The ultimate guide to how and where to use Apple Pay

Leah Yamshon, Caitlin McGarry | April 29, 2015
Here's everything you need to know about Apple Pay and its ins and outs, plus an up-to-date list of Apple Pay-ready stores and apps. The latest? Best Buy now supports Apple Pay for in-app purchases and this fall will begin accepting Apple Pay in its stores nationwide.

A few more stores will rollout Apple Pay compatibility sometime in 2015:

  • Albertsons
  • Anthropologie
  • Best Buy
  • Free People
  • Urban Outfitters
  • Walt Disney World Resort

Also, JetBlue accepts Apple Pay payments on select flights between New York's John F. Kennedy airport and the airports in San Francisco and Los Angeles, with a fleet-wide Apple Pay rollout expected for later in 2015. Passengers can use Apple Pay to purchase in-air snacks, drinks, entertainment, and seat upgrades. Flight attendants will use iPad minis equipped with NFC-enabled cases to complete transactions, and the system will accept traditional credit and debit card transactions as well. By June, 3500 JetBlue flight attendants will have the Apple Pay-ready iPad minis. 

While JetBlue is paving the way, we wouldn't be surprised to see Apple Pay accepted by other airlines as well. The next likely candidate is United Airlines, which already has released plans to equip 23,000 flight attendants with an iPhone 6 Plus for on board use later this year. However, they haven't announced any plans for Apple Pay integration yet.
