Let me reenact the scene at Watson's when I purchased Myra Vitaglow at 50% off using the coupon I got from Female Network.
Eksena - Kausap ang sales lady sa Watson's
Me: Miss saan to? (showing her the coupon from Female Network)
Sales Lady (SL): Eto?! Saan nyo nakuha to? (take note: nakataas ang kilay while reading my badly printed coupon)
Me: Sa female network.
SL: Sandali lang (left to talk to her supervisor).
SL: Ma'am, hindi daw kami kasali dito.
SL: Ganon po ma'am.
Me: E di ba may DTI number naman. Ayan nakalagay promo period June 15 to August 15, July 23 pa lang ngayon.
SL: Sandali lang po. (Leaves to call her supervisor)
Supervisor (S): Ma'am, di po kasali yung branch namin.
Me: Nakasulat kasi any Watson's branch. Ayan o, any (pointing to the coupon). Watson's to di ba? So dapat kasali kayo?
S: Wala kasing sinabi sa amin.
Me: E kasi yun yung nakasulat dito.
S: (Seeing I would not budge) Sandali lang po. Tatawagan namin.
S: Ma'am kasali pala kami. Di kasi kami na-inform.
They made me wait for another 10 minutes so they can set up some sort of a system for this promo.
After wasting 20 minutes of my time I finally purchased my tinted moisturizer which I noticed is cheaper by five pesos at Ever Supermarket.
By the way, if you're willing to go through the hassle, here's the link to the 50% off coupon http://www.femalenetwork.com/myra-vitaglow.
