Beth, that kind of selectivity may be standard practices with some discount programs. There's a BP near me that is part of a truck stop - The Standard BP discount card I have can not be used at the pump dispite being BP gas.

@beth it does apply! I was sent to checkout at Starbucks when many lines were full. My receipt said Target and I scanned my card on a target card scanner.

That is a good question, It works at the snack bar where they have the pretzels, but I never tried at one of the in-store Starbucks. Let me know if it works!!!!

There's a Starbuck's in my local Target. But, dang, I don't think the 5% discount applies there.

I'd finally signed up for one because of the debit option -- since I was always paying with my bank debit card anyways, I figured I might as well get the 5% discount. But oh do I get mad at myself when I forget to pay with the red card!

You would have thought something like this would have originated in Wisconsin, with all those cheeseheads!

@michaeljackson, 

I just assume that everything a retailer do is to captuer data and use it to sell me more things, so that doesnt bother me.

@Beth I have a red card too but haven't used it for discounts in a long time. I wish Target would get on board with a regular loyalty card. I tend to forget to pay the card on time so it's easier for me just to keep the balance at zero. I know they have a debit card program that tracks purchases through your debit card to give you discounts but I don't want to sign up for that one.

Just another way of collecting "Big Data" without ever giving the customer a "real incentive" for using it.

It's a Boston-based chain: http://www.cheeseboy.com

There are two particularly convenient locations: South Station (where my train arrives), and 280 Washington St., which is right around the corner from my office!
