Since I was there, I intended to look for any holiday voucher promotions and was pleased to see that not only are they again offering these 4 pack vouchers, the cost was on discount @ $99/4 pack vs the usual $114. I bought 2, 4 pack vouchers or spent $198 for my car washes for the upcoming year. Minimally, I go once a month. Since I was off work due to medical recovery, I have a few leftover vouchers from this past year. Toss in that one month will include a birthday wash freebie (I will most likely again choose to pay the additonal amount for "the works"). The 10th wash is also a freebie. So, I figure that I only need to pay for 10 washes, not 12, with any upgrade service being an added on "extra" for me to cover.
8 "the works" washes is normally $240, I spent $198 or $24.75 for a normally $30 service, saving $42 in the process or $5.25/month/per wash I pay for. I now have 14 vouchers on hand + 2 ancipated freebies (birthday and 10th wash is free) so 16 months of car wash services. This is especially helpful come Summer, when I do not draw a salary for 2 months, and we rely upon monies set aside. With my OT issues, is has become essential that I pay for this service, and I have found an economical way to do so, supporting a local franchise in the process.
Next on the car care list: get what they call a "mini detail." This would include:
I will have had my car one year, come Christmas time, so I am planning on doing this at that time. It's approx $55, but worth it, as a maintenance cost.
