Softcard is pleased to announce United Airlines and Chase are adding support for United MileagePlus® credit cards by Chase. Cardholders can now add United MileagePlus credit cards to Softcard, using the app to tap-to-pay and earn award miles at over hundreds of thousands of locations nationwide that accept contactless payments. This is a great solution for busy, on-the-go travelers interested in a convenient, easy and safer way to pay with their smartphones.
Users receive special perks, too: Now through February 28, 2015, earn 2,500 miles when you connect any United MileagePlus credit card by Chase to Softcard and make your first mobile payment. You can also receive 500 additional miles every subsequent month you tap-to-pay with Softcard, up to a total of 4,000 miles.
United MileagePlus cardholders will be reminded of this great opportunity in United Airlines terminals in major airports across the country, including Chicago O’Hare, Denver, Houston, Newark, and Washington-Dulles, as well as when they visit United.com.
Softcard uses state-of-the-art technology and layers of security including PIN protection to limit unauthorized access and remote lock if a user’s phone is lost or stolen. Additionally, payment information is stored in the phone’s Secure Element to enhance the security of user’s information.
United MileagePlus credit cards join dozens of other cards supported in Softcard from issuers such as Chase, Wells Fargo and American Express. The American Express Serve Account also allows Softcard users to add money from a preferred debit card, credit card or bank account.
Softcard is currently available on more than 80 devices across AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless, including more than 30 devices that preload the app.
