Uses for "fake" credit cards that come with credit card offers. Post your own ideas.
The fake charge card cards that are sent attached to a credit application are great for use in spreading glue, particularly with wood projects. It also help scrape clean the excess glue squeezed out when putting two pieces of wood together. Not to mention they make a handy dandy emergency window scraper conveniently thrown in the glove compartment of your car.

They're also perfect for scraping pans before washing them, especially if the pan has sat with hot water in it (or cold, depending on what's in the pan). They don't scratch, and they work really well! When my old AAA cards and such expire, I just put the cards in the drawer under my sink and use them when the one I'm using gets damaged; however, it's very hard to damage them, so I have quite a few backups.
I've been getting quite a few credit card application junk mail which come with a copy cat credit card which is not really a legitimate credit card. Some of them have magnetic backs, so I've been making magnet stickers out of them. They're fun to make and you can put whatever you want on them!

I find the Advertising Credit Cards make excellent fingernail cuticle pushers.
They are great glue spreaders for those of you who craft. I have been letting my kids play with them for a couple years. They have a play store complete with a credit card swiper thingy so they are perfect for that.
Our 3 year old likes to carry them around in her purse!! Also, we used them to scrape wall paper of the wall..it did less damage!
I use them to scrape the flour and dough off the kitchen counter after I knead my bread dough.
You should iron the name down so they cannot be used accidently. they are great ice removers for the windshild in a pinch.
I use them to scrape ice off the car windows and windshield. Works great!
