Cards better than cash for fast food - Visa
For consumers buying fast food and beverages at quick service restaurants (QSRs), speed is of the essence. According to a new survey commissioned by Visa, 82 percent of respondents agree that QSR purchases made with debit or credit cards are more convenient than dealing with cash. And 68 percent say using payment cards is faster than paying with cash.
Visa has partnered with Burger King to promote the use of plastic cards instead of cash in the fast food sector. Over the next three months Burger King customers paying for meals with Visa will qualify for a free meal on every tenth purchase.
Nice to see Visa doing its bit to fight the scourge of obesity and encourage healthy lifestyle options among its customers.
