The topic S & H stamps reminded me of how much I miss my Canadian Tire money.
When you bought things at CT they give you some play money to spend at the store. Canadian Tires has everything from gas pumps to kitchen wares, to paint, camping gear, gardening, kind of like a hardware store but with automotive repairs also. So you could collect a lot of money each year, and you could use it at the store to buy anything you want!
I miss that kind of thing here in the USA.
