Footballentine’s Day: The Easier Way to Say Thank you!
Recognizing how dedicated NFL fans are to their teams throughout the
season, Visa Checkout is making it easier to say thank you to friends,
family and loved ones for supporting their “fandom” during football
season by celebrating a new holiday - Footballentine’s Day - on Sept. 6.
Just in time for the holiday, Visa is giving fans the opportunity to
send 18 roses from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM to loved ones, for free by visiting visacheckout.com/flowers.
Customers just pay shipping and applicable taxes.
“It’s a funny, charming way for anyone to genuinely say thank you to
others for their dedication, passion and enthusiasm for both the game
and their team,” said Lucio. “Visa Checkout makes it easier for fans to
score big points and show their appreciation of football in advance of
the start of the season for free.”
Fans that enroll in and use Visa Checkout can place an order for 18 free
roses from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM and only pay shipping and applicable taxes.

The Easier Way to Pay
Visa is celebrating its NFL sponsorship with a new television
commercial, “One-Handed Catch,” which illustrates the ease and
simplicity of using Visa Checkout, while extending the reach of Visa’s
new brand positioning, “Everywhere You Want to Be.”
“One-Handed Catch” features eight-time Pro Bowler Arizona Cardinals wide
receiver Larry Fitzgerald using Visa Checkout to pay on his mobile
phone, while simultaneously fielding passes from three of the NFL’s most
celebrated quarterbacks: New Orleans Saints’ Drew Brees, San Francisco
49ers’ Colin Kaepernick and Indianapolis Colts’ Andrew Luck.
This new spot will air on Sunday, Sept. 14 as part of FOX broadcast of
the first Sunday of the NFL regular season.
Visa Checkout is designed to help make shopping online as simple as it
to “swipe” with a Visa card in stores. Visa Checkout also preserves
whatever liability protections and rewards programs your payment card
offers, as well as the real-time fraud monitoring. The prestigious list
of online merchants that accept Visa Checkout continues to grow, and
as of today includes Neiman Marcus, Staples, Petco and
1-800-FLOWERS.COM. Consumers can sign up for Visa Checkout through any
participating merchant or bank websites, or at www.visacheckout.com.

Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
