As for minutes for your phone, try Safeway. I know that they carried all types of phone and gift cards a year or two ago, and they still should. If anyone can double-check me on this, please do.

I'll try, but since I use straight talk, it's not likely.

Either way, I do agree with most posters in this thread. I originally grew up with Fred Meyer and Safeway. Then when my parents dragged me to the mid-west (God knows how much I hated it there!), all that went away, and I was forced to learn the ways of Wal-Mart. As I kid, I never really was excited about Wal-Mart, but I missed my Safeway and Fred Meyer like crazy. Now that I'm back, I know what I was missing.

Try Fred Meyer electronics department. If they don't have your minutes, they'll know who will.

Their site says "Only at Wal-Mart" so you may be out of luck.

Maybe look into that?

You can't buy minutes over the air or via the internet?

I know that you can get VirginMobile phones and minutes for them at 7-11, and I believe RadioShack... you may want to look into that.

You have one in Marysville and Lake STevens up north. Walmart is a low class store. Doesn't mean I won't shop there, though for the low prices. (perhaps I'm low class)

Wal-Mart is no worse than Target as far as benefits, or at least that's what employees claim. Wal-Mart has been villified by the likes of Howard Dean and John Edwards because they contribute heavily to the Republican party, like all good businesses should do.

Yes. They are box stores that need a lot of space in a city that doesn't have a lot of space. Seattleites also love their specialty stores and all the jobs they create. Many Seattleites don't want those stores to get crushed by a superstore.

Seattle is a hilly city full of bridges, lakes and narrow blocks. Where would you put a superstore? Besides, parking is at a premium, all the bike riders couldn't handle a Wal-Mart haul anyway and the techies will just shop online.
