Hotel Industry – everyone should jump on this

Posted by salestax on June 1, 2011

OK. So, I must admit that this is the first time I’ve heard of hotels using wrist bands in place of card keys for getting in/out of the building and its amenities and charging goods/services to the room. It’s brilliant for a few reasons I can think of off the top of my head:

· Each occupant gets a key

· Keys won’t be left in room or lost

· Security enhanced – no one can use a lost key card to get in your room or charge something without your knowledge

· Savings – these bracelets have got to be cheaper than traditional key cards and since they are not reusable, many states would likely consider them exempt purchases for resale and transferred to the customer as Indiana does in this instance.

Although, if you’re at the hotel for a wedding and you get your band upon check-in on Friday evening, who wants to have the entire bridal party wearing plastic bands for their wedding photos?

To read about the case of sales tax on these wrist bands, see the following:
