Replacement Alaska Airlines Visa Card

My search didn't turn up anyone mentioning this yet..  I just received my replacement Alaska Airlines Visa Signature card with the card number & expiration date printed on the back.  I like it, a very clean look, compared to those outdated embossed versions.

If all banks would do thise we'd be able to squeeze a couple more cards into the wallet instead of the SD.

Re: Replacement Alaska Airlines Visa Card

My replacement Alaska card was the same way. I kinda wish other lenders would follow Apple with the no numbers in the card. Just a little more added security for places where you still have to hand your card over. Mostly restaurants in my opinion.

Or at the very least (and I know it won’t happen at higher end places) but for the Long Horns/Red Lobsters of the world, the ability to swipe and pay at the table like Chili’s.

At least until you actually need your number to be manually typed in. Granted this has only happened to me a couple times. Or when you have to read your CC number to a business that you had physically called ie TrueGreen Lawn service or something.

 

I like the idea of added security however, if there's a will there's a way. My Visa debit card was used in a Market at a POS spot in another state. I had had never used my debit card (not once). I called BoA when I first got the card then set it in my safe. BoA said that someone had actually swiped my card in NJ and I live in TX. At least the BoA fraud department was on it ASAP. In app and online. So what I am saying is that embossed, flat or non existing numbers, even cards that haven't see any public usage, fraud may still happen. 

 

Good Luck!

Re: Replacement Alaska Airlines Visa Card

@CramEiko I get it and there is no 100% way to prevent fraud but ever little bit helps...removing numbers, in my opinion, is a step in the right direction.

And to be honest, I don't think it will be long before other lenders start to copy what Apple and GS has done. Just like metals cards, I believe that it'll eventually catch on. Only time will tell...
