90% of Americans now live within ten miles of a Walmart. Nearly four out of five of them shopped at Walmart last year. That means its customers outnumber the voters in America?s presidential election in 2012 by almost two to one.

I am proud to say I am part of the 10% that does not live within 10 miles of a Walmart.

 I bought a gallon of milk today for 64 cents from Walmart. Yes, seriously I did. And no, it wasn't expired. Maybe the cow was mad, but for 64 cents who cares really?

I now live 1.2 miles from WAlmart

A question to the board:

I recently discovered that my credit card's reward program allows you to trade points for concert tickets.  There's a disclaimer that you're "purchasing" tickets with points through a reseller, and are "paying" more points than actual face value.  Most of the listed shows are not sold out, and I could pay actual face value money (plus fees) for actual tickets.  Is it better to trade virtual money for actual tickets that essentially cost me nothing but virtually cost me more than I would or should have to pay, or do I pay actual money (plus fees) and save my virtual points for I have no idea whatever else you can get for points?

I don't know the answer to that one. But I do know our family of three is going to Italy next summer with free airfare. And almost all of our airline miles were credit card rewards rather than actual flights. I guess it really depends on the person. For me, I've always done the airline miles route.

Only if your miles are about to expire, otherwise best to get the most dollar value out of them.

Right, it's almost as though she does not like the physical appearance of certain people!

Assuming you can use the points for something else, this seems like a no brainer.
