Yay! Free Lunch!

I've often wondered about these refer-a-friend-and-get-free-stuff things; such as what do they get out of it? But one of my mother's friends and her accountant friend have looked into them, and they do seem to be a viable business, and therefore probably legit.

Apparently they work out a deal with established services for payment for referrals; we sign up to the service, and they pay the get-free-stuff people a little bit for it - which, of course, adds up to the value (and no doubt some profit, too) over the course of the n referrals.

If you're interested, my mother's friend found this one of Apple stuff. She also recommended choosing one of the free services (such as Lovefilm, which has a free trial and is also good in itself (my mother uses them already)).

There's no such thing as a free lunch

Except actually there is…

A couple of Thurdays ago, I want to Cafe Xanana ("bar, bistro, grill", but no mention of "cafe"...). According the clock in Xanana's kitchen it was 5 minutes before the advertised end of food service, but they'd already stopped serving. I got out my phone and sent an email to feedback@sunion.warwick.ac.uk while I was still angry.

After an intermediate email to check a few details, Nick Seagrave (CCDO) emailed me back to say I could have a free main course for two people by way of an apology.

So, since it was still on the lunch menu the next time I happened to go there, I got a free lunch. Admitedly I also had a drink and a side order that I had to pay for, but the main course was free.

I have to compliment them on their after–complaint service…
