Went to purchase some gift cards this morning and that option is completely gone? I've purchased many in the past, but now the entire gift card section is gone? Please tell me your not taking that option away?

Good job wasting my time Samsung, I was going to buy a giftcard and use it but this is a surprise. Now, the only thing offered are store credits to Samsung's website. The rest of the offers are to services I don't and for the most part, can't even practically utilize. Thanks Samsung...
One of the features I liked about my S8 was using Samsung Pay and earning points. I've redeemed it a few times for Visa Gift Cards to use in stores. But now with all gift cards being removed, I have no reason to use Samsung Pay. It is actually faster just to use my Visa card (Chip or Swip) than to unlock my phone, open Samsung Pay, select the card, enter PIN and hope it works.
Now I have even less of a reason to get a newer model next year.
I am heart broken about thisd. I used to rely on that option mostly because the other items are not that useful.
Yeah, I will miss the gift cards too, but you just said the other options were not that useful to you. This tells me that you think the only use of Samsung Pay is to get free gift cards. But obviously that's not what Samsung had in mind when it designed the payment system. It has security advantages and it's much more convenient to pay with your phone. They threw in some gift card rewards to attract more users, but ultimately, it was just a promotion that cost them a lot of money.
