Or as others have pointed out, put your card in your phone wallet and leave the card home. At least with an iPhone you tap your phone and approve the transaction using your fingerprint on your phone. Can’t get much safer - especially with something for which you have no liability, all you are trying to do is avoid the hassle of a stolen card.

More merchants need to get onboard, as many notably large businesses still are not setup to accept Apple Pay.

Per the Apple Pay website (Link) it is accepted anywhere that takes contactless credit cards.

“Apple Pay is accepted at over 85 percent of retailers in the U.S., so you can likely use it wherever and however you want. If you’re not sure, just ask. Apple Pay works anywhere that takes contactless payments — from vending machines and grocery stores to taxis and subway stations.”

On edit: I only recently learned that the Apple Pay network is not required. When I added my BofA card to my wallet, BofA texted me a code then sent an email saying my CC was added to my iPhone wallet and could be used at any contactless station. I guess they added their transaction routing info to my phone in order to skip the need for the Apple Pay network.

Well I’m not going to argue you about it because my nearest Walmart, Home Depot or Lowes is 2 hours away. All I know is our local supermarket, ice cream shop, thrift shop, a wildlife refuge and gas station don’t display an Apple Pay icon but do accept contactless credit card transactions, and they accept my Visa on my iPhone. So there you go.
