Default Wal-Mart

Looks like St. Roberts Wal-Mart is getting a @Murphy's Gas station.
They buy bulk but I don't think they're tied to local stations pricing.

If you have/use a Wal Mart credit card , you get a discount. Right now, you get $25.00 from WalMart to use in their store for applying for the CC.

What's the discount? I get a nickel off per Gallon if I use the AAFES CC on post. Adds up when filling up on premium gas for fast yellow.

AAFES gas has always been a rip off. Why is the price even close to local price. There is no tax on the post. So with no tax how is it the cost is even close to that off post. Also how is it anyone can get gas on post ? You must have a military is to take advantage of benefits. I do not have a AAFES credit card so I have to pay a mickle FINE for not having the credit card.

Wal-Mart wants to have their finger in every pie and get a slice of it, they need to stick to the general merchandise business that Sam founded them on.

They have so much money they don't know where to spend it next.

Talking

Help a poor American born person by spreading the cash around with donations like the old tv show the millionaire that was on in the 50's or 60's.
I like many others have spent thousands of dollars in their stores and I could use some free cash since I can't work anymore.

EVERYTHING for sale on post is that way. Can you imagine the buying power the US military has??!! Their prices shouldn't even be wildly CLOSE to vendors off-post, even BEFORE you get to the sales tax. That's why there is so much that's political about those concessions - they're truly a golden goose.
