I've been thinking about it, but haven't got the time for the details.

I've done these for about 2 years. It's a plastic punch card with 8 spaces on it and then I give them a free order (up to a certain value or the maximum off a bigger order) on the 9th order. I have had at 20 customers get the free order, and one lady has gotten 2! It's also like giving them a business card that they are guaranteed to keep longer than usual. I got a funky punch in the scrapbooking department so they can't just fill it up themselves. It has worked well for me, but everyone's clients are different.

You could always use a unique stamp too instead of a punch. I always keep card that are frequent buyer card longer then I would a normal business card. Sounds like a great idea!

I have a card for coffee (I serve lattes, cappuccinos, etc). I had a stamp made.

Having a punch card that doubles as a business card sounds like a brilliant idea, but there are always those people with no integrity that will cheat their way into a premature freebie. Maybe keeping a spreadsheet with customer names and # of purchases, doing the "punching" behind the scenes in your records and providing frequent buyer discounts without the card?
