ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - If there's one thing I know about us it's that we like to find bargains.  In fact saving money has turned into some kind of sport.

Some of you might love the challenge but I'm losing patience.  Here's the deal.  It seems more and more stores have membership cards or something that gives you a discount on the regular price.

It drives me nuts.

Why can't I get the regular price without carrying around 30 key chain cards that must be swiped in order to get the discount.

One store told me today that if I came back and spent 30 more dollars I'd get 500 bonus points.  I don't want bonus points.  I just wanted a gallon of milk, some chips and a candy bar.

So thanks for giving me the opportunity to earn bonus points but just give me a fair price to begin with.

I'm JB and that's the way it oughta be.
