In my coupon class, I talk about “thinking out of the box” for deals…this qualifies as one of them!
Some Mobil gas stations have a “punch card” offer: Buy 9 items, get the 10th FREE. The items they include are:
- Milk, any gallon
- Bread, Wonder or Home Pride
- Ice Cream, any half gallon of Schoep’s or Blue Bunny
Occasionally they have “double punch” days — or throw in a deal with boxed cereal. I also like to check them for tear pads — they usually have candy and soda coupons, great high-value ones! (remember, only take a FEW). We don’t do much of either but share with a friend who does.
It pays to go inside to pay occasionally, instead of always paying at the pump!
