I don't really need Chip & Signature, but I sort of wanted it, so I initiated an online chat earlier today.
I asked if it was available for my PRG and HHonors cards, since I'd be traveling internationally in a few months. After the verification questions and a delay, the CSR said it was available---but didn't offer to send them to me. I then asked how I would get them, and the CSR said I could request them when I needed them. Again, didn't offer to send them.
The sense I got was that the CSR wasn't eager to send them out, and only wanted to do so if/when I really needed the Chip & Sig cards. Perhaps it's because these were new accounts and they didn't want to pay to overnight cards again? I wouldn't have requested overnighting, though.
Anyway, just sharing my experience. I didn't submit a request for Chip & Sig cards.
