Chip and PIN cards

Jump to last reply

In this Sunday's NY Times, there was an article suggesting that with the near-universal usage of "chip and PIN" cards in Europe (vs. the magnetic strip cards we use in the U.S.), it was becoming more difficult in some situations to use a U.S. credit card, even where credit cards are routinely accepted. The article also noted that U.S. banks are unlikely to move to chip and PIN cards anytime soon. We saw that all Europeans had the chip and PIN cards when we were in France last year, but I wonder if we should be concerned about our cards being accepted in Spain and France next year. Anyone with more recent experience with this? Thanks.
