You can get a Chase contactless card by applying for any Chase credit or debit card. All newly-issued “Chase” credit cards and Chase debit cards have allowed contactless payments since January 2019. All of their co-branded credit cards do, too.
If you have a Chase credit card that recently expired, it’s likely you already have contactless payments enabled on your replacement card. Eligible Chase credit cards that expired in 2019 were automatically replaced with contactless cards. And Chase began doing the same with debit cards in the second half of 2019.
How to convert your Chase card to a contactless version:
If you still have an old version of a Chase card, you can convert it to a contactless version by submitting a request while logged in on the Chase card replacement page.
Here’s how contactless payments work:
Contactless payments, also called tap-to-pay, let a cardholder simply tap a payment terminal to complete a transaction rather than inserting or swiping the card. To see if your Chase card has contactless payments enabled, just look on the card itself. Contactless Chase cards have the “Contactless Indicator” symbol on the front or back – it looks like a sideways Wi-Fi symbol.
Chase was one of the first major card issuers to make a major effort toward contactless payment capability (and building consumer awareness about it) in the U.S. In fact, Chase was developing their contactless cards – formerly called “blink” cards – as early as 2006. Chase and Visa have also teamed up for a marketing campaign using NFL players and celebrities – such as Saquon Barkley of the New York Giants and model Chanel Iman – to get people used to the idea of tapping to pay.
