Wherever your adventure and life take you, your Andrews Federal card will be there to help you pay for the necessities and the fun stuff too. Here's how it works:
- Chip and Signature versus Chip and PIN cards: Chip cards can be chip and signature, chip and PIN, or a combination of both.
- How to use your card in the U.S.: Simply use it as you normally would. Swipe your card, and sign for your purchase.
- How to use your card everywhere else: Depending on where you are, you’ll either use the magnetic strip or the integrated microchip. Some merchants may request a signature, while some merchants may request that you enter a PIN at the time of purchase. For example, purchasing a train ticket at an unattended electronic kiosk will require the use of a PIN, whereas at other merchant locations, a signature may be required for verification.
