A Moment in Bank History

Chase Universal Account


Betsy Werley sent in this brochure from the 1980s.

"The fashions alone, particularly the women's blouses, bring back not-so-fond memories," she wrote to us.
Tom Lynch commented: "The product, The Universal Account, rings memory chimes but opens no recall doors. I think Direct Response Banking, for which I was responsible, was involved with its development— must have, given that the Chase VISA World Card was part of the package; Chase, under Gordon Fair, was the first to launch the World Card into the VISA universe."
