      Activate your card today to begin enjoying the added benefits of chip technology:

Secure.
The small square chip on the front of the card is the heart of the card’s fraud prevention. When you use your card at a chip-activated terminal, the embedded chip generates a one-time purchase to help prevent fraud.

Simple.
You can use your chip card everywhere. If a merchant is not chip-capable yet, your transaction will be processed with a swipe using the magnetic strip on the back. Otherwise, place your card into a chip capable terminal with the chip facing up. Follow the prompts on the screen before removing your card. It's as easy as 1-2-3.

Step 1. Insert your chip card into the slot at the base of the terminal.
Step 2. Leave your card in the slot for the duration of the transaction.
Step 3. Remove your card when prompted by the terminal.

Universal.
Although new to the U.S., chip cards have been the standard form of payment in Canada and Europe for years. With your new chip card, you will enjoy greater acceptance when traveling and added security as well.
