U.S. consumers who use credit and debit cards are now receiving new cards with embedded chips that replace their old magnetic stripe cards. To help ease the transition for cardholders, Consumer Action has created "A consumer's guide to 'chip' cards," a free publication designed to help credit and debit cardholders understand why the transition is taking place, how the checkout process will change, what consumer protections they will have and where to get more information.
Also known as EMV ("Europay, MasterCard, and Visa"), the chip card technology is already widely used in other countries because it provides greater protection against fraud at the payment terminal. While the new cards will be just as easy to use, the process--insert instead of swipe--will be a little different. Cardholders who haven't already received replacement cards are likely to receive them from their issuing bank by the end of 2015.
