well would be not surprised when in a DB scan they
recognizing you as
single buying so much .. they think your making business with it, and
noticing the tax department.
or like a neighbour .. he got sued to throw liter in ilegal bags .. because they
verifyed the list of items he was buying .. found a receipt with his name ..
and they got him .. but as the letter arrived he was just back from holiday,
and all the items where still in his house
but they didnt accept that
Actually, the Supercard (and the Cumulus as well) are quite easy
to "exploit" and throw a monkey wrench up Coops and Migros
I have both cards but I share them with my parents. That is one
thing, one can do, share the card.
Then, I don't have the card with me all of the time. (In fact I
do have them with me, but oh well...). In that case, if the
grandma before or after me has a card, I just ask her if she
wants my Cumulus points on her account. Sure they do, classical
win-win situation. She is happy, Migros database is confused
(what does the 90 year old lady buys beer, CD-Rs and condoms
for?) and the clerk won't mind anyway.
This also works the other way. If someone at the checkout does
not have a card, why not ask them, if you can have their points
on your account? Just ask nicely, most people without a card
won't mind. Another win-win situation here.
