I just tried to order a debit card with a chip prior to a trip to Europe in September and was told that they did not issue them yet. Are you talking about receiving a debit card or a charge card. I have received EMV charge cards from Chase but nothing from USAA. I sure hope my debit card will work then.
This is a great question. Please note that USAA Bank members are eligible to request a chip and PIN card if they plan to work or travel overseas. In the coming years, when more U.S. merchants begin installing the new chip and PIN payment terminals, USAA Bank will convert all of its credit cards to this technology.
OK, so how do I request a chip & PIN EMV card? Seems to me that USAA should enable this though an interface as seamless as it is to set-up a travel notofication. Guess I have to telephonically deal with a rep.?
