Postby Robrus1 » Wed Oct 31, 2012 3:58 pm

Anyone see this? Bank Makes Gold Card With Real Gold | ABC News Blogs - Yahoo!

I thought it was pretty wild. I was also curious if anyone knows if/when Visa will have their Infinite card line in the U.S.?

You have to live in the region this banks in to be eligible. Otherwise, it might make sense to invest $100k ($60k for precious materials you can keep in a Safe Deposit Box, use the plastic version) and $40k as a withdraw-able deposit to get the card just for the $2k/year high end health insurance plan.
Sole Ownership Cards:
1st Financial Bank Platinum Student Visa, $500 CL, Open Since 3/2012
Citi Forward Student Visa, $6k CL, Open Since 10/2012
Costco TrueEarnings Amex, $6k CL, Backdates to 1/2012
SallieMae Rewards Barclay Mastercard, $2.5k CL, Open Since 4/2013
Jointly Owned Cards (co-owner with mom, not AU, used and paid only by me):
Chase Amazon Rewards Visa Signature, $2k CL, Open Since 8/2012
US Bank Cash+ Visa Signature, $13.5k CL, Open Since 10/2012
Authorized User (Parents Pay/Use)
Costco TrueEarnings Amex $29.4k CL, AU since 11/2012

That and I have not heard of this bank before. Seems perfect for the Russian market. Those guys are 'nuts'; in a good way LOL

It's not for the Russian market though. The article says it is only available for residents in Kazakhstan who have an account at Sberbank-Kazakhstan.

Haha but damn, this card looks crazy! The design looks pretty cool too. Would suck to be robbed...

I saw it, was impressed, but it just doesn't have the same prestige as the Centurion or the card from Dubai First in my opinion...
