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.
Warranties and sketchy merchants: Schwab Platinum
Price rewind: Costco
Travel insurance: Prestige, CSP
Perks: IHG, Hyatt
Rewards/Offers: Discover, Freedom, ED, BCE
Taxes/Misc: SPG

Limited value, might close: Arrival

Might add: First Tech, proper business card

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.
