Credit cards with chips do yours work properly?
September 13, 2017 10:36am CST
I tried using my credit card with a chip for the first time at a local convenience store and for some reason it didn't work. They have a chip reader. It should work. It was asking me to insert my pin which it shouldn't do for a credit transaction. This is the first time it has happened..so I am not sure if it was me or the card. I will try it again today at another store I think and see what happens. Any chip tips?

They did not at first, but now they are all working fine Snowy. One card I have though will not work at the public transportation ticket terminal for some reason. Yes every since they changed over, they seem a toss up if they will work or not.

Mine do not always work. I was told they work better and are more secure, they do not take as much information as a card that slides. Well most chip cards sit in the machine so long, it good get my whole life history in my opinion.
We have credit cards with a chip from 15 years here in Europe. You must all the time type your PIN when you make a transaction. From two years, if the amount is less than $40, you only wave your car in front of the machine and you do not need to enter the PIN.
