US Bank launches iPhone NFC payments service
Customers in Salt Lake City and Portland are being invited to beta test the bank's new Go Mobile payments service, using an iPhone NFC case that stores a FlexPerks Visa credit card, ahead of a broader launch this year.
New US Bank FlexPerks Visa customers in the two cities are being invited to be the first to use Go Mobile. The service will then be offered "more broadly in 2013".
Customers who qualify for a FlexPerks Visa card and opt-in for the service will receive a customized US Bank Go Mobile iPhone case, made by DeviceFidelity, that also extends the battery life of their iPhone 4 or 4S by more than 50%, along with their new card. Both the card and the iPhone case are personalized by Datacard.
