The Amex Zync is white with sparkles as well, people in the stores this is an exclusive card, I guess because is not very common.

Also my first Amex Card back in my home country was clear, just like the blue, but its actual name was "Cool Card" ,

Discover looks pretty cool too, I like that fact that is pink and has my initial in the background.

I thought the chase Sapphire was actual metal, the numbers aren't embossed on the card, just printed

I'm a grown ass man, but I like sparkly credit cards as wells. I would get Zync if it could be upgraded though.

2nd on the Zync. I get more comments on that than my green, just because it's a relatively newer and less saturated card. Always starts up a cool, albeit nerdy, conversation about us credit card nerds though ha.
Currently: American Express Blue Sky, American Express Zync, Chase Freedom Visa, Capital One Newcomers--->converted to Capital One Quicksilver Mastercard NO AF

Is the Zync worth it though? I'm somewhat against annual fees. Or any fees in general.
