* Purchase 2 conti tyres and get access to conti rewards app which includes:
* 1 free dominos pizza per day, 2 for 1 movie vouchers as well as 2 for 1 other random crap for 12 months.
However the free dominos pizza offer was replaced by 20% off EatNow offer with varies restrictions later September.
The domino pizza was the most attractive offer that drew many customers to purchase the tyres including myself. No question that Continental are good tyres. The question is whether Continental has the right to alter the T&C in their own favour? Using the bait to lure customer and take it away afterwards. Sounds like false advertisement to me.
Current T&C (01-10-2014):
and in the T&C there is this clause:
7 . TLC reserves the right to withdraw, change or substitute the offers with another offer of equal or greater value.
Me and a few fellow OzBargainers are ready to take this to ACCC and need some advice and support. If you are interested in the progress, feel free to vote and reply. Better still if there are more names in the complaint to ACCC, there may be more chances.
