Microsoft Corp.'s MSN Internet service and credit card issuer First USA have joined forces to offer the MSN Titanium Visa card, which bears the butterfly logo of the MSN service.
The card features a translucent design and offers a 0 percent introductory rate for six months, a complimentary version of Microsoft Money 2002 Standard personal finance software and six months free MSN Internet access for those who sign up before Dec. 1. The card also offers protection from unauthorized purchases, 24-hour online customer service and no annual fee.
“We are providing consumers with an innovative credit card that utilizes the Internet presence of MSN,” said Dan Frate, president of First USA.
Card members also have access to the financial tools on Microsoft's MSN Money portal and can update their account statements for their MSN Titanium Visa card at www.visa.msn.com.
The card is an extension of Microsoft's marketing relationship with First USA. Microsoft began working with the credit card issuer in 1999.
