I have a love/hate relationship with supermarket loyalty cards - I hate them, they love me. The whole "Big-Brother" aspect bugs me. I call them the "We Hate Our Customers" cards. Just give me a good price on your stuff, let me give you money for it, and we'll both get on with our lives.
So, in order to find some satisfaction within this irritating system, I accessed our supermarket card account online and made a few changes:
Now, when I check out, the supermarket cashier reads my receipt and says "Have a nice day, Mr. Wondrous." I like it - it feels good inside.
My EC is less pleased when she checks out and the cashier asks "Would you like some help out, Mrs. Overspend?"
Probably need to change things back. My EC isn't too happy, and I'm nervous about that nagging honesty question in my next recommend interview.
Even if I change the loyalty card, I am not going to change my restaurant waiting name. "Table ready for Manson, Charles Manson."
