    ...but only for those in the US.
    What an accessory for a night on the town! What will they think of next?
    At least you can still earn Reward Points if you're enrolled in a Rewards Program.
    It looks a bit feminine to me, but maybe they'll get a few metrosexual males applying! :D

    Butterfly?

    Yeah a little metro-sexual methinks. Wouldn't stop me applying though if the rewards were good enough.

    Sometimes I'd prefer my credit cards to fold in half. Maybe this is the solution?

    Now you'll have to remove your 'butterfly' to be put through the x-ray. In the UK you probably will have to check it with your baggage.

    Methinks it is an untimely release. :D

    Westpac titanium has a regular size card plus a mini card (forget what special name they use) that is about 1/3 size.

    Yeah National do have the 1/3 sized card for one of their visa products (Visa Cash back perhaps?). I think the Amex card is different. From the photos. I get the perception that the card somehow folds in 2 (probably just below the strips).

    The National still offers a smaller card - the National Mini Visa.

    National Australia Bank - NAB Visa Mini

    You are also able to get accessories for it - lanyard, safety clip (karabiner), a mobile phone attachment (so that you can lose - or have both them stolen - at once!) and a cover. You'd think it was an Ipod!

    I can just see the fashionistas with their lanyards attached to their Ipod, Mini Visa, Mobile, keys, office security card, etc walking around - you'd get a pretty sore neck - but at least you'll look cool! :D

    Nope! Way too masculine looking for me to wear as a fashion accessory!
