I used Smiles card for many many years. At times, I lost my card. So, I applied for new ones. Actually, they were not lost but being misplaced by myself.
I was surprised when one day, all came out when I did spring cleaning. What did I do? I distributed to my kids. Yet I still had that habit of misplacing. So I kept on applying. One day, I had to check with the petrol station and started getting rid of some of them.
Now, I'm more careful as I keep them in my purse.
Talking about the Petron card, someone dropped his card at my shop. I just left it at the counter but nobody seemed to claim it. It had been lying around for a couple of months and instead of throwing it away, I had an idea.
I used the card to pour some petrol and got the receipt. There were 1200 points. I went to redeem stuff from the convenient shop. Total RM13.50. So I just paid RM1.50. With two packets of foodstuff, I gave one to the station attendant. He was surprised.
On my way back, I passed by the usual Sunday recycling centre. I gave the other packet to the person on duty. He thanked me but I should thank the person who lost the card.
My first experience of this kind. I felt that I shouldn't use the points for myself. Thus, donating it to others in another way.
