scanning loyalty cards

Anyone using their phone to store all their loyalty cards?
I know scanners work on old non-touch screens (ala KLM E-Check In) but I have not tried with my existing HTC Desire.
Reason?…
<rant> My wallet is so full of these goddamn cards
I have 2 for petrol, 1 for the DIY store, the Supermarket, Breakdown Service, Hospital, Video shop, Museum Card, Makro, Camping Card, Health insurance, Driving Licience, NL ID)

I’d much rather just have my wallet back thank-you very much instead of lugging round a suitcase in my pocket full of plastic </rant>

Someone tell me this is possible before I make a fool of myself at the checkout, .. also do screen protector make a difference (I’m not using a mirror type before you ask!)

thanks!

Holland Museum Card

The ‘Museumkaart’ is a great deal if you like to visit the museums of Holland. It gives you FREE access to nearly all the Museums across the country for a paltry price of just €44.00 per adult and €24 per children aged 3 to 12 per year (children under 3 are free in most museums). After visiting the train museum twice and the Nijntje Museum (aka ‘Miffy’ aka Dick Bruna House) more than half a dozen times, I think the card will be fast paying for itself and saving me money to boot!… Get one!

More info at the MuseumKaart website

You can buy ‘museumkaarts’ online or at all of the museums listed on their website, once purchased you can enter for free…wo0t!
