As some of you may know, I’m a big believer in gift cards, especially gift cards that can be traded for hot dogs, gas or cigarettes. I have on several recent occasions wanted to buy someone a gift card to Wawa, because in the Philly area there is a Wawa roughly every quarter of a mile from wherever you are currently standing. Wawa, however, charges a ridiculous service fee to send someone a gift card so they can buy merchandise on which the average profit margin is about 7000%. Sheetz, however, charges nothing extra and ships the card for free! And on top of that they have Death Dogs, MTO’s, breakfast sandwiches, and generally a nicer atmosphere and selection than Wawa. Sheetz also started out in the great city of Altoona, PA, which is of course of paramount importance. (Warning, obscure reference in the next sentence.) Rocky would be astounded at the sheer number of beverages available in the typical Sheetz. The moral of the story? If you want to send someone a gift card to a convenience store (good for you!), send them to Sheetz.
