I first caught consciousness of the new Visa black card when I was watching "Getting the Word Out," my church's daily program featuring Pastor RA Vernon preaching.
During one segment where they showed how easy it is to log on to WordCity.org to pay our tithes online, I noticed the person in the video had a black card that they were using to enter as a sample of a person giving online.
I'll bet you it was a Visa black card.
So when I saw that Visa black card was a new CJ.com advertiser -- I couldn't help but apply for the program.
And then I got in.
Why would anyone want a Visa black card?
That's what I asked myself, especially spying that hefty annual fee (heftier than my Amex annual fee) in light of this debt-filled economy?
Maybe it's for the 24-Hour Concierge Service
that's a big selling point of the Visa black card.
But more than likely, I believe it's the prestige a Visa black card offers to the limited "1% of U.S. Residents to ensure the highest caliber of personal service.".
I think a Visa black card just spells bragging rights or a "look at me" feel for people who have good enough credit to get approved.
The only time I could really see getting one is if I traveled quite a bit.
But maybe I need to read more about its benefits.
Anyway, if you're an affiliate marketer like me -- it could be worth your while to ptich them.
You'll get a hundo per approved Visa black card applicant.
