Click on the category you want...   ie... Rebuilding, credit cards, etc.   Then at the top of the page, above the green stickies, you will see a blue rectangle box that says "New Message".  Click that and you can start your own thread.

Re: Compliments on your credit card

How about a complaint about a credit card? My husband just got a new Chase card (Slate, I believe) and I swore it wasn't real. Meanwhile, AMEX offers come in the mail with dummy cards that have me fooled! Smiley Surprised

Amex Zync gets frequent compliments.  I think it's mostly halo effect now that the secret is out about the Black/Centurion card.  If it's an Amex in a color they've never seen before, people assume it must be exclusive.  But still, it is a nice looking card.  I like the subtle hologram and the centurion portrait remains one of the classiest design elements in the industry.

 

Chase Freedom gets a surprising amount of compliments, especially from the under-30 crowd.  The green edges and the metallic blue give it an edgy appeal.

 

And Chase Sapphire Preferred.  People do notice the weight.  And in my opinion, it's the best-looking card design in my wallet right now.  Magnetic stripe is tinted blue to harmonize with the colors of the card, fonts are all crisp and readable.  It's a nice little artifact.

 

None of these have ever gotten me laid, though.

 

My razor wit and playful flirtatious nature do that for me.  Smiley Wink

Back in my credit dark days they got me screwed though.

If some stares at my fugly RBFCU MC card, I smile to myself since it's PIF these days.  It don't get much better then that.

Zync absolutely.

 

On the flipside, my BCP draws laughs rather than compliments: looks like it's been to hell and back after using it as my default card for the last nine months, and it's devoloped a bend to it as well.  Cheap and flimsy are definitely appropos descriptions.

Zync/Unicorn!   As Tina Turner sang "simply the best"! 

 

Yes, it's a simple card

 

Yes, it's rewards were nothing to write home about.

 

Yes, ti was not really given the support it merited from AMEX.

 

And yet...

 

That mystique.  That dazzlingly elegant design, perhaps one of the most aesthetically perfect cards ever designed.  Certainly on a short list of top 5 cards of all time for design. 

EX = 828 EQ = 828 TU = 827 as of 02/2016

For where I was credit wise at the time, the rewards were brilliant.  Connect and Restaurant packs were fantastic for me then, though now I could likely do better if I weren't trying to keep clean for a mortgage.  I agree on it's being incredibly aesthetically pleasing.
