I am not quite sure what you are talking about. Do you mean the fake credit cards you often get with "pre-approved" credit card applications? If so, I don't know of anyone who collects them. If you are wondering what to do with them. Give them to children to play with as "real cards". My nephew loved his credit card and license I made him. If they are thick plastic ( or you can use empty gift cards ), then you can trace a guitar pick and you will have plenty of usable extra picks.

Hi, Becca25,

Thanks for your response! I mean the fake ones that come with pre-approved credit care offers. I used to use them for all the uses (well, except guitar picks :-) ) I've seen recommended here until I decided to save them.

The back story is this. I am a retired elementary teacher. I began collecting these about 12 (?) years ago when I was teaching. I never had enough for the whole class, and 6 years ago I retired, so they've been sitting and more have joined them. Right now, I have 29, but I think there is another stash somewhere because I thought there were some Discover ones with American Flags on them and I don't see those in this batch. Five or six companies. That's why I wondered if there are collectors. Sort of like baseball cards.

That's what I was going to say. I give them to my grandkids and they love playing with them. I've also given them little wallets to hold them in. They feel all grown up!

Children love them. If you don't have any children, you might donate them to a daycare, grade school, Sunday school or hospital for their children.
