Zodiac credit cards
How credit card marketers might pitch astrological cards
The Internet is buzzing with word of a new Zodiac calendar -- even including a nearly unpronouncable new Zodiac sign.
But people have been obsessed with horoscopes and astrology for years. So why has the credit card industry thus far missed out on one of mankind's oldest known loyalty groups, the 12 signs of the zodiac? After all, isn't "What's your sign?" the second oldest pickup line after, "Would you like a bite of apple, Eve?"
To help rectify this glaring oversight, CreditCards.com presents a few scenarios by which some savvy financial institution might one day offer you a card specifically tailored to your astrological sign.
For fun, click on your Zodiac sign below to read about how a credit card might one day be tailored to your unique astrological make-up. Remember, this is imaginary, not real, so don't try to apply for it, no matter what the stars say.
