Just another day at PVR

Maestro logoImage via Wikipedia

My sob story with PVR just doesn’t seem to end. I know my blog is starting to look like a complaint box right now but hey am not the bothering type.

Location: PVR Bangalore

Me: Two tickets for XYZ movie

PVR: For xx:xx show?

Me: Yeah exactly

PVR: L10, L11 seats okay

Me: Perfect

PVR: So that would be Rs 300

Me: You accept card?

PVR: Sure we do,err it’s VISA right?

Me: Hmm nope Maestro, Cirrus

PVR: Sorry sir, we don’t accept

Me: But since when… hmm… never mind.. here is the money (good riddance)

Friend: Psst I think they read your blog.

Me: Thanks I couldn’t feel any better..

(now in mind)

Oh god why why.. in case they had to read my blog why that post.. couldn’t they read my auto-cribbing posts? sob sob

For those who are here for the first time: I had blogged earlier about how I was asked reveal my debit card PIN number while buying tickets there. I don’t know if it’s because of my post or not, they have stopped accepting Maestro cards (which require PIN number to be entered); they accept only VISA cards now!

PS: I guess I should stop giving myself too mcuh credit. May be they had some issue with Maestro after all πŸ˜›

Am I missing something? Is Visa signature-only and Master needed a pin? This is definitely a retrograde move in terms of security.

I read your post on PIN too. You need to inform your bank of these establishments and keep writing about it too. What ullus.

@Shefaly
You are right Visa is signature only while Maestro requires PIN number to be entered in the machine. Inform the bank? Hmm that’s something I haven’t done yet. Thanks for the advice!

Hain!!!!! The buggers don’t accept Visa card????? (Read that three times)

Quite strange in today’s time…..

BTW u can call all this “Credit Cards, Me N PVR, A long sour story” πŸ˜‰

Yes Balu,
I had read your earlier post. Now you are scaring people into obedience. Quite a task master you are πŸ™‚
I hope the movie was nice (300 Rs)

Yessss, thats your impact πŸ˜€
And I am little shocked that you really haven’t yet informed corresponding bank yet. We expected more from you πŸ˜›

@Smita
Err no they accept only Visa, you really want me to change the headline? that means I have to loging edit post change headline and save.. groan.. sorry yaar bohath mehnat karna padega πŸ˜‰

@liamdempsey

@Katya

@Reema

@Suda

@Xylene
Dude get a visa or Dude geta life πŸ˜‰
I am shifting jobs and I heard my new employer has HDFC as salary account.. they have VISA debit

Funny!

Me and a friend once ordered a full meal from the McD’s on Brigade Road and realised they don accept any card (dont know about now)…well, neither of us had cash on us…so, i waited for a while, while he went for cash πŸ˜€ the burgers werent crisp by th time we ate it πŸ™

Hmmm… A friend of mine is the manager of PVR… At least, he was a few years ago.. I don’t know if he’s even alive by now! If he is, he’ll still be there! Want me to speak to him about this? πŸ˜€
