Some U.S. Bank debit card customers now have access to the Visa Mobile application, enabling customers to manage their Visa accounts using mobile devices.
U.S. Bank, the lead bank of Minneapolis-based U.S. Bancorp, announced the service Wednesday with Visa Inc., the largest electronic payments network.
The bank said the service is now available to "select U.S. Bank debit card holders," but did not offer details on the specific customer base.
The application, which was launched about a year ago, can be downloaded to devices powered by Android, Google Inc.'s operating system for cell phones. Customers with the application can manage their accounts with near-real time updates, including account activity alerts and merchant offers.
