Razer's Light Up Credit Card is Stupid and I'm Sad I Can't Get One

The Razer card with its shiny green logo

Look at your current credit cards. Does any of them light up? NO? I honestly can’t understand how I’ve lived life for as long as I have without realizing how much I need a bright credit card in my life. Fortunately, the curators of all things light up, Razer is here to save the day.

Good type of.

There is only one catch: it is only available in Singapore. And even then, only for the first 1,337 people who signed up – a list I’m sure has already been filled. But even though I don’t have one, I still want to talk about it, because it’s the coolest unnecessarily cool thing I’ve seen this week.

For starters, calling it a “credit card” is a bit of a stretch: it’s a prepaid card. It does come with some perks though, like 5% cash back on Razer products and 1% cash back on other products. But who cares about the cashback. This card Light up.

The Razer Pay app, the glowing Razer card, and the boring black Razer card

It’s a black card with a shiny green Razer logo in the corner. And whenever it’s used to make a contactless payment, that logo lights up her green ass like some sort of… shiny goblin. Do goblins shine? I bet they would if Razer did. But yes, a shiny green logo, right there on your card. You can’t tell me you’re not jealous. Really you can tell me, but I won’t believe you. I wish my bank had it.

It’s a shame that you can’t change the colors of the map with Razer Chroma. Now it would be really to be something. There’s also a black version for people who hate having fun, or a virtual card for, I don’t know, anyone who uses the Razer’s Pay app (which isn’t available outside of Singapore either).

Unfortunately, it is not known if this card will ever be available outside of Singapore. But if that ever happens in the US, by golly Ima, take one so everyone in sight can be like “fuck, did you see that guy’s card lit? That’s the thing. most stupidly cool I have ever seen! ”

Yes it is.
