Deal or No Deal - Open the BOX!

I love Photobox - particularly their Photobooks which are a great way of preserving digital images and far better than having loads of prints loose in envelopes or springing out of photocorners in albums. Or languishing on hard disks which will get upgraded or broken within two or three years.

A couple of years ago I signed up for their "exclusive insiders club" for access to special discounts that ordinary mortals can only dream about. This morning I received this Special Insiders Email Offer, just for me. I am a treasured and elite long standing customer and they are very anxious to look after me :


I managed to contain my excitement long enough to check my other email (yes, yes, I know) and was slightly disappointed to find what the ordinary plebs are being offered:


I'm distraught. I intend placing my special insiders club membership badge in the back of the drawer along with my Blue Peter badge and Cycling Proficiency certificate.

These "offers" really get up my nose and have resulted in some long and "to-the-point" conversations with various companies. One poor sod at Orange tried to justify his employers actions, it only took 21/2hrs to break his will to live.......

Yes, I get notices like that saying I'm a loyal customer when i haven't bought anything for years. Makes you wonder how they stay in business. . . . . .

I do get tired of adverts exhorting me to hurry! When it's gone, it's gone! - until the next day, when there's an even more enticing offer. But I think your special offer beats my special offer.
