Re: Leaving Gas Card in the Car = Wise?

Just had one of my cars broken into in my own driveway...I don't leave anything in a car that's not parked in the garage, including the garage door opener.  Used to have a company car, we HAD to leave the Clark Oil credit card above the driver's sunvisor in its little waxy-paper sleeve, because we rotated cars periodically and they didn't want the cards to go missing. 


I have had some real POS cars, and I always wondered if it would entice someone to steal the car if I left a gas card on the dash...worth more for the insurance company to pay out than I could have sold the cars for...

No problem.  Just let me know when it will be parked and unlocked.


Seriously, I wouldn't do that.  Between getting the car serviced, washed, and sticky fingered passangers - I wouldn't do it.  Also from a FICO score prospective, you don't want the card canceled over this.
