What picture do you want to appear on your credit card
July 28, 2009 12:48pm CST
I went to apply a new credit card from a local bank at my place. as usual, the bank officer gave me a form to me and asked for a copy of my identity card and an existing credit card. Then he explained some of the benefits about the card that I am going to apply. He said that it is not a visa nor master card, It is a UNIQUE card! LOL, so special. He even asked me to upload a photo to appear on the card. It is interesting. I am still thinking what picture to put. If I don't want to put my own picture, I can choose to put my kids picture. But he did tell me that this unique card must have 1 image on the card, not allow to leave it blank. He also suggested to put some grafic or cartoon picture which can be upload from the website of the bank. Have you apply a UNIQUE credit card before? Maybe you can share with me what picture do you ant to put and tell me why?

That's really neat! I've never owned a credit card with that feature before. I'm a photographer, so I'd probably put a photo I've taken on it. I'd probably do something like a flower or a sunset. Something pretty to look at! I definitely wouldn't want a picture of myself on there! I know a lot of people with those cards put pictures of their pets on there. My problem is I own so many pets, I couldn't decide which pet to put on my card!

At my bank, different designs were given to me to pick including one of wild life and sports team. I chose a hello kitty design because the check book that came with it was more unique. It's pretty fun but if you can upload your own picture, you should do one of family and friends. That will be the most unique.

Dear vingyan, A very thoughtful and wonderful topic of discussion. The Alliance Bank are very creative & innovative to come out this idea to enable their credit card holder a choice to get a unique and personalized credit card with the photo of their choice... It definitely have its pros & cons...but it all depends on the card holder , they have the choice... Even Pos Malaysia Berhad also doing the same promotion. We can personalized our stamps too with our choice photos...for eg. Let say a couple are getting married and they want to send out their invitation cards...they can give the disk with the downloaded picture (pre wedding photo) to be printed as the stamps to paste on its invitation envelopes....any photos for any memorable occasions.. or you just want to have fun with it...like for Christmas greetings! Good idea...huh.. To answer the question on this topic, I might chose HD family photo which has been taken at a holiday vacation, let says at Disneyland.. may be...have not finalised yet...lol Btw, do drop by my topic on "Greetings ~ 'Thank You' in your national language" because I have drop some comments for you there...tks! All the best & do keep in touch! Cheers
