What credit cards have colored edges?

Postby skyisblue » Tue Dec 21, 2010 10:01 am

Like the orange edge on the default Discover card, I find it really useful and easy to locate the card in my wallet. I can just look at the color of the edge, not flip it over, and know exactly which card I'm picking up. The trick is so simple and it really works on me :)

Just out of my curiosity, what other cards have colored edges (not white)? And do you feel like you use it more because you can find it more easily?

The edge of the Chase Sapphire card is dark blue or black. It would be nice if all cards used a distinctive color, but it doesn't really matter to me and would not cause me to choose one card over another.
American Express: Blue Cash Preferred (groceries, 6%; gas, department store, 3%); Gold Delta SkyMiles (Delta Air Lines, 2 miles/dollar, free checked bag).
US Bank: Cash+ (utilities, phone, internet, restaurant, 5%; drugstores, 2%).
FIA Card Services: Fidelity Amex (everything, 2%); Fidelity Visa (everything, 1.5%).
Chase: Freedom (rotating, 5%); Amazon (Amazon.com, 3%); PriorityClub (IHG hotels, 5 points/dollar); Sapphire (not in use).

*All cards are registered with PriorityClub IDine program for 8 points/dollar at participating restaurants.

It would be nice but I'm with you- a colored edge isn't going to get me to go with a given card.

Speaking of colors there are quite a few using blue but you don't see too many cards that use a lot of red in their design. Maybe that has something to do with the negative connations with the color red and debt.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.

Current Cards:
American Express: Blue Cash, Simply Cash Bank of America: WorldPoints Platinum Plus Chase: Amazon, British Airways, Cash Plus Rewards, Freedom, Ink Cash Citi: Thank You Premier, Dividend Platinum Select Discover: More
Primary Everyday Card: American Express Blue Cash
Primary Travel Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred

more credit cards should do this. another change i would like to see is not using the same cheap plastic to make credit cards. would it be too much to ask them to spend an extra penny using a better material then the same embossed plastic used in the 80s?
