Online Shopping With Credit Cards

Do You Memorize Your Credit Card Numbers?

Sample sales, daily deals, and coupon codes mean that shopping from your laptop can get you a better deal than stepping into a brick-and-mortar shop. With all the deals out there on the Internet, I do my share of online shopping. That means that when I'm done filling my shopping cart I don't need to run for my wallet, because after entering my card number into so many checkout screens I've completely memorized all the needed digits. From the card number to expiration date to CSC, I quickly fill in the fields and start getting excited about what's coming in the mail. Some of my friends think this is ridiculous, but I feel like many of you could be the same way. So, what about you?

I do a lot of online shopping, but nearly enough to have my credit card/debit card numbers memorized. Especially since I'm not always using the same one.

No, but that IS a great idea. It's such a pain to have to run to my wallet to get my CC out when I order anything online.

Yeah, I didn't mean to memorize mine either, but I've done so much online shopping that I have!

Its not on purpose but since I shop online frequently, I have memorized the numbers of one credit card, I don't think I could do it for more than one.

I do a lot of online shopping but I haven't memorized any of my numbers. Having to get up and get my wallet gives me a few extra seconds to think about what I am about to buy and if I really need it.
