Do you think they'll ever make the It card in metal?

That would be pretty exciting if they were to make the Discover It card out of metal or some relatively indestructible material.
Just saying it would be cool.

Not really. What about when you want to destroy it? With plastic you can just cut it up and you're done. I thought having the CSP being made out of metal was cool too but I think at this point I'd prefer it was plastic like the rest I think metal cards are just a gimmick. But I thought like you are at first about it, then it sets in and it's just a card.

I actually saw a pretty neat and different card the other day at work. A customer had a (I think) NFCU card that was mini-sized; one of those keychain sized cards. I was able to swipe it just fine but he did say that it's a pain at gas stations and and ATMs.

I still like the CSP in metal. It's not a make-or-break feature though.

Yeah it's just a problem if we have to get rid of it. I'm not sure what I will do then. Do you guys have any ideas?

Take a hammer to it and destroy the strip and the info. If you want to be even safer use a sledge hammer. Also more fun.

Use thermite! I use the stuff to destroy my old hard drives. Makes sure no one will get the info off them.
