    From A 7-Eleven Sales Associate

    From Redditor /u/StayUpAllNight

    Coffee, soda, and Slurpee refills are all the same price no matter the size of your cup. As long as you aren't doing something retarded like trying to fill a gallon jug with coffee, it only costs 1.06$. Although we advertise 32 or more ounce refills as costing more, the cash registers don't actually have a function to charge more for a refill, and none of us are going to sit there and void/override the price just to charge you another 22 cents.

    90% of store brand products are name brand products or taste better. Example: Our store-brand Oreos were actual Oreos.

    Wawa's Bowl Tip

    From Redditor /u/TransFattyAcid

    When you're under "Hoagie Bowl", they don't have an option to put cheesesteak meat on it. But you can order a classic cheesesteak hoagie and hit the "Special Order" button. If you ask, they'll make it into a hoagie bowl for you.

    Gas Station Don’t

    From Redditor /u/Violet_Plum_Tea

    Never touch gas station food unless it's shelf stable and arrives to the gas station in a securely sealed package. So, go for the cookies, chips, candy, crackers, beef jerky, etc.

    Don't touch anything that is opened and "prepared" on site, especially anything that sits out in a warmer bin or pot. Especially not nacho cheese sauce.
