Credit card redesigns may lead to variety of options for customers

Sunday, December 18, 2011

Chase Bank recently announced the redesign of its Visa credit cards - allowing more space on the front for the Chase logo. This new design is in trial mode currently but Visa has pans to roll out its new design to other financial institutions in order to increase the branding and logo visibility of the individual issuing banks.

All important information, including the credit card number, customer name and expiration dates are on the back of the card in the new Visa design. Some analysts say that this new design may dissuade some types of credit card fraud by making it more difficult to see the number when it is being swiped.

How much does the design of your credit card matter?

Even sports teams and other hobbies are often featured on cards. Often there are several designs for one to choose from. Again, these personal customizations may come with a customization fee so read the terms carefully.

Credit card customization has become more and more fluid. Many companies now allow its members to upload personal photos to a card. Choose something that will help you to meet your own spending goals.
