You know how when you're checking out your merchandise and the cashier asks you, "Do you have a [fill in the blank] card?" your first reaction is, "Just check out my groceries and let me get the hell out of here."?
Next time they ask you that question at a Hallmark store, CVS or Kroger, think twice before saying no. You can actually save money with these cards.
I occasionally get coupons in the mail from Hallmark for anywhere from $5 to $10 off my next purchase as well as all kinds of other special offers. If you have a CVS card, be sure to watch your receipts. Your "Extra Care Dollars" are at the bottom of your receipt and you will sometimes get them through e-mail. With your Kroger card, you not only save money on groceries, you can also save money on gas.
These are the only three cards I use regularly. If you have others you like, let us know in the comments.
