• Frank McNamara went out to eat in New York City in 1950. Before going to the restaurant, he had changed suits and left his wallet in his other suit, and suddenly found that he had no way to pay for his meal. This was his inspiration to invent the Diners Club card, a credit card that could be used at 28 different New York restaurants and two hotels. Having a Diners Club card quickly became a status symbol, and its popularity soon spread, growing to 10,000 members in its first year. McNamara still thought it was a fad that would pass, and sold his share in Diners Club for $200,000 (equivalent to about $1.6 million today). By the mid-1960, Diners Club had 1.3 million cardholders and was used around the world. Diners Club, the first true credit card, was bought out by Citicorp. • Today, 75% of American adults have at least one credit card, and 80% have debit cards. • The total value of credit card transactions in the U.S. alone is about $2.48 trillion per year. • Two-thirds of all in-person sales are made with plastic, and 27% are made with cash. • Each American household receives approximately 6 credit card offers a month. • There are 10,000 worldwide credit card transactions every second. • The average value of a single typical credit card transaction in the U.S. is $94.00. • In the U.S, there are about 1.4 billion cards in circulation. • Credit cards are used more than 20 billion times in one year just in the U.S. • Stacking all the credit cards in the United States would create a tower 288 miles high. • All credit cards everywhere are the same size: 85.60 mm x 53.98 mm. ...continued
