At the Tokyo Japanese Store here in Pittsburgh, where I get most of my Japanese groceries, they give you a stamp on your stamp card for every ten dollars in merchandise you buy. When you get 50 stamps, it’s a $10 coupon for the store. That’s only a 2% rebate on groceries, but everybody knows the real value comes from collecting the cute little stamps they use. They change them out every week, and must have a huge box full of hundreds of them at home. Here’s one I completed earlier this year, but did not want to use until I got a scan of it.
