Loyalty Cards

Just been reading about a couple of chippies in Bruges that offer locals a discount on their bag of chips.  Apparently a tourist demanded a 10% reduction too, but was told no way.

We're used to two tier pricing in Asia where tourist usually pay more compared to locals.  I have no problem with this, we are guests and it is only right and fair we cough that bit extra.

But this rule is not the same.  It is a loyalty scheme aimed to reward the locals and students, which is more than reasonable.  Why should they pay the same as someone on a day trip and only buying frites once?

More at TInd

PS:  That said, paying 7€ for a bag of fried spuds?  That's over six quid.  Bog right off.
