Visa is the official payment technology partner for Hudson Yards, which translates into cardholders getting some new perks when visiting the latest neighborhood on Manhattans Westside, including VIP access to the gallery and the Vessel. Along with the perks, cardholders can make contactless payments throughout the state of the art mall that is part of the Hudson Yards complex.
Once they have fully rolled out the perks cardholders will be able to get preferred all-day access to the Vessel, which is a spiral staircase made up of 154 complexly interconnected flights of stairs. Once perched upon the Vessel people will be able to take in a stellar view which is made up of the Garden and Public Square.
That is not all while shopping they can stop for a bite at Fuku restaurant, where having a Visa credit card lets them unlock a special, and yes secret item on the menu. And those who would like to take a tour of the Hudson Yard Gallery can actually head on over to the concierge desk in the retail center to get their private tour.
“Hudson Yards is an exciting new opportunity to show domestic and international audiences the best of Visa, from payments to purpose,” said Mary Ann Reilly, Senior Vice President North America Marketing, Visa. “We are building a portfolio of benefits that enables cardholders to have unique experiences that only Visa can provide.”
Supporting female entrepreneurs
Visa has been a supporter of female entrepreneurs for quite some time and this initiative is included in their activities they are rolling out at Hudson Yard. They are creating an on-site installation, which will offer cardholders and others a way to donate money to charities that have a female-focus. The Women’s World Banking, a non-profit providing low-income women entrepreneurs throughout the world with both the resources and financial tools they need to start and grow their businesses, will be included in this list of charities.
“As a female entrepreneur, it’s incredible to work with a brand like Visa who shares our vision of empowering women,” said Amy Ling Lin, Founder of sundays nail salon, a Hudson Yards merchant. “Working with Visa has helped grow our sundays following and given us opportunities to reach new customers. We are excited to continue working together to celebrate women.”
