too many customer cards
September 24, 2010
I have an ugly collection of customer reward cards that I’ve been carrying around in my wallet for FAR too long.
While I use my Safeway card all the time and get a lot out of it, I can’t say that the rest of them are all that helpful.
They seem like useful things when I sign up for them but really – needing to carry them in my wallet for some possible / future benefit is not really working for me.
I don’t think these cards are really getting me to go to these stores more often, or spend more money… so are they really useful?
I tried to go online and update my profile for my cards so that if necessary I could just give my phone number and not actually carry them around. Some were easy to update and some were close to impossible. At that point i just gave up.
I might keep a list of numbers in my palm pilot but that’s it.
They are out of my wallet now. And good riddens.
Now I need to work on using up the gift cards that I’m keeping in there.
