I always found my Tesco Debit card to be crap too. Everyime I used it in store they had to bypass the clubcard points. I often had contactless fail due to it.
So glad I ditched tesco and now use Barclays Apple/Android pay everyday!
Apple Pay will be coming to our current accounts, when we have a date we'll be announcing it through our social media channels.
I know a lot of you would like to add your Visa Debit cards to Apple Pay but in the meantime have you had a look at PayQwiq?
It acts as a digital wallet too and can be used for transactions above £30 in store-plus it removes the need to scan your Clubcard before completing payment as they are both linked.
Have used it several times since the service launched nationally a couple of weeks ago and earned myself a bonus in the way of 500 Clubcard points.
Appreciate it's not the answer you're looking for however if you shop regularly at Tesco it's worth checking out.
I tried to use PayQwiq in my local Tesco Extra. It wouldn't scan the code whatsoever, no matter how much I tried. A member of staff couldn't help either.
Thought it was quite cumbersome to use in comparison to Apple Pay. When I tried PayQwiq I had to unlock my mobile (iPhone6sPlus) then unlock the PayQwik app both with my fingerprint before I could even try to use it.
With ApplePay I just hold my handset up to the card reader and authenticate with finger print - job done! It's also down to the retailer to have the £30 spend limit.
