Increase in Limit for Contactless Transactions on Collabria Visa Cards

Effective Date: March 20, 2020 (4:45 p.m. EST)

Collabria Visa Cards are adopting a number of measures to help limit the impact of the Coronavirus on our cardholders and partners. We are witnessing an increase in the usage of contactless Visa payments and in line with this, a desire for higher transaction limits for contactless payments. To support our Visa cardholders in making high value contactless payments at Grocery & Convenience Stores and Pharmacies, we are temporarily increasing the limit for contactless transactions from $100 to $250 (wherever these merchants have enabled acceptance of higher contactless transactions)

This increase will allow Visa cardholders to complete more contactless transactions, thereby reducing the need to touch the PIN pad or merchant terminal when making a purchase, creating a safer and more efficient transaction.
