The Mystery of the Missing Cards

We all have them. Whether we like it or not. Those little "savings" cards that all the grocery stores and book stores, and gas stations make you get to get the 'real' price on their products. Its a bummer, but if you want the cold cereal for 4 for $10 and not $3.75 each, its a necessary evil.

Well, a couple days ago I went to Smith's to get some milk and some lunch and decided to do the self check out (cause I always like to check myself out...) and the nice lady in the machine asks me to scan my Fresh Values Card and I pull pull out my keys, ready to do just that, when I notice that I don't have my Fresh Values Card. I don't have any of my cards...

I cancel my order, move to another lane and search my purse. Nothing. Five little key chain cards, and none of them are still there. I give the cashier my phone number instead, and guess what? My card was not under my phone number. So I gave him Niks. Oh well.

Now, I realize that this is really not a big deal. All I have to do is ask for a replacement card and they will give me one. And any "points" or whatever that accumulated on my number can be accessed by my phone number, but that was really frustrating. And I cannot find them anywhere! Not in the house, not in the car, not in my purse. Some how 5 cards have disappeared off my key chain. Not one at a time, all at once.



Plus side? My key chain is lighter.

I think you should list all the cards you had so we can get a better feel for the type of being you are! I'm sorry for your loss.

I hate those little cards anyway! Why not just give me the best price?

Ditto Kathy- why should we have to be put through such agony JUST to get a better price? That's why I shop WalFart, people- NO CARDS!! LOL!! ;)
