  • The Corporations Are Winning

    The grocery store where we live has a fuel rewards program where you get a point for every dollar spent in the grocery store. For every 100 points, you get 10 cents off each gallon of gas you buy at the grocery chain’s gas stations.

    I started using this program as it seemed fair at the time. The rules being any remaining unused points in a calendar month would carry over to the next month. A couple years ago, I noticed the rules had changed and the unused points no longer carried over to the next month.

    There would be times when I would look at my point totals and it would say I had 85 points for the previous month, but I was already past the cutoff day, so those points were useless. Oh, and to add insult to injury, I would go to get gas and my point total for the current month was only 99.

    Anyway, this is bullshit. As a customer of this grocery store, I feel cheated and I’m not going to buy fuel from their gas stations anymore. I’m seriously thinking about getting groceries somewhere else, too. You want to mess with me? I’ll boycott yo ass.
