Just another day at PVR

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˜›

  1. 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.

    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!

  3. 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˜‰

  4. Yes Balu,

    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 😦

  8. 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˜€
