But, probably because of this, I do think that the metal credit cards are a kind of an holy grail in the credit world. Here in the UK, for example, the only CC made out of metal are the Centurion and the Palladium. No surprise then that this sets the standard.
And regarding the problem you seem to be having, the solution is pretty easy: get a credit card holder. There's thousands of them out there. That's what I did quite a long time ago and I never looked back.
Agreed. It's prestigious because it's scarce (relatively at least).
