I have a separate non-credit card.  I don't actually use my credit card that much.  As long as I don't hit the magnetic stripe the magnetic stripe is still going to work.  As long as I don't hit the chip it should still work.  I haven't seen that many paywave stations in my area so finding one to test it might be hard.

I'm annoyed that I don't get an option to opt out or even change my limit.  How is that even legal?
