I busted out laughing that you had to clarify this part. Haha, good times.

Well, at one store I go to, I've asked them for some of their suggestions before, and I have some mutual friends with the owner.

The other is Costco, and bums don't generally patronize warehouse clubs.
Love: IHG, Platinum, Sallie Mae, AA Plat, CSP
Like: Discover, ED, BCE, Hyatt, Arrival, Freedom
Might drop: BrooksBros, Prestige (Costco PC?)
Might add: Proper business card, CSR, Ritz, Delta Gold
Letting new accounts cool off since May
Really not sure what I'll add next or when

I'm not going for the 'stolen card' impression.


I want them to think that. :P

Oh, I know. It was just funny in context. It made it seem like every liquor store around you knew you by name and you had to make a trip to find somewhere that didn't.

You are lucky. The place close to me are complete assholes. I don't know why. I consistently spend good money there. Expensive whiskey's and the like. I tried to ask a legitimate question once about a discontinued product and we almost had an argument about it. At the same time, I had a $130 bottle in my hand to purchase. Assholes didn't say thanks, have a good night, nothing. They just aren't people friendly and most of them are just trailer trash college/high school dropouts working for their parents store.
