That’s How They Get You: San Francisco’s Costco Sells Jollibee Gift Cards But Our Sole Jollibee is All Shut Down

Monday, December 20th, 2010

Now, you’d think that San Francisco would have a straight-outta-Quezon City Jollibee Chicken & Burgers fast foodery but you’d be wrong. We used to have one down near that whole Lapu Lapu, Mabini, Bonifacio, Rizal alley maze situation in the SoMA, but  it’s gone. Our sole JB is all gone.

So what’s the point of getting this card to give away for Christmas if all you’re doing is forcing the recipient to journey to another county or state to cash it in?

Next thing you know, our Costco #144 will be selling Sonic gift cards.
