Customers at Bank of America, the second largest financial institution in the U.S., have definitely accepted Apple Pay with open arms.
The company announced today that nearly 800,000 customers have enrolled in the mobile payment system since it was introduced in October. Those customers have added 1.1 million cards into the system.
Bank of America has been heavily promoting Apple Pay, airing a number of TV commercials to highlight the service.
And there are even more places for buyers to use the system. Lucky, Save Mart, and FoodMaxx locations are now accepting Apple Pay at its 217 stores located throughout Northern California and Nevada.
Customers can complete in-store Apple Pay purchases with the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and upcoming Apple Watch. Those devices, along with the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, can make online purchases.
