Get Employee Discounts Everywhere

Isn't it great when you've got a friend working at a store and she gives you a nice discount on your purchase?

Do you also work a customer service job and don't mind returning the favor?

If so, why not go to a website called, perhaps, www.employeediscountsforeveryone.com, and start meeting people who will give you discounts on the stuff you buy. Make "friends" (like on facebook) with people in your area who work service jobs and find a convenient time to swing by. Get your employee discount, and be sure to return the favor when they come by your own work.

Don't let the global recession get you down - get employee discounts from everyone!

       hmmm, horrible idea, people would surely get fired doing this one.

       36 characters in the title. That's gotta be a record no?   

       It's not so much a bad idea, but there will have to be some way of accounting and I think it falls apart there.

       It's a healthy idea. I personally like it. Like it as long as no one gets abused, e.g the bottom line of the Lazy owner .... But, an added event might be to faux scan certain items. Avoiding the additional sum to the receipt. As to fool security cams. While saving loads of money for your networked friends!

       This would most likely mean that employees would get less discounts.

       I think that would lead to the end of the whole notion of employee discounts, and everyone would lose out.

       We had a similar scheme when I worked at a Seattle based coffee shop. A hairdresser from Tony and Guy would come in every day and get 4 free coffees, in exchange he would give £10 haircuts.   

       Would probably work well, people would actually be more willing to work for a company taking part in the sceme. It would be like a club card for a decent discount between several companies.

       If he got four coffees, wouldn't his hands be shaking too much to cut hair properly? Maybe you should have made him pay to cut your hair as well.
Tony and Guy's seems like a weird cult to me anyway, but that's beside the point i suppose.

       As long as I get in and as long as it stays low-key, you get a bun.

       I'll bun this idea if you break the title up with a few spaces. It's fucking up my HB overview, one of the few pleasant things I have to look at these days.

       This would be great as a marketing ploy just like the car makers do. Why not just call it a regular discount, becuase that's actually what it is. If you're not an employee then how is it an employee discount?   

       Set up a website as a clearinghouse for managers to give out 'employee discounts' just becuase they're nice managers.
