Re: NFCU Card design

Which card?


While beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I would not say the NFCU cards are ugly but they certainly aren't a Ms. Venezuela either. I am all about card aesthetics, but what I find appealing might not jive with what others like. I personally HATE this trend of un-embossed cards; vertical cards etc but alot of other people love them (I will admit Chase-and ONLY Chase-makes a compelling argument for alternative card designs). 


The one thing all NFCU cards have in common though is that they are issued by NFCU and they have that sexy logo on them. I am sure a lot of people that just found out today that they are no longer able to join NFCU through the NLUS San Diego Council would kill to have one of our "ugly" NFCU cards. I am not picking on you for caring about card design,,,,but at the end of the day we are the lucky ones that have one of these babies. Just keeping things in perspective.

I feel the same about DCU's offerings, as well as the BBR from Bank of America. Ugly, but effective.

I think their Go Rewards look the best too. It is the right shades of blue. The cash rewards on the other hand Smiley Sad

Curious as to how the NFCU Amex card will look when they release it this fall.
