Shopping is time-consuming to browse through coupons, find the right deal, remember to carry it with you, or track down the promo code you saw online (where was it again?). Google partnered with Safeway to make it easy to find weekly grocery deals using the Google Pay app, which allows you to search for deals on thousands of products at over 500 Safeway locations nationwide, as well as find similar deals at Target stores nationwide.
Note: All these features are limited in some countries.
To find the latest grocery deals, search for Safeway or Target in the Google Pay app and tap “View Weekly Deals.” If you’ve turned on location in Google Pay, soon the app will notify you of the weekly deals at Safeway and Target stores when you’re nearby.
Google Pay now supports mobile transit tickets in Chicago and the San Francisco Bay Area. Android users are now able to access transit tickets from the app’s home screen through the Google Pay app. To access, tap the “Ride transit” shortcut where you can purchase or add a transit card or top up the balance and pay for your fare. Once you purchase a transit card, there’s no need to unlock your phone. Just hold it to the reader and go. In cities without readers, commuters can simply show their visual tickets on their mobile devices.
Also, you can view the full financial report of your money spent directly from the Google Pay app, just navigate the “Insights” tab for a view of your account balance and helpful insights on your spending like upcoming bill reminders, weekly spend summaries, or alerts when large transactions are made.
