I wanted to share this experience..
How many times that you go to a shopping mall, trying to see if they offer you free parking with a certain amount spend?
I was at Endah parade for a quick shopping and I wanted to see if the place has got blueberries for sale since it’s now in season. Well, after walking the whole Carrefour for 2 rounds, I can’t find any except strawberries.
I did some calculations while doing my shopping as Endah Parade got 2 hours free parking if you purchase above RM30 from Carrefour. I bought potato bread, a can of peach, strawberries, some gift wrappers and greeting cards, and some other can’t remember what.. I have 2 tumblers with me too.. which will make up my shopping losses of RM40++. *quick note: I was trying to meet the minimum purchase so was trying very very hard to find some thing to buy*
Upon at the counter, the cashier scanned the items, and I found that the tumbler is actually wrong pricing (it happen in this Carrefour many many times) therefore I am extra careful when come to the cashier. I told the cashier to void the tumbler, as I don’t want to wait for them to start ‘calling’ their supervisor, check the price.. and blah blah blah…
So, the bill was then only RM25++ without the tumblers, but heck, I just don’t want to round the hypermarket again and with Princess wanting to touch anything that come to her curiosity.. so, I check out.
While exiting at the car park, I paid RM1 for the parking of an hour and half, and that make my total spending of RM26++ instead of RM45++?
I just may save another RM20 for this. And the next time I go shopping, provided the cost of parking is going to be really expensive, I will surely not going to shop till the minimum payment.
