    I don't understand what the big deal is about running license plates. I've read through the entire thread and I just don't get it. Who is it going to hurt if they run everyone's license plate? Not me, maybe not you...only those who have broken the law and they need to be caught...

    So true. That's how those instant coupons they print out with your receipt know exactly what you're likely to buy next time.

    Just bought half of a Belted Galloway (oreo cow) from a friend who ranches. No discount card required!

    Of course, Bon's 42 cent daily purchases are likely to raise suspicion....
    I grocery shop at Whole Foods...a touch more expensive but better quality produce, most of my supplements are Whole Foods brand 365...

    Call my doctor, I'm agreeing with Gibson again!!
    If you can sell me the shrimp for $4/lb, then please do it without me having to have a data card

    You might rethink that a little if you had read the article about the founder of WFMI. But I do agree with his comments on Organic stuff. The best place to shop for good produce is a Farmers Market, closer to the land with no middlemen . Generally picked that AM or the evening before. Puritan Pride for supplements, mail order.

    As for the original topic, if you have nothing to hide why be concerned?

    Looks like a male to me - the term cow is reserved for females who have given birth. & just when you thought you knew it all .

    the founder of WFMI is an Austin Tx liberal...but since they bought out the competition in Wild Oats, dont exactly have any choices...and Farmer's Market is the only place to shop when in SoCal

    This has nothing to do with license plates.......just electronic "snooping" so to speak. A cousin shopped at one store where you use the little card for the special prices. When they did the peanut butter recall she got an automated phone call. She had bought a jar of that brand of peanut butter ( it was not one of
    the sale items however). Her purchases were all on record each time she used the card. In this case it was a good thing.
