I had a chance to go out to lunch today and when I pulled out my credit card to pay for my food, the cashier gave me a big smile and let out an "Awwwwwww!"
Why such a reaction from seeing a credit card? It's because I've customized mine with a picture of my two little girls dressed as Cinderella and Aurora at Disneyland. The comments that usually follow are "Are those your girls?" (Uh, yep!) and "I didn't know Wells Fargo does this! I should do it with my card!"
If you have a Wells Fargo credit or debit card and haven't customized your card, check out the Card Design Studio service. You can personalize your card by uploading your own photo of yourself, your pet, friends, car, favorite ice cream – or choose one from a gallery of photos. (BTW, Wells Fargo reserves the right to deny certain images). It's fun and easy and doesn't cost anything to make your card your own. Plus, it's a great conversation starter. Check out this demo to learn more.
I was curious what's on the other Student LoanDown bloggers' cards. Here's the scoop:
I have a picture of my cat Bill on my debit card. She passed away after I customized my card, but every time I pull it out to pay for something I get to think of her and say, "Bill's got this."
I've got a picture of my college football field on my debit card, a picture a friend of mine took of the football stadium lit up at night with the team on the 30-yard line. It's college football pride all the way. Go Card!
I have a picture of my son as an infant on my credit card. Of course I love to see his face when I use my card, but I am amazed by the reaction I get from cashiers and other customers in stores! I almost always get a lovely comment on how cute he is and how neat it is to have a personalized photo on what is usually just a piece of anonymous plastic. It always brings a smile to my face.
How about you? What would you put on YOUR card?
