Jack in the Box Restaurants to Accept Contactless Credit Cards
Jack in the Box restaurants is ready to make fast food even faster, with today’s announcement that the quick-serve restaurant chain is installing contactless credit card readers at all of its company restaurants. Because Jack in the Box owns its own restaurants and also franchises, the contactless readers may or may not be coming to the restaurant near you.
“Contactless” credit cards allow cardholders to pay by holding their cards in front of a special reader instead of having to swipe the cards. In order to take advantage of this faster technology, cardholderes must have credit cards equipped with a special radio frequenct identification (RFID) chip. American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa all offer some form of this technology, but not every cardholder has it today.
RFID credit cards have been the source of some controversy, as security experts question whether enough is being done to ensure that consumers’ information is being protected.
