    The Christmas vouchers saving scheme company Park has reared its ugly head already. "I know it's still a while until next Christmas..." Yes, 51 whole weeks, you cunts :mad:

    I don’t get the Park thing - what is the benefit of it vs putting money into a savings account every week? Do you get better deals out of it for food etc? I know a couple of people who use it and like it but I don’t get it.

    I'm guessing it 'forces' people to commit to save for next Christmas gifts, rather than taking the money out a few months from now and spending it on something else if one finds oneself short of cash. I suspect there might be penalties involved for withdrawing the money early. In any case, you re paid in gift vouchers not cash.

    Yeah I’ve just looked on the website and they’re keen to push the point that you can’t be tempted to spend the savings if you’re with them. Wonder how they make their money - perhaps from the food and drink hampers.

    The unrealistically happy-looking and unfeasibly prosperous-looking mother and child in that Park advert are what grate with me. festivaldeb felt the same even more -- and debt advice wortk is included in her Citizens Advice job.

    People who really do have serious debt and skintness issues are the people who'll feel most pressured into using Park and companies like them. Not people who look like they've never had an unpaid bill in their lives, such as the people on the advert -- or at least how the ad presents them ... :hmm:

    Image vs reality don't match :mad:

    Apart from reinvesting the cash they get from their customers, I would imagine they take a cut from the retailers (Argos, M&S, etc) they offer gift cards for.

    Ten years ago,several banks including Halifax got in trouble and had to be bailed out by the the tax payer after giving loans to people that couldn't pay them back....Halifax now advertises that it would give a cat that wants a dustbin a mortgage.

    That one where the geeky kid says "what's a computer?" to the friendly inquisitive neighbour.

    The kid knows damn well what "a computer" means and, by pretending not to know and not answering the polite enquiry, that kid is a dick. I hate that kid :mad:

    Usual crop of debt-prodding, guilt-tripping, love-sapping life insurance and funeral plan advertisements intensifying for the new year. (Oh yeah, it's 2018, hadn't noticed, must start saving for the cost of disposing of my mortal remains :thumbs:)
    They're all awful (and I know they're not exactly easy products to sell) but the one where dad & daughter stroll along a sunny shingle beach yapping about, more or less, "yeah well, shame that Mum died but at least she had a lovely funeral" has got to be The Official Worst.

    The Crimbo Limbo song, which was the first time I saw these two, was actually rather good. They (appropriately) only showed the advert during the week between Xmas and NYE, so it didn't get repetitive and annoying either.
