People with Visa-branded Macy's cards will receive replacement cards by the end of this year. Macy's is co-branding a new store card with American Express, the Associated Press reports. Citigroup, which issued the Visa-branded cards, will also issue the new cards. The switch won't cause any account changes for cardholders or to the loyalty rewards program.
