My Very Own Esprit Card



I got my own Esprit card last week by buying three items that added up to more than $150. It seemed like a walk down to my past, when i was unable to buy such expensive items since i am just a poor student (or more like i am not willing to spend the money on mere clothes). Still remember that i was so happy when i bought my first and only top at Esprit during sec school, which made me $50 poorer. Haiz.. So now that i had the ability to buy these items, i became a bit siaoz.. Cos the clothes i bought probably can be bought in local stores at half the price if they do not come with the brand name. heehee..

Anyway, I realised that the card is valid for only one year, and I need to spend $600 within this 12nths to renew the card automatically. I dont know whether the marketing person is smart or just plain damn. Instead of spending $600, i can just spend $150 to get a new card, right? Or is that one of the scheme to ensure we at least buy something in the coming months? I predict that by requiring me to keep doing this, it will only results in a loss of interest in this brand for me. Well, let's see what will happen in the next 12 mths. I do know one good thing is that i will enjoy 20% on my birthday month, November.. Want to borrow my card, just let me know :p

  • since you like esprit, then it's possible to spend 600 in 1 year mah. just dun try to spend 600 just so u can keep card. as you said, only need 150 to get another. :)

    ayay, i wan to put up ur banner leh, but it say i must have copyrite, how? got permission? then, i'll just type the thing in.

  • I guess the difference is you can spread out your spending throught out a year.

    Whereas to get a new card, you need to spend S$150 in on single receipt.

    Honestly, if you do like Esprit, it is not hard for you to clock S$600. Do you use make up? I guess you can switch to Red Earth if possible to meet that requirement!

  • I teach you lah.. Ask your friends to use your card and buy stuffs lor. So that you can accumulate points/increase your expenditure on the card. = D
