Discover Card testing fingertip reader

November 26, 2012 3:16:14 PM PST
Some credit card users will soon be able to make purchases with the touch of their fingertip.

Discover is testing a new system that uses a fingertip reader to complete a transaction.

A card user's index fingerprint is assigned a number used to buy products.

Discover employees are testing the system.

There is no word on when it might be rolled out.
