I’ve always warned people to notice their surroundings and it could pay off. And it paid off for me big time last weekend.
I was at the Best Buy store checking out when I noticed a sign near the cash register.
It read, ‘Get a $25 Gift Card if I fail to tell you about Double Rewards.’
I was at register #8 where the attendant had already overcharged me for two movies.
He had to go back and look up the prices because he wouldn’t just take my word.
Do you feel the lack of trust already?
When he got back to the counter and rang me up, he told me my total with that fake cashier smile.
Already feeling abused in this shopper/clerk relationship I pulled out the big guns.
I said, “sir, you forgot to tell me about double rewards, so shouldn’t I get a gift card?”
You could tell he was hot. His faced literally turned red.
He called his manager and about 10 minutes later I was walking out of Best Buy with an extra $25 jiggling in my jeans.
I don’t think I would’ve played the ‘gift card’ if he would’ve been more trusting!
