Unexpected Benefits to Helping Someone Out

June 17th, 2010 at 01:49 pm

I went with my coworker to Safeway to get items for sale for the Graduation Party. We got 8 cases of Deer Park water, 12 - 12pks of Coke Products, 2 lg bags of Tostitos, 2 lg bags of pretzels, and a couple of other small items. Her total, before the Safeway card was over $130. Her look was resigned, it was what she expected to pay. I gave her my Safeway card and she used the coupons to take her total down to $62. She was thrilled. In facted, she wanted to celebrate by going to Chick-fil-a for dinner. Save it, spend it is her motto.

After we went our separate ways, I stopped at Safeway to get gasoline as that was the cheapest in my area that day. I put in my Safeway card for the 3cent discount and it came up 10 cents off. Wow! How did that happen? I usually spend a few pennies to $1.25 each time I go. I finally figured it out. By letting her use my Safeway card, the order being over $50, gave me a 10cent discount. An unexpected benefit. $2.47 for gas around here is cheap. Yes, sirree, filler' up!
