Reading through the comments below, I see a lot of people worrying about this. Can I say, as someone from the "rest of the world" (not America), i.e. a place that's had chip based credit cards for several years, they are far more secure and far less likely to be stolen than magnetic strips. Card skimmers still claim many victims, each day off mag strips, but essentially 0 people get skimmed of a chip. Firstly, you need to be basically on top of the card - the card does not have active power, so the range is very small. Secondly, you can only purchase up to $99 without a PIN and thirdly, the code changes after every use - so even if someone did skim your card with an RFID scanner, they could only use it once - and only for $99. Unlike a mag stipe credit card, which can be used with the same info, over and over.
Since moving to a chip only system, credit card theft of this kind (not including online sales at places that don't require a CCV) has dropped to basically zero. I am sure someone will eventually get good at ripping them off again, but at the moment, card fraud is very low.
