As the one of the members said the visa looks better apparently, but the reason why I want the MC version is because my school doesn't accept visa. Also, Freedom MC is the only MC with good benefits.

Re: Freedom Visa to Mastercard

Finally got the Freedom MC in the mail today, so excited!!! Never listen to the CSR who tell you different things everytime.

Btw, from comparing VISA & MC side by side, I can tell the visa is slightly more shiny. The good thing is we get paypass for the MC version and not the visa.

I think the Freedom Visa Signature is the nicest looking. Red and gold on a blue card is an eyesore IMO. FWP.

One data point is never a trend no matter what the topic.  You can't assume that all people do something for a reason stated in a single post.  Acceptance and benefits are common reasons for preferring one over the other.
