credit card news
More than 49 million U.S. consumers use Bank of America, so there’s a lot of plastic in the economy.
How can your card stand out as a Bank of America customer? Here are some designs to make your wallet pop in all the right ways:
7. Honorary Mention: Hello Kitty
The design is discontinued since BofA’s contract with Sanrio ended, but it was still a great card. It’s a simple design, but just seeing it makes you want your eyes to sparkle as you gush over how “kawaii desu” it is.
6. U.S. Pride
Bank of America has a platoon of designs if you want to show off your support for the U.S. military and all that they do for our country. Land, sea and air forces are all featured, as well as a flag if you want to support all branches equally. We gathered all six designs to show them off.
5. Support Your Sport
You can also show off your sports fandom with your Bank of America card. Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, Bank of America shares the city with the NASCAR Hall of Fame and the Carolina Panthers; other sports organizations also reside in the city. If you want, you can have your BofA card reflect your love of stock car racing. You can also get a card for any of Major League Baseball’s 30 teams and a few NFL teams as well.
4. College Cards
While college support usually goes hand-in-hand with sports, we made this its own category. Alumni of certain schools can have their Bank of America card display their college pride, from the Arkansas Razorbacks to the University of Texas. These designs can feature logos and seals, but some show off architecture and sculptures.
3. Eyes of the Tiger
What these designs all have in common is passion. Sometimes, though, that passion isn’t just about being a fan. It can be a passion about making a difference, which is what this World Wide Fund for Nature theme is all about. Not only do you feel good about the everyday activism you’re engaging in, but you’re also raising awareness with each purchase. That’s definitely a win-win.
2. Credit for the Cure
Some charitable causes hit a lot closer to home. One in eight women is expected to develop some form of breast cancer in her lifetime. Her connection to you could be as a mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, niece, partner or friend. Surviving it is an incredible feat because enduring it is such an ordeal. By having your card affiliated with a group dedicated to ending breast cancer, you can help end it without spending a single day in med school.
1. Custom Designs
Sometimes, though, even the coolest design template just isn’t enough. Take, for instance, Ben Shoemate’s dilemma. As one of millions of Bank of America customers, his card looked exactly like thousands upon thousands of other BofA cards. So he tried a few things, including spray paint and iron-on transfer paper, usually used for T-shirts. Those attempts didn’t go well, but making a sticker set for his card did.
Shoemate turned his boring generic card into an incredible tribute to the TV show “Futurama.” Bender appears on the front, as well as a finance-themed alteration of the Internet meme “all your base are belong to us.” On the back, the magnetic strip is left uncovered, but the rest of the card is treated to the same overhaul. If you’re new to stickers, you can find all sorts of how-to guides over at Printaholic.com.
Customize Your Card Today
Whether you use one of BofA’s templates or go with a custom design, there’s no time like the present when it comes to revamping your card. And if you still don’t have a card with EMV-chip technology, an upgrade will enhance both your card’s appearance and its security.
