The representative told me that they are not available yet but there is a select group that are conducting a trial run in the US...of which I could not be a part of right now and did not give me a completion date for the trial. They found initially their chip or system wasn't as secure as they wanted/planned. The rep just told me to keep using and signing and that it is very secure and they'll back me up in the event of any fraud. Good service on the call but disappointing as I just received the V-chip on my Bank Americard Cash Rewards MC and the Discover Zip.
Interesting what they told you about lack of security. If the program is flawed, they have yet to tell those that have gotten the chip it seems of the security glitch in their card. My hope would be that they mean to move from Chip and Sig to Chip and Pin but that's wishful thinking I guess. I was told that they started specifically with the Platinum and Centurion due to the no transaction fee and for those that traveled using those cards. Other cards would slowly be transitioned by 2014.
What Discover card do you have that has a chip in it? ZIP has RFID but not Chip and Pin or Chip and Sig. Discover hasn't even started rolling out Chip cards from what I was told. I could be wrong though.
