08:03 EDTTGT, MATarget: REDcard portfolio to be enabled with MasterCard's chip-and-PIN solution
Target (TGT) announced a significant new initiative as part of the companyís accelerated transition to chip-and-PIN-enabled REDcards. Beginning in early 2015, the entire REDcard portfolio, including all Target-branded credit and debit cards, will be enabled with MasterCardís (MA) chip-and-PIN solution. Existing co-branded cards will be reissued as MasterCard co-branded chip-and-PIN cards. Ultimately, through this initiative, all of Targetís REDcard products will be chip-and-PIN secured. Earlier this year, Target announced an accelerated $100 million plan to move its REDcard portfolio to chip-and-PIN-enabled technology and to install supporting software and next-generation payment devices in stores. The new payment terminals will be in all 1,797 U.S. stores by this September, six months ahead of schedule. In addition, by early next year, Target will enable all REDcards with chip-and-PIN technology and begin accepting payments from all chip-enabled cards in its stores.

06:35 EDTMAApple getting discounted card fees for Apple Pay, NY Times reports
Banks are charging Apple lower than usual credit card fees for the tech giant's new mobile payment system, according to The New York Times. The banks hope that participating in Apple Pay will enable them to process transactions that aren't currently being paid for with credit cards, the newspaper explained. The banks and credit card networks also hope to use Apple Pay to prevent technologies that don't incorporate banks from becoming popular, The Times reported. Publicly traded credit card networks include American Express (AXP), Capital One (COF), Discover (DFS), MasterCard (MA) and Visa (V). Publicly traded banks include Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC)..Reference Link
