7/11 Stamps

24 posts in this topic

I've been living here for a while now and keep throwing away those silver stamps you get every time you buy something from the 7/11. Does anyone know why/how you collect them and whether there is any point?

Yours in ignorance,

Jez :o

Each stamp is worth 1 baht applied to future 7/11 purchases so if you have collected 20 stamps it's like 20 baht in cash but only at 7/11.

Aha! Thanks for that! Is there some sort of special card that you need to stick to them to, or do you just hand them over loose? I don't suppose you know if there are any charities out there that could use them?

Cheers!

In the 7 near me they have this thingy by the door you can stick

them on. It's got a picture of a monk on it so it must be for a good

cause right ?

And here I thought that each stamp was worth one nano-satang. I once saved up to buy a cooler, but never redeemed the stamps.

Why is it that sometimes I am given the stamps, and sometimes not? I always purchase at least 100 baht worth of goods.

And what about the 1,000 baht I spent today for phone cards? No stamps either.

could be a few reasons:

- mood swings of the 7/11 employee.

- they ran out of stamps.

- they think you dont know about the stamps and taken them for themselves.

I agree with all of the above, but there are also some things that earn stamps and some that do not. Your receipt will actually tell you and the clerk how many stamps you are due.

I suggest that you write a letter of complaint to the management. Stick the 7 Eleven stamps on the envelope and post it as normal. :o

They are not given out for grog, cigs or phone cards. You get one for every thirty baht spent. There are some items behind the counter that you can redeem them for, folding chairs, coffee perks and hello kitty gear etc.

no stamps when purchasing alcohol, cigarettes or phone cards.you get one stamp for a purchase of 30 baht.

and for some 100s of collected cards there are some gifts like a 7-11 chair and some stuff.

Mate!

Did it really take you a whole 10 hours to repeat, virtually word for word, what the previous poster had written?

Only joking - welcome to the strange world of ThaiVisa! :o

You joke, but the first time I had a root canal, I completely lost the airline tickets I purchased the same day, and had to replace the tickets. However, don't ask for a root canal at 7-11.

Just asked my wife what does she do with them. She said, there is a dedicated pool of goods that you can exchange them for. She takes Kitty or Mickey Mouse dolls for the kid.

replace or re-buy the tickets? from http://www.7eleven.co.th/stamp.html I learned that the green stamps I recently wondered about are worth 3 baht. nothing about root canal treatment but still the chair http://www.7eleven.co.th/stamp2.html I definitly go for the yellow one :o
