Chase Bank Now Issuing Microchip Debit Cards

Microchips are the wave of the future and Chase Bank is cashing in on the trend a little early. Beginning this week, Chase Bank began offering a debit card that utilizes a microchip that will eventually totally replace the magnetic stripe.

Chase is currently issuing cards with both chips and the magnetic stripe, so your in-store experience won’t change. Over time, as banks like Chase move away from the magnetic stripes, you’ll no longer swipe your card.
