For a few months, mailings of new membership cards were delayed because MOA was waiting on new cards. Mine arrived yesterday, and it's THICK like a credit card! As if my wallet was not thick enough already. AMA cards are too thick, as well as the "loyalty cards" from all the hotel chains. But ya gotta carry them, 'cause you might need your ID number or the 800 number while traveling.
What was wrong with the thin plastic cards they used previously? They were durable and took up less space in the wallet. I called the membership office to offer my humble opinion and left a message because it's a holiday. The number is 636-394-7277 in case you agree with me. They are really nice folks there (I had a previous call with them a couple of weeks ago) and I am sure they would be happy to hear from more members...but only if you agree with me, LOL.
You might suggest that I carry a separate card case with those not-too-essential cards in it. Hey, I have enough trouble remembering my wallet (and that's another story...)
Thanks for the bandwidth. Now to call AMA...
