Visa CEO Loses Wallet

Wonder what other plastic he’s got in there? Think Centurion/Black AmEx Card and a MasterCard World Elite! Keep in mind, if he did have the Centurion Card, he could have had all of his cards replaced through the card replacement program, although, I’m sure he’s got enough personal assistants to take care of that.

“I’m supposed to start off, and say that I’m very happy to be here, and I guess I am. But it’s 4:15 in the morning as far as I’m concerned, and I lost my wallet on the way here,” Saunders said. “It’s rather embarrassing when somebody steals my credit cards.” The comment prompted laughter.
Saunders began his presentation at 7:15 a.m EST.

Visa Signature Card

The Visa Signature card is Visa’s highest offering. It’s a lot more complicated to figure out which program as the best, when compared to American Express for both Visa and MasterCard, because each handles it’s details through the bank which issues the card. At a high level the card includes standard travel benefits (packages, discounts, upgrades), concierge (travel, dining reservations, vacation planning, help with general research and recommendations), access to special tickets and events (entertainment, sporting, fine dining/culinary), special shopping discounts and privileges, as well as dining reservations and restaurant reviews from Zagat.
