25.09.2013 | 積分優惠

[Volume 8 Issue 9, #1794]
打開你嘅銀包或手袋, 你可能發現裡面嘅會員卡呀優惠卡呀, 加上嚟比起你其他啲證件仲要多.. 今時今日感覺上去親邊度買嘢, 都好似(有需)要遞張會員卡, 可以儲積分或得到額外優惠, 就連街邊大牌檔都可能有呢一種玩意呀.. 我就忽然之間突發其想, 想話知道各位對呢啲所謂嘅會員積分或會員優惠, 究竟有何睇法?? 假設你正在排緊隊俾錢買嘢..
  1. 如果你前面嗰位顧客係冇會員卡嘅, 你會唔會請佢幫你碌你張會員卡, 等你可以儲額外嘅積分呢??
  2. 如果你前面嗰位顧客係冇會員卡嘅, 你會唔會願意借你張會員卡俾佢, 等佢都可以有會員額外折扣呢??
  3. 如果你冇會員卡但係你後面嗰位顧客係有嘅, 你會唔會主動幫佢碌佢張會員卡, 等佢可以儲額外嘅積分呢??
  4. 如果你冇會員卡但係你後面嗰位顧客係有嘅, 你會唔會開口問佢借張會員卡, 等你都可以有會員額外折扣呢??
我呀?? 以上全部四種情況之下, 我都肯定唔會.. 因為我實在係唔好意思同個陌生人講嘢囉, 其實更怕係俾人家兜口兜面拒絕, 呵呵!! :D
open your wallet or handbag, you will most likely find out that all your membership cards and discount cards add up to be so many more than your ID and financial cards.. it seems like everywhere we go buy things nowadays, we will probably (need to) use some kind of loyalty card for some extra perks, and even roadside stalls may have that mind you.. i suddenly have a thought about all these cards and points thingy, and a little curious about how different people view them.. imagine yourself queuing at the cashier ready to pay for your goods..
  1. if the person in front does not have a loyalty card, would you ask his or her favor to swipe your card so that you could earn some extra points??
  2. if the person in front does not have a loyalty card, would you offer to lend your card if cardholders are entitled to special discounts??
  3. if you do not have a loyalty card but the person behind has, would you offer to swipe his or her card so that the points are not wasted??
  4. if you do not have a loyalty card but the person behind has, would you borrow his or her card so that you are entitled to members-only special discounts??
how about myself then?? definitely it will be negative for all the four situations above.. because i am too shy to talk to a stranger, but actually more worry about the awkwardness if being declined, haha!! :D

    3. Please wear a mask like me to be thick skin. When your face is nipis, how to be a salesman? I realised many people are easily shy and will miss out opportunities!

      Delete
    4. exactly!! but really shy to do that lah, sekali kena rejected on the face then very embarrassing dei~~

      next time must bring Anay along lah, he sure is a very thick skin person and we will have no problem getting perks.. but dei, we are not salesman lah~~

  3. Option b.
    If she/he asks around. I'm not that friendly to be offering cards to random people. Hahaha

    1. i actually don't mind lending if he/she ask.. cos i won't rugi also lah, can earn points if i lend the card.. :p

      Delete
    2. Yeah! I will check her goods first before flash out my card otherwise she buys only RM10.00..... :yawn~yawn"......

      Delete
    3. yeah.. my eyes will only blink when it's at least RM100 lah, if only RM10 get just that few points, don't waste time..

      Delete
  4. Option C.
    Nope.

    But I've had people offering me to get my card swiped as they pay theirs. Good eh? :-P

    Replies
    1. i won't bother to do that also lah.. unless the other way round, people ask if i want to swipe my card with their purchase :p

      Delete
    2. This never happened to me. Where on earth got so many kind people to offer me this??

      Delete
    3. Anay has been accumulating lots of good karma and credits for doing so many charity work.. sure there will be kind people to return his kindness.. :)

      Delete
  5. Option D.
    Dang! I'm too lazy to bother if its strangers. But usually, I'd borrow friends cards if I know I'm going shopping to those places I don't have loyalty card.

    I've asked friends to tag along to pay with their credit cards too because I don't have that one card that gives discounts at that particular shop. Most times, they don't mind. :-)

    Replies
    1. hahaha.. seems like i have little chance of doing that, because i think i seem to have all the loyalty cards for the places i often patronized.. i think win win situation also lah if we know there's a discount and we invite the cardholder together, haha!! :D

      Delete
    2. I don't like to bring all my cards but usually, ended up wanting to go to places that I had left the loyalty cards behind. Adui

      Delete
    3. I realised I am not a shopping queen like some aunties. i hardly swipe my Aeon card and regretted for paying card to join Watson!!!!! I kena sweet talked by that aggressive sales people at Watsons and Tesco but never used them as they are too thick to be kept in my wallet. The points accumulation by that hyper market is stupid and I could die laughing at my stupidity to sign up without doing the maths. The one who died laughing was none other than Letchumy la.

