I just had a thought last night.
Way back when, November 2004 actually, 41% of people surveyed on ValueIreland.com admitted that they didn’t check any of their bills before paying them.
Given all the overcharging incidents we’ve seen since then, I wonder has that number gone up? I guess that more people are checking their bills these days at the moment anyway, just in case they can find a way of cutting their expenses.
Do you check your bills? When you see a special offer from a business, do you believe them? Are you always wary of the dreaded small print?
Do you think that businesses are still more concerned with making a quick buck off us than providing us with value for money services and building a lasting relationship?
In short, do you trust that Irish businesses that you’re a customer of at the moment, or that you’re thinking of becoming a customer of in the future?
