Its not "a few dollars". For my family of four, soda cards for all of us would cost $125. Plus the cost of bottled water to take on shore with us at $3.50 a bottle. So you are talking $150 for $10 worth of soda/water. These items used to be free on a cruise.

Like I said earlier, I don't bother and its not worth the trouble/hassle unless I am driving to the port. But if I am driving, I'm not against saving $150 even though I spent $2500 on a cruise.
