隐私, 时刻, 钱财

我不喜欢借记订单. 我从来都不喜欢另一实体的想法,, 随意, 我的钱几乎任何数量的 (良好 … 任何可用的). 一位同事指出的问题 MTN 本来是可以避免的我一直用的是借记卡付款单. 也许 “方便” 因素是不是一件坏事.

我想在这里的倒数第二个问题是,你是否希望在方便性和可以信任的机构 (在这种情况下,你的钱) – 或者,如果你不能信任他们,都愿意放弃这种便利. 在我的情况下,, 尽管我仍然质疑的方便, 我学到了艰辛的道路与MTN,这双是不方便让你的连接是天涯沦落 “偏远的岛屿” 状态. 几乎每个人都今天去的便利因素.

便利

另一方面, 现在很久以前, 我曾与一个争议 星球健身 方便的地方是把双刃剑. 我报告了他们的经营实践中,消费者投诉委员会 (由于重新组织为 全国消费者委员会) 和从来没有得到反馈,他们. 这个问题的要点是,星球健身的销售代理骗了我和一个朋友,以获得更多的佣金/钱出来我的口袋里.

我是一个 发现生命力 件,它提供了许多好处, 其中包括降低利率的优质品牌 – 主要是与健康有关的课程, 如发现是一个医疗救助/健康保险提供商. 简单地说, 发现是真棒. 活力的福利覆盖的健身房会员资格,其中还包括Planet Fitness健身. 你还是要支付一些费用, 各种各样的小礼物, 至愉, 的健身房会员资格. 但, 毕竟, 他们希望我是健康的, 所以他们不介意立足点大部分法案. 但, 显然地, 这意味着星球健身’ 销售代理没有得到佣金!

那么,这是否会导致? 其结果是,PF的销售代理给了我一个夸大的数字为 “基于活力” 会籍. 他撒了谎. 然后,他让我签的虚线为的一个夸张的价格 “定期” 会籍 (是的, 它实际上是多连一个普通的会员将花费), 结束了约 4 和 5 倍之多的活力,基于会员.

顿悟

有些时候 2011 ,我终于wisened了,我本来是要付出的成本. 发现我肯定不会太高兴这次惨败. 我跟经理人在健身房, 我保证,将取消整个合同. 我不是一个暴力的 … 除非其为运动 … 在一个八角 … 但经过我的第五访问的经理问为什么借记订单仍然发生, 他告诉我,他很惊讶我没有带武器,与我的访问. 经过几次更多的访问, 经理实际上已经离开了星球健身和解释,我说, “合同” 在我和公司总部之间以及当地的健身房, 显然特许经营式的操作, 已经几乎没有说关于它是否会被取消. 如果总部说没有, 倒霉.

通过这一点,我已经失去了它. 我有我的银行放 停止 以借记订单. 这是一个巨大的拖带: 我不得不每月与银行联系,因为借记为了说明会改变非常轻微. 它也花了我一点点地每隔几个月 “恢复” 阻塞 服务. 我不禁想起了银行系统的支持 正则表达式 但工作人员不一定知道如何使用它.

从技术上讲,我仍然在等待了CCC回去给我 (从来没有发生过 – 当然,他们进行了重新组织上述这样的情况下通过裂缝可能下降). 当然, 由点PF也想黑名单我不支付!

在意外的英雄

一个偶然提到的问题发现的 (我想,我叫他们关于牙医访问) 通过发现的代理商之一造成的在回调. 然后,他们问我,说明问题, 在细节和书面, 为更好地从我的角度解释了什么真的发生. 我不得不. 事实证明我是对的他们不被 “太开心了” 关于它. 事实上,他们 不喜欢. 大约三个星期后, 星球健身退还我FULL对于曾经被支付给他们的所有款项.

发现是真棒. 🙂

Why I’ve left MTN

So I’ve been shopping around in a non-serious fashion in the last few months trying to figure out how best to leave MTN and how get the best deal for me. I don’t like MTN since I became anirate“, as I might call such a customer in the ISP industry. MTN’s Customer-Service Call Centre had rarely been helpful or knowledgeable on their own systems. The final straw however was when their systems let me screw myself over and Customer Service was as helpful as a dead redshirt:

I had a billing issue where, admittedly, it started of my own fault. MTN has a feature where you can call in to find out the amount owing on your account. Only, as Murphy would have it, this amount was the amount owing on the account but the last amount that was billed.

So one month my account was about R900. I called the number, mis-heard R500, paid the amount I thought I should: R500. 15 days later MTN suspended my account. No wrong done, right? Wrong.