      Delete
    4. my wallet is too small to keep all the cards together.. i just bring along a few that i use more frequently, the others just campak inside my bag lah..

      i got that Watson card because i cannot stand the ongoing nagging whenever i buy something from the shop!! and i thot, just take and let my ears rest from sufferings forever.. else, i wouldn't have paid RM12 for the card.. those free ones i don't mind applying if they offer good discounts..

  6. I remember kukubird earned a few thousand J-Card points before because a stranger asked him whether he has a J-Card, right? :-D

    2. lina has good memory, I can vividly remember that he mentioned this before as well.

    3. yes, i remembered that also this kukubird either comment here or we chatted in Whatsapp..

    4. I really wished I can believe his jokes! Half of the time he talked cock and craps to entertain us. He looked at us like suckers! Muahahahahahahahaha

      Delete
    5. ah yes, i think so.. thousands of RM worth of wine.. errr, but i think he wasn't joking or talking cock about that incident.. i kind of believe him dei.. others, i suspected~~ :D

  7. Well, I won't do that too. But my husband would but only from someone he knows who happened to be nearby.

    1. I hardly use loyalty card except for Popular and Voir.

      Delete
    2. yeah, i think i will likely do that if i know the person.. but to strangers, i don't think i will do that..

      Delete
    3. Now this got me thinking and I just discovered that my wife used her Popular Card the most monthly with huge & extra discount savings for teachers!!

      As for me, I swiped the Borders discount card the most, also on monthly basis. Their card can be shared and just need to give out your ID card number. You mau ka Thambee??

      Delete
    4. ah, if you are going there often to buy things, i guess it makes sense to have the loyalty card to get big discounts.. but i don't buy books from Borders or Popular dei, even with discounts, never cheaper than BookXcess also, hahaha!! :D

      Delete
  8. When I dont have, normally the one behind or in front of me will offer.. few times I experienced.. but I never offer to others unless they want it.. cos they might reject me on the face.. then I might look very "tamak" like that..
    But if got discount offers, i will offer to others if the person don't have.. like that, I dont look tamak but generous.. hahahaha...
    So in conclusion, I dont do things to embarrass myself ... kiasu ma.. hahaha..

  9. Let it to me. I am so thick skinned! I have done it several times. I offered my goods purchased to be swiped for points by the customer in front of me who looked friendly enough. he bought just RM20+ but mine was over RM200+. He smiled broadly from ear to ear.

    I have the loyalty member's card but I seldom carried it. You know lah, my wallet was full of plastic cards. I think I need 2 wallets in future.

    Replies
    1. Typo error above (Leave it to me)*

      I only have 3 discount membership cards at the Borders Books, GNC and a Hair Shop. They just require my IC if I do not carry any plastic cards with me. I like their trust and convenience. Why can't others do the same?

      Delete
    2. Option A: If the buyer in front has goods purchased over a RM100, I would surely ask him/her to swipe my card and not be a fool to waste the points. I would cheekily offer a sweet to this buyer!

      Delete
    3. Option B: I would look at it as doing charity, so I will offer my card with discounts for that buyer. Hope the Choi San Yeh will bless me bountiful and abundant wealth the following year!

      Delete
    4. Option C: I think I would poke the guy behind and ask him/her to lend me the card! Why waste the points? What goes around will come around, right!!!

      Delete
    5. Option D: I will not bother to do it as I know I would get a negative stare instead! Better save my face if not kena maluation. Muahahahaha

    6. so anay is actually not a shy people to offer or to get help from, even from strangers.. thambee feel shy in the case of strangers, but if that's somebody i know, then another case lah..

      A: i am always tempted to do that, but then never tried before..

      B: i won't take the initiative to offer, but then if he/she asks for it, i would be more than happy to lend..

      C: i won't do this also, unless he/she ask for the favor and i do not mind swiping for him/her..

      D: haha, i will be very tempted to do this if i'm going to save money.. sometimes the cashier will also help to ask around to help customers save money too.. :)

      Delete
    7. D. Yes, seen that. If the cashier is nice and also the customer is nice too. If customer doesn't treat cashier nice and be friendly, don't think the cashier will want to ask around also. ;)

      Delete
    8. yeah, i just love nice and helpful cashier.. especially ladies, be very friendly, borak about something gossipy and bodek them a bit and they will be very nice to help.. :p

  10. But i think it comes naturally when we are paying and if we do not have any royalty card, the person behind us usually automatically offers us theirs and we sometimes do the same too...

