At least Dillon's has decent security cameras. Even late-model cheapos are getting decent images. It's shocking to see a bank hold-up video with really crappy image quality in this day and age. I can get an image of a deer at 10 yards on my trail cameras and you can count its eyebrows.

Dillons cards are great for tracking your every purchase and allowing Dillons to know what items they should never put on sale again because of high purchase volume. Also, it allows them to track how many times you come to the store and what stores you frequent the most. Also if you go to Dillons when you are out of town or visiting another area....

And all along you thought the Dillons card was something that was a tool for YOU to use.... shame shame tisk tisk.... wake up and get with the program people...
