every $30 receipt, you get 1 stamp. either 5stamps +(higher) cash or 10stamps+(lower)cash to purchase the items. you can take a look at what is on offer. I used 10 stamps and i think I paid for the Chef knife @$9.90?. paring knife and scissors at 5.90/3.90 if not wrong. I find it cheap as the price for those no brand small knife/scissors are about there. i have 4 pair of scissors now. thought can use the new one for cutting plant/paper, came back home, feel sayang :lol:

i would think so..I only got to know how to read the printed number that comes together with the receipt not too long ago. so only bought the knifes. i think better control myself, there should be other point purchase coming out on frequent basis.

Unless I can get the items completely free with the points, and I actually need it, I don't usually bother. It just clutters up the house, and still costs money.
