Description: The following article mainly wants to talk about credit-card weights, we can see some examples and know some ways to weigh premium credit cards like the Chase Sapphire Reserve and ways to get chase reserve benefits.
Today we are talking about credit-card weights, first, if you pick a credit card based on how much of ways, that’s usually a bad idea, I wouldn’t advise the Chase Sapphire Reserve and some other premium credit cards, they weigh a bit more than normal cards and we’ve been getting a few questions about it.
I have some boring cards from different friends and in order to protect the privacy and obviously their credit card information, I use sticky notes to cover names and card numbers when necessary, I’m using four sheets of sticky notes, the big ones and in total weighs 2 grams.
We’re going to start off to discover the card, there are no details of front, it comes in at 5 grams, it feels like a normal credit card, it’s a bit more metallic, feeling more stiff than a normal card, so it feels more mellow, I’m not sure if you can hear it. When you hit it against this, but it feels a bit more firm than some other cards.
Next we have another Discover Card, it’s called the mixtape version, I believe you can order it online, it also comes in 5 grams, interestingly though, it feels a lot more plasticky compared to the prior discover card moving on to MX cards.
This is the Amex business platinum card which comes in at 7 grams, so with the piece of papers weighing 2 grams, it means it comes in a5 the same as typical cards, I don’t have a mech Centurion card to test, because no one pauses that hard, but from my understanding, that one weighs a bit more this one.
Most other Amex cards feel normal. There’s nothing crazy about it. Even though it’s a $450 annual fee card, the city prestige is another 450 dollar annual fee credit card. It comes in at 7 grams, the same as everything else, it feels a lot lighter though and it feels a lot more thin.
I think if you talk to anyone else who has this card, they’ll agree that appeals at a cheaper and I’m not sure how or why, but maybe it’s the material, it gets out of it, but there are a lot more flex to it and even that I miss business one, we have the freedom which most people have the same thing.
You have a baseline understanding of how much it weighs moving to the Chase Sapphire Preferred, so since it comes into 14 grams worth the paper, that means it’s 12 grams by itself, it feels a lot better than most cards, there’s no flex to it.
When you hit it, it’s a lot stiffer compared to even a Discover card which was a bit harder than other ones, that feels like the Chase Sapphire Reserve which most people are curious about, it also comes in at 12 grams, we have the Ritz Carlton card by JPMorgan Chase, it comes in at 30 grams with the paper, so that means it comes in at 28 grams by itself.
It’s a full piece of metal. There’s no flex in it at all, it’s a solid piece of metal, it’s not plastic covered in metal or metal in the middle and then plastic outside, it’s all metal, so if we move this and we literally toss it down here, it’s full metal, the Reserve feels a bit heavier.
It’s still a bit plasticky relative to the Ritz Card, look at a Discover Card, it’s very obvious plastic, we will take this to the absurd level, because this is a knife, this is a carrot, so obviously the knife can cut through a carrot, let’s see how the Discover card does works.
Next, let’s use the mixtape Discover Card, since we’re on discover surprisingly, it works, I didn’t expect it to give how Steph character, but it gets through, it’s not a clean cut, this is a real knife, those are still very normal cards, this has thought about cutting ability, so if you were stuck in the jiff and needed to cut carrots, this has a decent job.
We will try the line to see how that compares give it a different texture, they can’t fully take into the skin, so it doesn’t work out, it’s squeezing the juice out, I’m guessing the other cards are going to be the same.
