NATIONSBANK TOLERATES VISA'S OLYMPIC CREDIT CARDS

     NationsBank, who paid $40M to be the sole U.S. Olympic bank
sponsor, is not making an issue of Visa and several Atlanta-area
banks' marketing of Olympic-related credit or debt cards.  Steven
White, a credit card consultant:  "I don't think they want to
offend Visa or the Olympics."  Nationsbank is a Visa customer and
promotes its own Olympic credit card."  NationsBank released this
statement:  "We expect nonsponsors to do what they can.  We are
confident that by July, 1996, the millions of customers in our
franchise will know NationsBank is the official bank of the 1996
Olympics" (Rodney Ho, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 2/8).
