WILMINGTON, Del. & CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 30, 2005--Chase Bank U.S.A., N.A., a division of JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM), and United announced today that the United Mileage Plus Visa* card is the first airline rewards card to feature "contactless" technology called "blink." The United Mileage Plus Visa cards with blink were first issued this summer to over 200,000 cardmembers in Colorado, a United hub destination.

To use United Mileage Plus Visa cards with blink, Colorado 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. As cardmembers hold their card with blink near the point-of-sale terminal, the terminal will quickly emit a tone and light up to signal payment confirmation.
