HSBC New Vertical Card

Looks like HSBC has gone vertical with their card now and ditched the lions on front. Still a Visa though unlike FD.

  • Hm..  The HSBC logo is on the front side twice and the name is very close to the chip. I don't really like it. Definitely not as nice as for example TSB. I'm wondering what the card for Advance account will look like, but I'm keeping the old one.

    I hate my FD master debit.  It doesn't even look like a bank card.  Agree TSB is better.

    Don't know what's happening with banks with redesigning there cards. 

    Old cards were better.  I remember my Midlands Auto cheq card.
  • I think many banks are trying to make their cards look simple and not cluttered, but in the process, many of them just look ugly and dull. I think portrait cards are also harder to make look simple but nice to look at so the switch to portrait cards for many isn't helping.

    In the process of adding my cards back to Apple Wallet, it has forced through the new Debit Card design, even though the physical card still has over 3 years left with the Lion design. 🤷🏻‍♂️
    The Credit Card Lion design is still intact, for now.

    The double logo is horrible. The lions are historic to the brand and have been through a few wars themselves. (The statutes)

    Most of HSBC elsewhere appears to still have the lion so perhaps the UK is a test market. Shame

    My HSBC Canada card has this new design (and looks a bit nicer in person than in the photo), I'd imagine it's being rolled out globally.

    I don't think they'd need a "test market" for a debit card design. While people do have opinions on how nice cards look, virtually no-one actually cares!

  • The Advance card is black.

    I don't care what the card looks like, just as long as it works.   B)

  • The advanced card is slightly better but design is wrong with two logos.
