Chase Sapphire Preferred now with Chip and Signature, 3x on Dining Purchase on Friday
According to The Point Guy (link), the Chase Sapphire Preferred Credit Card now comes with a Chip and Signature. If you currently have a CSP CC, you can call the number on the back of the card and they will send you a new card with a EMV chip.
Chip and Signature is not as good as Chip and Pin. In Europe and Asia, the credit card is not swiped but inserted half way to read the EMV chip. After reading the data on the chip, you will usually need to sign the receipt. So in the end, the Chip and Signature card is not much different than a normal magnetic strip credit card.
Also, tomorrow is Friday, November 1 (aka the first Friday of November). Do not forget to take advantage of the CSP 3x points on dining for the first Friday of the month. For more info, please read Lucky’s post.
Happy Halloween everyone!
