I received a flyer by the mail. Here is what it basically said:
“GREAT SAVINGS! Tons of reduced items and tons of bonus points!”
Now, look at the flyer:
If I buy a $10.90 bottle of wine, I get 250 points. That’s $0.25. Usable towards a future purchase, nothing less. Great savings my ass. What an incredible bargain! For the small price of selling my entire personal information - as well as my entire shopping habits - I can get twenty-five cents usable towards a future purchase.
You know, they could have at least been more honest and made it so 1 points = $0.01, but they somehow felt the need to prop it up for a good zero, to make it look like you get some kind of good bargain. “Wow, 250 points!”
I can’t believe anyone would join this stupid program.
