Yesterday, I went to one of the biggest mall in Kelana Jaya.
Her friend, (the other promoter) called the headquarter to find out the truth. When they went through the system, they were actually giving away 10 free vouchers that offer a free set of electric kitchen burner! So, I was one of the lucky 10. The thing is, I didn't feel so lucky because, in order for me to get the free gift, I have to buy one of the other products. All of the other products cost about more than RM3000! In fact, the promoters encouraged me to take the set of pots and pans that costs about RM3589. They kept trying to influence me by saying that I can pay only about RM1,200 first and bring back the electrical kitchen burner. Then, I have about one year to finish the payment. Plus they promise me that I will get another free gift from the participating bank. Another free gift was the hydro vacuum cleaner. I didn't know how to react or tell them that I was interested with the offer BUT........................my biggest problem was of course the money. Then, the other problems were I didn't know where to keep those things as I'm still living with my in-laws and my hubby wouldn't like the idea of buying these things which cost like a fortune for us (at least for now).
At last, I felt like there was a big lump when they said if I'm not interested with the gifts, I have to cancel the voucher. I really hate the way they treated me yesterday. After I told them that I might not have enough money for now, they kept pressuring me and lastly gave me an impermissible look like they were saying "What a loser!".
Am I regretting my decision now? Well, NO because I have my own valid reasons not to agree with that cheap business tactic. Plus, I don't think I need a RM3000 kitchen burner to cook or a special hydro vacuum cleaner or set of pots and pans that costs about RM3589!
