How do I easily transfer contacts from my old sim to new nano sim?

I've recently bought a new iphone 6S. I'm currently using my very old sim which has all of my contacts stored on it in a Samsung smart phone. What is the easiest way to transfer all of my contacts to the new iphone, taking into account the fact that the old sim card doesn't fit?

Is your phone on a service? If you're on Verizon, for example, you can back up all your contacts to them, and then download to a new phone.

Sync your contacts with Google on the Samsung phone (if you have a Gmail account logged in, this part might already be done), and then with the iPhone.

You can literally cut the old SIM to size, if it comes to that. (And it's easy to get a holder if you ever want to put it back into the old phone.)

Apple stores have a transfer device that can usually complete that process for you for free. Might be worth asking about.
