Amex magnetic strip

Postby Moneytalks » Wed Oct 10, 2012 8:16 pm

I know, it seems so stupid for me to care, but if the credit card forum doesn't, then who will?? haha.

I was looking at a friend's amex charge card and it had a holographic amex label with an orbital design. (Sorry no pic) Mine is just a solid, grey strip. Is there any difference?? My card is fairly new, got it in February of this year. Thanks for the help forum!!

Fast, I know the cent has a black strip, but if you know anything about this, I'm all ears, or eyes since it's online and I can't hear you :)
