Introducing contactless debit cards
Contactless payment allows you to wave or tap your Alaska USA Visa® Debit Card to pay for items at participating retailers everywhere! It’s the fastest and most secure way to make your day-to-day purchases
Tap to pay at many of your favorite places like fast-food restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacies, vending machines, and more. Just look for the Contactless Symbol at checkout.
- Look for the contactless symbol on the store's checkout terminal.
- Tap your card or wave it within a few inches of the Contactless Symbol. (Tip: actual tapping is optional.)
- Once you hear the "beep", checkmark, or green light lets you know your payment has been processed
Safer than ever! Your personal information and credit card number are completely encrypted for maximum security. Every transaction creates a one-time use code that gets authenticated by the card reader network—plus the card never leaves your hand! And, if you ever misplace your card you can turn it off and back on easily with the Alaska USA app.
Tapping to pay uses short-range wireless technology to make secure payments between a contactless card or payment-enabled device and a contactless-enabled checkout terminal. When you tap your card or device near the Contactless Symbol, your payment is sent for authorization.
Look for the contactless payment symbol below the encrypted chip on your debit card.
