National Credit Federation President Dave Fulk Says Get Your Chip Card, But Don’t Throw Away Your Magnetic Stripe Card Just Yet
Tampa, FL — Apr 21, 2015 — Dave Fulk, president of National Credit Federation, published a new blog post entitled “Do You Need To Get A Chip Card?” In the post, he tells readers that picking up a chip card now is a good idea, but that due to infrastructural problems, not all retailers will be ready to accept them by the October 2015 switch-over deadline.
Fulk says, “So do you need to get a chip card? Sooner or later, yes. But don’t drop what you’re doing just yet. Since not all retailers accept them, it’s advisable to keep a traditional credit card handy just in case. But if you value the extra protection the chip has to offer — and we hope you do — talk to your credit card company about issuing you a new card. You’ll be ahead of the game, and have more secure finances because of it.”
Dave Fulk, NACSO, CCRA, is the president of National Credit Federation and a national speaker on finance and credit. He has over 10 years of experience in the financial industry, specializing in finance, mortgages, and credit.
