I got my new SPG AmEx last week, and I noticed it has an "express pay" RFID chip. I keep it in my wallet, along with a proximity card that I use to open doors at the office. Unfortunately, the cards conflict, making it impossible for me to open doors while carrying my AmEx card. I called American Express to try to get a replacement card without an RFID chip. The first agent told me that they absolutely could send me a replacement card without an RFID chip, and she agreed to send it overnight so I wouldn't have to wait. I received it and it was identical in every way to my original card (same security code, too, which I thought was strange). Naturally, I called back. The second agent said it was impossible that I'd received an AmEx card with an RFID chip, since they'd phased out those RFID chips 6 months ago. She volunteered to send me a new one, though that clearly wasn't going to help. I would have escalated to her supervisor but I didn't have time. The third agent said it was impossible to get an SPG AmEx without an RFID chip and that there was nothing she could do. Does anyone else have experience with this? Which agent was right? Is my best bet to try my luck with a hammer and/or screwdriver to disable the chip? Thanks!
