I have a debit card from my credit union. There isn’t much to it, it’s blue, and has my name. Period. I have a card on my PP account, it’s grey and has my name. Wheeeee, right? (note my hint of sarcasm) I know that some banks offer a few different choices for cards, and that’s cool…
BUT I WANT SOMETHING THAT’S ME.
ME ME ME

Before I tell you about all the great choices, here’s WHY you should choose Card.com

You can choose from the following categories:
Animals, Art & Culture, Causes, Cityscapes, Comics, Fashion, Flags, Flowers, Food & Drink, Gothic, Hipster, Nature, School, Seasonal, Sports, Symbols, Tattoos and TV
I have SO many favorites, I really need a card for each day of the month... You can see more of my faves at the end of the post.
I will say that seeing 6-10 pages in some categories, I was a little saddened that there were only 3 cards in the ‘flowers’ category, however, they have sunflowers, so they’re forgiven!!!
(ETA: There are MORE flowers if you search for "plants" or look in the "nature" category. I have let them know about it and hope to see that fixed!)
I do have a suggestion for them, that I’d LOVE to see them implement. I would love to be able to narrow down the categories. For example, when you look at the TV section, they have lots from the show Numbers. Instead of going through all 9 pages, it would be easier for me if I could see the list of shows and go from there. (There are a lot from the show Numbers.) Or when looking at sports, being able to narrow it down by a specific sport.
I do have another suggestion, but it’s more of a ‘wish’ than anything, and actually, would be willing to spend a little for to do… being able to use your own photo for a card. Maybe one day… I’d LOVE to have a family photo, or a pic of my kids adorning my debit card!
There are literally so many, I spent an hour trying to choose mine. Don't worry, that's a good thing. That means there is SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!! (yes, even my nearly 60yr old husband who doesn't watch sports... I might choose Care Bears for him!!! LOL *j/k honey!*)
