My feet get sweaty and I like the control of going barefoot.

When I drive I wear the shoes in my icon. Fair trade, union, vegan shoes that're made like the nike stuff. Very thin and flexible, but prevent the pedals from digging into my foot.

Just kicked 90 bucks of stuff off the list that I don't need with plan C. I guess I have to make up some random stuff to buy at autozone to get my rewards card.

I guess I can buy that oil, some soap, mehbe they'll have a sleeve for my radio. I wanted to use the rewards card on some vice grips, I guess I can just expand my socket collection, but first I need a socket holder, mehbe I'll buy an impact gun, la la la, I'll just spend the minimum and save some money for a rainy day.

I used to try to spend more in order to get the $20 minimum at autozone. That's the beauty of their program.

let's say I am going to spend $15. I'll spend an extra $5 (on something I really don't NEED) to make $20. I just spend $5 in order to save $4 in the future ($20 gift card divided by 5 purchases). This is also assuming that each purchase on the card is exactly $20. Often times I will spend $30, which is a wasted $10 IMHO.

The only way to really gain anything using the gift card is to NOT spend extra in order to get the gift card. Spending extra negates any marginal benefit from the gift card you're trying to earn.

Of course if you are able to break up your $50 purchase into two purchased above $20 each you're better off doing this as well.

Don't worry, I know how to scam works, the fact that it benefits both parties makes me not care.

Plan C.
