While driving through New Hampshire my car came to a screeching halt as I drove by this gas station and I saw this sign. This u-turn queen responded accordingly. Would have been even better if.............
I lived and grocery shopped in NH. For every $50 in groceries purchased at this Shaw's grocery store and using your customer card (Vermont stores do not participate because we have no Irving gas stations), you receive 10 cents off per gallon. You can accumulate your credits over a period of two months with a maximum fill-up of 20 gallons. So, if you purchase $100/wk. in groceries, at the end of two months you would get a $1.60 off per gallon for that one fill-up.
Dunkin Donuts also participates. For every $20 you accumulate on your card, you receive 5 cents off per gallon.
These customer cards cost nothing and prices at the grocery store have not been inflated.
My car was quite happy to be fed caviar i($1.67 in NY) instead bologna ($1.92 in VT).
New Hampshire has no sales tax and no state income tax. I suppose that property taxes are probably pretty high to support the state. I'm sure that both Alison and Brian can clarify that point.
More later on my yarn shopping adventure and the laughter that commanded that I pull off the highway if this was going to be a safe trip.
It's been a good weekend and I hope yours has been also. This gal has to go eat breakfast and wind some yarn.
