$5 Reimbursements

I see that I had gotten off topic. The topic was $5 reimbursement. I was thinking of the grocery shops that I do that offer a fee and $9, $15, and $20 reimbursement. I will do the Aldi, which offers a fee and $5 reimbursement, but only if it's like super convenient. I probably pass on the them more than I accept them.

The Lidl shops offer a whopping $1 reimbursement. I did the shop in November and still have not been reimbursed. I was paid for the shop.

I don't think I've seen an Aldi shop. I need to figure out who has those. I'd like to see a Lidl shop. That's where I normally go. In any case... what I really want (speaking of nutrition and nutritious food items, but OT) is to figure out how to get a Vitamix. ::drool::

I am not disagreeing with anyone here. When I stayed with my daughter in SLC 2017-2018, we lived within 3 or 4 miles of 7 grocery stores that were shopped. I happily did every one of them, week after week, and after working all day! There was generally a "required" purchase that left room in the reimbursement for one or two staples for the pantry. I used the required purchase at the deli to pack lunches for my daughter and son-in-law.

I carefully explained to them how the reimbursement wasn't taxable income to me, and by working for MSCs with fast pay, I could "turn" that initial out-of-pocket over again and again and again.

They both worked full time. They ordinarily spent $7-$10 a day on lunch. Each. Or, looking at it another way, $70-$100 a WEEK on lunches. With housing costs in SLC so high, student loan debt, buying a car, health insurance, a new baby, etc., my grocery store shops allowed them to direct an additional $300 a month to their student loan debt, enabling them to pay it off several years earlier than just making the minimum payments (minimum payments actually result in a life-time of student loan debt slavery, LOL). And the shops cost me NOTHING. (I will add, I offered to pay them rent, and they didn't want it, so this was my "way" of contributing.)

However, as I stated above, I now live 45 miles from the nearest shop. What worked in SLC does not work in rural Nebraska.

I now understand why I get more of a choice of shops to take in SLC winking smiley
I was looking for an Aldi shop and emailed the company that used to do them, but no longer do. So I am looking. I'll find them.... smiling smiley
I did a housewares store last week for a bonus. I was able to buy an item I wanted for my house and I still had a nice fee for my bank account.
