Went to Kroger on 03/12/16 and tried to use my debit card as credit. I was told that I had to use a pin number with a chip card. The cashier told me that all stores were going to this practice and the manger said the debit card needed a pin number or it would not work. I do not believe this to be accurate. On the same day I went to several stores and used my debit chip card as credit. Using a pin number is a very poor practice that could cause identity theft and or use of your debit card by unauthorized parties. I refuse to shop at Krogers until this issue is fixed. I believe it can be and sincerely hope it is.
