ThankYou Member since 23?

Postby PhillyPhoto » Wed Jun 03, 2015 11:36 am

I requested a chipped replacement card on my ThankYou account and it came a few weeks ago. I noticed however, it says I've been a "Member since 23" on the bottom. It was opened in July of 2010, so it's not even a misprint of the first digit. It works, and it's kind of fun, so I don't plan on requesting a replacement at this point. Anyone else ever get funny/weird misprints on their cards?

Wow. You're old, dude.

I had a corporate card issued to "A SMITH FLAN", if my name were FLAN A SMITH. When I complained, they told me they couldn't fix it, and it wouldn't be a problem. First time I tried to use it, to rebook an airline ticket at the airport w/ zero notice, the ticket agent wouldn't take it, because it didn't match my name. It got fixed real fast when I called my boss and said "sorry, the card you gave me doesn't work to buy airline tickets, can't go to that meeting."! (I waited a bit, and got in a different line, and that ticket agent didn't blink when the names didn't match.

Like Flan, I have a business card that uses my middle and last name (I go by my middle name), but my ID and personal card have my first and last name. I was buying gift cards for work as prizes, a total of about $200 and the guy wanted to see ID. He freaked out when it didn't match. I had to wait for a manager to come over and show both of them my business card, ID, Student ID, ect. Basically anything that could prove that all the cards were the same person. Real PITA. I might get the name on the card changed to avoid this in the future.

I just got a replacement of my replacement with a note about the "Member Since" date, so I guess I wasn't the only one!
