Re: Mastercard Rolls Out Credit Card with Display and Keypad

Too bad they are wholsale banking only in the US.  Yes, i was looking to see if they issued anything in the US, I really want that card.  I don't have any cards for aesthetic reasons only but that one *could* be functional as well as pretty!

I think it will be awhile before the us moves to a card like that-if they even do at all. Kind of like how slow the transition to emv chips has been here

Right thats what I mean. Over in europe emv is the standard (and has been for awhile afaik), but in the us only a small percentage of credit cards have emv. So while europe may be beginning to move to these display type of credit cards from the article, I would venture that the us will be much slower to respond. I'm thinking it will be years, maybe even a decade or so, until we see anything like this in the us

I don't like the balance or available credit being displayed to the cashier. Doesn't seem safe
