Not keen on posting a photo of my card. If you call they can send one to you. There was a glitch earlier thus month that prevented it from converting until now.

I just for the second time today.
1st time this afternoon I was told that it is NOT available.
2nd time (now) I was told it is available and is being sent first class which will arrive on Saturday. She did tell me that one I convert to ChipSig I cannot opt to go back. Lets see how this plays out!

Mine was next day to me. Could be the fact that they sent 3 wrong ones.

They overnighted it the first time for me but sent and RFID instead of EMV.

Love the chip, thanks for the pic!! Have been looking all over the web for a zync with the EMV. Your pic might be the first one. Thx

Interesting- would you happen to have a pic of your RFID instead of EMV Zync card? Or does it just look like a normal card w/ an RFID chip in it?

I miss the small looking chips. All my UK cards are contactless (which is good as most of my small transactions are contact less) but the chips on the front are always massive on dual contactless/emv cards.

I wont be able to post it until much later tonight. It basically has a small little "wifi signal logo" on the back, and I you look really closely at the edges you can see that the card is actually compressed out of two very thin cards. The final thickness of the card is about the same and does not feel any different.

This is good news. It's nice to have global acceptance for the card. Also, the chip adds to the gold card I think. It makes it stand out a bit more.