    1. errr, this does not happen to me at all if i can remember, haha!! maybe i do not look like a friendly person to them, so they don't offer to help or dare not ask for help~~ :D

    3. yeah, this STP doesn't need any card lah.. he is such a famous person in Sibu and everyone will be happy to give him discounts.. and like TM said, gifts keep flying in from all over the places just for him..

  12. A.. nope for me. Not hard up for points to that extend. But if it is my friend then I would consider doing that la

    2. I have friends who ask to borrow discount cards for bookstore and jusco. Hentam let them use lo.

      But if strangers may have to be careful a bit la coz sometime the the receipt print out will have personal information attached.

      I like it if the store will put card num 12344xxxx . Meaning doesn't print the full card num nor cardholder name

      Delete
    3. but then this doesn't make sense right?? if you are the one paying, then you are the one keeping the receipt right?? you just borrowed their card, so they won't know what you did correct or not?? or i didn't get what you mean??

      Delete
    4. But I thought now they don't display all the numbers on the receipt? Name yes la...

      Delete
    5. most of the receipts probably only display the last few digits, some don't even display at all.. name on receipt?? never, but on the credit card transaction slip lah..

      Delete
  14. C. Same as answer b.

    There was once or twice the sales person swipe their friends family members card. I know not supposed to la . But hentam la. Win win. She gets the points I get the discount.

    Many yrs ago when buying mooncake the sales person ask me to buy and if hv certain card can get extra discount. I told her I don't hv that card n she offered me hers or someone from ger family punya card.

    1. yalah, win-win situation so no harm doing that at all.. yeah, if the cashier or salesperson is helping then i really do not mind as long as i got the discounts, i don't care how it's done~~ result is more important than the process, haha!!

  18. Option A: if the person in front does not have a loyalty card, would you ask his or her favor to swipe your card so that you could earn some extra points??

    No to this one for the simple reason that I do not earn the points, thus the points are not due me.

      If it's a big amount, I would ask but if it's small, I wouldn't make a fool of myself. :O

      Delete
    3. Option D: if you do not have a loyalty card but the person behind has, would you borrow his or her card so that you are entitled to members-only special discounts??

      Would not for the same reason as Option A.

      Delete
    4. I once read that using another's loyalty card is a criminal offence. The article reported about someone facing a severe penalty for accumulating points from customers who did not have the loyalty card. This is an extreme case, of course.

      But I would still lend my loyalty card if being asked. I once did that at a bookstore making the other person all smiles. She got a good discount from the books she bought. I was happy too being able to help.

      Delete
    5. One loyalty programme that really makes me happy is the one issued by the dhoby. I get a 10% off after spending one hundred ringgit. Not a big sum, I know, but it saves me from ironing myself. :p

      Delete
    6. A: always tempted to do that, but only just a thought.. too shy to take action..

      B: i will not take initiative, but if they ask then i am more than happy to lend..

      C: yeah, i won't offer that too unless they ask for the favor..

      D: definitely not, as this would need a very "thick skin", i am too shy to do that..

      oh, really?? there is such a terms in the membership rules and regulations?? but then in this Bolehland, who cares?? hahaha.. :p

    3. SK,
      I just told the cashiers I probably won;t shop at Watson again every time they push the card to me. LOL

      BUt cannot blame them la. If they don;t ask, later kena marah by supervisor. Sudah masuk dalam SOP to greet customer when at cashier counter mah. Must follow wor.

      Delete
    4. haha, i guess a lot of us just took the card because we can't stand all the nagging.. Mak Glam ada gut lah, just told them off.. but i also understand that's part of their job lah, so no harm to take one and my ears won't have to suffer every time..

      Delete
  20. All the above four options, I think I will accept all. Means, I will lend people my card, I will also borrow people card. I don't mind at all, as long as that person is kind and polite enough to me.

  23. I wanna cry dei. I just recalled that I have thousands of points from bonus Link and I have lost its card since last year. I must quickly go and get a new car replaced otherwise it might expire.

    The stupid Shell station's cashier near my old condo often swiped his own Bonus Link when the customers do not have this card. Can you imagine how many thousands of ringgit per day he manage to swipe for himself when customers all pumped over RM70-150 of petrol each time!!!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. aiyoh, quickly go and get your new bonus link card, the points can be converted to money dei, don't thrown them away!! and yeah, i think that cashier must be rich earning bonus link points from his customers huh?? sure he has redeemed a lot of things with all those free points..
