Payment Sunglasses?

Visa Announcements: Payment Sunglasses & World Surf League

Surf Speakeasy Event at the Visa Everywhere Lounge

When our station, 216 The Beat Radio, received word during SXSW that VISA would be showcasing “payment sunglasses” we were confused yet intrigued.

I am an accessories junky and always looking for an excuse to purchase new sunnies. My collection holds a near and dear spot in my heart and takes of 3 drawers of my dresser (Lol!). You could say that I’m one of those people who doesn’t misplace or breaks my sunglasses and would find this to be ideal for someone like me. I could see myself rocking these at the beach, music festival or at a baseball game (Go Tribe!). These would be especially convenient for those in the media field (photographers, videographers, etc.) who are bogged down with equipment and a wallet is one less thing they’ll have to carry. I can’t wait to test these out (hint…hint…) and see just how much time and effort wearing these actually saves. For more information on the launch…

AUSTIN, TX, MARCH 13, 2017 – Today, Visa (NYSE:V) and StubHub announced they are enhancing their partnership to offer a variety of experiences that put fans at the center of the action. Starting today in Austin – and everywhere – the two brands are unveiling a series of events, promotions and offers designed to help fans everywhere snag the hottest tickets in town.

 

In 2017, Visa and StubHub plan to introduce fans to benefits such as seat upgrades when consumers use Visa Checkout to pay for tickets on StubHub. In April 2017, fans will once again receive a significant discount off their StubHub purchase when they pay using Visa Checkout, repeating a popular offer the two brands first ran during the holiday season last year.
