That's the way to go. A little over a year ago I thinned out the anubias jungle in my tank and traded them in for store credit at my LFS. Prety much every fish in my tank now is a result of that store credit. Plus I gave a free plug in one of my YouTube videos to the store. So I get very good treatment from the owner when I go in there.
