Debate: Price or Reward
I was just reading Hannah's blog over at Betwixt Beauty, and a comment made about her post started making me think about what motivates me to buy products, and where I buy them from. So, I thought I'd start a couple of debates going:
One. Retailers - Boots or Superdrug
My Opinion: At first, I thought to myself, well, of course I'd take the cheaper option, but then I really sat down and thought about it, and I realised that in the real world, I actually find myself heading to Boots more often than Superdrug. Why? Because whatever I buy from Boots is going to give me points on my Boots Card. And we all know what points make right...?
Your Opinion: Which would you choose: Boots (Rewards) or Superdrug (Cheap)? Leave your thoughts below...
Two. Products - Cheap or Reward
Our Second debate looks at actual products. There are two items for sale. They're both pretty much the same product, and they're a product that you genuinely need. One is reasonably priced, whilst the other is more expensive. However, the more expensive one comes with a money-off voucher. Do you choose the cheaper option, or the most expensive one and happily take the reward?
My Opinion: This is a toughy. If the "reward" was a free gift that wasn't too bad, this would be easy, I'd take the expensive one because we all love the idea of a freebie. But, when it comes to a money-off voucher, it's harder to decide. Ultimately, I have to think that I'd take the cheaper option, purely because, as a rule, money-off vouchers tend to be for products that I wouldn't want in the first place. But, then they're often for money off products that I wouldn't alternatively try, so it really is tough!
Your Opinion: Again, which would you choose? Nice and cheap, or expensive but a reward in the shape of a voucher. Join the debate in the comments below :)
