Description: The article is about www chase com creditcards. The content mainly focuses on weighing premium credit cards like the Chase Sapphire Reserve and Ritz-Carlton. The author will give some advise about some other premium credit cards and share another Discover Card called the mixtape version.
It’s Sebastian from SMB and today we are talking about credit-card weights, so first off if you pick a credit card based on how much of ways, that’s usually a bad idea, I wouldn’t advise it well about 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.
So we figured we dived in in order to do this video, I’m boring cards from different friends and in order to protect the privacy and obviously their credit card information, I’m going to 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, let’s hit started, so we’re going to start off with the discover it card, there are no details of front, so nothing to cover, it comes in at 5 grams, it feels like a normal credit card, it’s a bit more metallic feeling though and feels more stiff than a normal card.
So it feels more mellow, I’m not sure if you can hear, it still feels plasticky 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 than this one and most other Amex cards feel normal.
There’s nothing crazy about it even though it’s a $450 annual fee card, so the city prestige is another 450 dollar annual fee credit card, it comes in at 7 grams, so 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’s get out of, but there’s a lot more flex to it and even that I miss business one.
We have the freedom which most people probably already have the same thing, five grams, nothing crazy or unique, you know what it is, but now 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 and there’s no flex to it and then even when you hit it, it’s a lot stiffer compared to even a Discover card which was a bit harder than the other ones that feel like the Chase Sapphire Reserve which most people are probably curious about also comes in at 12 grams sounds about the same.
It feels a bit lighter though, then the preferred for some reason, but it might be going crazy and finally 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 literally 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 like here, it’s full metal, the Reserve feels a bit heavier, but it’s still a bit plasticky relative to the Ritz Card.
Looking at a Discover Card, it’s very obviously plastic, so we’re going to 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 works, it works, it’s not a clean cut, but it still works, it goes through.
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 with a real knife, so this is a real knife which can cut versus using a Discover card, using the Chase Sapphire Preferred more communal cut.
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, I’m expecting to the reserve to be the same as the preferred and a carrot through flew across my table about the same as the preferred clean-ish cuts, not surprising given that it feels about the same and has a similar weighting.
Finally, we’re going to use the Ritz Card, I’m impressed that it’s cutting ability, it sounds like a knife too, I think if you can sharpen the edge considering how it’s fully metal, you could use it as a makeshift knife, you might not want to bring it on a plane.
If you do that for some reason going camping and setting to bring this card with you, it’s a solid cutting tool, we’re going to try the line to see how that compares, give it a different texture, let’s start backwards to use the roots again.
