I’m quite excited about Visa Checkout. It is the latest competition for Amex Sync. I used Visa Checkout on the Orbitz website (for the $100 hotel discount deals) and found the process to be quick, easy and user-friendly.
The latest Visa Checkout deal I’ve come across is this: enroll your Bank of America Visa Debit or Credit Card in Visa Checkout before January 8th, 2015, and you’ll receive a $10 Pre-paid Reward Visa Card. I just enrolled my Alaska Airlines card!
Here’s the link to ENROLL.
Some additional terms and conditions:
To qualify for this offer, you must (1) create a new Visa Checkout account for the first time by [1/8/2015] via the “Enroll now” link above, via http://promo.bankofamerica.com/visa-checkout/ or the Visa Checkout link in Bank of America’s Online Banking, AND (2) add at least one consumer Bank of America issued Visa credit or debit card to the new Visa Checkout account during the initial account set-up (other cards do not qualify for this offer). Allow 60 days from Visa Checkout account opening for delivery of the Reward card to the billing address of the Bank of America issued Visa credit or debit card first added to the Visa Checkout account. Limit one (1) Reward card per customer. Bank of America may terminate this offer at anytime without notice. The value of this reward may constitute taxable income to you. You may be issued an Internal Revenue Service Form 1099 (or other appropriate form) that reflects the value of such reward. Please consult your tax advisor, as neither Bank of America, its affiliates, nor their employees provide tax advice. We are not responsible for lost, stolen or undelivered Reward cards.
I wonder if Bank of America will actually issue 1099’s for a $10 bonus, or whether the language is there “just in case.”
