They said the same thing too when I asked about Chip and Pin but hey, it was worth a shot. I think some of the RFID issue stems from the base that the card is geared towards. ZYNC is the younger crowd who may feel more comfortable that the typical Platinum holder who may be older. Just some thoughts.
Good points. It would be nice if there was an option though, if you called in. Not all of us are older
I plan on my Platinum being the primary "use for everything" card.
The Zync has a sturdy feel to it and is a tiny bit thicker than the Platinum, probably due to the chip. I also wonder why they put the "Platinum" label over the top edge of the Gladiator - it would have been more appropriate to move up the wording. Both the Zync and the Platinum have the card numbers over the top of the Gladiator, but the colors on the numbers change to blend on the Zync and they're just black on the Platinum. Mildly irritating. Sorry, I have a bit of design OCD sometimes
I would think they would put some of the same design "polish" on the higher end card.
I was surprised it offered the pay over time feature when I activated. I will likely never use the feature, but it's nice to know it's available if it's ever needed. I prefer charge card vs. credit card.
