Re: Do You Memorize Your CC Number?

Not a clue!

 

Remember credit card numbers?!? I consider it a success if I remember 3 out of my 4 kids' names every day. It's an outright celebration if I remember my own! Smiley Tongue

Re: Do You Memorize Your CC Number?

if you use them a lot to buy stuff online, i don't see why it's so extreme to actually know the information without looking at the card.

Re: Do You Memorize Your CC Number?

I know or recognize most of my bank accounts, and cc by the last four digits only.    That is all that shows on receipts and online.

Re: Do You Memorize Your CC Number?

dude11, you're on a credit/FICO/repair board - you're going to see a lot things which may seem extreme to you. 

 

Anyway, I never memorized a cc# but I used to have my debit and checking account number memborized before my memory got bad.  I still know my driver's license # though.

I can definitely see this happening. I used to be able to remember things too. Smiley Tongue

 

I can still recite my late father's SSN, which was the "sponsor number" that I needed to know as an Army brat. That was in the late 60's - early 70's. Sadly, he passed away in 1980, but there's that number still rattling around in my head, 414-22-0XXX. Go figure.

I could if I want to.

 

I can still remember my library card number, which is 20 digits.

I only remember one card that I received from Discover in 2001, which was closed long ago.  I still remember it today.  60110067006681XX.  That card was the best. 


 

I remember the number of the very first Cap1 secured Mastercard that I had back in the mid-1990s. It's been closed for years, but I can't get the number out of my head; I can still rattle it off.

Some of us just have, uhmm... eccentric memories. I'm bad with names and faces, but good with numbers. <shrug>
