If you really want a metal credit card, I suggest getting one that is at least useful.  Perhaps this one?

Ah enharu, I was looking at that just last night...and I was comparing the benfits, wow it's total crap.

The card looks cool, however like enharu said, that's about it.

No Visa Signature benefits.

No competitive rewards.

 

Sounds like a poor man's centurion card.

 

Heck, if I am going to spend that kind of money on a premium card, then I'd go with the AMEX platinum in a heartbeat. Plus cheaper AF and better rewards structure.


+1, although it's more of a card targeted at wannabes than a poor man's centurion. That's what the CSP is.

I just think the "Black Card" is ghetto.

 

No Signature benefits, high annual fee, APR, FTFs, etc. There are no benefits that merit the annual fee IMHO.
