Should You Use Apple Pay at Meijer?

Yes, we love using Apple Pay and other electronic wallets.

Apple Pay offers a great deal of convenience that other payment methods do not.

It allows you to save multiple cards in one convenient place so you can use whichever card you wish at the drop of a hat.

Apple Pay is also extremely secure as it offers multi-factor authentication that other payment methods like chip and pin cards, cash, or contactless cards can’t offer.

The only downside is that your phone clearly needs to have some battery left and our experience of Apple phones is that the battery life isn’t the best.

Clearly, you also need to have it set up on your phone and this may take some time if you have any hoops to jump through with your card issuer.


Final Thoughts

We enjoy using Apple Pay very much for its speed, security, and convenience.

We recommend using it wherever possible including at Meijer.

Hopefully, Meijer will roll it out for use on its website too in due course but for now, you’ll need to make do with using it in-store and at its gas stations.

Meijer provides numerous payment methods to use within its stores in commonplace with its major competitors like Walmart.
