Advantage

This blog will explain the advantages of this campaign.

Advantage1: Valid for payment with LINE Pay card

This is the biggest point of this time.

The LINE Pay Card is a JCB-branded prepaid card. Because it is a prepaid card, it requires a pre-charge to use it.

As this card is a JCB brand, it can be used at stores where JCB credit cards can be used.

In other words, credit card shopping can receive a 20% reduction.

However, please note that you can not issue a LINE Pay real card immediately. However, LINE Pay virtual cards can be issued instantly with the LINE app.

With this LINE Pay Virtual, you can shop online. Also, this virtual card can be registered as a Quick Pay on Google Pay. If it is Quick Pay, you can use it in the city.

Advantage2: Code payment is up to + 3% in LINE My color addition

LINE has its own ranking system called “My color” system.

The “My Color” system is a program for all LINE Pay users who receive benefits in accordance with the usage of LINE Pay. The condition of my color is as follows.

My ColoerCondition

When using LINE Pay’s QR / bar code payment for one year from August 1, 2018 to July 31, 2019, “+ 3%” is added to the usual My color points.
Up to 5% reduction, and at least 3.5% reduction even for those who are not green.
Drug store, convenience store points can also be earned.

Stores with point service can receive points from the store in addition to the LINE Pay campaign. There are 1% reductions at many stores, so use them together.

Disadvantage

Describe the advantages of this campaign.

Disadvantage1: Unavailable on Apple Pay

LINE Pay supports Quick Pay, but can not register to Apple Pay. In Japan, many people use the iPhone, so be careful when using the LINE Pay virtual card.

Disadvantage2: It is hard to understand non-target products

According to the official page, there is the following statement. Please note that some product parts are not clear.

Some products such as alcohol, cigarettes, books and taxes are not eligible for the campaign at some stores.

Summary

This time, we introduced the second half of March campaign of Line Pay. Up to 25% reduction can be obtained by bar code settlement at the store. It is a very useful campaign that you can get a 20% reduction even if you use it like a credit card.

There is no factor to lose up to 25,000 yen, so be sure to use it.
