Do you think it looks better with or without chip?  I am thinking of calling for a chip for mine.

@ezdoesit, that really depends on the person. At first when the EMVs first came to the US, I thought wow, it looks so cool, like other foreign countries. Now that it's been awhile, I feel like it throws the symmetry off the credit cards.

Yep, as I commented in another thread, for the current cards it looks like something just stuck on an existing design, and doesn't flow with it at all.   But for many there is the intial super-kewl phase, so they are happy..
