For those into metal cards............

[ Edited ]

http://www.blackcard.com/

 

It used to be made out of carbon, but now the front is stainless steel, and the back is still carbon.

That really does seem to be the only good thing about the card though.

 

EDIT: Just to clarify, I am NOT recommending anyone to apply.

And for additional clarification..................

THE AF IS $495 (NOT WAIVED).

My friend has it.. like a 500 annual fee.. really not worth it if you ask me. However every time he whips it out, people do say "ohh the black card".. too bad it is probably the amex black they have heard about

I saw the splash ad in one of the websites I was perusing earlier today.   You can probably fry an egg on it...LOL   So it still has carbon components?  Looks like the benefits are pretty much the same (i.e. "ok" ) as before if I recall correctly.

Good looking card.  Does Barclays do the underwriting?

You really need attention if you pay that annual fee.... Poor attention starved people.

Yea same I saw the ad while browsing cnn's website.

 

For a $400+ AF card, the benefits do seem very lackluster.

And it's not even a visa signature card....?

Yes the card is underwritten by Barclays.

 

And to clarify: No, I'm not recommending anyone to actually apply for this card.

Doesn't seem to mention it's NPSL.

They do issue limits though. 

 

Before CARD act was implemented, There were people whom got approved for 500CL and then charged $495 AF on it, essentially leaving $5 as available credit.
