Re: PenFed cards going Contactless

I'm trying to decide whether to call PenFed and ask them to replace my two cards immediately or to wait for them to be replaced in the normal course of renewal.  If I take the second alternative, I won't get my contactless cards until for another two years.

Two years is a long time to wait. I could not wait two years if my credit union went contactless. I would want that feature now.

UpperNwGuy don't starve yourself out of this new valuable tool. Leave your present card in your pocket when doing laundry and likely you will be forced into ordering a replacement Smiley Sad

Re: PenFed cards going Contactless

I hope they make the quality of the card better. I don’t know if I’m the only one but My card looks like it was made in someone’s basement, it was really scratched and the visa symbol looks like a misprint. I’m not expecting a metal card or anything but at least make some effort.

Mine is def the same and im sure they all are....I've had a replacement as well and just like my first card, they seem to come from Penfed as if the material is peeling. I ordered a new one for the contactless option, so we'll see how that goes.
