Smart Chip TechnologyFoothill Smart Chip MasterCard

As chip technology will soon become the security standard in the U.S., many merchants are beginning to accept chip cards and we want you to be ready.

Easy to Use

Use your personal chip card to make transactions at the same places you do today. For merchants who have chip-enabled terminals, insert your card and approve your purchase. Otherwise – swipe your card as you normally would.

 


Added Layer of Security

The new chip on your card provides additional security when used at a chip-enabled terminal. Data stored on the chip is more difficult to counterfeit. Unlike traditional swipe cards, account information is encoded differently after every transaction, making it harder for fraudsters to counterfeit cards. EMV technology is not new––Europe, Asia, and Latin American countries have been using it for years.

Accepted Anywhere

Chip-enabled terminals are coming to stores throughout the U.S. so you'll be ready to use your card when you see the new terminals. You’ll enjoy greater acceptance when traveling as chip cards are common in over 130 countries around the world, including Canada, Mexico and the United Kingdom.

No Extra Cost

Enjoy your new card with chip technology at no additional cost.
