What is a “signature based” transaction?
When using your check card to make a purchase, you usually have the option of making a “debit” transaction or a “credit” transaction. In order for the transaction to be a “signature-based” transaction, you must choose “credit” and sign for the purchase. In addition, most debit card transactions done by phone, mail, or internet are considered signature-based, even though you do not actually sign anything.
**When at the store if the machine automatically asks for your PIN after you swipe your card press cancel and the signature line will come up for you to sign and the transaction will be processed as a signature-based transaction. Many stores automatically ask for the PIN in attempt to force the purchaser to input their PIN so the transaction will be processed as a PIN or POS transaction. PIN or POS transactions will not earn reward points.**
