Not Super. Not Cheap.

I went into that parts place just after I got the Suzuki to get an air filter for it.
A Ryco was $104. They checked again and said $104 was right. I said no thanks and walked.
I got home and bought the same Ryco filter plus a Ryco oil filter with free postage for $54 on ebay from someone else.
Got an email tonight with Supercheap "specials for my vehicle" telling me the same Ryco air filter was $38.95. WTF.
Autobarn is looking good.

It pays to shop around
Just because the shops called “Super Cheep Auto” believe me it didn’t live up to it’s name 🤔

I went to Supercheap last weekend to buy a couple of relays. I paid cash and used my club card and was waiting for my receipt. The girl behind the counter said sorry we don't give receipts anymore. It has been emailed to you.WTF. So I have to go home and check my emails to see if she hasn't overcharged me. Not shopping there again.

Fair Trading: Proof of Transaction
Under the Australian Consumer Law (ACL) there are a number of obligations for businesses. These include an obligation to provide proof of transaction to consumers for goods or services valued at $75 or more. Businesses are also required to provide a receipt for any transaction under $75 within seven days if the consumer asks for one.

I believe the emailed receipt is illegal. I would surely try it on if I was told a receipt would be emailed.

Surely an emailed receipt from the supplier would be proof of the transaction. Compared to a paper receipt, only the method of delivery would be different.
My question is, if you didn't produce a loyalty card at the time of purchase, how would they know your email address?

Old is good.

I’d assume that they have to issue a receipt at time of purchase if you’re not a member. They’d have some spin that it’s beneficial to “Club Members” for returns/exchange etc to email it to you.
Similar to Dan Murphy’s, Target etc where they ask you if you want a receive, they sometimes seem put out when you actually want one.

They do that so they can get your email address and then , guess what! You get all their spam! I tell them I have no computer, credit card or mobile phone (I only lied about the computer). So they have to then provide you with a written receipt. On a piece of paper. Written with a pen. Oh, all that extra work!

Otherwise I am not interested. Amen."
