I Used To At Least Get a Free Packet of Gum...

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I used to get a free BJ at a notorious BJ Bar in BKK (1 free for 9 paid) and they had the cutest punch card that you could keep in your wallet...went through 3 cards before they closed...

Is that a quick turnaround time? I have ABA and can save my misses a walk when her Smart needs a refill. Read a long while ago that it can be delayed so hoping it has improved.

Or even a piece of shit lighter.

Have I lost my charm or what?

Do you receive "gifts" when topping up?

Shirley you get a 1,000,000% bonus when you top up! (Not to mention the 50,000 free sms, etc., etc., . . . . . . . . . . . . You gotta hate money laundries).

Hey! I dearly love some people who smoke cigarettes...but that don't change none of them factoids. It kills people, the 2nd hand smoke endangers others, it helps the assholes who own stock in the corporations buy larger homes and better cars...and it's a very very stupid habit to have.

Lots of people have quit. All of them smart people.

I wasn't really serious, hope you noticed that.

And yes, smoking is bad, mmkay. I even know some not-so-clever people who stopped...

In the end I just wanted to get this mysterious business model explained, not your opinion on tobacco use.

I have more than $100 worth of bonus credit. I'm good in that area.
