How Many Of Your FF Numbers Do You Know By Heart?

Mon May 04, 2015 5:43 am

Do you know most, some, or just the one you travel with the most?

For some reason I know my numbers on AA and Avis even though they are not, and have never been the most used. For the others, Evernote, my phone, my laptop and our CTM all do a much better job of remembering them. Some are just too damn long anyway, like Miles&More's.

I always have to look it up when I'm booking flights. But I do remember my credit card number, which makes it easy to purchase things online Big grin

The QF one, because I have had it the longest and used it the most. The VA one I don't know, have to look it up.

I can remember my credit card numbers but not my M&M number although they're the same length. Perhaps because I use the credit card too much and the M&M card not enough!

I recall my AA number, which is the one I probably use the less. No clue why... Can't recall any other

Another AA only here. It's looking like this is a rather odd phenomenon.

I am guessing it has something to do with being relatively short (8 characters) and a blend of alphanumeric characters.

Oh I definitely know my Delta #, and have for years. Even after they changed it during the merger with NW--I was NW and had to get a new DL number.

I also know my AA number and DL Amex #.

I know my AA number, I think that's because you had to use it to login to the website for a long time.

I used to know my A+ Rewards number. Can't say the same for my Rapid Rewards or SkyPesos numbers.

However, when asked, I can recite my VIN.

I know my Qantas Frequent Flyer number and can usually recall it instantly. I know the first number of my Air New Zealand Airpoints number, but that's it. Not a clue about any of the others.

I know my UA, AA, and DL numbers by heart. And I'm surprised when agents are surprised when I'm able to rattle them off off the top of my head when needed because I feel like why wouldn't you know the numbers?

That said, I feel like kiosks and other airline systems have gotten much better over the years about recognizing FF profiles and adding the number when booking and then making sure the miles are quickly credited.

I know AA and UA. Plus AACiticard #, all my purchases go on that and are paid off immediately. It's used like my debit card.

I only know one of my FQTV numbers by heart (my AB Topbonus number)
There are just too many other numbers to keep in my mind ... (CC / several PIN numbers / etc.)
Only my credit card number I can tell any time including CVC number which makes instant online purchases easier.

I know my WN, AA, DL and UA numbers. B6 I don't know, and not a single hotel or car loyalty plan number, in fact I'm not 100% sure which Hotel and Car plans I am actually a member of. I know my very first check account number from the UK for an account I have barely used in 20 years but haven't got a clue about my current checking account.

I only have one and it is only 6 digits, if I can't remember that I shouldn't be allowed out unsupervised.

1
Probably because I just have 1.  
Also I'm pretty good with numbers so even if I have 5 I can still probably remember them as well.

I know my AA and UA ones by heart because it's a mixture of letters and numbers. WN and DL are a bit trickier because they're all numbers.

I have had my AA FF# since 1982. It is so old that it is Bxxxxxx, where the x's are all numbers.

I don't generally admit it, but I know my SkyMiles number, Hilton HHonors, and Enterprise Plus numbers all without looking them up...
