Re: Coolest looking credit cards????

I like the ones that aren't too flashy, out of mine I like the Diamond Preferred. 

However JP morgan Palladium look pretty sweet in the youtube videos I've seen it in!

My ultimate credit wish,
a JP Morgan Palladium card

Re: Coolest looking credit cards????

Amex has some really nice designs - Zync is cool. Barclay's Rewards MC is really pretty with blue swirls. :smileyhappy:

 

I love my Navy cash rewards, but do wish they'd come up with a prettier card design. Chase Freedom looks cheap to me, but like the 5% at restaurants this quarter.

 

I'd love a cool-looking black card -- or Amex Plat (but not enought to pay the AF! :smileytongue:)

Re: Coolest looking credit cards????

Good luck! Based on the scores and CCs in your sig, you should be able to get Zync at the very least. Though, I do know Amex wouldn't approve me while I still had a BK on my CR. I believe some here have been approved.

I have no idea of my score because it was before I had found this forum and never purchased a score before. After the BK came off, my EX was around 650 from a CU pull (without any new, pos TLs). But with it, who knows. I apped in 6/10 and filed in 12/00, so it was about 9 yrs. But I didn't know how to rebuild at that point, so I had not established any pos TLs when I apped with them. That might had made a diff.

I lovem my new Zync. Next in my wallet will be the Chase Amazon Visa Rewards card. I got the black version and hope it looks as good as online once I get it in mail. I hate my Walmart Discover.

JP Morgan Palladium
Chase Sapphire
AmEx Blue Series
AmEx Black Card (made of metal like the Palladium but not as nice looking)
Barclay's Black Card (an AmEx knockoff made of carbon-carbon).

Now, none of those cards, beyind the AmEx Blue Cash Preferred, is one I'd care to have in my wallet - but they sure look cool. The Chase Freedom, Discover More, AmEx Fidelity, and Cap One Cash Rewards and Venture don't look fancy, but they work well.

The AmEx Green, Gold, and Platinum cards are "classic money" looking, and the Dawn of Discover is retro (although it's not identical to the original Discover card my father had back in the early 90s, which had a gradation of color from left-to-right, red-to-yellow in the "DISCOVER" logo, instead of the constant orange that's there now, and the Discover Sun logo was also made out of stacked horizontal lines, not one circle.)


Goal: 760 by End of Year
Current Score: 714 TU (2-3/12); 681 EQ (2-3/12); 714 EX (AmEx Pull: 2-7/12); 777 VantageScore (2-3/12)
AmEx BCE ($4k) - AmEx SPG ($7.5k) - Amex PRG (NPSL) - Citi Forward ($7.6k) - Discover IT ($3k) - BankAmericard Cash Rewards ($5k)
Chase Freedom ($1k) - Chase Amazon ($3k) - PayPal Extras ($6k) - Cap One Cash ($0.5k) - Amazon Store ($2.5k)
