I do buy some foodstuffs online. Dried herbs,spices, onion/garlic powder can be about 1/3 of the store price if bought in quantity.

But I do depend on others for bulky foods like frozen veg and rice/pasta; partly because I don't drive and partly because "anxiety" makes the shops highly unpleasant. The kinds of foods I get don't appear to be foods that have any useful discounts so if someone else can make use of the points they are welcome to them.

i keep most of them in my wallet, the only ones we put on our actual key chains are the ones that we are actually using. and i never get emails from the places i get them at, but i do sometimes get mail but it's usually coupons so i dont mind lol

It seems everywhere has them now, it annoys the hell out of me when I go to buy something and get a spiel from the sales assistant on why I should have one of their cards. The only real reason for them is to allow retailers to track how much you are spending and on what.

it also saves the stores the cost of processing the paper coupons,
and increases customer satisfaction, by removing the annoyance of
clipping the coupons, +/or forgetting to bring them to the store



i started this thread to get a quote like this

I don't do the keychains but have several cards in my wallet that I use for drug store, supermarkets and for customer rewards at restaurants. Free ice cream, desserts & cafe treats are worth the marketing spam but not discount coupons.
