Good for you! Me too I'm still working on mine, I'll have it by the end of this month. Hard to turn down the equivalent of 500 bucks!

I have the CSP and didn't even realize it would be made out of metal until I took it out of the envelope.

It fits in all the readers fine, but one caveat is that the polish that coats the metal will scratch fairly easily. After 6 months my card has plenty of "battle scars", lol.

I received two cards after I told Chase to expedite mine. Guess I'll have a back up when the cards gets beat to hell. Downside is I have to make sure I don't loose the spare.

That's interesting your metal card gets all scratched up. The cent seems to stay looking nice and remains scratch free despite how much I use it. The only issue and weak link is the magnetic stripe.

CSP is metal but has a plastic coating. Can't speak to the Marriott card, I still have the old all plastic one.

I have the Marriott card and don't know if it has a plastic coating on the metal or not. Somebody on here says that it is made of stainless steel though, like the CSP I presume. To be honest I have never seen the CSP in person so I have nothing to compare the Marriott card to.
