A top local hotel came out with this novel promotional idea in these tough economic times:
The discount you get on your birthday, when celebrating it at any of their F&B outlets, is equivalent to your age.
So, that means, the older you are, the greater the discount!
A group of 8 of us went for a lunch celebration recently. As the birthday girl was 64years, that was the discount on the bill. We ate at their Japanese restaurant, and we all had set lunches. The bill came to slightly above $100.
As the markup at most hotel F&B outlets is very high, I am sure even with the discount given, they still made a profit!
I guess, this is about the only time, any lady over 25 is more than happy to reveal her age, and the older she is, the happier she will be!!
I hope this promotion continues!!
