Just a quick warning to others out there. Since I do quite a lot of motorway driving, last January I signed up for the Applegreen loyalty programme. Without being particularly loyal to Applegreen, I still managed to accumulate in the region of 1700 points (representing a spend of €1700).
To my initial delight, I yesterday received a mailing from them, including a voucher for a free carwash, free coffee and 'sweet treat', and a €5 fuel voucher.
However, apparently the nice folk at Applegreen took it upon themselves to convert 1175 of my points into this €5 fuel voucher, without any permission sought or warning given. And unless I somehow manage to get this unused voucher back to them, at an inconvenience to me, the points will not be restored to my account.
How can Applegreen go ahead and 'cash in' my points, which I was hoping to use on some of their other promotions.
Jaysus, just logged into my own Rewards account and they've done the same to me.
Sent an email off there to email@example.com
Perhaps you should do the same?
It does say in the T&C's:
Which you agreed to when signing up.
Cheers, read through it quickly there but didn't notice it.
You'd be fecked if you were saving up for something more than 1175 in that case (like most of the products on their Rewards page). If they are doing this on an ad-hoc basis, they should have a lot more products priced under that 1175 bracket - you know, so you can spend the points
I'd rather that they had donated this €5 to Jack in Jill, rather than a €5 fuel voucher, but that's just me of course.
Ach well, looks like each time I hit 1500, I'll be getting 2 for 1 beauty treatments.
It is sneaky alright. I'm hoping to save for a cinema ticket but I may get the voucher first if I'm not quick enough although I will say one thing that it is handy to get something incase I forget about the points. At least they dont lie there forever.
Just took a look at my own account there. I have 1,660 points.
had a look at the reward options I to be fair, the choices are very poor
The amount of money you spend doesn't equal to the value of points.
If you look at your account you will see this. For example I spent €40 and recieved 24 points
Doesn't anyone read T&C's anymore
Fair enough point about reading the T&Cs, happy enough to hold up my hands to that one. Also, I did ring Applegreen and in fairness the staff were very pleasant and helpful, so credit where it's due! However, I do think that the mailing and the practice of removing points at their discretion to be somewhat dubious. That's just me!
1 litre of fuel costs about €1.58 at the moment..
The price of petrol is not relevant to this thread - please stay on topic.
The price of petrol dictates the points you'll get. It is relative.
Thats a good one really,the voucher can be used for fuel so obviously the price IS relevant,the cheaper the fuel the more value you get for your voucher...........
Got mine yesterday and really have no problem with getting the voucher as I would probably not bothered with the points as the deals didnt suit me.
What was being argued here was the fact that Applegreen redeemed the OP's points without (as he thought) his permission. That is the topic.
