My debit card is about as ugly a card as anybody could ask for. It's the color of a pale green mold, with darker green stripes running horizontally. UGLY.



Which bank is that from? Sounds pretty bad!

Crockett National Bank. I tried to find an image, but there wasn't one. That probably attests to how ugly it is!

Re: Your best (and worst) looking cards?

I hate the look of my Citigold debit card. Translucent orange just doesn't do it for me.

Re: Your best (and worst) looking cards?

[ Edited ]

For the most part, I like the design of nearly all my cards as pictured below.  Missing from the line up are my Wells Fargo Platinum Visa, my 1st Command Platinum Visa, and my credit union debit card.  All of them are very nondescript.  The WF card is a custom design of black and grey and has a sort of simple elegance about it, but it's pretty boring. 

 

If I had to choose favourites, it would be the JP Morgan Select Visa (the brown is a nice touch, like that Harrods card) , and the Merrill Lynch Plus Platinum Visa (LOVE the silver bull on the black background) as 2 that are right up there, neck and neck.  But....for pure beauty and elegance (and now rarity), nothing surpasses that white AMEX Zync/Unicorn! ! !

 

 

Diners Club Premier MasterCard $50K / AMEX Gold NPSL / AMEX Zync NPSL / AMEX Blue Cash Preferred $14K / Bank of America Cash Rewards Signature Visa $15K / Merrill Lynch Plus Signature Visa $15K / Wells Fargo Propel 365 $15K / Chase Sapphire Preferred Signature Visa $10K / J P Morgan Select Signature Visa $10K / Chase Slate Visa $6K / CITI Diamond Preferred MasterCard $13.2K / Discover IT $10.5K / IberiaBank Select Visa $8K / 1st Command Bank Platinum Visa $7.5K // Home Depot $9.7K / Lowes $10K

EX = 818 EQ = 822 TU = 830 - 01/2015

Re: Your best (and worst) looking cards?

Not that great but just recently my sister saw one in person and it only took one look to make it her #1 card to apply for as soon as she can.

Re: Your best (and worst) looking cards?

My best looking card is my Chase Amazon Visa in black and my worst card is the Orchard Bank card with the American flag (so embarrassing to pull out) but I just canceled it.
