Re: Your most (and least) good looking cards?

I like my chase slate and my discover card, I went with the beach design for discover gives me something to shoot for :smileyhappy: Least favorite would have to be the look of my Paypal extras card I'd think.

One of the coolest looking cards to me out there is the Citi Diamond Pref card.  Really nice.  Shame it doesn't offer rewards.

Re: Your most (and least) good looking cards?

Personally, I think all cards that are all or mostly black are just plain ugly, like my previous BoA card. No creativity whatsoever.

I don't have this card, the cashback is only 1% for the first $1000 of spending per month. But, I do like the image:

Re: Your most (and least) good looking cards?

I was pleasantly suprised with the:

  • Chase Sapphire Preferred - Very cool card, although I thought from the pictures it would have a slightly beveled surface
  • Discover IT - the cover mimics a metallic handscraped surface with a cool orange border
  • Citi Simplicity - has a matte finish that makes it stand out a bit

I was very upset by the PenFed Platinum Rewards Visa Signature - the card design looks super cool online, but when I got it in the mail it just looks like cheap shiny plastic.

Chase Sapphire Preferred $17,800; Discover IT $15,000; PenFed Plat Rewards Signature $14,000; AMEX BCE $11,800; AMEX SPG $8,100; Citi Simplicity $10,000; Chase United MileagePlus Explorer $5,000; Chase Ink Classic $3,000; GE Lumber Liquidators $7000; GE Care Credit $2000

You know it doesn't bother me. I figure that cards are meant to not always look pristine. My debit card looks worse for the wear, the back hologram is almost completely rubbed off. :smileyvery-happy:

I think this is why I don't like the card as much because I was expecting something the same thing, lol.

BoA's non-black cards aren't really anything to write home about either, as far as I'm concerned. Just... meh.

 

And as far as black cards go, I'd have to say that for me this is a notable exception, maybe because of the thought that's behind it:

I totes forgot about this card. I guess because I haven't had it that long. But it is a nice looking card. The little diamonds do give it a little extra something.
