    My sister and I went into Brantano today because she needed shoes for work. So, she found the shoes she wanted, so I went to look at the bags while she went to pay for her shoes.

    The woman said they did student discount, so my sister called me over to the counter and asked for my student card.

    However, because my sister was using HER credit card to pay for it, she wasn't able to use MY student discount ??? But, if it was my sister's student discount card, she would have been able to get her student discount while still paying with her own credit card.

    In the end, I had to use MY debit card to buy my sister's shoes in order to use my student discount (obviously my sister paid me back).

    I mean, does anyone think that's just stupid?

    How is it fraud when I am right there with her giving her permission to use my discount?

    It's not yours to give away. The shop gives discount to current students - she's not a current student. You are.
