30 gallons @ 29.9 cents per

A local supermarket has an affinty program...buy so much food and get a discount on their gas. The posted price was $2.699. I got 30 gallons for $8.97, on a cash back credit card!

Yeeeeeaa me!

Took forever, and I had to buy 25 gallons worth of gas cans.

Yeah, but I bet that if you comparison-shopped supermarkets that don't have the program, you'd find that the food you bought cost... oh, about $80.97 more than if you'd bought at a different store. TANSTAAFL!

Naaaa, not really, that's why it took forever!
The lunch wasn't free, that's what paid for the gas.
