A system and method for providing a multiple-service card is disclosed. As a result, a card member 108 is provided with a single card that serves as both a credit card and a club membership card for access to the service partner's exclusive club. This multiple-service card may have the traditional credit card data on one side of the card, including, for example, the account number, name of the account holder, and the expiration date. The other side of the card may include a magnetic stripe that contains the account information in machine readable form as well as membership information suitable to permit entry into a service partner's facility. In the system, the primary party and the service partner participants cooperate to complete the processes associated with the provision of the combined card services, including a new account process, card replacement and renewal processes, a service partner membership cancellation process, and a process for cancellation and/or transfer by a primary party.
