Visa has released a new mobile application for BlackBerry to help you take advantage of special offers on shopping and services. The app is free and available in BlackBerry App World. Once you download it, you create your account from within the app. Choose which offer categories you want to see and you're all set; as they become available, the service sends merchant discounts and special offers to you via the app. These can be redeemed at retail locations, online, or by telephone through merchant call centers. This eliminates the need for you to present a paper coupon at the point of sale. You do need to link your Visa card to the app in order to take advantage of the offers. You can also access maps and directions to nearby locations of select merchants providing offers and ATMs that accept Visa.

If you regularly use your Visa to make purchases online or in retail stores, this may be a convenient way for you to save some money.The Visa mobile app is currently only compatible with BlackBerry 85xx, 9000, and 89xx/9630/9700 with at least OS 5.0. (No indication if it works on BB6 yet.) Unfortunately this app is currently only available in the USA. Sorry folks.

Some day I'll quit BB because of this lack of handly apps

I just switched from Android... The selection of Apps for Blackberry is fine. If you can't find what you're looking for in the App World, just search Google. For instance, Amazon for Blackberry isn't in App World but it's on Amazons site. Simple enough.

Also, I'm running this app right now on my VZW Tour 9630...

Compatible with my phone, but I wonder if it also works with this Visa debit card I just picked up.

It sucks! Part of T&C of Visa:
The Application is only available to residents of the United States while in the United States.
That's all folks:(
Cheers from Poland, waiting for the app for the rest of the world!!

I know a lot of users are based in USA/Canada but can we start having posts for apps that are relevant to those OUTSIDE these countries?!

I'm getting fed up clicking on an app to be told USA only!

Wow, no 9100, no 9300, no 9550, no 9650, no 9670, no 9780, no 9800. Welcome to 2009, Visa.

Very impressive. VISA introduces an app which supports devices made through the first have of 2010, in 2011. Maybe they'll have rolled out OS 6 support by 2012!

Yet another parochial app from a global company. It seems that as time goes on, more and more apps are US only and @#>" the rest of the world.

Sprint 9650..can't get it either :(

If anyone has a way around App World, please pass it on

Interesting - why would you need to input your VISA info in your phone though? Makes me worried about how they'd use it.
