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


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.


Yes... the texture makes it different then most and it turned out to be shinier then I expected.  I don't like that the numbers tend to lose their gold flake after a few uses.  I also like that it doesn't show scratches like my other cards.

 

Also... I was disappointed that the CSP didn't have the beveled edge also.  Still, I like how heavy it feels.

My least favorite would have to be the Orchard Bank Gold Card.  They took a cheap looking sunset card and turned it onto something that looks right at home in an off the strip low rent casino.  I feel like I should be smoking hand rolled cigarettes, drinking well drinks, and playing penny slots while wearing leopard print pants and a cowboy hat when I use it.  If I ever have to pay rent on a half spot at a trailer park adjacent to an airport runway, I know which card to use.  It has all the glitz and glamour of gold paint on Styrofoam.

 

That's a quality description.

 

My best card is the BCE and I don't know why it's getting so much hate in this thread.  Did you guys ask for the ExpressPay chip to be put inside? It makes it look a lot cooler.

Hey dodfire

 

Not to thread highjack but what kind of limit did you get on the Prestige if you don't mind my asking?  Nice looking card BTW. :smileyhappy:

 Nope, no chip in mine. That probably would look pretty futuristic, but I don't think I've ever seen a single place that would accept ExpressPay around here... In any case, in a couple of months when mine gets completely scratched I'll give them a call to send a replacement with ExpressPay. Thanks for the idea!

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

recordaras, you took the words right out of my mouth. Absolutely in agreement. The Amex blue series completely disappoints in person but looks nice as a graphic on the website, and the Freedom disappoints on the website but the foil finish and green filler/edge looks very nice.
