I purchased a few hundred dollars of the certificates, and used them
all at the Co-op.
I assume that the Co-op provides certificates at a discount because
they hope that the certificates will increase sales.
However, I always buy my groceries at the Co-op.
Thus, I came to see my participation in this program as merely transfering
funds from the Co-op to the Sierra Club. I don't think the Co-op is
any less worthy of funds than is the Sierra Club, so I lost my enthusiasm
for the program.
Am I misinterpreting? Does the Co-op perhaps get a tax break from
issuing the certificates, or something like that?
