I don't personally care, but when I first got a metal card, cashiers were constantly going "oooo" or "fancy" or commenting on how heavy it was compared to plastic cards. These days most places I can just tap it on a reader, which seems to process faster than inserting into chip readers.OK... why on earth are they making these out of metals?
Edit: So a simple Google search turned up the following...
Yes, metal credit cards are usually seen as a status symbol because metal card offers are typically geared toward high-spenders with good or excellent credit. Some of the most exclusive credit cards are made of metal, and the weighty feel of the cards certainly speaks to luxury. Metal credit cards have a premium feel.Aug 25, 2023
