How do I setup Google Pay?
Google Pay may be preloaded on select devices. If your device does not have the Google Pay app, simply download it from your device’s app store. Google Pay requires that you sign-into your Google account before you register any credit/debit cards. All PenFed debit and credit cards are eligible to be used with Google Pay. To add your PenFed card to Google Pay:
- Open the Google Pay app.
- At the top right, tap your Profile picture > Wallet
- Add your PenFed Visa card with the snap of a photo. If your card is already linked to your Google account, just confirm a few details to add it.
- At the bottom, tap Add to Wallet.
- Tap Payment card.
- To capture your card info, use the camera. You can also enter your card info manually.
Is Google Pay free?
Yes, there is no charge to use Google Pay however, an active mobile data plan is required and depending on your data plan, message and data rates may apply.
Are my payments and personal information safe with Google Pay?
Yes, when using Google Pay, your PenFed card number isn’t stored on your phone or given to the merchant. The merchant never receives or transmits your actual card number. Google Pay replaces your real card number with a unique digital card number or digital account number (token) as a substitute that is used to make purchases in-store and online.
Will I still earn rewards and benefits from my card when I pay using Google Pay?
Yes, you’ll still get all the benefits and protections that your credit or debit card provides. If you currently earn rewards on purchases, you’ll continue to earn them for purchases made with Google Pay.
What if my phone or device is lost or stolen?
If your phone is lost or stolen, you can lock your phone and suspend Google Pay by using the Find My Device.
Additionally, you can lock your card anytime within PenFed Online. Log in to your PenFed online account, click your PenFed credit card account, and under the card image click the button to lock your card and prevent payments from being made. You can lock and unlock your card anytime.
