From June 23 to 25, stores and shops in Hayes Valley and the Marina are taking part in a promotion sponsored by Apple that will offer customers significant discounts and free products if they "lose their wallet."
To promote Apple Pay, 20 merchants in Hayes Valley and 16 Marina shops will offer customers free products and deep cuts on a wide range of products and services ranging from ice cream to parking. Deals will be on offer from June 23–25.
Customers must visit individual locations and check out with Apple Pay to take part; Android users aren't eligible.
"Guests have been asking about Apple Pay, and this was a great opportunity to update [the] payment system," said a representative from Smitten Ice Cream, which is offering a 25% discount to customers who use the app.
Participants include Blue Bottle (315 Linden Street), which will give customers a 15% discount, while Ritual Coffee (432b Octavia Street) grants 20%.
Azil Boutique (451 Hayes Street) will take $10 off $50 or more, Sugar (377 Hayes Street) offers $5 martinis and beers, Double Decker (465 Grove Street) makes large fries available for $1, and Souvla (517 Hayes Street) has a new frozen yogurt flavor (crumbled melomakarona) to try for $1.
Apple Pay users get 10% off all services at benefit (2219 Chestnut Street), while DavidsTea (2272-2276 Chestnut Street) takes 10% off each purchase and adds a free tea of the day. Marina Deli (2299 Chestnut Street), gives patrons a free cookie with a sandwich, while Peet's Coffee (2080 Chestnut Street) takes $1 off all beverages.
San-Francisco based Square helps some merchants with credit card processing and plans to stage a pop-up on Hayes Street and in the Marina to help shoppers install Apple Pay and learn more about participating businesses.
The pop-up will be open from 11am to 6pm from June 23 to June 25 in the Marina, and from June 24 to June 25 in Hayes Valley.
