SAML has several profiles for different transfer protocol and I would say that the WebSSO profile which works very well with HTTP redirects or HTTP POSTs is one of the most frequently used ones. This WebSSO profile works perfectly with REST apps.
Furthermore, comparing OAuth with SAML is like comparing apples with pears - OAuth is for service authorization, while SAML is for relaying authentication information.
