08:11 EDTMACapital One slips after Costco enters co-brand card pact with Visa, Citi
Shares of Capital One (COF) are slipping in pre-market trading after Costco Wholesale (COST) announced it has entered into a new co-brand credit card program agreement with Citi (C) and an acceptance and co-brand incentive agreement with Visa (V). The Fly notes that on February 12 American Express (AXP) announced that its U.S. co-brand and merchant acceptance agreements with Costco are set to end on March 31, 2016. On October 1 of last year, MasterCard Canada (MA) entered into an agreement with Costco Canada to open credit card acceptance to MasterCard cardholders. In addition, Capital One rolled out a new cobranded MasterCard credit card with Costco Canada at that time, which may have led some to speculate that Capital One and MasterCard could have the inside track for a U.S. deal with Costco. In pre-market trading, Capital One shares slid 0.56% to $78.27 and MasterCard shares slipped fractionally lower to $90.
