Hmmmmmm looks like everyone is getting into the metal credit card bandwagon. I think AmEx needs to up it's ante and come up with a new card....

It is made of a metal, with the number/name done with laser rather than a typical stamp.

I have had the Citi Gold debit card, which used to be a clearish orange color. Quite the nice card to look at, but Citi Gold / PWM has driven me away a bit during the economic slump.

Fast, if you use the black cent. at SELF CHECK OUT, how are you supposed to show off??? Sigh... haha, jk, your card, your choice.

Yep. I am talking about the Preferred. Don't think regular is metal. If you have plastic Preferred, my guess is that you can get a new metal one if you want.

So the Saks Fifth Ave World Elite Mastercard is great looking. It's backed by HSBC, and some people have had problems.
6% on Saks purchases and 1% on everything else. No annual fee.

I also think Barclay's Apple/iTunes card are both great looking. Too bad the benefits are not worth mentioning and therefore the cards are not worth getting.
