Ever disappointed with the physical look of a card?

I finally got my BankAmericard Privledges with Travel Rewards card and tore open the package, to find a card that looks nothing like the one pictures on their website. 

 

Instead, it looked exactly like their non-Privledges card except for the word "Privledges" and the chip.

 

Obviously I wanted the card, and I can't be upset with 2% everywhere, but I'll still be pulling out my Sapphire Preferred for the cool factor where I can.

 

What it should look like:

 

What it actually looks like:

Amex Accelerated Cash Rewards. BankAmericard Privileges with Travel Rewards. Amex Blue Cash Preferred. Chase Sapphire Preferred.
Now gardening until 2013. I assume gardening is a metaphor, like "book clubs" where all you do is drink wine.

lol that sucks.. The top pic does look way nicer than the other plain design. Have you tried calling them about it?

Definitely like the top card better! I switched my Signature cash rewards to the Platinum Plus version cash rewards, for reporting purposes, and it's exactly like the top card in your pics. Love the look with the black on front, and silver on back, wayy better than the bottom one
