Do you live (or plan to visit) New York? Use Apple Pay? If so, you may be interested to know about Apple’s latest “Lose your wallet” promotion, designed to drum up interest in its mobile payments service.

The promotion promises customers a range of exclusive discounts in New York neighborhoods including Greenwich Village, Nolita, Park Slope, and Williamsburg. Here’s some of the offers you can take advantage of:

In Greenwich Village, customers can score 40 percent off at skincare and cosmetics company Arianna, a free macaron at Bosie Tea Parlor, 20 percent off at gourmet tea company DAVIDsTEA, 20 percent off eyewear at See, a free bag from Brompton, a free slice of pizza, and more. These offers run from June 15 to June 17.

Those same dates also cover deals at Nolita, including 15 percent off at the Bombay Shirt Company, 20 percent off at Bag-All, a free cookie at Milk, 20 percent off at Versani, and more.

After that, the offers switch over to Park Slope, where Apple Pay users can get 20 percent off at Gift Man, 20 percent off at Glitz Jeweler, 20 percent off at City Subs, a massive 50 percent off at La Belle Boutique and Cut Above on 7th, and more. These offers run from June 22 to June 24.

More offers where those came from

There are plenty of other deals available, so it’s worth heading over to Apple’s website to check them all out. It’s a great offer for Apple Pay customers, good publicity for Apple, and a way to spike sales for retailers. Similar events have previously been held in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

If you don’t live in New York, don’t worry, though. Apple regularly runs offers to promote Apple Pay around the world. Recently, U.S. customers were able to take advantage of free delivery on food ordered from food delivery service Postmates through its app.
