Coop SuperCard

Mine came through the post this morning and I've just been flipping through the catalog to try to decide what to spend my future points on.

Lets see who can guess how much you need to spend at the supermarket to get the 19" non branded TV........

Re: Coop Super Card

Yes, the Coop Super Card doesn't just give you super offers I usually buy the cinema ticket vouchers...

Re: Coop Super Card

they're a rip off,if you calculate the real retail price of the items versus the money you spent to reach that amount of points, I can get hubby to order them cheaper for me, should I really need that stuff.

Ok I'm a biased , am a Migros girl,but let's face it the Cumulus Card offers much more and you can use the vouchers much better in any of the stores branches ( exlibris,Migrol,Hotelplan etc etc)

Re: Coop Super Card

I tend to rant about this sort of thing so ......

The main purpose of any loyalty card is to record information about when and how you spend your money. In the UK Tescos had it down pat where they would send you special offers 'tailored' to your 'needs'. This means they spend a lot of effort in working out how you spend your money and how they can get you to spend more with them.

The big issue is that they then share this information - you agree to it when you apply for the card - with other companies who will then plague you with their tat. There are also deeper implications - don't be surprised if your medical insurance premiums go up if you buy a greater than 'normal' amount of fatty foods or alcohol.

Big Brother is not only watching you, he is playing dirty.

Don't use these cards.

End of rant. I feel so much better .

Talking about being paranoid . Maybe in five years time though. See Australia airline 'fat tax' urged http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/7090529.stm

And the BBC news poll shows about 70% of people agree!

Re: Coop Super Card

Loyalty schemes are not for your benefit. It's all about data mining. Most things are.

You really think the CIA aren't mining the crap out of facebook for example.


I told Migros to revoke my cumulus card, because they were spamming me.

Everybody thinks I'm paranoid. But this happening right now in the UK - can't find the reference now but I'll keep looking - there was a case of a guy ticked the no smokers box on his insurance form and was asked if he didn't smoke, why did he buy so many cigarrettes? Tescos, every little helps to screw you.

Then they'll see I like to play the vampire game and give my Facebook chums "Super-Wedgies".

Seriously, though, going to Swissbob's point about using your purchasing style to adjust your medical insurance - that's scary. On the other hand, do you think if you were a fruit, veg and bran type of person they'd drop the price.

I feel so much better after reading your post too . Every time I do shopping, I am asked if I have the card and it seems that I am the only one in the line without it. I was just lazy to apply and partly I don't want to carry around 10 different cards with me all the times. I was also told that what you got from these cards are usually what you don't want .

Re: Coop Super Card

There's a regular advert appearing on the community pinboard at my local shopping centre. This person is always offerinf Fr 200 for 20 000 points or Fr 300 for 30 000 points etc.

Last week there was a stall set up in the centre selling small electric motorbikes, r.c. cars and aeroplanes etc. There was a price discount if you used super-points but this an independent seller, not connected with Coop or any of it's branches.

Re: Coop Super Card

I have been collecting stickers to get a reduced electric kettle. Tragic really.
As far as Migros goes, I got a card and sent the registration form away. Last week a nice letter came with some vouchers on it. This weekend I have been mostly saving 35chf in Migros and Supersport. Suits me

Re: Coop Super Card

there is a thriving market on Ricardo for these points

I use my card when most of the time - profile away the fact that I buy your crap sandwiches but seem to shop only every 3rd or 4th week and buy enough to survive only for about 5 days. Couple that with a datamining exercise with your mates at Migros and I must be bloody starving

That's a valid argument! But then again the UK retail market is two steps ahead of the global competition. Anyway don't buy condoms with a customer card if you're having an affair.
