PLANO, Texas, May 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- WorldVentures™, a privately held leading direct seller of vacation and entertainment club memberships and Inc. 5000 fastest-growing company, today revealed some of the user interface (UI) features for the new SmartCard in development with Connecticut-based Nxt-ID, Inc.

- Load up to 10 records (credit cards, loyalty cards, identity cards, and other data); additional records may be stored on WorldVentures's DreamTrips mobile app and interchanged with the records on the SmartCard at the election of a Member
- Use as a payment method in the same way as a credit card, where accepted
- Earn points at select restaurants worldwide that can be used towards DreamTrips vacations
- Engage and interact socially with other DreamTrips Members worldwide through its communication features
Beta cards are currently in testing. It is expected that the SmartCards will be made available to the entire DreamTrips membership later this year.
