INTRO: Apart from cool and popular computer peripherals, Razer is understood for creating some pretty unusual products also . And, if you thought the launch of its line of gaming chewing gums is crazy, then the corporate seems to possess one-upped itself. It recently launched the “Razer Card” that comes with a light-up Razer logo built-in.
Yes!!! You heard that right, Razer Inc.’s financial wing, Razer Fintech, announced the launch of its new digital payment solution earlier this week. The company partnered with Visa to develop its digital prepaid service and the light-up credit card.
“Right from the beginning, we’ve been very excited about our collaboration with Visa to rework the digital payments experience globally,” stated Lee Li Meng, the CEO of Razer Fintech. “A lot of your time and energy has gone into developing and perfecting this product, that’s truly getting to value-add significantly to the life-style of our users (of course, every gamer wants one of these),” he added.
How to Get the Razer Card?
Initially, users can check in for a virtual “Razer Card” at no extra cost to use it via “Razer Pay.” Later, they will upgrade to a typical or Premium physical card. Although there is no built-in light-up Razer logo on the Standard version, the Premium edition comes with this unique feature. This green LED logo will illuminate whenever you employ the cardboard for a transaction.
Now, you might be thinking that can company can compete with the digital payment solutions of other major players in the market? Well, the company says that its reward system is unique, unlike other loyalty programs. All the cardboard users are going to be ready to enjoy cashback features all year long alongside an in-app “gamified rewards system”.
Cardholders also can make payments at any of the 61 million Visa merchant locations around the world. The card supports contactless payment technology also, allowing users to tap to buy their day-to-day activities.
I know, you’re itching to urge one but there’s a serious catch. The company is bringing the prepaid digital payment service only to Singapore, as of now. There is no further news about plans for expansion to other countries. Moreover, currently, the Mastercard will only be made available to the primary 1337 people that check-in .
