American Express Hilariously Taps into Nostalgia to Promote Apple Pay

1 minute read

Since everyone loves the ‘90s, perhaps it makes sense for American Express to use old Jerry Seinfeld clips in a new commercial. The credit card company is promoting Apple Pay in a new ad that is a compilation of several old AmEx spots. Celebrities like Seinfeld and Tina Fey are shown briefly hoisting the famous green plastic in old commercials. Then, the montage culminates with a new AmEx user brandishing his iPhone instead to use Apple Pay at a cash register. Technology has changed, but this is the same old AmEx you know and love (if you’re in the habit of showing affection toward credit card companies).

Apple has a helpful list of all the major credit and debit cards that are compatible with its mobile payments service.
