Months ago, my bank updated our debit cards with the new chip on them. Everything should be fine and dandy but this has caused more problems than good.

I can't even begin to tell you how many times I have been to Wal-Mart in the Heights and gone to pay for my merchandise and had my card declined over and over. The clerks get frustrated thinking I don't have enough funds to cover the cost when I actually do. They end up running the card about six times before it finally takes.

Running my card at a car wash isn't even an option. It will not work there.

Even if I put the chip part into the machine it can and will cause problems.

I have talked to the bank which hasn't been too helpful on the subject and lately I have been hearing that other people (ironically from the same bank) are having the same issues as I am.

I have had just about enough of this and am looking for another bank hoping that if I switch, the problem will fix itself.

Do you or someone you know have these issues, too?
