Anyone know how to get the default card images back after you create an image card?


I would just call up and ask for one. 


 

I did that, actually. Like the other poster, I thought that the image photo looked better on the computer than in real life. I asked them on THREE separate occassions to send me a default card instead of an image card, and each time a new image card arrived with the same photo. I finally gave up.

 


I wondered that too! LOL I'd think it would be simple considering the card I have only has 2 original designs...

What's amusing is that I no longer have a need for this card, as my credit profile has grown past it. But, instead of closing it, I decided to put my DD on as an AU and let her have it so that she can gain some experience with handling a credit card. When they sent the card with her name on it, it still had the custom photo on it of me riding my horse. Well, I wasn't sure how she'd feel about going around carrying a card with a picture of her mom on it, but then I thought that at this stage of the game maybe this wasn't such a bad thing -- as in, think twice about that purchase; mom's watching, LOL!!!

When cap1 PCd me to cash rewards, they overnighted me 3 cards (all of which were supposed to be the green cash rewards card, all of which were the regular ugly plat card). This resulted in a fraud alert on my account, and finally, 2 months after my PC, when my account was frozen for the 3rd fraud alert, and I had to call the exec office since my account was closed and no one ever told me about it and I needed my card, they sent me my green cash rewards card Smiley Very Happy

if you have had the opportunity to hold a holo print card in your hands at an angle, you would see why. it has a feel of prestige to it.
