Oh I remember working at Old Navy. Very good deals, but we were judged on how many Old Navy cards we enrolled, with the low numbers risking being fired. The policy is to (or at least was, can't speak for currently,) not stop listing & describing benefits until the customer says "no" three times.

@walkingsnake: Just one of the many, many, reasons why I always wear headphones in public and never talk to anyone.

@walkingsnake: I work at an Old Navy right now actually but we've never had the "'no' 3 times" rule which is nice cause that would be really awkward when you know they just want to leave. But the rest of what they have us ask customers still makes the check out process still really drawn out, like practically demanding people's emails.
Anyway, I'm not a fan of this promotion cause its making the store really messy. Especially the women's clearance section.

@ap123: Ah. See, the email address was never required when I worked. Or maybe it's a by-store thing. Nobody really followed the 3-No's rule unless a manager is right behind you, but it was policy. An annoying policy.

My wife just bought a bathing suit and a shirt literally an hour ago. Could have saved $10. Damnit!!!

@kylemittskus: Return it. Go in the store, find the same stuff, and rebuy it with savings. It's okay if tags and stuff have been taken off, just be sure to have a receipt to make it easier.

When I get asked to open a store credit card, I just tell them I already have one. I've tried to use the excuse that I already have too many cards or that I don't want another one, but nothing seems to stop the hard-sell faster than telling them you already have a card and thus would no longer need another credit card.

As for when a store asks for my email address, I usually respond with something like "Does that have something to do with that internet thing I've been hearing about?". Of course that doesn't work as well here when you're using a coupon printed off the internet!

coupon doesn't work on sale items. thought i was going to be able to pick up several pairs of jeans for the kids for school next year (on sale now for $15 if you buy two) for a steal, but coupon was rejected at check out. aw darn!

@kandpcraft: worked for me on sale items! the ONSAVE30 is for people using ON and/or Gap credit cards. ONSAVE20 is for the rest of us! :)

@kandpcraft: The coupon isn't valid on one-day-only sales, per the fine print. Should work for everything else.

Yes, the store employees ( anyone suggesting ANYthing from ANYwhere in customer service really) are required, usually to promote and increase sales and store credit cards are huge for the business. It is very difficult, no matter how great you are at your job, to know they have to put the pressure out there to you and that the odds are in the favor of a rejection... All day, over and over. IF you had a good shopping experience, IF the employee is doing well and you have a few minutes... See if you can fill it out and leave it. Then tweak a few numbers, letters and maybe she'll get credit and you don't get your credit run. Granted a few people out there are clearly in the wrong profession and don't deserve that gesture so move on.
