When I was at Woollies last week, I “earned” 1 Lion King Ooshie and when the attendent handed it to me, I wondered why she initialed the receipt.
My wife saw comments on social media yesterday regarding some woman who posted how she picked up a discarded Woolies receipt for a large sum, went into the store and claimed the toys,and then posted it on Facebook, following which Woollies instructed all staff that they had to initial all claimed receipts much to the outrage of other consumers.
Whilst at Woollies today when I “earned” 2 Ooshies, the attended handed them to me and initialed my receipt.
I asked her if it was true regarding staff having been instructed to initial all claimed receipts which she confirmed and she said that the Facebook poster “had spoiled it for all of us”.
Anyone would think that Woollies were handing out $20 notes instead of 2 cent toys.
At least Coles have not stooped to this new level of cheap.
