Beautiful Toy Kingdom, Ugly Sales Tactics

Will do all they can to make a sale and they're making a 'killing'
Will do all they can to make a sale and they’re making a ‘killing’

This example is not like what I experienced because this video is not Toy Kingdom, however,  having seen this post on Facebook proves what sales representatives are doing nowadays to make that sale no matter what — even to the detriment of the customer — they will continue doing it and it should stop.

This is my story and it happened in Toy Kingdom.

It was Wednesday, 28th May when I ventured in SM Megamall’s Toy Kingdom in Building A or the one that is right across the Fastfood Area at the basement level.

Holding a PhP300 toy train for my eldest son, a salesman for a competing brand came up to me and blurted out, “Sir! Pangit yan.” referring to the toy I was holding. “Wala yan sir. Walang kuwenta yan.” (That toy has no value, sir. It doesn’t amount to any thing.)

Ouch!

The toy I’m holding has no value and the impression he gave me is that I don’t — in effect — value my son’s happiness because of a 300 peso toy train. What a father am I huh?

I obliged to see what wants to show me and showed this colorful toy train that is structured like a roller coaster. Nice indeed but it’s not within my budget but now how can I go back to the train I still want to give my son that he already labeled, “Walang kuwenta!” I’m almost embarrassed to move or to even pick up the box I want.

I ended up leaving the store without the toy for my kid.

Toy Kingdom Megamall is beautiful but the sales tactics of representatives who want to make a sale…boy, that’s UGLY! Change that please.

I don’t mean to single out Toy Kingdom because you can see from the video that this kind of up-selling strategy is demeaning and provocative that will not bring out the value of what they’re selling.

Petron, Porsche, ‘Priceless’ Collectibles

Prosche Carrera GT: One of the five new Limited Edition Petron Collectibles
Prosche Carrera GT: One of the five new Limited Edition Petron Collectibles

I felt like a kid again when I drove up to Petron to get one of their five latest Limited Edition Petron Collectibles all for PhP240.00 each only this morning. Like last year’s, the minimum PhP1,000, single receipt purchase was my ticket to get these shiny, die-cast, scale-models cars like this Porsche Carrera GT (in picture).

Petron is offering five new sets of die-cast toy cars that would definitely make men go to their stations more frequently before the year ends. In fact, I can get two remote-controlled alternatives that will surely be the first to run out and three new designs different from the ones offered in 2012.

Surely I won’t wait a single moment and head out to collect all new, five, cool, collectible cars from Petron: 918 Spyder, GT3 Cup 2011, Cayman Race, 911 GT3 RS, and the Carrera GT

Enjoy these pictures I took of it and marvel at its details like the the real thing:

Petron fuels are Xtra Advance, Petron Super Xtra, Blaze 100 Octane, and Petron Diesel.

Tip: To get your toy cars faster, run your vehicles until its empty LED gauge lights up. Drive to your nearest Petron gas station and fill up your first PhP1,000 fuel, pay PhP240, get your toy, and drive out. Go back again in the afternoon before you head home. Depending on how fast you use up your fuel, get all five alternatives in one month or even in two weeks but the most important thing right now is to fly to your nearest Petron gas station and get your first funky, hip, and phat car today!

If not, Shell, just like last year too, will surely be coming up with their own cool toys just like the Lego trucks and cars they offered last year.
