These are my cards. I'm still waiting for the Capital One replacement as having never used that card I didn't even know where it was anymore :P (I'm going to keep it for a bit more just because it is the oldest one) and the Barclaycard in the photo is the basic, I should receive the Platinum in the next few days as I've just updated a week ago or so.

Nice line up Dr. Mark. On the Barclay card it looks like an image of sound near the Visa, what is that?


Also I'm curious why you have so many Amex charge cards do you make use of all of them? They look nice with that EMV chip!

Well, actually the charge cards are only the Green and the Gold. Since I received the Gold I haven't used the Green at all and I was just thinking about dropping it. For its nature of being a charge card I don't think it would make that much difference to keep it even without using it in terms of credit score. The other 2 Amex are CC. The sound symbol you can see (all of them have it, but they are not visible in the image) is the CONTACTLESS symbol. It means that for any transaction of less than 20£ I don't need to insert my card in the card machine and I don't need to insert my pin either. I just need to put the card close to the card machine (without even touching it, hence Contactless) and the payment will go through. Pretty nice uh? :)

hey Dr.Mark i think i have an idea on how you can have a CSP(that doesn't work of course)..have someone add you as an authorized user. Before they can give it to you they'll have to cancel it- but the card wont work anymore. so youll just have a card under your name that does work..

Yeah, that's an idea. :) I guess what I could do instead is asking the company I work for to transfer me to the States and apply for real. I might do that one day, I never really loved it here anyway. It has always been a first step with New York in my mind.

Well, actually I've been there quite a few times. I work for a big Hedge Fund company and I have to travel to our New York office quite often. I just love it there man! You should definitely check it out!

Nice! Well then there is your shot on that CSP!

New York is expensive if you choose the good areas- what other places in the U.S do you want to visit?
