Credit Cards Under Black Light

Postby benhollberg » Sun Jun 08, 2014 12:45 pm

I was at a bowling alley recently and pulled out my card, it was mostly dark but black lights were on. I noticed that by AMEX glowed under a black light. It was pretty cool looking. I went over directly under a black light and it glowed with AMEX in large letters and the centurion logo also glowed in between the M and E. I pulled out all my AMEX cards and they did this. Additionally, my Chase Sapphire Preferred also glowed an MC on the back of it.

I thought this was pretty neat and thought I would share. Next time you're around a black light pull out your cards and check them out.
