Ok, that is pretty cool.


I'm not sure if other credit card companies do this. It's the first time I've seen it. Discover lets you pick your credit card design from hundreds of choices. I picked this one cuz I like giraffes. I also picked another clear, funky dots pattern. You can pick as many different card designs as you want. Pretty cool if you ask me.

Brian wondered why a credit card company would spend so much money doing such a thing. To me, it was obvious. I'm sure Discover is looking for any reason they can give customers to pass up that Visa and Mastercard and use the Discover. I'm personally more likely to reach for this card now that it's got the positive connotation of my favorite animal. And since Discover gives a pretty good cashback bonus, there's no good reason not to.

i just cancelled my discover card (i only had it to pay down some balances using 0% interest), and they kept me on the phone for 15 minutes trying to convince me not to cancel the card. finally i had to say, listen, NO ONE takes your card! until they solve that problem, they can put all the safari animals they want on their cards and it won't get them nuttin'.

I tried to use it twice today. They only took it at one of the places (Toys R' Us).

I'm boycotting Toys R' Us because of their lame return policy...regardless of the variety of cards they take.

Toys R Us, ironically uses a Giraffe as their mascot...

And giraffes are tall, like Claudia...

The first seal has been broken!!!
