I just realised I am a sucker. This only hit me this morning when I was brushing my teeth.
You see, I have this SKII member card. They gave me up to March 3rd 2006 to redeem my gifts. I never check what gifts I am entitled to.
Sometime last week, Metrojaya had a one-day sale. Every RM100 spent in the cosmetic department, I get RM20 voucher. This is a good deal.
So, without finding out what I am supposed to get, I cepat-cepat cabut to Metrojaya.
Reach SKII counter, I don’t know what to buy because I have almost every item I need.
Took out my member card, gave it to the promoter and asked,
“How much more before I get my gift?”
Promoter : Miss, (chewah, I feel damn shiok), you need 1,600 points to get. You need to spend RM275 more only.
Me : OK, in that case, give me a cleanser and toner.
Promoter : Miss, good choice, both add up to RM270.
I was expecting a full size free gift of the essence (which cost RM375) and *plonk*, all I get is two puney size bottles. %^#@!&%
So, I had been a sucker. I suppose most of us are? Are you one of those who check your bonuslink points, supermarket member’s card points, bookshops cards, icecream cards, coffee points and any other member cards? Do you intentionally spend, spend, spend just so that you can get to the next level of ‘free gifts’?
