Redditors poke fun at Jollibee’s ridiculous price cut
Smart customers need to always be alert against false marketing strategies like discounts and price cuts. With the amount of promos being aired on TV and online, one redditor shared what he noticed from a Jollibee advertisement where there was only a P1 discount from the original P80 price being trumpeted as a super large amount.
Other redditors were quick to pick up on the shade and pitched their own.
One redditor said that if a customer purchases the same combo 79 times, they will get at least one free meal’s worth from the discount that Jollibee implemented. Another one said that as a loyal customer of the fastfood chain, he will definitely feel the impact of the discount once every 3 to six months.
Another post shared a mathematical formula to maximize the discount with a Jollibee Happy Card which would entitle a customer to 124.82 points for each P6,241 purchase.
Some customers humorously accepted the P1 discount as a bonus to buy a piece of candy or gum as dessert. (ANGEL ONG)
