JCB USA is pulling out of the consumer credit card market in America. Current accounts will be active until April 30, 2018 and closed thereafter. JCB Standard, Mitsuwa, and Mitsuwa JCB cards issued within the United States are all discontinued. Cash back points are redeemable until May 31, 2018. Foreign (Japanese) JCB cards will still work through the Discover network.

Never knew they were in America to begin with. Talk about low profile!

I remember being told my Discover card was accepted anywhere in Japan where you saw the JCB logo, however literally no one accepted it there despite the logo. Discover's no international fee sounds great but is worthless since no one takes their card. As for this news, I never thought of nor do I remember being solicited to open a JCB credit card, low profile indeed.

JCB is (was) one of the few issuers in the USA that offer a Chip and PIN card, without a preference for Chip and Signature.

It was only offered in a few states: California; Connecticut; Hawaii; Illinois; Nevada; New Jersey; New York; Oregon; Washington.
