    I tried Samsung Pay for the first time today. Lolfail.

    I was at Target and when it came time to pay I loaded it and held it next to the spot where you swipe the card. The terminal recognized it and lead me through the series of questions (enter pin, is the amount correct, do you want it all on this card) but at the very end it failed. The cashier thought it was because I had my phone next to the terminal but then moved it away and moved it back again and suggested I leave it next to the terminal the whole time. I tried that and got the same result.

    I'm thinking that the problem was that the terminal read my phone twice and that I should have put it in my pocket as soon as it registered the first time. My theory is that it read it twice like swiping your credit card twice and that freaked out the terminal.

    Anyone else have a similar experience?
