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.
Very useful: SchwabPlat, CSP, IHG, Costco (was AA Plat), Freedom, SPG
Somewhat useful: Discover, ED (was EDP), BCE, Hyatt, Arrival
May close or PC: Prestige, BrooksBros

Might add: Proper business card, CSR, Ritz, Delta Gold, First Tech

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.
