Terrible

published

Rude and nasty sales person

published

They expect you to give them $1500 without letting you do research. I googled the company infront of the sales rep and he got offended when I showed him the reviews. He got really nasty and abusive. He said "how dare I not believe him". Yes a guy I just met 10mintues ago and never heard of the company ever, How dare I not give him my money without doing research first.
Don't let them trick you to give them your money on the spot and not let you do research first.
Buyer beware, always do your research first before you buy something that's to good to be true.

Perfect!

I've been a member since December 2018 and am very happy so far. I've received discounts on several occasions when dining out and even got cash back from the holiday we took in January. I really can't fault it and being transferable my sister has used it as well. Reading some of these reviews here I feel I should mention that the sales person who came out to see me was very professional and thorough. He explained everything in detail and was very patient (as I work in a busy retail outlet and had several interruptions). I really couldn't fault him or the product and am looking forward to saving a lot more in the years to come.

Pushy sales tactics

published

The sales people from this company are very pushy and sly. I was pushed into purchasing their membership which I don't even use as the restaurant listed around my area have either cancelled their participation or were not aware they had been signed up. Like what many of the reviewers have said, DON'T BE FOOLED. I wished I had read these reviews before I agreed to meet with these [Cencord Words Removed] merchants: BUYERS BEWARE!!


Dont be fooled stay away

published

Dont think twice about being forced into a membership. The salesman knows how to do his job well. All starts off good but the minute you say no turns nasty.
Wasnt told we couldnt cancel but when we tried was referred to debt collector.
Terrible company to deal with needs to be shut down. Not all restaurants aware of card or offers customer need to inform them then they need to check with manager all very frustrating.
Have had friends sign up but they have cut up there cards as not impressed


BE CAREFUL

published

I was forced into meeting with one of the sales reps and after seeing the 'bottom line' cost there was no way I could physically afford it as I work part time and currently studying at University. Sales rep got really defensive upon me saying no.


Very forceful

Terrible

After they called to come into the office and try to sell this card, we said we would think about it. We didn't go through with it and they pursued entered a default in out credit file as they had asked us to sign that the rep had visited us which they used that as us purchasing the card and not paying for it.

Save your money go to Dimmi's

published

Had a similar experience to another customer, decided not to go ahead with it 2 days after the grace period and was threatened with legal action. Decided I'd pay for it anyway rather than go through the trouble only to find out the service severely lacked any decent restaurants near my area. THEN the one restaurant that I did want to try informed me they cancelled their dealings with Conoisseur Club (even though the CC website still had the restaurant listed).

Seems these days a lot of restaurants are dropping out because I checked the listings just before writing this review and there seemed to be less than 30 restaurants listed in Melbourne's inner city. Pretty pathetic considering how much restaurants deal with Dimmi's and such.


Restaurants, vineyards,hotels,wines THE LIST GOES ON

published

I am an owner of a business and I purchased this card as I dine out once a week.
At first I wasn't sure but after using it you actually do get the red carpet treatment. I saved 25% off the bill taking my staff out for a group dinner which I do once a month.
I have also used the card at the Hunter Valley long weekend.
Bought some wine and ate at a beautiful restaurant in pokolbin!
Bookings.com is also great!

Fantastic card

published

I purchased this card a few months back. The card has been nothing but a benefit to both the company and us, It was a great buy and in s very short time we have already got our money back. I would definitely recommend this card to people who enjoy dining out .

Buyer beware

published

I was told that their would be restaurants locally in my area of Sydney west... but once i paid i got access. ...and NOTHING!!! Out my way.. asked for a refund as it was complete false advertising. Then refused to pay my 2 final payments.
They threatened "consumer law "antics.
I don't really need to keep going right ???

Don't waste your money by paying a joining fee

published

Don't waste your money!
Connoisseur Club are losing businesses as times goes on and value for money is not there as perhaps once was when the company was at their peak.
There are too many other companies offering better deals without any memberships.
I also agree with previous customer complaints in the past of not reaching staff on the phone.

If you want a gold card just ask, I have 1 collecting dust and prefer to get better discounts through other companies promoting better offers.
Do you want me to publicly show the much better promotions out there ???

Give It A Miss

published

Unprofessional, the cold call i received, friendly enough but I'm on the DO NOT CALL REGISTER, their first mistake, the caller refused to tell me the all out cost but did say about $4:50 a week second mistake, did not email details as promised 3 rd mistake, come appointment time no show and a call after the fact 4th mistake.

Other concerns you can't do your due diligence before hand to see if the number if companies in your area are worth your time and money, so what is to hide? Or is this the gimmick to SELL in person?

Not that cheap after all

Excellent value for money

published

I have had the card for a few years now. I use the site alot to find somewhere different to go for dinner or lunch most weekends. Have saved a fortune over the years. So not only does it save me money it makes me try new and exciting places, both here in Melbourne or when i travel interstate for work. If ever i have had to contact the company they have been very responsive and always very willing to help out....nothing has ever been too much trouble!

Very satisfied with savings

published

There is no doubt that you can save quite a lot of money if you are a regular diner. Overall, I am satisfied with the benefits the card has to offer and my only gripe is that I wish there was a greater selection of restaurants in our area to choose from. I love the fact that there are no restrictions on the days/times you can dine and I'm always excited to see which new restaurants will join.. Please get more restaurants onboard in The Hills! I'm also looking forward to using my card in HK when we head over early next year.

Hi Rick,
Thanks for the positive review. We're working on getting a greater selection of restaurants, keep an eye on the "latest additions" on the home page and Facebook.
