data base. I wish they would forget the cards and simply put the items on sale ! <<


In the Phoenix area, all the major stores converted to the "card system" over the past few years. Like most others (on this board at least), I really like the savings but am a little reluctant to give up my privacy.

My solution: Just make up a name, address, personal info, etc., when you request your card. In our area, nothing was ever cross-checked and no identification was asked for.

Ethically, how does that sit with all of you? I personally don't mind trading telling a "lie" to preserve my right to privacy. If I was morally pure, maybe I'd have to pay the higher prices instead of telling a lie.

It's not something I lose sleep over, so maybe I'm getting too old to worry about purity, as I know I've already lost the perfect game, to force a baseball metaphor into this post.
