Are you a Puregold shopper? I am.
Shopping at Puregold has benifits and disadvatages. I’d like to share some of my experiences with you.
You can do EPS with them if you have an ATM that has that feature, however, you cannot do two purchases in one visit. There is no limit on the amount as long as your balance can accomodate it not with the number of transactions.
If you will shop using a credit card, make sure that you will bring at least 2 valid id’s with you to avoid the cashier refusing to swipe your card.
Expect that your receipts will be checked by the security guard at the exit, they will count your shopping bag and make sure it will match on what the bagger’s wrote on your receipt.
I appreciate the security measures being practiced by the employees of Puregold, but I believe they are missing some area to focus to aside from security check. At SM, you will not be prohibited to use your ATM as many times as you want and SM cashiers will not ask you for a valid ID if you wish to use your credit cards, atleast not all the time. SM security guard will not check your shopping bags at the exit as well.
One time I purchased a microphone at Puregold, unfortunately, I needed to return it due to a factory damage. As a customer I will of course as for a replacement. So I head on to Puregold before I go to my office, I was in a hurry so I went to the customer service area, they called the crew that is assigned to the electronic equipment where I got the microphone. He accompanied me to check other microphones and test it. I was able to chose a replacement right away, we head on the cashier, this crew knew I am in a hurry. Luckily, there are not much people on the cashiers lane, we had a very accomodating and friendly cashier and bagger on my lane.
Now this is the big surprise, after the cashier documented my replacement item, the crew that accompanied me took the new microphone back without saying a word and walk back to his post. All of us were surprised to what he did. The bagger followed him back to get the microphone back, kinda weird because the bagger said the crew did not say a word at all.
This happened at Puregold Imus, hope you don’t have the same experience that I had.
