Certain U.S. Bank customers will soon have an opportunity to try the bank's new Go Mobile payment system, which allows iPhone owners to make contactless payments using a Near Field Communication-equipped case.

New FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa Signature cardholders in Salt Lake City and Portland, Ore., who sign up for the U.S. Bank service will be the first to test the contactless payment system prior to a broader rollout later this year, the bank announced Jan. 10.

Salt Lake City is already well equipped to handle mobile NFC payments. It is one of two test cities for the mobile carriers' Isis payment venture, and Google is planning its own mobile-wallet deployment there through a partnership with Utah's Associated Food Stores.
