Works first time every timr

I've been a UNFCU Visa Elite card holder for just over 5 years now, having travelled to over 25 countries, mostly small Pacific Island nations, and this card has not let me down. True chip and pin, and only swipe if a chip reader is not available. Every year I let the credit union know where I'll be visiting to avoid any issues.

Ridiculous

I actually spoke with a customer service representative named Lisa who advised me that since I live in Maryland and travel to Washington on a daily basis 12 miles away I need to call Lynn to customer service to let them know I am traveling to a different location to avoid having the card refused. Absolutely amazing! I then inquired if I go 12 miles in the other direction which would be Virginia do I also need to call to let them know I am traveling to Virginia her response was yes it would be a good idea. Obviously this is not a card you want to use if you commute more than 12 miles away from your residence into a different state or vicinity either that or their customer service staff is terribly misinformed. What makes it worse, they advertise this card as their premier card!
