We are upgrading our Visa credit cards to a microchip card in order to provide you with enhanced benefits and improved security! It has a traditional magnetic strip with a new embedded microchip for an added layer of protection at chip-enabled ATMs and terminals. It can also be swiped as usual even if the terminal doesn't have chip technology.
