Anyone getting a new CDP card with the EMV chip and notice a difference in the card's appearance (besides the obvious!)
The colour of the card is a different black and it seems to have a sort of mini-polka dot/pixel type effect to it, moreso than the "textured" effect of the non-EMV card.
I know in the scheme of things this isn't a big deal, but it just struck me as being odd that they would make a change to the appearance beyond the inclusion of the EMV chip.
Hi...... I have it with the chip, a nd my wife has the non chip version.
Very different in my opinion. The dots barely appear on the non chip version, and the chipped version is a pokka dot pattern.
Personally I like the look s of the non checkered version.
did you just got approved or they sent u a card with EMV because u requested one?
Is EMV standard in all CDP cards now?
they have been sending me offers for CDP but i threw them away because it was a no-rewards card. I will definitely apply if there's EMV since I travel overseas quite a bit.
I don't have that, but did request a chip for the ThankYou Preferred card and it is darker and a little different texture than before.
its a small electronic chip on the cards.
most places in EU and asia use that instead of the magnetic strip so its a lot more convenient if you travel a lot.
Ohh okay. Would it be useful to have in the US?
Not anytime in the immediate future. Figure someday it'll happen but it could literally be years.
I only pursued getting an EMV chip in the somewhat rare event that I get sent to Europe to open a new datacenter for one of the folks I work for; however, it's an admittedly low probability for me and as a result is simply a precaution.
well, maybe our US merchants need to get on it!! Sounds like the EMV is a cool, efficient feature!!!! My Citi Dia Pref already has the texture the ops are describing though lol
It is not even nessary in Europe, almost all terminals are swipe and sighn still and the ones that are pin only still let you swipe and sighn
