The world's largest frequent diner's membership?

While in Oregon, we went to a nice restaurant in downtown Portland.  They also have several places out near Hillsboro, so Sue and Marty accepted their offer of a frequent diner's card.  I forget what the benfits were, but when we got the card I was simply astounded.  The membership number was:

6000012850003160536086xxx, where I have omitted the last three numbers (not sure why).

For those of you who want to see it a different way:  6,000,012,850,003,160,536,086,xxx

This means they can hand every one of the 6 billion people on earth, a billion unique cards each, and they still have room to grow their audience by a factor of 1,000,000. Is it just me or does that seem like a bit much?
