Lately, there’s been a lot of buzz about Virtual Visa Reward Cards. We may assume we know what they are, but do we really understand their full potential? Today, we hear the term “virtual” associated with so many different types of products that we sometimes forget to think about what “virtual” actually means in context. In the case of Virtual Visa Reward Cards, it’s important to note that virtual doesn’t mean “simulated,” it means digital and instant. A Virtual Visa Reward Card works just like a traditional Visa Card, only better, faster, and easier.
OK…so What Is a Virtual Visa Card Exactly?

With Virtual Visa Reward Cards, rewards recipients no longer have to wait for a physical product to arrive in the mail, they can enjoy their reward as soon as they get it.
