I did start to wonder if I was mad hoarding all the new membership cards every year, until I got some inspiration from a few travellers at the airport proudly displaying their shiny baggage tags.
Normally I would take a picture of my card and store it on my phone, or use AwardWallet to keep a track of my membership numbers, since that's all any airport or hotel needs from you.
So this time I got out my Dremel and made my own baggage tag (of course not forgetting to drill out membership numbers and scratch off magnetic strips):
But I'm convinced there are brighter ideas out there, such as reprogramming the magnetic strips to open your garage door/change air conditioning settings / switch to your favourite TV channel.
