What does your Credit Card say about you?

 I ran across this neat article at mint.com about how to "read" your credit card. Apparently all those digits mean something to the issuers, and tell a story about you.  It's best to read this one at the source, but some tidbits are:

  • The first digit shows if the issuer was an airline, bank or other institution
  • The first 6 digits are the issuer code

Most interesting, there is a math trick to see if a credit card number is "real", which can help you spot bogus cards.
