We're all special 

For the sake of convenience, I stopped in at Albertson's to pick up a few things. As I checked out, the cashier asked if I had my Preferred Customer card. I honestly admitted that I didn't have one. (That is the best policy, because if you do say you have one, they don't believe you and make you show it to them.) So the cashier whips out a card, swipes it over the scanner and I saved a total of $1.28. That was nice, but I have to wonder: What preference is showed to the card carrying Albertson's shoppers if they give out the discounts to any old guy off the street?
