But that's all neither here nor there. I just wanted to admit that I'm not fond of Chase to begin with. They've got a commercial on the air right now that really bugs me. The intent of the ad is to let you know about some new service that gives you a 3% refund(?), discount(?) on things you buy with your Chase Debit Card. I haven't paid close enough attention to know the details, but, hey...that sounds like a fine thing.
But to make their point, they show a couple of brothers(?) who are constantly racing to see who gets to pay for stuff and therefore qualify for the cashback reward. Brother #1 is constantly shown at the cashier when brother #2 swoops into frame and swipes his card through the reader before the guy actually buying stuff can pay for it. SCORE! Brother #2 is always the one getting the 3% reward "on stuff you buy anyway"!
Except it's not stuff brother #2 is buying for himself. He's picking up the tab for brother #1. The real winner here isn't brother #2 who gets the 3% reward...it's brother #1 who is apparently getting 100% of everything he buys paid for by his idiot sibling.
Maybe the fact that the theme music from Deliverance is playing in the background should have been a clue that the commercial involves questionable breeding practices.
