Chip and Pin

Just returned three days ago from my ED. I used an ANDREW's Federal Credit Union Chip and PIN VISA.

While at most places, such as restaurants, it worked as chip and signature, it worked very well as a CHIP and PIN in parking garages and train/subway stations. Saved my butt a couple of times.

I did have to open a checking account with them, but I just put in $25.00 and then fill out credit app and become "member". Just a bunch of paper work.

Not sure why a signature was required at restaurants/stores, but worked fine for me with PIN at unattended parking garage and a subway station.
ED June 2015 535d MSport, Monte Carlo Blue with Silk Grey, even more boxes checked!!
ED June 2012 535i MSport, Alpine with Cinnamon, almost all the boxes checked!!
Prior ED 2010 535xit Nepune Blue, everything but night vision -gone but not forgotten (miss the wagon)
