Most of the stuff they sell is expensive but I have been known to buy coffee for the long haul.

Convenience stores generally make more on the $1.69 bottle of pop than they do the tankful of gas.

My local convenience store has a 59-ounce bottle of Tropicana Pure Premium for $4.99. But I get a 5% credit card rebate on it because it's a purchase at a place that sells gasoline. You can buy the same thing at Kroger for $3.88 with a 6% credit card rebate. If they have it at Walmart, you can probably buy it there for even less but then who wants to go grocery shopping at Walmart? Only a 1% credit card rebate at Walmart, that cancels most of their pricing advantage over the local stand-alone supermarkets. I only go to Walmart when I need to get something that they don't sell at H-E-B, Kroger, or Target. I've learned that Walmart has made-in-the-USA Fruit of the Loom mens' socks so I go to Walmart to buy my socks.
