CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Citi Retail Services and ExxonMobil today announced new industry-leading functionality for the ExxonMobil Speedpass+™ mobile payment app that enables consumers to apply for the ExxonMobil Smart Card credit card directly through the app and begin saving on fuel purchases.
This “Apply and Buy” feature is available today to consumers nationwide through ExxonMobil’s Speedpass+ app, which can be downloaded through the Apple app store or Google Play and used at thousands of Exxon and Mobil stations. The new functionality leverages tools and security features provided by Equifax, the global information solutions company.
“Citi’s Apply and Buy technology is a groundbreaking digital advancement for the fuel industry and will deliver convenient payment options and ongoing savings to drivers nationwide,” said Craig Vallorano, Head of Citi Retail Services. “ExxonMobil is an exceptionally innovative partner and we are excited to expand our relationship to include mobile payments.”
“Citi Retail Services, supported by Equifax, has helped us deliver this innovative mobile feature that allows consumers to quickly and seamlessly apply for a Smart Card, which will be automatically added as a payment option within the app once approved,” said Miguel Castillo, Americas payments marketing manager for ExxonMobil Fuels, Lubricants & Specialties Marketing Company.
Consumers who apply for a new ExxonMobil Smart Card by July 31 are eligible to save 20 cents on every gallon of Synergy™ fuel for the first two months from their account opening date. Following that, cardholders save six cents on every gallon of fuel purchased at all Exxon and Mobil locations in the U.S. using either their Smart Card at the pump or within Speedpass+.
"It's been our pleasure to power this innovative partnership using our best-of-breed data and unique technology," said Lindsay Soergel, GM, Mobile and e-Commerce, Equifax.
