#1: using UK chip and pin mastercard in USA

Posted on 2006-07-21 18:21:53 by sm_jamieson

If I take my chip and pin mastercard to USA and Canada, will I be able
to use a signature everywhere ?
I ask because I don't know my mastercard PIN and may not have time to
obtain it before I travel, but I need to use a credit card over there.
I only use the card for internet purchases in UK, and don't need to
know the PIN for that.
Thanks,
Simon.

The only thing that will want a PIN in the US/canada is an ATM if you want
to get cash out. They dont use C&amp;P there, its a Euro standard only.

Not my experience. I was asked for my PIN at a retail shop in
Malaysia. The shop used a chip-reader &amp; keypad style terminal at the
desk.

(I cannot use a PIN so I had to decline it, which created a lot of
delay. On my return I told the card issuer and they sent me a C&amp;sig
card.)

Not in North America for the time being, certainly. Central and South
America are moving or have moved to EMV, along with a lot of the rest
of the world. The Australian police have just been followed by the
House of Representatives in recommending implementation.

Quite possibly. It's amazing how backward the US banking industry
actually is.

Is it? They had real-time checks of cards and amounts to be debited a
decade before the UK.

What is their card fraud figure like compared to the UK?

At the pay-at-pump ones, yep. I found that 00000 sometimes works.

&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt;&gt; &gt; If I take my chip and pin mastercard to USA and Canada, will I
&gt;&gt; &gt; be &gt;&gt; &gt; able to use a signature everywhere ?
&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt;&gt; &gt; I ask because I don't know my mastercard PIN and may not have
&gt;&gt; &gt; time &gt;&gt; &gt; to obtain it before I travel, but I need to use a credit
&gt;&gt; &gt; card over &gt;&gt; &gt; there. I only use the card for internet purchases
&gt;&gt; &gt; in UK, and don't &gt;&gt; &gt; need to know the PIN for that.
&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt;&gt; &gt; Thanks,
&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt;&gt; &gt; Simon.
&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt;&gt; &gt;
&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt;&gt; The only thing that will want a PIN in the US/canada is an ATM
&gt;&gt; &gt; if you &gt;&gt; want to get cash out. They dont use C&amp;P there, its a Euro
&gt;&gt; &gt; standard &gt;&gt; only.
&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt;
&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; &lt;panto&gt;
&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; Oh no it isn't!
&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; &lt;/panto&gt;
&gt;&gt; &gt;
&gt;&gt; &gt; I stand corrected :-)
&gt;&gt; &gt;
&gt;&gt; &gt; ...but for the OP, the key point is, unless you want to take money
&gt;&gt; &gt; out at
&gt;&gt; an
&gt;&gt; &gt; ATM, no one will ask you to enter a PIN.
&gt;&gt; &gt;
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; But at some US gas (petrol) stations they will ask you to input your
&gt;&gt; zip (postal) code !!
&gt;
&gt; At the pay-at-pump ones, yep. I found that 00000 sometimes works.

I wonder if thats just for market research purposes? Best Buy amongst others
always used to ask that.

I would imagine it's a security measure and that '00000' would not work
for a credit card issued by a US bank.

Probably is.

If 00000 does not work, 20500 ( The White House) would be an easy one to
remember.
