RFID American Express Blue Card?


Saw this on the cover of an American Express mailing yesterday. The mailing was about some sweepstakes that would lead to "swipeshock", but doesn't that look like an RFID tag on the card? How come I haven't gotten it yet? All the images of the card on the AMEX website reflect the new look.

UPDATE 6:22 PM EST: Called customer service to get the new card. Apparently, all new cards issued since June have RFID instead of smart card chips.
