Do advertising agents really think we are this shallow and/or stupid?

The new Citi card campaign features a woman whose friend is appalled that her boyfriend is always paying for their dates so he can get the points on his credit card.  (The said friend offers to pay using the same card.)  So let’s get this straight.  It’s terrible to be taken out for free dinners in nice places because the person who paid got some miniscule little perk for their spending using the card?  Am I missing something or is that the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen in a commercial.  Just to be clear anyone reading this who wants to buy me dinner, my email is houndentenornyc@aol.com.  (I’m in the Dallas area now, btw.)  🙂  Really, pretty much any time.

  1. As a dyke, I go dutch on almost every date. If I found a woman who’d spring for nice dinners every time, I think I’d want her to take all the perks she could get.
