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.For more information and to download the Visa Mobile App from BlackBerry App World
