Yes, the Citi Double Cash Card is contactless. Citibank began issuing contactless cards to new and existing cardholders a while back. Using Citi Double Cash Card for contactless payments eliminates the need to swipe or insert the card into the payment reader. But Citi Double Cash Card still comes with both an EMV chip and the magnetic stripe, so it can be used for standard credit card payments, too.
To tell if a payment reader will accept contactless cards, look for the contactless indicator somewhere on the reader. You should see a triangle-shaped set of four curved lines increasing in height, moving left to right. You will also find this symbol on the front of all Citi Double Cash Cards and other Citi credit cards that have the contactless chip technology.
What you should know about the Citi Double Cash Card contactless feature:
- Each transaction generates a unique code every time you use the Citi Double Cash Card for a contactless payment. This protects your card information and reduces the risk of fraudulent transactions.
- If you accidentally tap the card twice, you’ll only be charged once for that purchase.
- Contactless transactions are faster than chip card payments (and just as secure). They actually save time on both sides of the checkout counter, since the card never leaves your hand.
Whether you use the Citi Double Cash Card for contactless purchases or you choose to swipe or insert the card at the payment reader, you’re still covered by Citi’s account protection benefits, such as $0 liability for unauthorized charges.
