**Updated 23 May 2014 – Congratulations to Fahranaaz, you are our winner
Last week I told you about how I did some online shopping with Mr Price and how cute Lorelai looked in some of the outfits. (Post 1 & Post 2). Seeing that my daughters are as strangely built as I am, most of the clothing I had to return to the store. I hate returning clothing that I received as a gift or prize, because the shop assistants don’t really get that i do not have the card that paid for it, because it was a gift part.
I headed to Mr Price in St George’s Mall (Cape Town) ready for the long lunch time rows to return what I bought and maybe if we have time buy something new. I stood in the row for 15min before I was able to return anything. I handed the bag with the clothing as well as the online receipt to the cashier and told her that I would like to return theses items for a Mr Price voucher as I will be returning to buy other things from them.
She looked at me a little weird, but she smiled and took the bag from me. She continued to open every piece of clothing, look at the slip twice and then asked me the following questions:
Cashier: Where is the debit card that paid for this?
Me: I did not use a debit card to pay for the purchase I used a voucher.
Cashier: But how did YOU pay?
Me: Like I said I did not pay for this, I got it for free, I paid with a voucher.
Cashier: But how?
Me: Mr Price “the company you work for” paid for the clothing, I got it for free.
Cashier: Oh, I understand, can I please have you Mr Price card.
Me: I don’t have a Mr Price card, I received a voucher from Mr Price to spend online.
Cashier: But how?
Me: I run a blog and currently i am running a campaign on my blog. So technically you can call me a representative and that’s why it is free.
At this stage I am trying not to laugh. Needless to say the assistant manager stepped in and tried to help, she also didn’t really get how it worked, but tried to do the return, eventually the manager came over to assist and after telling her the same story. She punched in her code, asked me if she needs to keep the items, i can then look around and come find her when I’m ready.
It was a great joy returning the items, the staff were friendly. Sometimes that is all you need after being in a long row. I did not take the manager up on her offer as I like to shop in peace and not feel rushed.
Now for the part that includes you….
I borrowed the collage from The Mommy City who is also running a competition currently, it was just so pretty and perfect I could not help myself.
