What do I need to know?
The new chip card technology at our stores will further increase the security of your credit and debit card transactions. Protecting our customer security and reducing fraudulent transactions are a major focus of this new technology. Every time you use your chip card, a unique one-time code is created at checkout in order to make the transaction as secure as possible. Your bank may require you to enter a PIN number as additional security for your account.
Does this impact how I use with my debit card?
You will see a screen to enter your PIN number. You have the choice to process the transaction as a debit by entering the PIN number, or you can choose process as a credit. Your bank may require a PIN number in order to checkout. More than likely this this is the same number you use at the ATM. By entering your PIN number at checkout, this becomes the most secure way to ensure it is you that is authorizing this payment.
