Thread: Free albums or 5% discount better.

  1. #1

    Default Free albums or 5% discount better.

    Wanted to post this at consumers corner, but the system won't let me post there.

    Anyway, I just sent approx 320 shots to KT, first time there. They offered me a 5% of the total price or a free album for every 40 shots plus index print.

    At 30cts per piece, my total costs is $96, so a 5% discount works to less than $5. On the other hand, I can get 8 albums instead, but how much are they worth anyway?

    And what's the use of an index print?

    Could any kind soul please enlighten me? Thks.

    Think you do not have 30 posts previously? Anyway, do try out other shops also, you may get better or worse photos. If you get better results then good, if worse then you will learn to appreciate the good stuffs. After a few tries with neg, slides and digital prints, I finally settled on 3 different labs for 3 different medium. Talking about troublesome

    actually take the 5% discount better. You can get the normal 4R album at abt $0.50/album from Fotohub. It's black and chic looking!

    Try CD Alchemy, look for IRene. ALso, PSS members get 50% off. I think you can get the address and contact from pss website: www.pss1950.org

    It's located at Eunos Techpark area, near Bedok Reservoir Road
