Have you ever been excited about paying for things? Well, you might have a reason now because Apple Pay is finally coming to Target stores, along with a few other national chains, according to Apple.

Other retailers getting the Apple Pay blessing include Taco Bell, Jack in the Box, Speedway convenience stores, and Hy-Vee supermarkets based in the midwest.

According to the company, Apple Pay is being rolled out to Target stores now. The company said that all of its U.S. based stores – 1,850 in total – will have Apple Pay available “in the coming weeks.”

Sadly, Taco Bell and Jack in the Box won’t be implementing the payment service as fast as Target. Apple notes in its press release that these fast food restaurants will have it available in their stores “in the next few months.”

“With the addition of these national retailers, 74 of the top 100 merchants in the US and 65 percent of all retail locations across the country will support Apple Pay,” said Apple in a press release.

Sure, this isn’t anything groundbreaking, but for someone who religiously uses Apple’s payment method when it’s available, this is some exciting news. I mean, paying for stuff sucks, but when it’s made extremely convenient, I guess it sucks a little less.
