Sounds awesome for the .01%

Meh, at least a plastic card (no matter the colour) is worthless if cancelled...

The card costs $100,000 for the first year -- $65,000 for the card itself with the remaining $45,000 as credit

Math is hard.

A single bank in a single nation is issuing a gold & diamond Visa card only to 100 very wealthy members at exorbitant rates.

Let me know when they have one with a button that dispenses cocaine.

There is something wrong, I think, with somebody who wouldn't be embarrassed to apply for that credit card, let alone present it at a restaurant, or anywhere else.

Just one. Because Rap artists would never steal material.

sounds tacky... and unwieldy. how is anyone supposed to use the card? or is it one of those cards with the chip where you just wave it in front of a device instead of sliding it.

The super wealthy don't even use credit cards. They all have "tabs." You think someone like, say, Donald Trump, carries credit cards?

How easy would it be to accidentally press out your name and account number by sitting on it in your wallet? Or at the very least dislodge the diamonds?

But more pressingly, how the fark many millionaires can there be in Kazakhstan?

Oh, whoever were the bureaucrats who could see which way the wind was blowing when the Soviet Union broke up.

I can't imagine anything much more gaudy than this.

The only "fancy" card I'd ever want is the Black Amex. Handled a few at work, and they're decently thick metal. Sharpen the edges and you've got a good weapon!

I hope they do realise the diamond encrustment will just harbour more crevices for such things as fecal matter and antibiotic resistant bacteria.

Why, though?

I feel the same way about this as I did when I saw a $250,000 chandelier in a Melrose Ave. design shop. It was pretty and all, but no more than any other beautiful chandelier that would cost about one percent of that. Do you invite guests in to your home and say "And now you're walking through the $1.5 million dollar entrance of my home and under my $250,000 chandelier, I hope you appreciate the light it sheds on my $75,000 Oriental rug?"

People who have this stuff already know what having lots of money is like; and people who don't will never know that good of quality anyway; so who exactly are these dildoes trying to impress? Themselves?

Too bad it's not available in the U.S. I can imagine Mitt Romney would love one of these. He could drive down to the poor areas where the 47% live and show them the card as an incentive to work harder and pay more taxes.

Election is over. Either let it go, or realize your life means nothing, and kill yourself.

Goddamn gentrification. First they kick all the working class buttplugs out of the neighbourhood, next thing you know they're replacing the ghetto with condos and filling it with uppity dildos with sparkles and 5 speed settings.

All I really need in a card are the following: airline mileage accrual, travel insurance (both health and auto), and a limit of at least 100,000 USD. Good customer service when the card is skimmed or stolen is desirable too.

Other than that, it's all pretty much the same, unless you're buying big ticket items like houses or cars, but you'd just use a bank transfer in most of those cases anyway.

Plastic is fine.

gold is a very weak metal, i think no way is the card solid gold. i think it contains a percentage of gold with other metal for a stronger alloy. this is why we see 14K, 24K etcetera. it is a percentage of gold content. but there are gold bars - so i am conflicted by my own statement. how i hate a lack of confidence.

/no gold card for me
//aluminum card, with high interest rate

Sheesus. That sounds like a bad joke, if it weren't true. I knew about Xe, but Academi just sounds like the stage name that a young Eastern European stripper might choose if she didn't speak much English.

Or a pretentious theatrical company that only does relevant "performance" art that consists of someone sitting on stage sipping mineral water in absolute silence.

Math is hard.


My first thought
Second thought is how the money could be used to help less fortunate
Last thought- are folks really this stupid and vain?

And them being this stupid and vain is the way they help the less fortunate.

Disco party planning? Sounds like you'll need armed contractors, SUVs, and helicopters.

It's okay, We're not Blackwater™
