My local Walmart/Target are the same way, I still shop at Walmart moreso than Target but that's because my income level dictates where I shop. I did work at Target for 10 months a couple years ago so I'm familiar with the expectations they have there.
i dont know if that is they're specific marketing strategy, appealing to society's undesirables. They wouldnt be in business long.

I didn't mean it like that, I meant like their main selling point is low prices so as to attract more business. That's not Target's MO.

LOL @ "undesirables." Walmart's target market is not homeless people. It would be if they had money though.

I would be using Amazon more often if they used PayPal, but as I understand it PayPal is owned by E-Bay and with E-Bay as one their main competitors, well safe to say it's obvious to see why they don't accept it.

Personally I'm just more comfortable going through PayPal to complete online transactions, especially in regards to Netflix, Hulu, E-Bay, etc.

I LOVE me some Paypal. Just makes it so convenient to not have to remember my credit card every time I want to make a purchase.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

I hate how gas prices are different depending on if you're paying with your credit card or cash. I rarely ever carry cash on me.

Now I do.

Hanging out at Walmart is a thing now. When my ex lived in Indiana there was a 24 hour Walmart and if we were bored, we'd wander around at like 2am. I guess its different in Indiana than here, but there'd never be anyone in the store then. It was actually pretty nice.

When I lived in Hilton Head folks would do that too.

i try to avoid those stations. but w my usaa check/debit/atm card it doesn't matter because they refund atm fees. i rarely carry cash, i tell people who do "only drug dealers need cash, think about it"

Not only that, you have to actually go into the place to pre-pay which kind of sucks. I tried to do the cash thing for a while then I realized the gas even to go get that money at the bank made it not worth it for me.

Every now and then I'll pull out a twenty from the thing at the grocery store, but it's so lame how it's acceptable to get charged extra to use a card. I understand they carry fees, but times, they are a-changing.

Hmm, true. I do remember going to one back in college and the crowds weren't there and it wasn't bad.

The one here, it's just as nuts at all hours of the night and I'm too old to be there at 2AM to find out anymore. :P
