They sent me an identical card without deactivating my old one - does anyone know if the EMV chip is also identical (i.e. I should hang on to both cards) OR should I get rid of the extra card to prevent problems?
Not understanding your question. Your current Ritz card, in essence, is not working because the mag strip doesn't always work, hence making the original card not fully functional. So you ordered a replacement card (not a new card with new number, but simply a duplicate card), that includes an EMV chip in the duplicate, as well as the EMV chip in the original? And your question is what? They're not going to deactivate your original card, since the 2nd card is a DUPLICATE, not a replacement with a new number. IF the 2nd card is a complete DUPLICATE of the 1st card, and that's the way I'm understanding your question, I'd simply shred the 1st/original card, since you stated that the mag strip doesn't always work, and use only the 2nd/DUPLICATE not REPLACEMENT card.
