Chase Chips bigger than everyone....

Why are Chase credit💳 chips bigger than other cards? They look so much better. Lol

Re: Chase Chips bigger than everyone....

Chase uses an 8 point contact, whereas most everyone else has 6 pins.

 

As to why...? dunno

Because your cards likely don't have contactless built into them.

I'm pretty sure that means that the Amex is contactless, you can just wave or tap over a terminal and pay. I just recently read here that the Amex with contactless has a matte plastic back vs metal, like the non contactless version.

 

I wonder if that means the Chase card is contactless as well? Or if they just use a different version/brand/model chip?

Re: Chase Chips bigger than everyone....

Based on this I am guessing the CSR is not Contactless...
