My Wallet 2.0 only supports eight cards. So, after the usual array of banking and credit cards and apartment access card, there isn’t any room for store loyalty cards. I don’t care for them in the first place, but the wallet seals the deal.
If I was a loyalty card man, I could easily have eight or ten. Off the top of my head: Choices groceries, Urban Fare, Shoppers Drug Mart, Pharamsave, Body Shop, Chapters, The Bay, local video stores, gas stations and so forth. Even for somebody with a regular wallet or purse, that’s a lot of barely-useful plastic to carry around.
I was tired of my pocket looking like I was storing supplies for winter (you know, like chipmunks with their cheeks). It’s a card for your wallet that contains the barcodes for all those discount stores. I have the shoe store, pet store, and about 5 grocery stores on mine. I just whip out the card, tell them which barcode to scan, get a weird look and a question, and then I’m on my way.
He scanned all his bar codes, arranged them in Photoshop, and printed them out so they’d all fit on a single card. Strong work.
