Replacement of Magnetic Stripe Card to EMV Compliant Card



Dear valued clients,

Effective April 17, 2017, all CitySavings ATM cardholders may now go to any CitySavings branch to replace their magnetic stripe cards with EMV chip compliant cards. Processing of pin assignment will be done at the branch while card activation will be done within 48 hours or within two (2) banking days.

We strongly encourage all clients to have their existing non-EMV cards replaced on or before September 30, 2017.

Thank you.


Note: EMV stands for Europay, Mastercard, and Visa. Because of the enhanced security features and proven effectiveness in reducing card fraud, it became a global standard. The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) in its continuing effort to strengthen the electronic payment network, adopted the EMV implementation guidelines.
