those stupid "club cards" that you need to get the sale prices on stuff at stores now days. First it was Safeway now QFC has one. If they can sell it to me at that price when I have their g@dd@mned card, whay can't they just sell it to me??!! Just pisses me off! Rant off

Then you're REALLY gonna hate "The Mark of the Beast." Only those who possess it will receive DEEP discounts on all sorts of cool merchandise. [;)]

Supposedly it saves Safeway millions now that they don't have to mail out coupon books.[rolleyes] Better get used to it cause the whole idustry(probably all large retail chains)is headed in the same direction. Someday you'll be recieving "personalized" offers on your computer and through the mail based on the use of your card. [beer] Its the next level of marketing,getting more intimate,taylored details on the target customers.Less of a scattershot approach(less wasted money and effort). Besides you don't expect them to give you the best deal without you giving them something in return......do ya?[devil]

The local Kroeger has marked up prices. The "Kroeger Card" discounted price is the same price as across the street at Albertsons. If you dont have the card, you get anal probed.

I don't like them either. I only have one since they usually have big discounts on beer with the card. FWIW Albertsons doesn't use those cards. More importantly it lets them track what you buy and gives them free marketing information.

Albertsons ownes Fred Meyer which ownes QFC

Just shop at Wal-Mart Supercenter. They have a huge grocery store PLUS you can buy DVD's Shotgun shells, a new toaster.... whatever. They have no such cards, and their prices are better than most.

I hate them too. Here in Utah we have "Smiths" a regional grocer that plays this game. Try this fun new game. Every time you meet someone new trade them your club card for theirs. In a few months you will have no idea whose card you have. Take that you info gathering creeps! Watch-Six

Well, here in Texas, Albertsons always promised that they would NEVER go to the membership card thing....well, they recently did!!!! Now every Albertson's has JACKED UP their prices and the card gets you the price that it used to be.....

I used to buy Wal-Mart's luncheon meat until I noticed all the water in their meats along with grissle. Plus I feel that I'm supporting China when I go in there. So I avoid them as much as possible. I found me a good store and didn't mind paying more. However, you should know that I've since then even left the good store and found me a health food store.

Keep shoppin at Walmart and the only choices we'll have is all that chicom garbage they offer and the goodwil,Walmart groceries or McDonalds. And everyone workin in the retail and grocery businesses will be working part-time for $9.00 an hour.

Didnt you mean deep discounts on all sorts of "HOT" merchandise? Oh crap, here I go... I tell ya. A cashless society would DEFINITELY fit the bill for "The Mark". This could be a whole 'nuther string, but what do you think will be their mark? Iris scan? Credit Card? Epidermal implant? I can hardly wait. I hope I'm dead before I have to deal with that bullshit. If ANYONE here thinks a cashless society is good. You do not belong here. Just wait...Sams' Club will be offering an Iris Scan just so you can save 3% on a bag of Doritos and an ink cartrideg refill!!!
