What bank as the most visually appealing card in 2019?

Hey guys,

So I noticed a forum post from back in 2015 (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/187708) asking what the best looking bank card was. I'm just curious to see if if in 4 years, anything has changed since card designs have changed since then ect.

comment what you think :)

    I personally think Up has the best looking bank card, it was designed to be shown off, they even did a blog post about the design process for the card which I thought was cool (https://up.com.au/blog/designing-a-super-powered-welcome-pac...)

      I signed up for this card last week because i loved the design! It's so simple yet amazing!

        Definitely love the thought and aesthetic that has gone into it, whenever I take it out it usually gathers some interest from the cashier or from friends because it's quite different, I've been enjoying my overall banking experience with Up too :)

          I work at the airport so i see many different cards coming from around the globe. There is only one card that gets close to UP's card design and that's the Monzo debit card from the UK. Other than that, i haven't seen anything close.

        Fetishism of credit cards is how Billy McFarland started scamming status-conscious shmucks, and why Apple's card is considered 'news.'

        Your card's appearance doesn't matter. And with increasing mobile NFC tap-to-pay, it'll matter even less.

    Second the UP card, Portrait on the back to. Rather different.

    HSBC's cards look rather nice, especially the Everyday Global.

    Black Amex card. Doesn't matter what it looks like, the metal card is awesome.

    Amex platinum or amex black. Both are metal cards

    I would say the Up Debit card looks nice and minimalist. I did have the old CBA debit card and I find the newer design looks much better.

    Next question will be the numerology of your CVV.

    I used to have a Trump Credit Card back in the day when he was cool.

    Xinja Debit Card, bright pink

      Are they debit cards now? I was given a reloadable prepaid card.

        Prepaid Card which you can't be issued at the moment if you are a new customer as they're closed for new registrations while they are transitioning to it now being a bank.

    As much as I dislike Apple, it's gotta be the Apple Credit Card even though it isn't out any time soon. I remember back when I was in high school there was a period of time where you could get a debit card with your own custom image printed on it. I believe ANZ still does it, the rules are a little limiting but still is better than nothing, too bad I'm not with them.

    I glued yugioh cards to each side of my public transit card and trimmed the small amount of excess so that it looks like a yugioh card lol.

    All my cards are pleb cards, no fancy design or materials. Probably the Westpac altitude black is the head serf of the pleb cards, has a concierge function I've never tested and don't have any expectations of.

    Personally like the minimialist white on white look of the cba business credit card, very clean.

    Personally, ANZ Frequent Flyer Black card has the best design, look like metal. I got the Amex charge card, it’s metal one, but looks boring with one silver color.
