US Bank MasterCard Now Works with Android Pay and Samsung Pay

US Bank MasterCard users can finally add their cards to their mobile wallets. The bank confirmed that Android Pay and Samsung Pay now support US Bank MasterCards.

US Bank Visa cards have worked with Android Pay since the mobile wallet first launched almost a year ago. However, cards issued by the bank and backed by MasterCard were not eligible for loading onto the mobile wallet. The new partnership covers co-branded cards from other companies as well, as long as they are backed by US Bank and MasterCard.

This isn’t the only major expansion for US Bank in the last week. The financial institution has been chosen to be the new prepaid card provider for the Texas Workforce Commission. Texas citizens who receive unemployment benefits through a prepaid card will be using US Bank cards beginning June 20th. Chase Bank is the current prepaid card provider for Texas unemployment. Users who still have balances on their Chase cards when their US Bank cards arrive in the mail can continue to use the Chase cards until the balance is depleted.
