Its main use is in Asia but should work on the Discover Card network. I read about it on another board. I applied for the no annual fee card and got instant approval. The card should arrive in two to three weeks.

Any salient features here in the US?

needhelpplease said:   Any salient features here in the US?

Probably none. I doubt you'll ever find a place in the U.S. that accepts UnionPay but not other credit cards.

If you don't travel much, it will probably be just a card you have that none of your friends have.

What's the benefit of the Union pay card over the Visa card also listed on the linked page?

Is this a Chip & PIN [default] card?

Probably no benefit over the Visa. It's just that I already have a ton of Visas and none of these.

The only way to know if it's chip and pin by default is use it in a chip terminal when it comes. I don't know yet.

I used to collect baseball cards.

If you frequently travel to China this is a great card to have.. But agree, no real benefit if you live in the US and don't use your passport often.
