With the football season starting up, those whose significant others don’t appreciate the game as much as they do might want to do something nice for their “football widow” partners. Visa Checkout and the NFL is making that easy by declaring Saturday, September 6 “Footballentine’s Day.”

Football fans and those who love them can send free flowers from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM when they sign up for Visa Checkout and place their order by Friday, September 5 at 4pm EST. They will be able to order 18 roses and only pay shipping and taxes, while supplies last.

Visa Checkout offers quick online payments

A competitor to PayPal, Visa Checkout lets shoppers pay for online purchases at Neiman Marcus, Staples, Petco, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, GAP, Athleta, Pizza Hut, and many more merchants. People can sign up for Visa Checkout at and store their payment information for quick checkouts online. Or they can sign up at merchant or bank websites as well as at Visa’s website.

With Visa Checkout, people enter their login and their preferred payment information is automatically filled in. Account numbers, PINs and expiration dates are stored and encrypted for fast, secure and convenient online transactions.

Get ready for some football – and some Visa Checkout ads

Visa Checkout debuted in July 2014 and is teaming up with the NFL for its first marketing campaign. It will include a social media blitz, national TV commercials, digital ads and promotions such as this one.

On Sunday September 14, a commercial featuring Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, New Orleans Saints player Drew Brees, Colin Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers and the Indianapolis Colts’ Andrew Luck will premiere during the first NFL regular season game on the FOX network. The ad, called, “One-Handed Catch,” aims to demonstrate how easy it is to use Visa Checkout by showing football players shopping online while they catch a pigskin.

Visa has been a sponsor of the NFL since 1995. They have been the exclusive payment services provider of the NFL. They also sponsor twelve NFL teams: the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts, Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, Pittsburgh Steelers and San Francisco 49ers.
