Full marks to Capital One they have come up with some great credit card designs that really are very Credit Card Cool.

These designs are bound to impress your friends and at the very least put a smile on your face when you cough up the readies for that expensive purchase!

Here are some of the design choices you have when applying for your Capital One Platinum Mastercard.


My personal favourite is the St George’s flag - got to be patriotic during the football world cup! But the piglet and the monkey are equally great designs.

The card offers the following features:

  • 0% interest on balance transfers for 18 months (15.9% interest per annum variable thereafter). A handling fee of 2% of your balance transfer amount will be applied to your account - great 0% deal here but there's a sting in the tale with the 2% handling fee!
  • 15.9% APR variable.
  • Credit limit up to £25,000 - if you transfer a balance on application you could get a credit limit of £25,000 or up to £10,000 if you don't.
  • Free identity theft assistance - this is quite a useful feature" to prevent, spot and resolve identity theft".
  • Choice of great designs - we at Credit Card Cool agree that these designs are great, particularly those celebrating the FIFA World Cup.
Credit Card Cool award a *** ranking out of a potential ***** star ranking for the Capital One Credit Card.

Great card designs. I’m in Germany at the moment for the world cup so might have to sign up to one of these if England win.
