Wake Up and Smell The Coffee - Again !

Another side issue of this subject is that the use of loyalty cards like the Tesco Clubcard allows the supermarket to track your personal preferences. They know whether you have pets, what your dietary requirements are (diabetic, kosher, Polish, etc), the colour of your hair (if you buy hair dye) and so on. They will know a lot more about you if you have insurance, loans, etc with them.

These Clubcards are being changed shortly for Rewards cards - basically, you will be allowed to double the redemption value of your vouchers for specific products.

There is a very interesting programme coming back to BBC 3 called "Blood, Sweat and T-shirts".

This BBC Three series from May 2008 saw six young fashion addicts swap shopping on the high street with working in India‘s cotton fields and clothes factories. Find out whether they could handle a sewing machine and meet the target of two garments a minute and whether their experience changed their throwaway attitude to clothes shopping.
