U.S. Bank is rolling out an invitation-only NFC payment service called ‘Go Mobile.’ The service allows customers to quickly and securely pay for everyday purchases with a wave of their iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S.
Newly approved U.S. Bank FlexPerks customers who qualify and opt-in for the service will receive a customized U.S. Bank Go Mobile NFC-enabled iPhone case along with their new card. Incidentally, the case also has an extra battery extending the phone’s charge time by more than 50 percent.
Go Mobile will be available to customers in Salt Lake City, Utah, and Portland, Ore., to begin with. U.S. Bank is introducing the service in Beta with new FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa Signature account holders, and plans on introducing it more broadly in 2013.
U.S. Bank is partnering with Visa, DeviceFidelity and Datacard Group for this initiative.
