Re: Do You Memorize Your CC Number?

I inadvertently memorized my first US Bank check card number from entering it online so much, and then I realized how convenient it was to have it memorized. Sadly most of my credit card numbers aren't as easy to memorize as that one was.

Oddly enough, there are two numbers that stick in my head.

 

One is a primary bank account number.  The other is (go figure) my driver's license number.

 

Don't know why that is.

 

Is there a shrink on these boards?!?  Willing to work for free?  Smiley Very Happy


 

Although not exactly a shrink, my mother can prescribe you the meds you may need.  Smiley Happy

 

I remember two card numbers w/ exp. dates and CCV2s.  Both banks allowed me to select my own numbers as long as it fit into their algorithm.  So, I ended up with XXXX-0000-0000-0000 on one and XXXX-Favorite Numbers-0000-0000 on the other.

Re: Do You Memorize Your CC Number?

I only know the last 4 digits of the cards I use most.

Oh yeah, right.  Then I'd have to pay for them, instead of just borrowing some of hers.

I had total recall of every number appearing on my Amex Plat card within a few hours.

Re: Do You Memorize Your CC Number?

I have 2 credit cards memorized.  

 

I think the only other things I have memorized are my frequent flyer number, SSN and DL#.  Ask me my cell number and I hesitate and have to revert to my phone to get it!  Smiley Very Happy

Re: Do You Memorize Your CC Number?

The only card number I've managed to memorize is my Cap1, because I've had it the longest. Haven't memorized any of the other cards, security codes, etc. They all just got updated, so the exp. dates and codes changed anyway.

Re: Do You Memorize Your CC Number?

Huh? I can barely find my way home at night.  I'd be happy to remember my phone number or that other number you call when you need emergency assistance.

Re: Do You Memorize Your CC Number?

When I had only one credit card, I knew that number by heart. Then I had to change the card twice within a year due to fraudulent use, plus I got several others. Nowadays, there's no way I remember them. I know only partial numbers.
