Apple Pay Adds More Financial Institutions; Home Depot To Go ‘Official’

Apple Pay on Apple Watch

Apple Pay has been extremely successful with owners of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and every month there are more financial institutions that throw their support behind the cardless payment system. Apple added the names of 24 more banks and credit unions to its list this week, bringing the total to more than 200. Is your bank listed below? If it is and you either have an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus or an iPhone 5/5s/5c and an Apple Watch, you can join the millions of people who are already making payments with a few taps. The new institutions are:

  • Bellwether Community Credit Union
  • Benchmark Federal Credit Union
  • Blackhawk Community Credit Union
  • Community America Credit Union
  • Community First Credit Union
  • Connections Credit Union
  • cPort Credit Union
  • Denver Fire Department FCU
  • Electro Savings Credit Union
  • Elements Financial FCU
  • First Financial Credit Union
  • Greater Nevada Credit Union
  • Harvard Universities Employees Credit Union
  • Interra Credit Union
  • Kern Schools Federal Credit Union
  • Nusenda Credit Union
  • People’s Trust Federal Credit Union
  • Premier America Credit Union
  • Premier Members Federal Credit Union
  • SAFE Credit Union
  • Scient Federal Credit Union
  • The Bancorp Bank
  • Tucson Federal Credit Union
  • Union Bank & Trust Co.

A complete list of participating banks can be found here. By the way, users of the Simple online banking system can now add their Simple debit cards to Apple Pay, as The Bancorp Bank is the company backing Simple.

In other Apple Pay news, Bloomberg Business is reporting that big-box DYI home improvement retailer Home Depot is planning to add official support for Apple Pay soon. Some of the chain’s 2,000+ stores had been able to accept Apple Pay in the past since they had compatible point-of-sale systems, but those locations are temporarily blocking Apple Pay transactions until the full rollout is complete.
