Just got a new replacement Debit card from US Bank... but...

its totally blank on the front?

My name, business name, card number, exp and PIN are on the back... printed in the black ink that wears off after you use your card for awhile?

Apple card wannabe? or is this common now? or a bad card? google didnt seem to have the answer.

I think it's a trend. The last two VSA cards I got had the info on the back in slightly raised type. The one with dark grey type on a dark blue background is quite whimsical.

What's gonna happen when you're out in the countryside and need to stop for gasoline and they pull out one of these?

That's just a fast way to copy the numbers down. They could just write the numbers out by hand instead.

I think it's a trend.

My Prime card is the same, though the numbers are engraved on the back.

There's no real reason to have the information required for a transaction, on the front, or one the card at all where it could easily be purloined by some evil doer.

PIN is printed on the card?

no, just the 3 digit security code. PIN can be changed, no reason to print it.

Apple didn't start the trend. But they took the heat for it. And now it's becoming commonplace.
It's deja vu all over again.

Yeah, sorry, not the ATM machine PIN number ;)

the 3 digit code.

Originally I thought the 3 digit code was to hamper theft by not letting the person that saw your card to see the code on the back too. Of course, places like a restaurant, where you give them your card... wouldn't work.

That's another neat trick of Apple's (though it may not be limited to their card).

All that relevant info is in the app on your 'Phone.

You access it in the app via Touch or Face (I assume) ID.

Enter the information and Bob's your uncle.

You can scrape off the security code.

My citi card has my name on the front but everything else printed on the back, no raised letters. I'll see how long it lasts in my wallet
