Went to a small shoe/clothing store here today that still inserts for customers. Their VX520 did support debit, though, so they hand the PIN pad over if it asks for one. Plus, they had Apple and...

In fairness, the bag you end up paying for should theoretically be reusable for the next trip (hence the thicker materials), so it's not as though one's paying for no benefit. Unfortunately, there's...

I walked by my local one tonight and they apparently have cards inside their terminal's chip slot now (as well as customer side placement of the terminal itself). Sounds like the repositioning might...

Yesterday I went through the Coffee Bean drive through. The good news is that a) the drive through employee knew about tap-enabled cards and held out the MX925 to let me tap my Diners Club MC and b)...

I got an email on Friday telling me that they mailed a new Cash Rewards CC to replace one about to expire, so we'll see if that one ends up having contactless. It sounds like they're keeping PIN on...

The Freedom card (which has no AF) seems to do okay by having a $1500/quarter limit for its quarterly 5x categories, so 3x on an AF card doesn't seem completely out of the question. Especially if...

I think it helped a little bit but I still run into places that insert my card for me (mainly restaurants that had to immediately switch to takeout/delivery only). What will be more telling is how...

Not sure I'd count SAN as having "no" public transportation. For sure. It's close enough to downtown that it's theoretically walkable (albeit a pretty long walk, so you may not want to do it if you...

I think it's location dependent whether they're actually doing that. I know at my local one, they didn't hand the terminal out to you at all, even for Apple Pay and the like (though this might have...

From what I can tell, it appears we've mostly given up on faster wireline internet and are pushing wireless internet (mainly via 5G) as the fix. I'm not sure it'll fix the availability problem but if...

Also, on a somewhat related note, I just ran cardpeek on my Diners Club MC and it appears that it does record EMV contactless transactions in its transaction log now. Should mean that I don't need to...

Spectrum's Gig service has 40mbps uploads, BTW, not 20. But yeah, US internet prices are more expensive than a lot of other places (though this is definitely region dependent).

The pumps in question don't seem to use Quick Chip, so the pre-authorization amount should in theory be the same as the cryptogram amount (which according to cardpeek is $1). That'll be something...

PIN has tended to be mandated at a government level in the countries that have it, though. And when signature does happen, it's scrutinized a lot more heavily than it is in the US (where it might as...

Actually, it seems that I only got one text message notification (for the final fuel amount) on my Diners Club MC. I would have expected to get one for the $1 pre-auth, either as the only...

What's their plan for contactless? Are they going to release a new version of the tablet that can do it?

The author might have gone based on public website info, too, which may not necessarily indicate that PIN preference is available. I only heard about the option from posts online, for instance.

Tried tapping my Revolut card at Arco this morning and got a "card not accepted, use chip reader" error. Inserting worked fine, however. This location is one of the ones that don't accept credit...

From what I remember, it was the case regardless of card type.



Those cards were intended for staff, though. If you're going to post anything it should probably be something more from the...

A while back I thought I saw something in the MC rules requiring PIN to be somewhere on the card (even if it were below no CVM), so that might be playing into that. Then again, there's at least one...

Yeah, the one on the MC without the offline PIN entries is for sure the contactless CVM list.

Weird, I would think there'd only be one considering it's a credit card. Maybe one of them is the contactless CVM list?

Anyway, paste both here?
