I just don't get why virtually every bank in America decided that Chip+Sig would be appropriate on cards like CSP and PRG targeted towards people who travel. Magnetic stripes and Chip+Sig may make sense for lower-end, no-AF, non-travel cards - but not for premium travel ones.
Similarly, I don't understand how so many foreign business owners aren't accustomed to the occasional American customer. It is definitely an inconvenience for them, but it shouldn't be so surprising.
I've considered getting a UNFCU card if I don't have an existing Visa or MC convert to a "pure" Chip+PIN system soon. Arrival is supposed to be switching soon to the same semi-reliable signature/PIN "hybrid" system Arrival+ uses.
Debit will do the job, but the fees add up!
