Pretty credit cards

How pretty is your credit card Veeky Forums? What's the most aesthetic one?

I remember around 10 years ago my parents would give me old credit cards to play with and they were beautiful, with different designs like lions and stuff. At some point it obviously changed because now they all look bland as fuck (UK here).

Ugly as sin though.

I have the capital one quicksilver and it looks okay. I do remember way back when cards looked neat and interesting but It's not just credit cards that went down the shitter aesthetically--it's everything. Just look at IKEA's garbage (or most anywhere else) where it's mostly low-quality pressboard dunked in a vat of white paint then they try to sell it for $hundreds. Basically, credit cards being bland, usually a solid color and ugly, is a symptom of the abysmal design being imposed on people in this decade.

I don't know if I'm remembering wrong, but the cards I used to see 10 years ago were really really pretty. Hopefully another UK'er can confirm

Eeh.. does look a bit better IRL, all glittery and shit when you turn it in the light.

You used to be able to copy credit cards onto nicer looking ones, but now with the chip and RFID and all that shit that's no longer viable.

you can usually upload your own pic if you want for a small fee.

I have a blue cash everyday and I've been unemployed for 4 years. Credit rating first, unless you're talking about the various "black" cards which carry mutli-thousand dollar annual fees and have minimum spending requirements.

Had a college class with a grill who worked for AMEX in the call center building.

I asked her if she had ever seen or held a Centurion Card (they're metal and heavy) and she said that she actually had one.

She pulled it out of her purse and handed it around to everyone in the class.

Turns out AMEX gives all of their employees a blank one to show people and build HYPE for it.

I don't think the centurion perks are worthwhile over a plat, but there are a lot of benefits to some of the higher end cards.

@GoogleCat
what are they?

@Fuzzy_Logic
Mostly benefits for traveling. Dedicated concierge, automatic insurance on rentals, comfortable lounges at airports, etc. You also get far better customer support.

Centurion is mostly just dick waggling though, but I can totally see why someone would view the ~450 a year for a plat as a worthwhile expense. I've honestly considered it, but I stopped traveling for work recently, and even when I did, I didn't fly on American Airlines because they're a shitty fucking airline that I've had to sue twice because they jerked me around when employees stole product samples from my luggage.

@farquit
it goes from $450 to $2500 for plat to centurion? jesus christ. I guess I can see the benefits if you travel a lot.

sorry to hear about your shitty experiences.

The Iconomi 'Founder's Club' Debit card is going to be aesthetic as fuck. Can't wait for mine to come.

I'm not supposed to have it because I don't even have a bank account with Chase, let alone 10 million dollars period, but I got one from PC'ing my old JPMorgan Select that I got a few years ago from a leaked link

It's actually quite annoying to use, literally everyone comments on it since it's pure metal and no ones ever seen it before in my poorfag town

It's called the centurion.

It's really not all that special. If you really want to look at the perks, pull it up on wikipedia, then compare it to the amex platinum. The centurion is invite only, and generally requires you to move a couple hundred thousand a year through your card.

I will say this about them. There's no pending for approval. Swipe and before you can blink it's approved.
