Never. I already know where I'm going for gas having already consulted GasBuddy first. Now in mid-morning... price spikes will alert me to a changing price shift and I will consult which of my preferred stations are still reasonably priced and head for them directly with spare cans for a tide me over fill up.

It depends upon the promotion. Maybe 40% of the time.

Convenience stores + gasoline = high prices on most everything. I almost never buy at those type places.

Occasionally, the signage will prompt me to visit the interior of the store, this occurrence is usually during long distance traveling

I read them, because I am bored pumping gas, but those ads haven't interested me in the nearly 40 years I have been using self-serve stations.

Life is ALWAYS about "THE DEAL WITHIN THE DEAL"

For example we all know the deal is my $20 for so much gas that you are selling it at . . .

HOWEVER - the smart retailer says - I also have these coupons for;glassware

money off dining at my fav restaurant

money off the local event sports or entertainment

money off Costco membership

money off the local movie theatre.

THERE should always be a deal within the deal

Or do not got there

Unless you are saving 18 cents a gallon like I just did for filling up at the station with he old look, old tanks, old technology.

I am soooooooo cheap I would not pay 5 cents to watch Niagara Falls roll uphill!!!

Sometimes.
Valero had a promo for "free" Red Box Movies with purchase of 44oz fountain drink, which I get occasionaly, so why not. Same for when they had their 12 packs of soda on sale, it is something I am getting anyway, so why not save a bit.

Only to go in and get my card to get 5 cents off a gallon at 7/11's. I never buy anything when I go in though. They jack the prices up to much on stuff when you buy from the gas stations. It's a joke.

I have to admit I had trouble with the term "promotional signage". Now it's obvious you meant advertising soft drinks, etc. I don't buy that kind of stuff so I didn't even think of it. My answer should have been never. Unfortunately, I was thinking of the price of gasoline. That's the only sign I'm interested in.

I am more likely to intentionally avoid buying anything that is advertised at the pump, especially ads on the polls around the pumps. One time I dropped something and then hit my head on the sign when I picked it up.
