At the Shopette today.

.5L water bottle: $.95

1L water bottle: $1.20


Wha?

Then 6oz of roasted peanuts in a can: $4.69.

2.5oz bags of roasted peanuts: $1.00

What the hell am I missing here?

God I wish AAFES would go away and let WalMart take over. :)

dmp. WHAT many former, and present Military members fail to recognize...no matter how long we've been around is....AAFES, and the Navy Exchanges, Commissary systems are designed to MAKE A PROFIT. Luring people to fall for the TAX FREE idea ended LONG, LONG AGO.

Going to WALMART for the same products...even WITH taxes is generally Cheaper. But Don't Tell anybody!:laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:

Right - the hook is this: AAFES gives back to DFMWR! Omg - I PROMISE any company agreeing to take it over would do the same thing. AND better-serve the Military community.
