Weird question for the AMEX Hilton HHonors cardholders

[ Edited ]

So.....is it blue or brown?

 

It looks blue on the application page, but it is brown on a bunch of the review sites. I know a few of you have gotten the card lately, so hopefully you can answer my silly question!

Re: Weird question for the AMEX Hilton HHonors cardholders

no. perfect question to answer. i have the brown design, and would receive brown design replacements if and when i request them, but new card holders will receive the grey-blue design i believe.

Actually, its not too bad. The card is light blue with a metallic flake, combined with the dark blue logo. It isn't that bad looking, but again it is just a credit card...haha

 

If you click on it in my signature you can see the card you will get, the photo amex provides is pretty accurate.
