The Show:  Is it coupons, or is it cash?

In our second segment, we look at Canadian Tire 'Money.' Some people love the stuff, and some people hate it so much that they make YouTube videos of themselves pushing it through a shredder. But love it or hate it, one question remains: Is it just a coupon, or is it just like real money? As Erica Johnson reports, the answer seems obvious, but a closer look reveals hidden subtleties.

Interesting clip from Marketplace.  Too bad Canadian Tire will not honour payment on their credit cards and at gas bars with their own money.  Are there exceptions with certain branch gas retailers in Canada where they take gas payment in full with Canadian Tire money?
