    I just cleaned out my back pack that I take to Vegas. And I have accumulated a ton of cards. This is probably only about half as I have almost as many in my night stand. Anyone else accumulate too many ?

    I have a whole lot more. I too have a back pack I carry there and over the years I have just been throwing the cards in the back pack. A lot of the casinos don't even exist anymore.

    I bring them every time I go.

    I have a ton of them. Like npom, many from casinos that don't exist anymore.

    When I'm in Vegas, I keep them all on a keyring, attached to this bungy thing that I clip to the ring on my purse strap. Purse goes in my lap, card goes in the slot and no way I can forget my card because it's attached to me. ;)

    I was sitting next to a woman who had her card on a bungy type thing. When she left the machine, she did not remove the card from the reader. The Bungy stretched an yanked the card out. It flew into my face, then started swinging behind her. She was totally oblivious to what just happened.

    You have less than 20% of what I have (just for Las Vegas).

    I keep them in plastic bags marked "Strip" Downtown", and "other Las Vegas", I also have a plastic bag for Reno/Tahoe and "other US".

    I used to keep them in two folding sleeves for credit cards.

    If that was me, I'm sorry. I blame it on the alcohol. :drunk:

    I have tried to walk away with the card still in the machine. Usually it doesn't come out, but I feel like someone is trying to grab my purse off my shoulder. Maybe I'm not fleeing the machines fast enough.

    I keep ours in a box that checkbooks come in. The whole box is full. I keep them alphabetized so they are easy to find.

    I probably have at least 70 of them. I find reasons to not even dump duplicates.

    Good Idea! A degenerate's rolodex sort of... I'm going to need to do that!

    I keep mine in an old wallet that is just stuffed so full that I keep it in my travel bag permanently "open" (it will not fold). Its a total Costanza (seinfeld) wallet!

    I have noticed however that cards will "expire" from time to time and you need to go reactivate and get a new one. Not demagnetize, but rather the machine will say your account is locked please visit the players club. They never seem surprised when I get there; does that happen to others too?

    No disrespect, but I laugh when I see people have a keyring FULL of cards...especially so when buying into a table...I'll post my cards here in a second (and I still have more; just got lost in transition)

    I've seen that too, it's a valid point. There is such a thing as too much.

    I don't really carry that many in Vegas, 5-6 I think. I only carry the ones I'll need. Different rings for different locations. You don't need that many cards to cover most of The Strip and Downtown.

    I have a couple from each of the casinos, Caesars, Paris, Aladdin, Bally's, Flamingo Hilton, Las Vegas Hilton, Mirage, Treasure Island, Barbary Coast, San Remo, Bellagio, Lady Luck, One Club, Park Place, etc. A long time ago back in the nineties, I wanted one from every casino. I probably have most of them.

    I keep mine in a zippered make up bag. I reluctantly threw out the riviera one thinking it might be a collector item.

    I've got a pretty big stack of cards and used to bring them to Las Vegas every trip, but now I only take my MLife, Total Rewards, Grazie and Tropicana cards - I just eventually realized that with all the other cards I never put in enough play to earn any comps or if they did send me something it is likely I wouldn't want/use it.

    We have a drawer in our kitchen that all of our Vegas stuff ends up in. All of our players cards and mailers that we receive go in the drawer. When Ramsey opened his steakhouse at Paris and PHO put his picture on the key cards my wife who is a big fan kept the card and it has ended up in the drawer. I only carry the CET and Mlife players cards and used to keep them on a nice gold key chain I received from the MGM but I lost it a few years ago when I left it in a machine at NYNY. Now I just keep the cards in my cash stash with my cool rubber band money clip.

    the best place to protect them from the heat is to put them in the old "sucrets" boxes i have a whole lot of them too............
