I finally got my Penfed Platinum Cash Rewards Visa yesterday. I found there's not EMV chip on the card. I was disappointed. Can I requested it online or call them?

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but what is the issue about the EMV chip? I was in Europe (Germany and Austria) for 27 days and had not one problem with my existing (US) cards. And i used them a lot. car rental, gas, shopping, grocery, dining ... everywhere no problem at all.
Yes, I know what the chip is, I am from Germany and have a german mastercard with the chip. But do we really need the chip?

WOW! I got my card a while ago, and it did in fact have the EMV chip in it. Sorry that yours didn't have it. Another MYFICO member said he, too, had to do a new application in order to get the chip.
