    Angry Hoyts Rewards

    Anyone joined up to the Hoyts Rewards Program?


    I went to the movies last night and before the main feature there was an advertisement for Hoyts Rewards.
    The advertisement stated "points for every dollar you spend"

    I buy all the tickets in my family (and we go quite often) so I thought it would make sense to get "points for every dollar I spend"

    I purchased the Hoyts Reward pack and took it home.
    On reading the fine print on the back of the pack I find:
    "Points may only be earned on either one Adult ticket or one Student
    ticket or one Senior ticket per card / per transaction / per session,
    plus an unlimited number of Child tickets."

    So even though I buy 4 adult tickets I only get points for one ticket. Doesn't sound like "points for every dollar you spend"

    I'm a bit ticked off....!!

    Take it back and ask for your money back then report them to Fair Go and/or the ComCom for misleading advertising.

    If you were not told of the terms and conditions and there was no opportunity to read them before purchase then go back and ask for a refund.

    If there are restrictive conditions, they are obliged to draw them to your attention prior to purchase.

    I had an experience with the revolving restaurant in Auckland years ago - I went to pay on leaving, to be advised that they do not accept cheques.
    Where is the notification of that condition - there was none - It had to be prominently displayed at the reception point and on the menu - It wasn't - They were obliged to accept my cheque - it became a matter of principal.
