Chip N Pin Cards

Jump to last reply

Andrews Federal is the only place I could find to get a true Chip N Pin card. Most banks only offer Chip N Signature cards.
One complaint about Andrews though. Beware and apply for Credit Card months before you travel!!!!! I applied back in March 2013... here it is end of May and still no card. Am being told it's being processed but could take 3 weeks for delivery since it is manufactured in Canada. That puts us too late before we leave to have the cards.
The problems have been….you must become a member of the bank 1st, and then apply for card. Then they send out documents via email for you to sign and I didn’t' understand that both me and my husband were sent 2 separate emails with places for our signatures. I assumed mine was the only one sent and thought it curious when I was the only one made to sign. Sent it off anyways, no follow ups from them or anything. Called back 2 weeks later to learn my husband had an email too (went to spam). Once I signed it and sent it off I guess it was approved finally. But Andrews has no communication with you and it's all on your end to make sure the application and cards are being processed. Call them weekly!!!!! Just disappointed that they didn't contact me in any way to let me know status of application.
