USAA Offering EMV Chip and PIN

‎01-31-2013 02:05 PM

I just got off the phone with USAA. They're converting my USAA Platinum MasterCard to a Chip and PIN card (actual Chip and PIN, mind you, with an... actual PIN). I didn't really get any details on whether it was available for Visa or Amex cards (likely not?), but I was told

 

a) it will only come in the black design

b ) it will have a PIN

c) I get one PIN for my account, including AUs/additional cards

d) I can't change the PIN myself

e) card number/rates/rewards will not change

 

The CSR was not aware of Chip/Sig (she confused it with Visa Signature, which she said "we're beginning to offer to qualified accounts"). I commented that perhaps it was because a large part of their customer base is deployed in Europe and needs maximum compatibility - she agreed this makes sense.

That's great! That means your pin can be used at self attended kiosks overseas. I have a bofa travel rewards card but its only chip and signature.

 

Are EMV chips only available for USAA mastercards?

Seems like this has only been available for a few weeks or so. And no one has reported anything on the Amex and Visa cards yet.

Woo! Just got off the phone with USAA. Upgraded my Platinum rateAdvantage Mastercard!

 

(I was the CSR's first request for chip&PIN)

 

Now to call and harass all my other card issuers.

 

Oh, also conveniently confirmed my USAA card is set to auto-CLI at regular intervals! \o/

Be careful what you wish for. Many CB members have a large amount of credit cards. When chip and PIN comes to the US, how will we remember all those PINs? Edited by Burgerwars

So, called AMEX. My BCP is being re-issued with a chip&PIN.

I didn't have my Zync onhand, so couldn't do that one.

 

Called NFCU - they have no EMV capabilities at this time.

 

Called Chase - the CSR said he will ask about it, since we both know about chip&sig (which is already on my Select card), but he didn't realize any major issuer had taken the plunge on EMV. Aside from that, they've been looking at it, with possibly a 2015 roadmap.

 

Called Wells Fargo - they said not only no, but HELL NO. They trialed it before, and all the chip&PIN transactions processed as cash advances, thus costing the customer(s) more money.

 

Called Discover - they're looking at it, but no roadmap known to the peons at this time.

Let us know if it shows up with a chip.

 

Users on another forum report asking for one earlier this week and being told that a replacement was being sent out. Once it showed up, no chip! They called Amex to ask what's up, and the CSR said they're only issuing them for Platinum and Cent. Apparently, the previous CSR had signed them up to have EMV as the "preference" for future replacements once it is released but that they actually weren't available yet. I guess they're trying out the chips on just a few cards first to try to "work out the kinks"

Im with you BurgerWars, we cant stop technology and Im in no hurry to try to remember more pins just to make a purchase. I cant remember the ones I have for cash advances. :wave:

Just make it the last 4 digits of your card number! Or the last four of your SSN. :good:

I just got off the phone for requesting new Chip and PIN card. Here is some info:



It is a new thing even the CSR haven't seen one. The Chip and PIN card comes in one design. It is the Black Card. You cannot keep the design you currently have. The PIN and card will come separately within 10 days. You will memorize the PIN and they won't able to change it. The Chip and PIN only available to Mastercard only (NOT Amex and Visa). It doesn't change the current term of the card and rewards program of the card. You need to destroy your current card when you receive your new card.



It took only 5 to 10 mins. to change it.

Ron, which card is the black card?

My rateAdvantage card is a plain black card.

Here is the card looks like:

That particular card doesn't look to be available for limited members, like me. I don't plan on applying for a USAA card until sometime next year. Maybe by that time other cards will be chipped. Edited by Burgerwars

What is your score?

 

 

Ron.

Around 620. Might go up soon as I'm finishing up rehabilitation on a student loan. DTI is pretty high, too, because of student loans. From the credit pulls, I don't feel too confident but may try anyways since I have very few hard pulls on my credit right now.

My understanding is that PIN and chip is availble on any mastercard, which they do offer mastercards to limited members.

It is not available on my Affinity Mastercard. I also offered to do a product change. They said I would have to apply for a new World M/C and then ask for the Chip and Pin to be issued from that.

So it has to be a world master card?? Uuughh... I keep trying to like USAA, but I'm starting to think they aren't the right bank for me :(

      So, when I signed up for MyFICO recently I didn't actually read , so didn't realize I'd only be getting one 3-in-1 report per year. Not acceptable, but totally on me
       
      So, I poke around CB per usual when I have a credit related question and eventually stumble across BW's Master How to Sign up for USAA CreditCheck Monitoring Premium (CCMP) Thread. Cool.
       
