Good afternoon Glenn,
Today I purchased some items from a department store which offers those petrol discounts if you spend a certain amount, and I, for a change, actually spent enough to get one of those discounts. I then had a look on the back of the receipt at some of the offers, the least valuable of which was a free coffee…this got me thinking, 60 litres of petrol discounts is $2.40, whereas a cup of coffee is about three dollars.
In that case, why would I want to surrender the docket for the petrol discount when I can surrender it for a choice of half a dozen more valuable things?
And I wonder how much the department store marked up the prices to cover the petrol discount?
Have a great weekend Glenn!
