Bananas understands that ‘loyalty‘ (my blog) is liked in retailing but with deals for ‘special’ people and some of those dubious (example: buy the old xbox now when a better model is in the works for christmas as an example) might make business sense but somehow appears to be the opposite i offer as an opinion.
I am not jealous (an xbox is a piece of crap imho nor do think the other one is any good either) and I guess very few items will be sold unless clearing stock is the idea for the retailer.
Anyhow if people do buy over the odds for the item since one ‘shop’ is selling it as members of a club it is not for me to criticise them after all they are responsible for themselves.
The monkey house likes to compare things first, and as not members of the club we be most happy not to buy an item from it if the shop refuses to sell it to us. I do hope you club members meet the retailers expectations it has of you.
