Perpetual discounts to LA venues with $1 LA Metro TAP card

Hanging around LA Metro website as an occasional rider of Metro

http://thesource.metro.net/2014/03/1...-%E2%88%92-16/

It seems someone has posted and figured out a way to earn discounts to LA area venues for a little as $1 investment in LA Metro's TAP card.

The Metro representative in the comments section answered that there really is no way of checking by the merchants and retailers whether you used Metro or not, no way of checking if it has a cash value or a valid pass or not, no way of knowing whether the card is expired or not. All it is then is a discount card that can be used in perpetuity for as little as $1.

Basically simple as:

1. Obtain a TAP card ($1) at any Metro Rail station
2. Keep an eye out at http://www.metro.net/service/discounts/ for discounts
3. Get to the venues anyway possible (don't even have to use Metro)
4. Show card (merchant has no way of knowing whether you used Metro, has a valid fare in it, or the expiration date has passed)
5. Get discount
6. Repeat in perpetuity
