EMV chips like in Europe or Canada. They're coming to the US and some banks have started to offer them (Citi's Thank you point preferred card). Amex has rolled them out and offers them by request. However, initially they had said that the Zync could have a chip but then they said it would come after October 31st, hence the OP's post.

Re: Got A Call From Amex, From an unknown number.

I got the same call from a blocked number from Amex two days ago... He said they will issue me my zync with emv chip at the end of the month... Guess they knew I got the same card (no chip) a few weeks ago when I said I wanted my zync with chip...

Re: Got A Call From Amex, From an unknown number.

So does anyone if there are places or stores that accept EMV chips in the US? For instance, any big retailers or stores etc. I am curious to know if there are places where I could use it.
