Chase to roll out contactless Visa debit cards

20 June 2006  |  8123 views  |  0 Blink card from Chase

Chase Bank is rolling out contactless Visa debit cards, branded 'blink', to customers in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Chase introduced credit cards featuring the contactless technology in New York last autumn. Now more than seven million Chase customers carry 'blink' credit cards.

The bank says it is the first Visa issuer to offer contactless payment capability on debit cards. The bank will issue 1.8 million cards to customers in the Tri-State area.

Customers can make purchases by holding the card close to a participating merchant's card reader at the checkout. Around 2000 merchant locations in the New York/Tri-state area and more than 30,000 in the US are equipped to accept the contactless payments.

Michael Cleary, chief operating officer of Chase's consumer bank, says: "Our credit card customers have really liked blink, so we're bringing the same convenience to our Tri-State debit card customers."
