There's an ad running on TV at the moment
for the NAB
You may have seen it - one of those ads
that are all airy fairy and designed to make you think that the National
Australia Bank are beyond reproach and would do absolutely nothing
that wasn't legal.......featuring some woman who hands in a pair of
sun glasses at an information booth at a shopping centre and walks
off only to see her face on a cake with the icing writing saying Honest
Marina and then she walks down the mall with all these posters saying
The New Face Of Honesty with her mug shot on them.
Well.......just how honest is this ad
from the NAB?
You may also have noticed along the bottom,
for about three split nano-seconds, a whole lot of terms and conditions
that flash up. You have no time to read them of course as is often
the case with these sharp operators but if you record it and freeze
frame it, it is most instructional.
Part of the terms read: "Everyday
purchases exclude transactions the NAB decides are wholly or partly
for gambling or gambling purposes"
Well, isn't that interesting. The NAB
And who elected them to the level of
pontiff? Who decided they should be the holy judges of what is right
And for what? Fly Buy points where you
have to spend a gazillion dollars with the NAB on their credit cards
to get a $65 flight with Jetstar? Give me a break.
So it's alright if I get an NAB card
and go down the pub and buy a couple cases of vodka? Or go to Coles
and Woolies and buy cartons of cigarettes but I can't get their precious
fly buy points if I use part of it for gambling? What? Are these people
Where do they get off on this BS? Do
they spend their time listening to the mug independent and Green MPs
who want to turn Australia in to a nanny state with every thought
and action controlled by them? What they should know is that without
their anti gambling crusades these politicians would NEVER get their
heads on TV or faces in the paper because they are so boring and devoid
of constructive and positive ideas.
But of course the NAB are totally honest
aren't they? No terms and conditions that apply to their product that
are put on their ads for such a short time and in such small fonts
that no one is ever expected to read them. Yeah - that's honest. Real
honest. But all for the community good I can hear the wankers saying
Thanks for the offer NAB - but - no thanks.
You just stick to making billions of dollars profit from exorbitant
interest rates on your credit cards.......I'll stick to gambling.
I know which is the most fun.
And more honest.
