You all know about loyalty cards. Its just the way lifestyles is nowadays. Most business outlets are coming up with loyalty cards as to lure their customers back and accumulate points to exchange for gifts later on. To tell the truth I am a card collector, I mean loyalty card collector. I will sign up for any loyalty program if there is no membership or processing fee involve. Uusally membership will be Free for the fisrt year. I am not an avid shopper, so I do not collect many points and when there is a need for renewal with membership, I will just let the membership self destruct (errr..I mean terminated).
The first loyalty program card I used was Bonus Link but when Real Rewards came, I get more comfortable using the latter. The most valid reason for me using it is I can collect more point with its 1:1 basis compared to the former. Then I lost my Bonus Link together with my wallet and I never applied for a renewal. So I only used Real rewards because it combined with Petronas's Mesra Card. It's easy to carry just a single card when I can collect points at Petronas service stations or shopping at supermarkets that award points for shopping.
This is the common loyalty card that I had been using
Then Mesra card decided to severe the ties. I knew about it when I receive a letter from the card provider. So, I applied for a new Mesra Card at Petronas............
........and the new Real Rewards Card.
Now I have to carry an extra card. It do make my wallet fatter. Not with flexible cash but plastic cards.
