The winn dixie grocery stores offer gas station discounts or "fuelperk points" when you use their card for certain things. A cashier told me about the baby club. Baby milk and diapers could earn us gas discounts too. I giggled and told her I exclusively breastfeed and cloth diaper so I wouldn't receive points with the club. She then told me she decided not to breastfeed so she could earn fuelperk points with formula purchases. I doubt she was kidding too :/

I sure hope there is! I dont mean it the way it sounds but you know what I mean lol It would be just awful if she really refused to breastfeed so she could earn 5 cents off at a Shell station

I've found when ppl really don't want to bf they will come up with any excuse.

Soooo.... she's spending more money on formula (we're talking $40-$50 a week in my neck of the woods) to save .05 per gallon on gas. Even if she fills a HUGE tank weekly, she's saving, oh, a buck or two a week.

That was just my thought too. I shook my grab and was like really, you could just put that $40 towards the tank and maybe get dinner after too?
