    "Black" credit cards are now a higher level than "platinum" cards, I'd be happy to use my Tesla key card as a (no fee) credit card to eliminate a card in my wallet. Seems like a missed opportunity for Tesla to have a branded card and it's associated revenue. Now it is just in the way of my Costco credit card in my wallet. Instead of airline miles, you could earn supercharger credits or over the air upgrades. What do you think? Also if you are an intellectual property attorney is there any way I can monetize this or is it too late already?

    Would complicate valeting or any other time you need to give the key card to someone.

    How is the poor valet going to hang the key card on the rack? What if he has 5 Models 3s parked? All the cards look identical. First world problem, S and X guys swear they will never valet their car.

    Tesla could provide a separate valet card that would also limit speed and acceleration. You could bring it along when you know you're going to valet the car, otherwise leave it at home.