      I follow along his steps and, after entering my SSN the site returns a message asking me to confirm that I am [NAME REDACTED]. Now here's the "funny" part - the name they showed was my birth name, which I haven't used (and hasn't been on my Social Security card, credit reports or ANYthing else) in over two decades!
       
      Clearly, I think, they're connecting to some bizarre, totally outdated database. But I soldier on (so to speak), confirming that I am, indeed this person and managed to get signed up.
       
      After checking out my reports and learning my way around the CCMP site I return to the USAA site and notice that I actually entered my address wrong. So, I go to change it and, after entering the correct info and clicking next, the site informs me that it can't change info for MY MOTHER because we live at a different addresses. Now, I haven't spoken to my mother almost a decade and I certainly didn't enter her name anywhere at USAA or CCMP, (other than her maiden name as requested, but the name they posted back to me was her (third) married name) so I'm compleely flumoxed.
       
      I poke around a little more and it seems I not only signed up for CCMP, but also managed to join USAA, which I thought was impossible for me. My father was in the Air Force and the Navy, but I haven't spoken him since the day I graduated from high school in 1987, so I would have no idea any of his relevant required info. My maternal grandfather was also in the Navy, but he died over 20 years ago, so again, I have no access to his info.
       
      Yet, alas, I've somehow not only (literally) stumbled into USAA membership, but my account has somehow been created under a name that is no longer legally mine and been connected to my estranged mother's account.
       
      DO things get any more bizarre?

      Well, one more step for the DW. Approved for $16K on their Rate Advantage Platinum MasterCard, HP on EQ.
       
      Her Scores:
       
      Exp : 789
      TU : 798
      Eq : 806
       
      Over the last twelve days, she's scored:
       
      AMEX EDC - $9,400 to $28,200
      NFCU Flagship - $10,000
      NASA Visa - $13,000
      BECU - $25,000
      BOA - $8,200 > $16,400
      USAA - $16,000
       
      For a total of $91,000 in new credit!
       
      I think this evening she'll apply for a second NFCU and a Citi card, then off to the garden!
       
       

       
    • By I don't even...
      Has any one else noticed CCMP's questionable math? I get that they are counting all revolving accounts as both Retail and Bank cards, but how does 5+1=7 or 1+4=6? Any ideas? Any one else with similar results?
       

       
      Edit: grammar &c.

      the last two inquiries shown on this report have long been B* from Equifax Complete. Does USAA not report updated Inquiries (hard) on a timely basis or do I have a problem? and it doesn't show a legit HI from Oct. 9th... May I assume that USAA is not at its finest on the latest and greates of HI reporting? Also, it is showing a CA that was removed almost immediately as the entry was in error... but it is still zinging my experian score...it is dated 9/15 and was removed by CA almost immediately after call from my lawyer...

      Well after trying to freeze my EX report online I finally broke down and called them. Only took a couple of minutes but I just despise talking on the phone to "credit people". Maybe not "credit people" but it just amps my blood pressure up, LOL.
       
      Anyway, after I got my EXP frozen I applied online for a Bank of America credit limit increase.
      Had it over a year in June of 2013 and they started me off at $10,000. I left the amount I wanted out an applied, but it came back stating I had to put an amount in the CLI box so I put $25K.
       
      Came back with it increased to $18,000. I'll take that.
       
      Then called into USAA (they have always been super nice btw) and asked for an increase on my AMEX CASH card that they issued me at $13,000. I also had a Visa with them that was at $3,000 that I never use, but they said they would have to pull 2 reports seeing that one was AMEX and one was Visa. So I opted for the AMEX increase. Came back doubled to $26,000. HAPPY, I'll take that too.
       
      Then went to my PNC which is my main bank besides NAVY. Started at $10,800 and they raised me to $25,000. I'm happy with that also.
       
      Decided to try CHASE which was about 20 months old. Started at $12,000 and asked for $25,000. Had to call in for that one and the lady said that a underwriter had to look at it and I would be getting a letter in 7-10 days. BUMMER...............My CLI high was shot down
       
      So I said WTH and applied online for a CLI on my USAA Visa at $3,000 and it came back approved for $9,000
       
      So I can go to bed HAPPY and content that I'm still in Garden mode with CLI's of $41,200.
