Cheap Cool Cards #31: 2012 Toyota Buster Posey



These days... I rarely spend more than $5 on a single piece of cardboard for a variety of reasons:

A.  I've always been a cheapskate.

B.  I'm one of those guys who always thinks I can find it cheaper somewhere else.

C.  I love finding bargains.

D.  As a teacher, I'm on a pretty tight budget.

E.  And because it costs $60 to fill up my gas tank:



Thank the cardboard gods for cheap, cool cards.  Several months ago, I took my car in to get serviced and noticed that Toyota was giving away 4" x 6" postcards featuring NL MVP candidate: Buster Posey.

By now you know, I'm a sucker for oversized cards.  Throw in the fact that these are free promotions and it seemed sureal.  It's too bad I don't have access to Buster, because this would be sweet to get signed.

Just curious...


What part of the world are you in and what are you paying for a gallon of gas?

Last night, I paid $4.859/gallon for supreme @ Chevron in Mountain View, CA.  Is this ridiculous or what?

Happy Thursday and sayonara!

  2. $3.39 in the east side of Houston and 10 cents cheaper than that with my grocery points card. I think the average across the Houston area is $3.45/gal. That seems to be the number I see the most.

  4. $3.52 in Cincinnati. I can get it as low as $3.25 at a Sunoco next to my job. Gas prices are all over the place here but $3.52 is near the highest.

    1. Yeah, I own a Toyota Yaris... but last night I didn't fill it up. The $60 went into my TL.

      Yeah, I picked up a small stack (maybe 4 or 5) that I've slowly handed out.

  9. In Upstate NY it's hovering around 4 dollars a gallon.

  10. Northwest New Mexico, $3.89 gallon.

    I too own a Yaris. And yours either has a larger tank than mine, or you are a lot less scared of the one flashing bar on the gas gauge than I am. I'm certain I've never had to put 13.994 gallons in to fill it up.

  12. Here in central pa it's around $3.73/gallon. If I apply my GIANT FOODS gas bonus points then it drops to about $1.25 or less a gallon.

    1. $1.25/gallon? They need to bring GIANT FOODS out to the West Coast. I'm still paying in the mid to high $4 range.
