    Anyone else depressed like me that their new CSPs are plastic and don't have the numbers on the back!?

    Given the choice, I'd prefer a regular plastic card.

    I use my credit cards as credit cards, not as kitchen utensils.

    Cool at first, the reactions from the weight of the metal CSP get old after awhile.

    "Mr./Ms. Cashier, I don't want to be an A-hole but, I REALLY don't want to discuss my credit card's uniqueness right now, just swipe that thing and give it back."

    No, but the plastic version makes a nice algae scraper for acrylic fish tanks. So when you switch over you're just trading off one type of functionality for another.

    (And believe it or not, I'm actually not kidding. I use one of those fake blue "credit cards" that Discover Card used to mail out to scrape algae off the sides of my acrylic 55 gallon tank. Acrylic scratches easily so the soft flexible plastic of those fako cards makes them the perfect tool for cleaning acrylic tanks!)

    This is the one thing that I wouldn't like about the Sapphire Preferred card. I want to buy something from you, not have a long, drawn out conversation.

    So usually its "Man this this is heavy where are the numbers"

    Occasionally its "We do imprint only"

    Once I got "Hell Yes, Chase Sapphire Preferred. Love that Credit Card" from the owner of my newly reopened pizza place. I liked that one ;)

    The metal card gets endless commentary from people who you hand it to. After the 30th time itgets old when you've been waiting in a line while Chatty Cathy Cashier discusses everything up to and including her hemorrhoids with every customer in front of you. Then when you get to the front instead of just swiping it, she shakes it up and down, looks at both sides and says "WOW THAT'S HEAVY", shakes it again, looks at both sides and looks to you for conformation of her observation.

    JUST FREAKIN SWIPE IT AND GIVE ME MY COFFEE!

    Well at least that is what I want to say.

    Update on this. MY CSP number got stolen over the weekend. So Chase nextdayed me a new CSP.

    Got a new one with the Chip and its still metal.

    Still not sure where my number got stolen from. Someone used it to get Gas and 5 Guys in Georgia and groceries in TN. If I had to guess I would think a skimmer in the Central Square T Stop, only because that place is so dodgy unless someone big's POS system got got recently.
