Where's the contactless payment logo? Mine is not a Signature, but I just see no mention of contactless function.

Other than that, it almost looks the exact same. Just logo and name moved around. But, I still want that sucker.

I just applied for this in branch yesterday. Got approved for $1,500. Went home and applied for a Marriott and instapproved for $5,000 off the same EX pull.

Just an update.

Chase issued the $200 back offer and sent an EMV chipped replacement card today. So, I'm glad to see they finally show me some love.

The contactless payment logo is on the back of the non-EMV card.

The RFID chip's contour can be observed if you watch an actual card carefully. The picture has lost much details.
The EMV chip leaves a concave on the back, but it is nearly impossible to observe that from the picture (really obvious if you look at an actual card).

The EMV version has dropped the Blink (contactless) function. Actually I have used Blink on suburban buses for a few times, which I think it did help me. The problem with this RFID is sometimes I forget to take my transit card out if I am carrying both the transit card and Freedom in my wallet, so when I scan the card(s) the machine will have no clue which card I am using.

All EMV.

Wow. Nope, my card does not have EMV or RFID chip. The mag strip and all is different on mine.

My EMV card was already issued, so I'm just waiting on that. But, the fact that 3 different cards currently exist is weird.
