Chase Sapphire Preferred

I just got the card in the mail, I thought it was supposed to be metal?

the card I got looks like a thicker plastic with a silver lining on the side.
It's nothing serious, I just wanted a metal card just to have it stand out Smiley Tongue or was this the "metal" people were talking about?

feels like plastic lol, what about this is metal xD I have to say, i was kinda disappointed. I thought I could have something that makes a metal sound when I drop it on the table or something haha

 

It's looks and feel exactly like my discover it card, except the raised name and numbers

 

Thanks alot Smiley Happy

Re: Chase Sapphire Preferred

It's a metal core coated in plastic so really, it's just a heavier card.

Re: Chase Sapphire Preferred

Interesting, I swipe mine about 75-100 times a month and I get comments on it almost every time.  I don't understand how you can't tell the difference between it and the IT card.  The IT card has to be one of the cheapest feeling of all the cards out there.

Re: Chase Sapphire Preferred

It will stand out dont you worry. I felt the same way when I got mine. Expectations were too high. I don't get a ton of comments but people do realize. Usually give the card a hmm look.

So, essentially a pseudo metal card.  My metal CSP version usually stays home and take its substitute plastic twin with me.  For me, it's just a pretty payment card.

Re: Chase Sapphire Preferred

I had a gas station clerk almost not take it!  Mostly people go "whoa that's a heavy card!" and I say "yeah, the more I spend on it the heavier it gets!"  

#1 feature is no "prompts" when you call in...str to a person.  Priceless!

Re: Chase Sapphire Preferred
