United Mileage Plus Visa Card First Airline Credit Card to Use Contactless Blink Technology
United Airlines is promoting its innovation in being the first airline to use Chase’s new contactless “blink” technology in its airline rewards credit card. The Chase United Mileage Plus Visa Card with “blink” were first issued this summer to over 200,000 cardmembers in Colorado.
To use the card, cardmembers simply hold their card near a special point-of-sale terminal at checkout, instead of swiping their card or handing it to a store employee.
Using the requisite puns to full advantage, Joe Venuti, senior vice president for Chase’s Card Services division, said “We’re confident the idea will take flight with our cardmembers, who will enjoy gliding through check out lines while accruing mileage earning benefits.”
