Capital One Venture: Ugly duckling

Just got my Venture Card in the mail...I am totally unimpressed with how this card looks! Yuck! Double Yuck!  For some reason I actually thought it would be metallic like the CSP card? I know this is totally subjective, but I am not sure of its looks? 

 

What card is ugly to you guys?

Did you get the Blue one or the "jackpot" Gold one? 

 

Blue one looks fine, and if you have the jackpot edition, you'll always have a signal flare if you need one....

I think the blue one with the chip looks nice actually.

Re: Capital One Venture: Ugly duckling

Like I said, I was expecting something more sturdy and maybe more credit card looking?  

 

As for scores, I only had 2 small collections totallying $556, and 82% utilization.  I PFD'd the collections and paid down my cards to 2% utilization and it was GAME: SET: MATCH!!!!  If you are looking to do likewise, hangout in the REBUILDING CREDIT thread.

You have a ten thousand dollar limit, that makes the card beautiful.

Me too! I don't have the card but the stock photos look pretty *_* (of course I am the same person who doesn't think the Sallie Mae is ugly..)

The Sallie Mae isnt ugly, just bland, looks like a Sears credit card  from the 80s.
