    Sarcastic?? Cuz I HATE Wal-Mart & avoid going there at all costs! I prefer Target. And this year I am going to Giant Eagle, getting Visa gift cards to save $$ on gas & then using them to shop online Cyber Monday.

    I think I just heard on the morning news that a judge told them they can't do it.

    I haven't heard anything about it in Idaho. But then again Idaho is a right to work state so I can see Walmart firing a ton of people and putting on a job fair.

    Yep- hope they realize being non union they are pretty much giving up their jobs more than likely.

     I was not trying to be sarcastc.  Just lately everyone is going on strike, it is just crazy.  It's not like I'm a big shopper of Walmart or anything, I only go there for a few things.  What is Giant Eagle? never heard of them.

    Wow... guess I thought Giant Eagle was all over. Well then again... I guess I also figured cafemom was for the USA & now I know it's not.

    Giant Eagle is a grocery store chain. For every so much you spend in groceries you save a percentage off in gas there. They also sell prepaid Visa gift cards. Tthe more you buy the more yyou save (I swear I think that's even part of the commercial! LOL). I have a friend who has filled up his Ford F150 for free several times this fall! And when you purchase gas you save on food too!

     Oh nice!  I live on the east coast and I have never heard of them. My family also drives across country for our vacations and I have never noticed a Giant Eagle, will have to keep my eye out for it.
