All the major accepting banks have been able to process EMV for a year or more. They're on the hook if they don't, come October.

The only place I've consistantly used EMV is Walmart. My own small business also now accepts EMV via the new Square card reader.
American Express Platinum Card
American Express TrueEarnings Card from Costco
Marriott Rewards Premier Visa Signature Card
Chase Sapphire Preferred World MasterCard
Discover It