First off, I received no notification of any kind. An sms would make the most sense, especially since it would cost MTN almost no resources: “Your account xyz is in arrears by R400. Please contact blah blah blah”. They could phone me, they could email me, something, but nothing of the sort happened. Suspend without Prejudice. Thats the best way to get the customer’s attention!

Now, not only could I not make calls and sms’s, I could not receive calls or sms’s. Further, I could not even call MTN’s toll free phone number. I had to use someone else’s phone to get to the bottom of the problem. After two days of haggling I finally found a lady kind enough to re-enable the account. Ten days later my salary goes in, I call the same number and hear a number close toR900”. I think to myself maybe I should double-check juuuust in case I mis-heard. I call again, I hear the same number again. Right. Pay the R900. Fifteen days later, my phone is suspended AGAIN. WTH?

Remember what I mentioned earlier?: “this amount was the amount owing on the account but the last amount that was billed.” So, in spite of the fact that the voice prompt specifically saysPress 3 for Balance Due; [Presses 3] ; The Total Outstanding Balance is; Nine; hundred; 和; #whatever ; Rands; 和; #whatever; cents”, I actually owed them R900 plus the R400 that I’d paid short the previous month. 不, I do not know if MTN has fixed this. I no longer care. Since I figured this out I started waiting for paper statements to see how much was actually due. Interestingly, their paper statements were also wrong. Only they had the opposite problem: “This invoice: R1300in spite of the fact that on the next page it says opening balanceR400”, closing balanceR1300”. Pah! Is it fixed? 再次, I don’t care.

I let them know I wasn’t renewing the contract and I’ve now already ported my number away to Virgin Mobile. Because I want to keep my number and port it elsewhere, the store said I could not putunsatisfactory serviceas the reason for ending the contract but that it should simply sayporting”. Apparently by putting anything else there they might notnoticethat I want it ported. WTF.

What next? (without MTN)

In my research I’ve found that contractdealsare most popular. Typically, you can get a R8000 phone for R800 per month over 24 months with R500-odd worth of airtime per month. This amounts to you paying R19 200 over a 24-month period for a phone worth R8000 which will be obsolete within 12 个月. You will get some airtime every month so you might feel its not a complete loss. However you should also remember that it costs the cellular companies nothing when you make those phone calls. 利润.

There’s a better way

There are much cheaper contracts, contracts for between R50 and R200 which include cheapish phonesphones that work damned well as a phone but won’t let you play games on the train. Most of these contracts actually give you the same airtime value (sometimes more!) as what you are paying. So for R100 you might get R100 worth of airtime plus some free sms’s, and a cheapish phone. The best deals I’ve seen recently have all been for the Samsung STAR, an understated but good cell phone, available from a number of retailers for between R100 and R200 per month. In most cases the deals have included the full amount of airtime. Virgin Mobile has probably the best example here: The cost is R199 per month which includes R200 in airtime and 1000 sms’s (是的, you read that rightone thousand!).

Virginal Service All the Way!

Another reason I’ve gone with Virgin Mobile is a little something no other service provider does: AmixedContract/Prepaid facility. I get R200 in airtime however, if I go over that, the extra just gets added to my invoice. With MTN this could go sky high without the option of a limit! With Virgin, because I asked, it has a limit of R300. 但, I can still add prepaid airtime (with cellphone banking, nogal). No other service provider lets you do this!

Remember that R8000 cell phone I mentioned earlier? My plan is to get the Samsung STAR and spend less than R300 per month. I’ll have saved enough money to actually go and buy a more expensive phone (or laptop) with the cash I’ll have saved! 当然, if you actually use that R800-worth of phone calls, I guess the best available deal is where you spend the R19200 anyway. Maybe at least with a more critical view on your choices you’ll save yourself a good amount of money in future. Good luck in your search for your best deal!

I’m looking at the South African banking system (partly a result of watching the Zeitgeistdocumentary”) 和, after finding my bank implicated most with regards to the SA-Banking Competition Commission wikileaks scandal, I’m putting serious consideration into switching banks.

What ethical banks are out there right now? I’ve even looked into Sharia (Islamic) banking because of their strict ethics laws but even there I’m looking at even more unknowns. I’m not Islamic and I have nothing against funding pork-related activities.

On that note, do you know if your bank has a code of ethics? If they’re public, where can we see these ethics codes?

Tell me about service levels I haven’t heard of before and which bank you believe deserves to handle my money.
