Canon Philippines - Esprit Watch Promo

This review is not all about the camera I bought  last December since I lost my old one (crap!). I have no complains when it comes to my Canon IXUS 105; from its looks to performance, I am proud owner of Canon camera. So what is this blog all about? It's all about a poor execution of a holiday promo! Instead of making the consumers tell themselves , "It was a good buy", in the end it is all about disappointments and headache!

I purchased my Canon camera last December 2010 not knowing that it comes with a free Esprit watch. "Sweet"! I told the lady who assisted me in Anson's, Makati. All I need to do is register my purchase online and provide my personal details needed for the promo. I did all of these the same night. What is more interesting with the promo was, they will deliver the watch after 2 weeks right in front of your doorstep. That is even sweeter!

After a month, I have already forgotten all about this promo. Why? Because the watch was never delivered! What happened to the promise of delivering the watch after 2 weeks? They ran out of supply... Poor planning I'd say, that is what happened!

Then today somebody knocked early. It was a delivery from LBC. 

When I opened the delivery, this is what I saw...
Esprit Watch on Fierce Blogs
Esprit Watch on Fierce Blogs
Esprit Female Watch on Fierce Blogs
When I registered, I made sure that I specified my gender as male. And by far, I have not met a person named Eric who is a lady.So why the lady-like design? Talk about carelessness and stupidity!

Do I intend to make another call and complain? I guess it's not really worth the time and headache! I am just considering this promo as a sheer disappointment -  a bad marketing collaboration that resulted to nothing but dissatisfaction from a customer.
Anyways, I still love my Canon camera!

Hi Josephine,

I feel for you. I can just imagine the frustration. I got mine after 2 month and this is nothing compared to a year of waiting. Please email me privately and introduce yourself. My email address is

By the way, I do not work for Canon, I am also a consumer who got victimized by poor marketing scheme!

Look forward to you email so I can help you.

Searched for review regarding delivery service of canon and i stumbled on this one. Oh no. My case was about the photocopy machine i bought from them at canon sm megamall. The Manager informed us they can deliver at our province (iloilo). So we set the date to dec 20. Dec 20 came and no machine was delivered.

what was worse now is that they promised to deliver it jan 3 again and again.. no delivery was made. The next day they texted my brother and said sorry for the delay and that they will deliver jan 4 (today). again, no delivery came. Now this become so frustrating and i thought canon was a big company. ??
