Re: Another Metal Card

[ Edited ]

How do you sign or does the card come pre-signed based on the sig used on the paper app? Any pictures of the United Club card?

 

EDIT: Just found out the card comes pre-signed via laser etching.

The united club card looks very similar to the CSP, only with the united and chase logos on the front. The question now is: for those who didnt upgrade the CO PP, will the new united PP card being sent out later this year be metal as well?

No no. I need to be more clear. This isnt just any aluminum, its special. It can buy you things that exist only in your wildest imagination. "But ill go into debt." Nonsense! Were in the 21st century people! Rub he card like a genie bottle and the magical al resets your current balance to $0.

I would pay any af for a card like that.

Re: Another Metal Card

Since I have my sights set on the CSP next year one thing that worries me about metal cards though is it true a lot of card readers have trouble reading the card? Would be great to have it as an everyday card but would be a hassle having to carry another card as a backup when the card reader can't take the CSP, then I miss out on some rewards by having to use another card.

 

Has anyone had trouble swiping metal cards at various places?

Never had real trouble. Sometimes the cashier has to swipe again but thats all. You can request the plastic card, no problem.

Re: Another Metal Card

I just made my metal card out of 26 gauge sheet metal and took my Orchard stripe and glued it. I used a magic marker to write my name on it too. :smileylol:
