Am I the only one who read this as their future cards will be made with upcycled material from the ocean and not a new Keep It Blue credit card product?
That is how I understand it as well. Maybe take the eco friendly design of current card or something.
I don't know if this is a new product or just new materials for old accounts.
Assuming the latter...I want all of my cards replaced with this ASAP, and I want them expedited to me by overnight air and UPS special early delivery! I want to show everyone how low my carbon footprint is!
I have requested cards to be expedited before, and I took the somewhat vain step of getting my Platinum in metal (though I did want a new last 4, anyway, as my bill payment system was getting confused with multiple Amex cards with the same last 4). I'm not an environmental saint, but I would point out that for as long as your current old-tech plastic works, it's better to avoid getting one of these until you actually need a new physical card.
The chip wouldn't be recycled ocean plastic, so it technically shouldn't be there. Right? Actually it's just a prototype image, so i would assume the actual card would look slightly differnt.
Also, my undersating is that this is what the first card will look like. Simply o raise awareness. Then eventually all cards may be made of said material.
I too hope I can PC my BCE to this, very nice lookig card.
Curious to see the cards features and perks, if it is indeed a new stand alone card and not just a design option. Wonder if the "blue" aspect means it'll be within the same family as the bce/BCP & I could thus PC my BCE to it.
Now I guess this explains why my AmEx cards are so thin and flimsy and the first to physically crack. Thing is though, when you have to order a replacement card every few months, you conserve more plastic by making your card more durable in the long-run. Anyway, good on AmEx for their awareness on this serious issue.
I always get the "this card is heavy" whenever I use the CSP. Perhaps a previous post was correct, maybe they all should go to metal cards. After all, isn't metal cheaper to process now days compared to plastics? Though with the recent increase in Tariffs maybe not.
