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

IMO the silver mastercard logo, and to a lesser extent EMV chips, make cards look cooler, more futuristic.

Yeah, I always brag that I have a black amex card, but the USAA design is not fooling anyone.  They could really do something neat with this; maybe a slick carbon fiber background with a monochrome amex logo or something...

 

 

 


I would take a card made of actual carbon fiber, over stainless steel or palladium, any day. Not sure if that would be feasible though.

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

The small business I work for just got a new Chase Ink card today...I got a good look at it while my boss and I were calling to activate it and add myself and a couple others as AU's. It's basic but not bad looking.

 

At least we are able to get 60,000 bonus UR points after $5K spend...yay.

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

I really like the chocolate-brown American Express Card from Harrods - The gold accents look very rich.

 

Too bad it's not available in the USA

You know, a card design contest would be a great promotion.  Get a mid-level card issuer to come up with a new rewards card, and set up a contest where you have to app and be approved to enter, but then you get to submit a design for the card.  Winner gets a 100k miles bonus or something.

 

Would you app for that?  Hello myfico marketing peeps, did you catch that?


That's a neat idea - I personally wouldn't be the target audience, as my graphic design skills are only surpassed by my classic ballet skills (i.e. I can't even draw a non-crooked smiley face), but something really awesome could come out of it, considering how many talented people there are out there.
