HSN credit card...

Why does this card have a magstripe?! It can't be swiped anywhere....

 

Any ideas? Conspiracy theories? Smiley Very Happy

 

I wonder if theres a way to find out what data is embedded on a cc magstripe....

Well, it's a store card to a place that doesn't have any physical so paying to put a mag strip on it just doesn't make sense.  You can inly use it with them which is on the phone or online so you will never need to swipe it.

HSN is based in Tampa and they have a store at their studio complex.   I would imagine you would be able to use the HSN card at the complex.  The HSN card is a WFCB, Comenity card.

WFCB, hard pull or soft for customer initiated CLI requests?
