    2) Some phone books don't have zip codes listed, but addresses are. You can google map the address and get the zip code.

    3) The California Supreme Court, along with the 9th Circus there, has better things to do with the taxpayer money than harass businesses in that state.

    4) On every credit application I have ever turned in, I have always read it before I signed it. Sounds just like what this lady should have done. Once it's signed, the terms on it are legally binding, as the application is then essentially a contract. I don't know about anybody else, but I ALWAYS read a contract before I sign it. If information is sold to third parties, it is always disclosed, as that is the law. If she didn't like it, she should have just gone somewhere else to do business. But the court has no business to declare a signed contract invalid.

    If this case makes it to the Supreme Court, the majority decision will be to reverse the California decision, and have a good laugh in closed chambers. LOL.
    It's the store that asked for the zip code not her credit card company.

    Are you still on this? Don't you get it, the store was selling the data, NOT the credit card company!

    If I get asked for my phone number at a checkout, I tell them it's unlisted. IF I get asked for my zip code, I politely decline.

    Not once have I been refused service for doing so.
