Chase first announced that it would start issuing credit cards with built-in contactless payment back in November 2018. The issuer has since rolled out several contactless versions of its most popular cards, and Chase Visa cardholders are now receiving cards with contactless capabilities upon approval and/or card renewal. In fact, The Points Guy himself just got a new contactless Chase Sapphire Reserve card in the mail.
If you’re wondering whether your current Chase card or a new card you’re considering applying for is contactless, you can check out Chase’s list of contactless credit cards on its site. But here’s the current list of Chase contactless credit cards available as of Sept. 9, 2019:

While the Ink Business cards are not listed on Chase’s contactless cards landing page, a representative did confirm that all three Ink Business cards are contactless. If you currently have a non-contactless Chase card on this list, you should be able to reach out to request a new contactless card. I just requested a contactless version of my Chase Sapphire Preferred, and customer service responded that they would mail me a new contactless card immediately.
Contactless payments have been around for years, just not in the United States. In some regions of the globe, such as Europe and Australia, contactless payments have been the standard for quite some time. During my recent trip to Croatia, for example, most vendors that accepted my Chase Sapphire Preferred (which was issued to me before Chase’s transition to contactless) assumed it was contactless until I pointed out that they would have to use the chip reader.
Chase was one of the first major issuers in the U.S. to embrace contactless technology. Fortunately, with the widespread acceptance of Apple Pay and Google Pay, contactless-enabled cards are finally being issued for certain cards across other card issuers as well — including Amex and Wells Fargo.
