I just want to comment on the actual look and feel of the new MasterCard. I never had the old prepaid Visa card. However, I must say this card looks a lot cheaper in its design and quality from what I can tell. It does not have any of the regular features that you would typically see with a debit card. I talking purely in terms of aesthetic features. There are no raised numbers etc.
Overall, looking at the current card, it looks like I now have a cheap prepaid card that I could have picked up from the post office and not one from a legitimate bank.
Is someone able to comment on whether this design will stay or will there be better iterations of the current MasterCard? I do hope that this is not the last version of the card as personally. I suggest you give the community a chance to vote and review the design and physical features of the next card if there is one?
