announced.
