WORLD'S FIRST CREDIT CARD
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's first credit card?

In 1949 Frank McNamara decided to treat some friends to dinner at Major's Cabin Grill in New York City.

When it came time to pay the bill Frank noticed he forgot to bring his wallet, but instead of washing dishes, forced his wife to drive over to bring him the money.

Needless to say Frank was quite embarrassed and vowed it would never happen again and Diners Club, the world's first credit card was born.

The first of these cards, made of cardboard, were given out in 1950 to about 2,000 people and were accepted by 14 restaurants in New York.

Nowadays, in America, there are five credit cards for every man, woman and child.
