Thunk! You slap your card down on the table, and every head turns. The waiter looks at you with new respect. You don't mind being the center of attention — your heavy credit card has done it again.

A lot of popular cards didn’t make the list above because they couldn’t make weight, including the famed Chase Sapphire Reserve®. Plastic credit cards didn’t stand a chance. The JP Morgan Reserve card, despite being the heaviest of them all, didn’t make the list because it’s invite only (and you need a whole lot of dough for an invite).
But you can see a full list of metal credit cards here. And if you’re in a ranking sort of mood, here’s a list of the heaviest:
