Visa Adds iPhone Mobile App
SAN FRANCISCO – Visa said it is making Christmas shopping easier and more convenient for budget-conscious consumers by offering the Visa Mobile application for the iPhone.
Through a simple tap of the finger Visa account holders now have access to more than 50 unique merchant offers ranging from clothing and dining to entertainment. The Visa Mobile application is now available as a free download from the iTunes app store.
Visa is working with a select list of popular merchants to deliver exclusive offers to Visa account holders, helping them save money on every-day purchases. More than 50 merchants including some of the most popular retailers in the U.S. such as 24 Hour Fitness, Jos. A. Bank, Meineke, New York & Company, and Zales are providing discounts through the Visa Mobile application, helping them reach more consumers with targeted offers.
Offers are automatically delivered and stored in the application, can be tailored to consumers’ life styles and preferences, and can be redeemed either online or at physical retail locations. The application uses location-based technology to provide consumers with a map and directions to a nearby retailer where they can redeem merchant offers.
