Great looking array of cards, not to mention those are probably the best six cards on the market.

So for the 'None of the above' votes, are there any designs I didn't specify that stand out?

Being able to focus my credit-related attention on something so trivial and inconsequential helps me stay in the garden. :)

Although I'm not neglecting the basics, and got my free TU report earlier today based on a Chase CLI request that was only partially granted ($600 to $2k instead of $3k). I got it just within the 60-day cutoff.

Forgot about the Chase Ink! That's a pretty nice looking card. Also, the Bank of America World Points is nice.

I know the Meryll card was mentioned, but there's also a silver variant of it which I think looks even nicer.

I think Chase Freedom is a little bland, but certainly not ugly. It's better than Sallie Mae. SPG, Southwest, and PRG are nice. As far as BofA, I think they are simply uninteresting.
