LOS ANGELES - First Interstate Bancorp has announced that it will expand its Northwest-area Visa Check card program to an additional million checking customers in nine western states.

First Interstate's Gold Check Card is an enhanced banking/automated teller machine card that can be used at any merchant that accepts Visa, at any First Interstate ATM, and many other ATMs around the world.

Early this year, First Interstate will begin an 18-month phased issuance program to customers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, New Mexico, Nevada, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming.

With its expansion, First Interstate will become one of the largest issuers of Visa Check cards in the United States.
