Visa® Debit Card with Chip Technology
All new Pinnacle Bank Visa® Debit Cards now have an added layer of protection with chip technology. The embedded chips inside our debit cards work together with chip-enabled card readers and ATM terminals to reduce fraud. Unlike magnetic stripe cards, chip cards are equipped with microprocessors that store cardholder information and give each transaction a unique code that can’t be used again, making stolen data virtually useless.
While many retailers already have chip-enabled readers in place, others are still integrating these readers into their existing payment systems. If a merchant doesn’t have an active chip card terminal, you can use your card as you have previously by swiping and signing.
For more information about your debit card with chip technology, call or stop by your local branch.
