Continuation from Part 2, today i will share more about buying things.
Sometimes if you buy medicine, electronics, the person at the counter will ask you if you have a loyalty card or something. It’s always good to make a loyalty card if you plan to always buy electronics at the same place. You will get some discount (8-10% of points that you can use to offset your next purchase). Example would be LABI or Yodobashi Camera.
Shop Employee: ポイントカードがお持ちですか (poin-to kaa-do ga o-mo-chi-de-su ka/Do you have a point card)
You: いいえ、ないです(iie, nai desu/No) or はい、もっています (hai, motte imasu/Yes)
If you don’t have a point card, usually the person will ask you if you want to apply for a point card (usually it’s free)
Shop Employee: ポイントカードを作りますか (poin-to kaa-do o tsu-ku-ri-ma-su ka/Do you want to apply for one?) or
Shop Employee: つくりましょうか (tsu-ku-ri-ma-shou ka/Do you want to apply for one?)
You: はい、おねがいします (hai, o-ne-gai-shi-masu/Yes, please)
Usually, you can put in your hotel address. If unsure, ask the shop employee. =)
This will really help to bring savings if you buy lots of electronics.
