    I was at a redemption center once. Does that count?

    You’d have to ask John, but I’d be all for a story about beer purchased with Green Stamps.

    What are Green Stamps?

    Now, I may be misunderstanding across a great N-S divide within English but in NY state a “redemption center” is a empty bottle return. See the Watertown, NY example:

    Is that still a reference to Green Stamps or is that another thing?

    Alan – When I saw your comment I thought of two things. First, the books of Green Stamps my mother would collect, eventually to redeem books for something like a set of four cocktail glasses.

    Then just what you mention – a place you take empty bottles.

    …the books of Green Stamps my mother would collect…”
