Perfect Way To Save Money

January 3rd, 2010 at 11:41 am

...is when the store you want to shop at that night is closed. I seriously wanted to buy at least $10 worth of stuff at the Asian Depot but they were totally closed.

It's a perfectly good way to save money. Hard to buy stuff when the stuff isn't there...

So I went to Publix and bought $10 worth of birthday gifts for my brother.

I really really like the Asian store because they always have wierd imported foods that you can't read since it's written in Chinese. It's fun to pick it up and go "Let's see if I can finish this one!" so sometimes it's like going into a theme park for me. You never know what will be there. I buy the stuff just to try it. (Maybe if I start a really really good food blog on it, I'll get paid and be able to afford to buy the stuff =/ )

The Asian Store has a nice trick though, which isn't posted anywhere in the store. If you pay with a card, there's a minimum of $10 you have to buy, or they won't accept the purchase or transaction. It really makes me go gurr.

It's pretty expensive. When a box of Pocky costs like 2.99 to 4.99, yeah.

/sigh Oh Asian Store.

    I'm pretty sure that merchants are not allowed by Visa or master card to have a minimum required purchase.

    I wish we had an Asian store! Oh wait, we have a tiny one but it doesn't have much at all. I wish we had an Asian store with a good stock! The closest one is in Shreveport, LA. and I do go there a few times a year but you're right - if it isn't open you can't buy! Wink
    On our most recent trip to Louisiana, we noticed several convenience stores with $10 minimum purchases for using any kind of card. That's the first I'd seen or heard of that and I was a little surprised.
