Just out of curiosity, does any bank still issue any Visa or MasterCard with the dove hologram (Visa) or the world hologram (MasterCard) on the front?
My paypal business debit card has the Mastercard logo and hologram on it.
none of my cards have holograms ON THE FRONT. They're all in the back.
Old and busted: hologram on the front
New hotness: hologram on the magnetic stripe
I remember the first card I got with the hologram on the magnetic stripe was my Amex Gold back in 2006. Currently, my Discover has the hologram on the magnetic stripe. For Wells Fargo, both my Visa and Visa Debit have the eagle hologram on the back (in different places though).
I have one very old debit mastercard in my sock drawer for a small-town bank checking account that still has the hologram on the front.
All of my cards (debit and credit) have the holograms on the back now.
I think it gives it a much cleaner look, personally.
I do have some old cards from back in the day and almost all of those had holograms in the front.
My Chase Sapphire Visa has the bird hologram on the back.
My B of A Upromise MC has the world map hologram on the back.
My Costco Amex has a horrible, disturbing image on the back: my face.
My fairly new CU MC Debit card, has the hologram on the front, as does my 4 year old FSA MC debit card.
The rest, have it on the back.
My old CU Visa has the dove on the front... but that card is very, very old. I expect when I get my new card in August that it will be in the back.
