Signing the Back of Your Credit Card

Do You Sign the Back of Your Credit Card?

There's plenty of varied logic when it comes to signing the back of credit cards — some cardholders simply provide a signature, some sign but include a note to "See ID" and some write see ID in place of a signature. Your credit card agreement tells you that not singing the card is in violation of that agreement, and VISA's merchant guidelines say that a cardholder with see ID in place of a signature should be asked to sign her card on the spot.

Whatever signing (or not) practices we've adopted, we've made a reasoned choice based on what we believe to be most secure. What has been your card signing habit?
