Pieces of Life: The Hello Kitty Edition

Damn, that bloody kitty! She's popping up everywhere lately isn't she? I'm speaking of Miss Hello Kitty of course!

With the introduction of the MAC Hello Kitty Collection the entire world is being reintroduced to every one's favorite cat again! The Muse loves the fact that everyone is embracing Hello Kitty and loving all over her.

Actually since we are all feeling the love for Miss Kitty this Spring how about banking with HK herself?

Jump ahead for the deets!

If you happen to have an account with Bank of America you can sign up for their new program called My Expressions Banking.

My Expressions Banking is simply a gimmicky deal that allows you to embrace the unique side of your personality while banking. Who the hell knows why banks deem it necessary to make your banking more personal with debit cards that feature cats, dogs, and any other array of items that suit your personality! But hey I am so NOT complaining as I am loving the My Expressions Banking Hello Kitty Edition.

Basically the program simply works by taking your old ugly blue and silver debit card and replacing it with a pink and white Hello Kitty debit card! Oh my god the cuteness may make me hurl! But not only does your debit card change you'll also get checks featuring Hello Kitty and your monthly paper statement (if you get one in the mail) will be printed on Hello Kitty stationary! How awesome is that?

Sincerely, can I embrace my inner 6 year old kid with these options? I love that my bank card sports Hello Kitty! For the Muse it's the equivalent of a black American Express Card.

I actually don't get monthly paper statements as I do my banking online but I was too curious to see these Hello Kitty statements so I switched back to paper for a month and was oddly delighted to see Miss Kitty making an appearance on my banking statement...lord things can't get any cuter!

If you're a Bank of America customer you can call up and have your current debit card switched over to My Expressions Banking right now. Believe me if you're an HK fan you're so gonna wanna do this. And hey if Bank of America tanks at least you'll have a cute debit card that's virtually useless! Yay!

Click to make the switch from blah banking to Hello Kittified banking!

I nearly squealed in the bank when I saw the Hello Kitty debit card. I opened a BoA account when Wamu was getting bought out/in the midst of failure, right when My Expression started.

When I went to buy my Hello Kitty MAC Collection, the SA saw it and commented that I must love the kitty. Well, I do. How can I deny the miss?

Good God, no offense but why the hell would anyone allow a bank that has Hello Kitty cards to manage their money? Is this a new ploy to get younger(!) girls to invest their money in banks?

I lol'd at 'embrace the unique side of your personality while banking', the unique side of your personality that is so common that they're mass producing a credit card with it stamped onto the front. Banks come up with the lamest advertising gimmicks...

I have the Hello Kitty checks. Believe it or not, it makes me a bit happy to pay my bills when I'm writing on them, lol. I want to get the debit card as well but I might get that when the old one expires.

hi youdee.

I actually use this bank. It's just a fun option they have available. You can have the regular debit card or customize it with Hello Kitty or a picture of your family etc...
I'm not really a young girl but I love it :)

Oh well to each her own!
