My wife got the card when it first came out, it was a good conversation starter with people who swiped the card. I just recently got one as well... and I'm surprised that the card is now "not" as good as before. It is still made with 2 sides and have a better feel than the average credit card. But it is definitely lighter in weight and is now bendable. I guess it was too expensive to keep on making high quality cards? Oh well, I'm not too worried as this is not my primary card and will probably cancel after the bonus.
