Another wallet, please

So, what is the USA's infatuation with reward cards? You know, THOSE cards you simply MUST have to gain points, get the latest discount, or apply the unadvertised price. Yeah, we all know them...

I was trying to fill-up the gas-guzzling Trans Am and was not understanding why the credit card machine at the pump was not accepting my card. I went to the kiosk to ask the attendant for assistance. She immediately responded with: "Did you press 'NO' first?" Not certain as to why I had to enter 'NO,' she stated that the first question that is asked is if I was going to use my rewards card. She zipped out a spare rewards card from her frock pocket, swiped it and, lucky for me, helped me save 2 cents per gallon on my fill-up. Phew. I am glad that waste of time and the additional card saved me a whomping 15 cents. I guess it truly is a case of "every penny counts."

In the two weeks I have been back in the States, I have collected SEVEN reward cards. I am wondering who is really getting rewarded here. I need another wallet to hold these darn things...let alone remembering to use the card once I have it.
