I talk with Geoff Greenwood, former super-scam-sleuth for KCCI NewsChannel 8 and now in the same role (sorta) as spokesperson for the Iowa Attorney’s General’s office about how to tell a real secret shopping company (that would be The Buyosphere) from a real-as-an-animatronic-Santa-in-a-Menards-Christmas-display one.
Speaking of which which, I’ll also recite and explain my all time list of the top things employees say to us shoppers that not only dampen our shopping mood, but incinerate it.
Speaking of the heat, apparently there’s a bit of Summer left, and aren’t we all so thankful that he/she decided to stay a bit longer before heading South in the trunk of your grandparent’s car (which will stop every 13 minutes for potty breaks – good luck with that, Sum!).
May the warmth of the sun on our faces this weekend remind us that the best customer service comes free of charge.
See you back here (fee-free) on Monday.
