MINNEAPOLIS, Jul 30, 2003 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- U.S. Bank recently added several
enhancements to usbank.com that make navigating in Spanish easier, Internet
banking seamless, applying for credit cards simple and Verified by Visa
Hispanic consumers and businesses can now access the Spanish language site
directly at usbank.com/enspanol, or from a direct link on the usbank.com home
page. The site includes information on U.S. Bank products and services including
new information for small businesses. The enhancement is yet another example of
the great strides U.S. Bank is making to lead the nation in providing financial
services to the Hispanic market.
U.S. Bank Internet Bill Pay also received a new look within U.S. Bank Internet
Banking, making it even easier and more convenient to use. It was enhanced to
provide a more seamless, consistent and improved customer experience, and it
includes the same functionality and features as before.
In addition, instant decisions on applications - a feature that is widely-used
and of great value to many customers - is now available for the U.S. Bank Cash
Rewards Cards as well as the U.S. Bank Student Checking Account.
In a move to increase online purchase security, U.S. Bank customers can now
enroll in Verified by Visa directly through usbank.com. Verified by Visa is an
Internet shopping protection program that asks the buyer for his or her password
before processing the card number for an online purchase. Password protection
through Verified by Visa, a service that is free to the cardholder, helps fend
off any unauthorized uses of the card number on the Internet should it be lost
or stolen. Users may also sign up when they purchase an item from a Verified by
Visa Internet merchant and use a U.S. Bank credit card. A pop-up screen
automatically prompts the cardholder through the enrollment process.
