New Light-Up Razer Card Announced

Advertiser Disclosure Editorial Disclosure

Popular gaming peripheral brand, Razer, has a new prepaid credit card for those who want to earn points in Razer’s loyalty program. The new light-up prepaid card (yes, it lights up) is currently in its beta stage. That said, here’s what we know about the hotly anticipated Razer light-up Visa prepaid card.

Earn Razer Rewards with Every Purchase

The Razer Card is a prepaid Visa card. Like the Apple Card, Razer sees its new card as an innovative way for loyal gamers to pay for purchases through their in-house e-wallet, Razer Pay. However, unlike the Apple Card, the Razer Card is a prepaid card – and not an unsecured credit card.

According to Razer, one of the leading gaming accessory merchants, customers will earn Razer Rewards, with the chance to get “up to $2,000 worth of Razer gear and free card upgrades.” Initially, beta users in Singapore and Malaysia earn 1% back on all purchases, but the final rewards structure may not yet be finalized.

A Light Up Razer Card

The real talking point with this new product is the LED component that illuminates every time a cardholder makes a contactless purchase. The LED, which is in the shape of the Razer company logo, illuminates in its trademark green hue.

The tech brand hopes its new card will gain the same traction as the Apple Card. Regardless, it will likely be a massive hit with gamers thanks to its uniquely Razer-inspired design. Exactly when the beta testing phase completes is currently unknown. The testing process is only open to the first 1,337 people in Singapore and Malaysia – where the Razer Pay service is also available.
