I was reading an NBC LA news article this morning about a Philadelphia woman found dead in the trunk of her car. Anyway, below that article was a blurb about MasterCard's new logo. Seems that MasterCard is updating their logo this fall after 20 years of the current design. The interloping circles in the familiar red and yellow remain; however, "MasterCard" font is now all lowercase and will be below the interloping circles instead of inside them. This new logo will eventually make its way onto our cards as well. I like it enough, but I would prefer it if the "mastercard" font was in the circles instead of underneath the circles.
Here is an article about it as well as a video:http://www.theverge.com/2016/7/14/12193 ... o-redesign
Also this year, MasterCard, or mastercard, is introducing account numbers that will begin with the number 2 in addition to the number 5. It seems they are running out of BIN's beginning with 5 so they have found it necessary to use 2. What is weird is that mastercard only currently uses 5100-5599; I do not know why they do not use 5000-5999 before they do something crazy like using a 2. Visa has 4000-4999.....
I had not seen this information here or on MyF*co so I thought I would share if anybody was interested.
