How to use a new credit card with a chip

If you’re in the US, you may have gotten a new credit card that has a microchip built into it. With your old credit card, the steps to use it were:

1) Swipe

And you may or may not sign depending on the total amount.

With your new card, the process is enhanced for added security. Now, you’ll be doing:

1) Insert card into reader
2) Wait for cashier to inform you that they don’t support the chip yet
3) Swipe

Man, the advancement of technology is great, isn’t it?
