I received an Amazon/Chase VISA card recently with a chip on it.

While I know this is not guarantee of my credit card's security, it's a
step in the right direction.

However, I have yet to find an place where I can use it.

Terminals with chip reader hardware exist at Target, King Soopers and
many other places where I shop, but when I stick my card in, I get no
response and have to swipe.

Does anyone know anything about this?

Posting here because this list has security aware people who may be able
to share some backstory about the enabling of chip cards in 2015.
