I mean, sometimes, it's pretty annoying right having fliers pushed in your face. And more often than not, people just wave them away...
Well, my wife isn't such a person. She loves collecting fliers, from anywhere, at NATAS fairs, computer fairs, from kids distributing them, etc etc... To her, there's no loss. Her opinion is, just take it, you can always throw it away anytime.
So we went to Pizza Hut at HarbourFront yesterday. We were planning on having the 7 cheese loaded pizza. It's like a stuffed crust, but the crust has the added "bo luo" on top of you.
(You know those Hong Kong Bo Luo bao kinda sweet crusty topping.)
As we entered the restaurant, she grabbed a flier which was on the cashier counter. I don't know why, she just grabbed it as we were on the way in to our seats.
So we were ready to order this special pizza at the regular prices.
Cos we didn't expect any discount on it.
The pizza was $30.90 + root beer float $4.90 = $35.80
Or $42.14 after service charge and GST.
And we was fully prepared to pay this.
Then she looks down at the flier and say... "Hey look at this..."
*GASP* 40% off a la carte order of specialty pizza !!!
So we enquired if we were eligible for the promo and yes we were!!!
So after discount...
$30.90 x 6% +$4.90 = $23.44 or $27.59
A totally unexpected savings of $14.55.
What a pleasant surprise.
So lesson learnt, grab fliers whenever you can. Look at the counter for brochures. Sometimes they keep them at the cashier and after you pay you realize that there is some promo ongoing which you missed.
I wonder how many other promos I missed unnecessarily cos I've waved these fliers aside previously.
Just wanted to share this lesson to you cos I think it's pretty useful / cool.
Especially when we were all ready to pay full price for it already.
