Presidential Visa® Debit Cards now come with built-in chip technology. These new cards are not only more secure – they’re also easy to use.

Easy to use. Simply insert your card in a chip-activated terminal, follow the prompts and remove your card when the transaction is complete. 

Accepted worldwide. More places than ever now accept chip cards.  Whether you check out using chip technology or swipe your card, you can pay with confidence worldwide.
