College campuses are a rough testing ground for plastic cards. Cards may be used up to 20 times a day and will be carried in pockets and bags along with keys and coins, other cards which may be embossed, lint and sand. They most likely will be bent and flexed, put through the washer and drier, used to scrape ice off windshields and put into socks or shoes while playing intramural sports, adding the elements of sand and sweat -- and inevitably, students' dogs will chew on them.

Industry News
The plastic card invasion The tendency of modern data-driven economies is to structure economic activity in such a way that an increasing amount of data is generated.
For example, the fact that only a few years ago, few people in continental Europe used a credit card, and that now almost everybody who has a bank account also has a credit card, shows that payment by credit card is preferred to anonymous cash transaction.
If somebody pays by credit card, there are computers that register the transaction. They record who paid what amount where, and for what purpose. This is valuable information.

Security Issues
Watch out: There's an ID thief about
By Danny Bradbury [15-04-2004]

When someone says 'get a life', they don't generally mean 'take mine'. But that's exactly what happened to more than 100,000 people in the UK last year.

ID theft - where someone steals the identity of another by conventional and electronic means - has become a huge problem.

According to fraud prevention service CIFAS, the number of cases of identity fraud in the UK has increased dramatically since 1999, when 20,000 cases were reported.
