Am I suppose to sign the back of Blue??

I don't understand if I'm suppose to or not. There's the strip on the card then some whitish strip with small numbers on it. I showed my mom and she thought I should sign it really small.. Then my bf thought I didn't have to sign it.

I don't sign. I always hand them my card and ID.

Personally I don't sign any of my cards, that way if someone somehow gets a hold of one, they won't have any idea how my signature looks like.

I sign every card that tells me to sign because it's a part of the agreement.

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

True, but in my 7 years of having credit cards I have not once been turned down because my card wasn't signed.

I still don't understand why AE doesn't give you a place to sign on their clear cards!!

I was turned down at a large summer fair (county fair or state fair?) with two small children 2 hours from home and no other plastic and very little cash on me.  We did NOT get into the fair that day and I was left with two crying 8 year olds.

I would have just taken the kids to breakfast and signed them off-site but I had "SEE ID" written in big bold sharpie over the entire sig panel.  It was frustrating that they would not refund the $15 parking I had paid either!  Funny thing is the kids don't even remember it now.  They remember stopping for pancakes on the way home.  I only had one or two cards on me and they were both credit cards, I've learned to never be without an ATM card.  My son is 15 now and I can't keep cash on me, he always needs it for something.
