...about not having one in my wallet.
But seriously, who else here hasn't yet gotten any card with an EMV chip?
I've got 2 Amex cards, a Chase, a Barclaycard, and a Discover. I know my particular cards are not geared towards travel, but these are still four of the better lenders and you'd think one of them might try to make chips standard on all cards.
I know I could call and request a card with a chip, at least for the Amexes, but international travel is still a few months away. More importantly, the EMV chip is like the cheapskate's Centurion - if you request an invitation, then you haven't really earned it.
I am a bit curious how long it would take to get an EMV card without specifically requesting one - or applying for one that always comes with one. And if a spring 2015 Arrival+ comes without one, I will be genuinely angry.
PRG and BCE definitely come with chips at least some of the time. What about Sallie Mae, Freedom, and It?
