A great deal and a not so great deal

I had to go to The Vitamin Shoppe since we were almost out of the vitamins we get and that adrenal fatigue fighter. They had the once a day whole foods vitamins in a different brand that is normally $87.99. That was not a typo. Anyway, it expires in Jan (which is plenty of time for both of us to take them all) so they were 75% off and we got them for $22. I also had a $10 coupon so those and the other stuff came to $112 at first then after all was said and done we paid $40.77. You can't beat that. I love deals like that!

Now for the screw me. Since fuel went up the cruise lines are all charging up to $10 per person per day as a fuel surcharge. I called Carnival since fuel has dropped and their rules are that fuel has to be under $70 per barrel for 25 consecutive days for the price to change. Guess what? Due to hurricane Ike, they are dropping the fuel surcharge as of the 17th of Dec. Guess what? We get back HOME that day! I was pissed. The manager said most people are mad but the corporate president won't let them change a thing and all we can do is write and complain. That's $72 which isn't a lot in the grand scheme of things but $72 would pay for our fountain cards or be a nice credit in the stores on board.
