How often you can give out personal information? I don't use reward cards because nobody can tell me what I personally buy can help them.
I was at Burlington Coat Factory and the woman asked me for my phone #. I told her she didn't need it. So she asked for my zip code. Same response. Rose was with me and bought something as well. Same questions and same answers. She said that she guessed we didn't want any coupons. I asked the woman how that information will help her. She said that they can pull up your address from your phone records. She said "You do get your phone bill in the mail, don't you?" I told her that Ihad it emailed to me. She got angry and said never mind. I guess that they clerks get a bonus for how many people they can get information on.
My DD was in Payless to get shoes for her and her son. When she was asked for her phone # she told them she didn't need it; then zip code with the same answer. So they asked for her email address. She said that all she wanted was to buy a pair of shoes. The clerk said that the register wouldn't work without some of this information and asked again. DD restated that all she wanted was a pair of shoes. She was ready to leave the store when a manager came over and showed her how to use the register.
So next time I clerk asked just think about how much information you are giving away.
Have a great Sunday.
