I wish I had an expired credit card or two. Why?

Hi!

Do you want to use them for something other than their intended use? Something that would damage them? Something that would result in you losing them?

Is the reason you don't have any expired credit cards relevant?

If you did have an expired credit card, would you cut it up? Scratch it? Use it to scratch something else? To open a latch? Use it as a decoy credit card to keep your other ones safe? :)

Use it as a decoy credit card to keep your other ones safe? :) Umm, Yes, actually :) I did have the feeling that this puzzle would be an easy one.

Ahh, let's kill this one right now.

Yes, I'm going on vacation to Los Cabos in a few weeks, and in doing my research I came upon some advice that it might my helpfull to carry a decoy wallet with some obsolete credit cards and just a few bills, and keep the real stuff better hidden.

Of course, this is Los Cabos, and not Mexico City, so I probably don't kneed to worry too much about this.

Well, I guess this advice I read, must be a very well known technique.

hehe. Not your fault. I'm kind of new at posting puzzles here, but perhaps because of this lack of experience, I'm finding that it's really difficult to predict which ones will go quickly, and which ones will be difficult!
