Advertisement is your invitation

Getting paid for visiting a store after you buy something in that store.

The other day, several of us were discussing that when you go into a store, you should get paid for buying something in that store.

The store invites you in by their advertisement. When you are invited into a home it’s for a reason: to eat, to visit, to stay overnight, to talk, and many times just to break bread with the owner of the home.

Each time you visit a store, you give, in one way, something to the owner: advice, an exchange of opinions. The owner of the store gives you courtesy.

When you read an advertisement, that means that the owner of the store has something that you want and you are spending your time to go and see that item.

This is where you should get paid something by the store for taking your precious time to look at the item that you were invited to see by their advertisement. 

After you spent time looking at the advertised item and you decide that you do not want the item, the owner of the store should give you something for your visit.

You took your precious time away from something that you could be doing at home just to see the advertised item, and you get no thanks for looking. 

In some cases, you do get 'paid' for visiting a store, such as receiving free coffee; a free pen; a free pad of notepaper; free water; or even in some cases, a free soda.

You wonder if you are being paid for coming into the store or is the owner is just being polite to you. 

Some owners will give you a free gift when you buy a big expensive item from the store, which means that the store owner is thanking you for shopping in his store. But this usually takes place if you spend thousands of dollars in the store. 

So what do you think of this idea: “Getting paid for visiting a store, after you buy something in that store?”
