Got it! But, I guess my question is, what value do I really get from having a copy of my SPG card in the passbook. I kinda like having a boarding pass, and Starbuck's card, but what does one do by having a SPG member card available in the passbook? What do we think SPGs plans are with this new integration.
It's kind of useless, no? I believe that Passbook is for boarding passes to show when you need them, then you "shredder" them. When you actually fly, it's more annoying than useful to have to "scroll" between your boarding pass and this permanently present member card? I could see how it could be useful for reservation confirmations, though.
