My BoA and PRG are both chipped, and if I try to swipe them at a store that accepts Chipped cards (Walmart) the swipe is instantly denied.

Oh well, maybe I can use it as a place to store sock drawer cards.
And those two rewards cards that have a Mag Strip.


Time to upgrade those card with the EMV chips- Bye bye swipes hello inserts hahah

Sallie Mae finally arrived today, two weeks after I applied.

I wouldn't call it pretty, but it's not as ugly as it looked online.

A pretty good website, too. It has already updated my FICO from what Barclaycard saw when they pulled it. From 731 pre-pull to 723 post-pull.

I haven't yet tried to contact customer service, so I can't evaluate that.

Edit: As far as my Discover design, I can always try a few different designs out before I decide.

It would be weird if I got AA from Discover just for burdening them with excessive card printing and postage expense.
Love: IHG, Platinum, Sallie Mae, AA Plat, CSP
Like: Discover, ED, BCE, Hyatt, Arrival, Freedom
Might drop: BrooksBros, Prestige (Costco PC?)
Might add: Proper business card, CSR, Ritz, Delta Gold
Letting new accounts cool off since May
Really not sure what I'll add next or when

I'm going to go with the garnet design. It will add some nice color to my current humdrum blue cards.

If I later decide that I want my card to get a reaction, I can always switch it to the Humane Society design - and make an exaggerated show as I take it out of my fat cowhide wallet.
