Green Card holder providing APIS information, what is "card number"?

Hello,

My wife recently got her green card and I was going back in to fill out the APIS information on some reservations.

When entering the information, I came across the "card number" section and I was wondering what I put in there.

The card has a "USCIS#" on the front, which is 9 characters long and is the same as her A-number.
The card also has a "CARD#" on the back in the barely readable section, which is 13 characters long. I didn't even notice it was there at first since it is so hard to see.

Which is the correct number to put in? Even though the one on the back is named "CARD#", I'm skeptical that it is the correct one since it is so hard to find and see.

I actually ended up calling aa.com support and they told me it is the longer "CARD#" and not the A-Number.

I emailed CBP a while back and they confirmed that it is the A-Number as posted earlier.
