[Volume 7 Issue 4, #1392]
每次去屈臣氏買嘢, 啲職員一定冤鬼纏身咁叫你申請會員卡.. 經過無數次不勝其煩之後, 為免夜長夢多, 日前終於妥協拎咗張!! 本來以為有價值RM200優惠固本可以值回入會費, 點知發現全部都係唔等駛嘅垃!!圾!! 好啦, 再上網啟動張卡, 結果死都要我接受「本人同意讓屈臣氏使用本人所提供的資料與選擇渠道聯絡本人」呢個條款(仲有屎到流嘅文法我都未講)!! 咩道理呀?? 我想保留私隱唔要被聯絡都唔俾?? 真係買張垃圾返嚟阻掟~~ @_@
every time at watson's, the staff will sure hard-sell their members card to customers.. after many times of decline, i got irritated and to stop those further nagging i finally gave up and took one.. at first i thought with the RM200 worth of vouchers it's worth the fees, but only to find out all vouchers are useless rubbish!! ok, and when i wanted to activate the card, the website won't get through unless i accept the "you agree watsons to use the information provided by you and the chosen channels to contact with you" clause (not to mention the lousy grammar they use)!! WTF??!! can't i have my privacy and not to be contacted?? it feels exactly like buying a piece of rubbish for nothing~~ @_@

  4. The same goes with all those free PA which pay RM10,000 upon your death in car accidents! So many silly people signed up and typed in the full personal details for a free PA. Ha ha ha all the bigots trick people.

    1. i think they put in clauses in those fine prints (that we never bother to read) to include our consent to allow them to use the provided information..

      Delete
  5. They can sell your database from RM10 to RM100 depending on how detailed the info. That is where and how telemarketers make calls to sell you stuffs.

    1. yalar, i know they are selling the database.. so not ethical!!

  6. How do I know all this? I used to work in a huge database management company which comes with a big call center. Of course we didn't recruit data from the public but our clients did.

    1. that's how it happened..

  7. 因为他们要sms你!
    不要说这些公司 连银行都是这样
    每次我一问 "how you get my number?"他们就会马上挂电话了 其实哦 侵犯隐私是不是触犯法律的呢?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 哦, 原來問一句"how you get my number?"他們就會馬上掛電話嗎?? 那好, 我下次也要試.. 其實他們在那些terms and conditions偷偷加了這些允許他們用我們的聯絡資料喇~~

    2. Bank很注重形象的吧?去偷用别家银行顾客的资料??合法都丢脸啦!

    1. I prefer Guardian too.

      Delete
    2. yalor, actually i think this card is really quite useless.. because i also go to Guardian more..

  9. Makes me wonder if the staffs get incentive for each card signed.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. i think most probably they get incentive for selling the cards, else they won't be so dedicated to hard-sell..

    1. 所以我都冇繼續.. activate會俾你200分, 不過200分先換得RM1.. 有屁用呀??

      Delete
  25. Oh, I didn't own any cards :D

    No Watson card, no Tesco card, no telco prepaid card, no credit card, kekeke!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. wow, are you sure?? i would have thought you must be owning a lot of those membership cards and discount cards leh.. haha!! :D

      Delete
    2. No la, I dislike the bulky-ness in my wallet so no this and that card.

      Sometimes the boutiques I visit give me their membership card after purchase of RMxx amount - I just keep at home too :D

      Delete
    3. No discount card, because I always wait for those YES (year end sales) whereby the discount hits 70% and I would grab the stuffs ready for CNY, hehehe....

      Delete
    4. actually true also lah.. nowadays, it seems like sales is on every month like that.. no need those discount cards lah, also cannot used with promotions what..

      Delete
  26. Ok, ok, I have a Tesco card but not registered under my name. It belongs to my sister, I visit Tesco more than her, thus she passed me the card to collect points.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. sometimes good also to share the cards because you will concentrate the points in a single card, then can claim prizes quicker..

      Delete
  27. Same like Watson's, Tesco will send quarterly "items voucher" which is kinda useless. I only use the cash voucher.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yalor, those vouchers just make you spend more only.. i also prefer cash vouchers lor, more practical..

      Delete
  28. I shop in Watson's, like, twice annually (?) and the staff would promote their card whenever I checkout.

    I'm very good at resisting those promotion :D

    "Tak mau, jarang guna", that's my reply.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yeah, initially i also answered that.. but few times already i really cannot take it, so i compromise to intending to shut them up only..

      Delete
  29. Eh, have to manually activate that Watson's card? How can? Macam la so high tech like ATM card.

    How about the benefit? Got discount when purchasing stuff from Watson? Or just collect points for redemption later? Or simply can enjoy the "members' day" privilege?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. dunno lah, still can collect points, just that activated already you get extra 200 points lah.. but that 200 points only equals RM1, so cheap lah.. paying us RM1 to use our contact information for their marketing?? lame..

      Delete
    2. 200 points for RM1?? Tsk, tsk, at least give 200 points for RM2, wakakakaka!

      Delete
    3. an la, so little rewards not tempting at all, who wants woh??

      Delete

  40. 哈哈哈~~~我当时都係冇端端花咗唔知几多钱买咗张会员卡。

    ReplyDelete
  41. 赞同你所讲嘅優惠固本全部都係唔等駛嘅垃圾!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. 卒之我一张優惠固本都冇用过,等同废纸,见到都眼怨!

    ReplyDelete
  43. 係囉,有诚意优惠明益会员嘅就应该每次持卡购物都有折扣!

    ReplyDelete
  44. 下下碌会员卡换分数,不如直接回扣现金比较实际囉!

    ReplyDelete
  45. 查实又见得啲会员卡又乜真正著数,都係收集每次顾客购物嘅资料啫!

    ReplyDelete
  46. 如果每次畀区区小钱就可以买到张会员卡,之后每次都比原价便宜,我睇啲商家都排队执笠囉!

    ReplyDelete
  47. 话时话,屈臣氏啲价钱都唔会便得去边,有啲仲比市价贵添!

    ReplyDelete
  48. 我都係贪方便,先至帮衬佢架!

    ReplyDelete
  49. 我张会员卡已经有几个月冇碌过,所以想赚屈记嘅,都係唔知几难囉!嘿嘿嘿~~~
