I carry my passport card, as it has my name/bd, yet not my address. That, and we're 15-20min from the border, and sometimes hop over on a whim.

If your IP doesn't get blocked, easy enough if you use the simple "I don't want a pin" pin.

Wha...?!

When I read:
Stay at 2 Holiday Inn® hotel(s)

I read that as... Holiday Inn Express is a Holiday Inn hotel. If I had known that, I would have booked elsewhere.

That's just wrong.
