Here in the UK we also have the chip (or should that be 'crisp'?) on the card. It allows you to buy things up to £30.00 in value just by holding the card near the reader. The time lag is usually very short, so quite a good system.
I tried scraping the ice off my windscreen with my local store loyalty card - But I only got 20% off!

Get one of these: ICEPLANE Twin Bladed Car Ice Scraper: Amazon.co.uk: Car & Motorbike[^] - I've been using one for about two years, and they are excellent. Not only do you not break the card, but they sheer off the ice at a good rate, better than any other scraper I've tried. Only drawback is that you need good gloves or the scrapped off ice will freeze your fingers solid...

Don't laugh, when I was a kid driving to the Oz snowfields (I lived in Sydney where it never snows and barely gets cold) the windscreen started to fog up so I hit the windscreen washer - instant whiteout as the liquid froze onto the windscreen at 120km per hour. Scared the crap out of me!

I have done that at low speed (<30 mph), but never on a fast road. I was also riding my motorbike one cold night with the visor open, and as soon as I closed it my glasses fogged up. Now that was scary.
