A Biodegradable Credit Card?

What will they think of next? I just stumbled across the Biodegradable Discover More Card [1]. Really? A biodegradable credit card?

I had no idea that simple little credit cards created so much waste. Here’s how Discover is pitching the card:

New biodegradable card plastic breaks down 99% within five years in landfill conditions and leaves no toxic effects behind.

Of course, they also mention the 1% unlimited Cash back Bonus. (After your total annual purchases exceed $3,000; other purchases that are part of your first $3,000 earn .25%.)

It would be interesting to see their research on how many people get the card just because it’s biodegradable…


WT Direct has extended the $25 to $150 Sign up Bonus [2] until August 15, 2009.



By the Numbers

And More!
