Have their card as well but rarely use it. I prefer my Kroger Mastercard because I not only get fuel points, but I get cash back vouchers for groceries from Kroger which my wife gets as she does the shopping, not me. Just got 125 bucks in vouchers yesterday.
My wife is in the 'Neighbors Club' and they e-mail her discount coupons for merchandise. Though I always pay the balance on all my cards monthly, the TSC card's interest rate is scary high.
Like I said previously, no tax on the pellets, I put them on my TE farm account. They do go to heat the farm house so I'm really not lying, just stretching the envelope a bit...lol
I see TSC's wild bird seed went up quite a bit. We feed the birds in the winter, keeps the cats entertained...lol They try to catch them but rarely succeed. Our cats are well feed and most are 'chunky monkeys' anyway. fat cats don't move all that fast. However, they still make good mousers and keep the barn mice under control which for me is all good. keeps the rodents out of my tractors and keeps them from munching on the electrical wires.
Dreading diesel fuel costs next year. having to increase my cost per round bale to offset that incurred cost. Have one customer that buys everything I make and has for 5 years now. he only wants 4x5 rounds, preferably in net but will take poly in a pinch. He picks them up right out of the field with his semi trailers, I just load them, usually 40 to a load and he is real good at payment too. I'm increasing my acreage a bit, fitting up an additional 10 acres right now for next year. Vernal alfalfa has went way up in cost (certified seed) as well. went from 200 a bag to 300 a bag. Might switch to roundup ready alfalfa, not sure yet. here in Michigan, to purchase Roundup Ready alfalfa you need to hold a pesticide / herbicide application license, which I have.
Besides, just bought a new 2021 Kubota Net Twine Premium round baler with all the bells and whistles on it. $43,000. I did trade in my present New Holland 450 Net Twine baler however. Dealer gave me 23.5 for mine and Kubota kicked in an additional 5 grand ag discount, plus I financed the balance with Kubota at 0 percent so it didn't hurt too bad....and I sold my New Holland 575 high capacity square bailer that I haven't used in 5 years for 12.5 cash on Tractor House. Last year I sold my old Giehl rotary rake on TH and purchased a Kuhn Master Drive rotary so all that is left to turn over is the NH discbine but I'm hesitant to sell or trade it as it's a darn good machine and easy to work on. I'd prefer having a center point mower (mine is a side pull). Center swing machines are much more maneuverable in odd shaped fields and require less passes and over cuts. Soon it will be time to service everything and put it to sleep in the barn for next season.
I mothball all the tractors except one. That one gets a 10 foot power angle snowplow on the front and a Lucknow 7 foot blower on the back for old man winter. we live 2 miles off the pavement so getting out after a snow event can be dicey. Normally, I don't put up pictures but I made an exception. As you can see, I prefer large frame Kubota diesels...
