I've gotten into 20 minute arguments over this enough times with general managers to tell you that it doesn't matter what is allowed or disallowed, it rarely will end in your favor. Some GM's, not customer service or supervisor types, know how to accept a credit card and compare signatures, others are just as brain-dead as their underlings. They only do what they are told, they want their paycheck.
My new tactic is swipe with Amex and show them by BoA with photo on it, usually they don't know the difference but sometimes they look and act like I'm deaf when they demand identification and that a BoA credit card with your picture on it doesn't matter. I think BoA puts pictures on cards for this reason, not just for fun.
A pin can be good and bad, if somebody gets your pin then you can't dispute the charges. Chip and pin is better as the card cant really be duplicated.
