Banned from Woolworths Online Forever!

Sheesh. Any company that shows such low respect for their customers as Woolworths does nowadays, IMO, shouldn't expect customers to show them any undue respect.
Cashback, Amex deals, Coupons, 5% off giftcards, egiftcards, fuel vouchers, Woolworths Dollars, 1/2 price deals, catalog specials etc……., etc……….
Give us fair price, let us shop straight, no bullshit woolies.
While shopping in Eastern States I found Woolies specials closelely matched Aldi's everyday prices. Take a chance Woolies.

Woolworths online shopping interface is psychological torture for purpose IMO. Shame Woolworths, shame.

So Wow claims I am in breach of their T&C. Really? How can this be. I've never read it, like 60+% of your customers.
So you CLAIM I have made 62 different Wow accounts. Wrong! I must argue. I've made about 130 according to my flakey records.But you deleted lots two years ago, and they are not in fact included in your current count list.
Now lets get down to it!
You lost dicksmith for $loss. You lost masters for massive $loss. You are on your back foot everywhere according to your financial reports and business plan adjustments.
Why pick on me? I have exploited an exploitative system you setup, with success :-) Up to 40% off occasionally. ?

Anyway my address has been banned from online delivery FOREVER.
As such I rang up to get my ~$700 egift card and unfilled order coupon code, refunded as I cannot spend as intended. As expected they stated it can't be done. I said if you think about it, it's money and it can be done,… really. She went and spoke to her supervisor agan, who then spoke to her supervisor, that concluded that I will need to contact the online egiftcard provider. Which is 282% crap because they will not be able to verify the reasons needed for refund at woolies. So I asked isn't egiftcards a woolworths company, and then I died a final DOI (death of issue) with her reply.
Bottom Line -
You cant get a refund for Woolworths giftcards even when Woolworths refuse you service!

      I actually thought it was quite easy to read.

      TLDR - OP morally justifies exploiting Woolies online. He states how he justifies the deed. His exploits resulted in his address being banned. He now invokes his right to a refund (of unused credit) but is being dismissed without any grounds.

          Judge: Hmmmm damn that's a good defense. I guess you're free to go.

        You mention 60% of the customers are just like you so why pick on you. I disagree – I'm sure 60% of customers don't have 150+ Woolworths Online accounts. More like 1%. And it's possible and effective to ban that 1%, that's why you've been banned. Part of being a true OzBargainer is staying one step ahead of the companies. I guess you'll be moving houses soon!

      Well. If you create a new account every shop, and use Egiftcards to pay. A different ***@yopmail.com email, and change of name, you get free shipping each time, and some extras such as $10 off.

      I assumed lots of people have been doing this.

      •  

        I'm guessing you got your egiftcards at a discounted rate, right? (Like 5% off)

        • +1 vote

          Yes 5%, and 6% at groupon.

      • +2 votes

        It might seem like a good idea in theory, but at what cost does the $10 discount come? Having to create new e-mail addresses every time, having no way or making it very hard to track or recall orders or receipts down the track, the time it takes to open e-mail address, fill in your delivery address and credit card information every time, keep a spreadsheet of all your 150+ usernames & passwords. It almost doesn't seem worth the $10 – this is your life you're wasting away by trying to save a few dollars. Plus the stress and risk of being banned (which actually happened.) Pay the $10 and live a little more. Don't waste so much of your life
