Club Cards are the Worst Thing Ever January 24, 2007

Ok, I’m feeling a little more dramatic than usual (see title), one, because I was just reading Things I Hate (warning: language, but funny), and second, because I just found a way to eliminate (almost) all my “club cards”.

Club cards are the worst.  First of all, you have to sign up for them, which they always want you to do at the most inconvenient time, like when your kids are being nightmares.  But, of course, I cant just let that three dollar savings go down the drain…

You also have to carry more and more cards around.  So, unless you want a mom keychain or a Costanza wallet, you then have to limit the stores you shop.  Maybe thats the point?

I’ve just ended up giving my phone number when I can, but that’s a pain too.

The fix is called “Just One Club Card”. You input all of the barcode numbers for your club cards (Fry’s, Best Buy, Staples, etc.), and it spits them all out onto one convenient card. Awesome.
