    If you lost or shredded yours, don't call Meta Bank. It's a waste of time. Call instead 800/240-8100. You'll get a person who will solve the problem.

    Check your credit card

    My card wouldn't work today when inserted into the chip reading terminal slot. Closer examination showed the "new" security chip had come off the card and was missing. I didn't realize those could come unglued. At some terminals, no chip also means swiping doesn't work either.
