Chases New Technology Provides Instant MasterCard Credit Card at Universal Studios Hollywood

Friday 23 April 2004 10:05 CET | News

Chase and Universal Studios have launched a new Instant Credit Decision Program for the Universal Entertainment MasterCard from Chase.

The program allows for both instant credit decisions and immediate issuance of a ready-to-use, general purpose MasterCard credit card. Through this, approved consumers are granted instant access to their credit line and can use their new card everywhere MasterCard is accepted. Chase’s new patent-pending Instant Credit Decision Program is debuting at Universal Studios Hollywood today and will roll out at Universal Orlando Resort’s two theme parks, Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure, later this quarter. Typically, when a consumer applies for a new credit card, the process for actually receiving the card can take weeks. Now, with technology developed exclusively by Chase, consumers can apply for and receive a new credit card at the parks. Once approved, cardmembers receive a MasterCard that can be used immediately to make purchases, earn rewards and save money with discounts. This advanced system will completely replace the previous temporary internal theme park card. With the Universal Entertainment MasterCard from Chase, cardmembers earn one point per dollar on all everyday purchases and two points per dollar spent at select Universal Parks & Resorts retail locations, in addition to receiving discounts at many theme park merchandise stores. Points can be redeemed for movie and concert tickets, DVDs, CDs, theme park vacations and more. In addition, cardmembers can redeem reward points for unique Hollywood insider rewards such as walking the red carpet at a movie premiere and attending the exclusive after-party, or obtaining one-of-a-kind movie props in the Universal Entertainment online auctions.
