Re: mylowes card?!?!?
I haven't setup a "profile" online, but the brochure says,"Create an online place for every space, add room dimensions and keep notes for future plans." Sounds like they want more information so they can go data mining and either try to sell me more stuff or give that info to others who will try.
If a credit card is used, all purchases can be looked up using that card without the need for a receipt for refunds already... so that's a non-starter for this program.
I don't see any other purpose than to just hand over more information to a company that sells me stuff for no benefit in return. I do have rewards cards at other retailers for store loyalty, and some of those programs really save money or reward customers for repeated purchases. I know they keep my information, blah, blah... but using credit or debit cards today is still creating a digital paper trail anyway.
Unless this new program yields the customer some realistic benefits, I think I'll pass on this one..
