Promotion Coupons at Tesco Lotus

Post by Naam Jai » November 13, 2007, 9:37 pm

Ever though if an expat had won?
I asked Tesco the question.
NO! but hey did confirn that a Ms Mashit Monga won at Pathumthani in June. One out of Ten for a big prize.
I said it was not good enough. Expats are big spenders and deserve better.

Would you like to comment on the draw? Ask if an expat is present? Published results in English and Thai would be a start.?

customerservice@th.tesco.com should be inundated with emails.Copies to the this forum thread please.

Of course you could just consider filling the coupons out a waste of time. But that plays into their hands!

What percentage of the shoppers at Tesco are farang? Of that, how many take the time to fill out the coupon information compared to the Thai shoppers? Based on personal observation and experience, I am sure the percentage of farang submissions are a tiny fraction of the Thai submissions.

Your assumption that Tesco is somehow cheating the farang is baseless and more than a bit paranoid.

Just because you are paranoid, does not mean they are not out to get you!

No expat in Issan has ever won a promotion coupon prize. No I am no paranoid, just cynical. How many expats are there? Any advance on 12000 in the North East?
How many do not shop at Tesco is a valid question.

I am a cynic but in this case,I agree with bamakmak!Very few falangs fill out the entry forms.The Thais swarm all over ''free'' or promotions!

I shop tesco and my wife fills out the coupons in her name in thai lang. if what you say is true have your wife or G/F fill it out. Nothing in this screwed up world would surprise me any more.
on the same note is the drawing in public if so how could they cheat a farang if he won the car
I am just asking I have no comment on the subject

Does anyone know of or seen the draw at Udon Tesco. Nothing is in English,but I will ask Tesco to be transparent,traceable and so more fair with their promotions.

Naam Jai, if your Thai partner entered a Tesco promotion in Britain would you expect the conditions etc to be written in Thai and be completely transparent to a Thai person????

one of the draw backs about living in a foreign country, best bet would be to let the TW/TG/TB fill out the little coupons, Good luck with it all. ;)

Story not 100% related:
About 6 years ago I bought all my electrical machines in one big shop in Korat:
TV, fridge, aircon, dvd, hot water heater,.....
One week later they called on the local radio that Mister X, living in appartment Y in Korat had won a free vacuum cleaner.
Thai people that I never met, came knocking on my door:
Mister, mister, did you buy electrical machines in that shop??? Yes,
Mister, Mister, you are one the radio: you won a Toyota tiger pick up
:shock: :shock: :shock:
I run to the shop.
I won a vacuum cleaner. My neighbours were wrong.
Ok, I didn't got the pick up.
Still, I won a vacuum cleaner.
The only thing I filled in was the paper with my address so that they could deliver the machines to the apartment. I even never knew that there was a lottery.
When I picked up the vacuum cleaner, they even took pictures and put me in the local newspaper.
Ok, this is not tesco Lotus, but still it shows that farangs can also win.
No need to be paranoia.
Sometimes lucky, sometimes not....that's life.. :lol:

Funny, but this OP make me realize that when I shop at Tesco, I am only intermittently given coupons for their silly drawing (I always write in my wife's name and phone number), but when I go there with my wife, they ALWAYS give the coupons. This implies that in the eyes of some of the esteemed cashiers at Tesco, foreigners are not worthy (Yes, this disturbs me a bit).

Don't be so sensitive. Would you really change your shopping habits because of some silly lottery? It seems that this promotion is clearly aimed at the local natives , and hey-the prizes aren't really all that important to you, are they???

I agree but some things are cheaper. Makro has cheaper products but you must buy in quantity. Promotion goods are comparable. Please tell us where you thinK it cheaper to shop?

We usually shop at a market run by a Chinese-Thai family the name sounds something like Nee Soon. We've find the prices there lower than both Tesco & Big C. But they're limited on some items like milk, meats and produce. I found black olives there for 64bt a can. The only other place that I know that carry them is at Expat market in Nong Khai for 120bt a jar. Also, a fairly good selection of spices. It's a small shop, but next month they will be opening a much larger place just outside the ring road on the road going to Nong Bua Lamphu. Nee Soon is located on Phosi Rd (grid J-11).

Thanks, I was hoping you chimed in. I remember our conversation about Nee Soon last month. BTW do you know if they're keeping the original market open when the new opens.

P.S. I also heard you're a guest speaker at the grand opening... :D
