Chip Card Technology

Introducing chip technology for Landmark's Visa® cards.

Get big protection in a tiny chip.

New, renewed or reissued Landmark Credit Union Visa® credit and debit cards now come with built-in chip technology. This gives you greater fraud protection when you use your card at a chip-activated terminal. Your new card is not only more secure—it's also easy to use. Here's what you can look forward to as a cardholder:

Enhanced Fraud Protection

When you use your card at a chip-activated terminal, the embedded chip generates a one-time use code. This code is virtually impossible to counterfeit and help reduce in-store fraud.

Easy to Use

Simply swipe your card like you do today. However, if a chip-activated terminal is available, insert your card instead and follow the prompts. See steps below.

Global Acceptance

More merchants are accepting chip transactions every day. Whether you check out using chip technology or swipe your card, you can pay wherever Visa® Credit Cards are accepted.

How do I use my chip card?

chip card instructions
  1. Insert the chip end of your card into the chip activated terminal with the chip facing up
  2. Keep your card in the terminal throughout the transaction and follow the prompts on screen
  3. Remove your card when prompted

Chip-activated terminals are coming to certain U.S. retailers this year – and more locations in the years to come. If a merchant is not yet chip-activated, you can still swipe your card to pay.
