It has been almost 3 and half months since I’ve started working. And since I m as corporate bitch now this post is specially for beings like me, though would be useful for future the puppies :D.
Most of us get Sodexo/full circle meal coupon as part of the salary because of tax redemption from government. And trust me if you do not work or live near Hi-tech city its real pain to spend these specially if u get 2600 Rs. Worth of them every month.
But the good part is other than restaurants many super markets do accept them but all of them have their own rules and based on them I’ve classified them in 4 categories…
1. Best friend of Coupon holder :- The Super market which accept meal coupons for anything they sell and the best of all, even returns currency note as change in return of coupons. So far only Aditya Birla Group’s More (formerly Trinetra) falls in this category.
2. Will do (Kaam chalaau): – Well, these guys are strict about the money in return policy but they you can still buy anything they sell with your coupons. Heritage’s Fresh@ is the only place in this category I’ve found so far.
4. Strict no no(Bhagvaan na kere):- Almost all big brand supermarkets accept these meal coupons but there are few private one like Max fresh, suvidha and all in my locality who doesn’t. For the simple reason that they have to pay tax for it …
PS: – Ultimately it’s all about saving the tax.
PS: — There are also trendy options like Meal Cards… which look just like the debit or credit cards and works at swap machines and ATM’s too.
PS: — A total goodie-goodie post after last blast.
