Congrats !!  The 6% back at grocery stores is amazing ~ it would almost cancel sales tax ~ 8% for me...


Ha-Ha!  I know what you mean... sales tax here is 6% so basically for me it means tax free.  :0  Thanks for the congrats.

 

Fusion - I got $9000 to start.  I'm going to hit the luv button on day 61.  :smileyhappy:


Nice! Are you going to ask for 3x the limit?


I'd go full $25k what's the worse they can say?

8% sales tax? Where are you located?

 

Your grocery is taxed??


Don't know where pizzadude lives, but Tennessee taxes groceries at the full rate. :smileysad: :smileymad:

 

Terribly unfair on those whose money is tight. It's one thing to decide whether or not to buy a 3D TV, but everyone has to eat.

You're joking?!

 

I've NEVER heard of any taxes on foods bought at a supermarket.  That is terribly unfair.

Very true. In MA groceries and precription drugs are exempt from the 6.25% sales tax which works out good when using the 3% cashback on groceries on the BCE AMEX

The only food that;s taxed at a groceries is if its prepared food. For example, you buy lobster but have them steam it there then they charge you the 6.35% since it was prepared there. There is a reason its called Taxachusetts :smileyhappy:

Actually, I'd like some clarification on this.  What is the worst thing that could happen?  I certainly don't want to have another FR.... Ha-Ha!  Not that it'd matter, but geeezz, once is enough.  I'll probably go for the $25K anyway.  :smileyhappy:

Re: Got My Blue Cash Preferred Today!

Also, some clarification.... FL doesn't charge tax on food either sooooo, I'm a dumby.  I guess it's just a nice 6 cent on the dollar bonus!
