Enhanced Security

  • The security Chip Technology provides has been used globally for the last decade and is proven to reduce counterfeit fraud.
  • Chip Cards provide better fraud protection than traditional cards when used at a chip enabled terminal. They have an embedded microchip that turns cardmember information into a unique code, making it difficult to duplicate.

Easy and Convenient

Chip Technology is available in the U.S. and Citi wants you to be ready. Simply follow the terminal prompts, outlined below, to make a transaction at a chip terminal:

  1. Insert your credit card into the chip terminal and press the green button to accept the amount (no PIN required).
  2. Be sure to leave your card in the terminal and wait for authorization before removing your card.
  3. Sign the receipt, and off you go.
  • If a merchant does not yet have a chip terminal, just swipe as usual since your card still has a magnetic stripe.
  • For phone and online transactions, just complete your transaction as usual.

Global Acceptance

  • Worldwide Acceptance. Travel with ease and enjoy global acceptance with your Chip Card.
  • Now in the U.S. Credit Card Issuers & Merchants in the U.S. are transitioning to Chip Technology that is in use around the world.
