liability shift to merchants who don't do chip cards is october of next year. That only applies if the card has a chip, of course. Expect that any card issued or reissued from now on will have a chip.

Strange...I had a similar experience...I recently (November but it took a month!!) requested to change my BofA Accelerated Cash Rewards Amex to the BankAmericard Better Balance Rewards MasterCard ($120 a year for free for just charging and paying the gym membership!). Well my Amex expired 4/14 so I was expecting my new MasterCard to have an expiry date of 2017 or 2018...nope, it has the same expiry date of 4/14! My MasterCard did not come with the chip.

I noticed on the back of my new MasterCard that it was made by Oberthur. Oberthur is not in the business of making non EMV cards, so that tells me that BofA is probably planning on rolling out full EMV here in the next few months.

I want to point out too, that I have a BankAmericard Cash Rewards Visa Signature that I successfully got the EMV chip for back in October 2012 when BofA first started offering it and that card was made by Oberthur's direct competitor, Gemalto (also not in the business of making non EMV cards). Normal, non-EMV BofA cards were made by VCT-NJ. So I am wondering if BofA is switching from Gemalto to Oberthur and at the same time planning on rolling EMV out in masse in the next few months. My Visa expires 5/14 so I will have to see if my replacement is a Gemalto or Oberthur made card....

Of course, since they sent yours with a chip already I have no idea why they would only have a 1 month expiry date.....
