I like the new look. I don't care for non standard design cards like the old Slate; however, to Chase's credit they sent me a "normal" horizontal Slate card after I complained when they first changed to the vertical design.

Just goes to show that you can't make all of the people happy all of the time. I like the new design and others find it "cheap" looking.

The old design looked boring to me and odd so I'm completely with you.

I do not understand why they are giving free FICO score on this card but not the card I pay $95 a year for (CSP).
    Chase Sapphire Preferred Visa Signature: 11/2013, $15,000 CL
    Chase Freedom Visa: 11/2009, $4,700 CL
    U.S. Bank Cash+ Visa Signature: 11/2013, $11,200 CL

I agree Wiivile, that is why I think they will have to start including it in the near future.

AmEx ED: $4500 (02/15)
AmEx PRG: NPSL (02/15)
AmEx SPG: $2000 (06/15)
Capital One QS: $3250 (02/13)
Marriott: $5000 (01/16)
Ritz Carlton: $13,500 (09/15)
TCL: $34,750 (Some not shown above)

I wonder what made them change it back to a more "normal" looking design? Maybe Chase is getting tired of other credit card companies copying them so they went back to the basics...

They are probably looking to make the card more beneficial to people that would normally close their Slate card once the into 0% APR expires. American's have finally wised up and demand reward cards, the Slate is only good for balance transfers as it offers nothing in the way of rewards. Perhaps the FICO score will trickle down to their other cards. I felt the same way as you (sans annual fee) when Discover gave Discover IT cardholders their FICO score while those of us with Discover More cards (including the original 1986 members) had to wait.

CSP is a card that starts at 5k. It's a card that is hard to get if you are not already fiscally responsible and have good credit.

The 95 fee gets you rewards, benefits like 1:1 transfer major travel programs, no foreign transaction fees, etc

Slate may have a free fico score but they don't get any rewards and the free fico score - is suppose to replace the "pay it down" blueprint benefit..the only one slate has besides intro balance transfer fee waived..

The fico score and understanding how credit work is suppose to help those who have no credit or bad credit..what slate is for

I think you may be onto something there. People who are able to PIF don't need the card to begin with, and once the no-fee BT and 0% options expire, people with big balances remaining might do a BT elsewhere. Slate might generate very little revenue for Chase in its current form.
Warranties and sketchy merchants: Schwab Platinum
Price rewind: Costco
Travel insurance: Prestige, CSP
Perks: IHG, Hyatt
Rewards/Offers: Discover, Freedom, ED, BCE
Taxes/Misc: SPG

Limited value, might close: Arrival

Might add: First Tech, proper business card

Does anyone know by chance, which bureau the FICO score is using? Discover uses Transunion, so it'd be awesome to get an Experian FICO. I looked all over the site but could not find the specifics.

People from MyFico indicate that it will be an Experian score.
