What companies are you 'loyal' to?

Fed up talking videogames? Why?

When it comes to beer, I'm a fan of Grolsch and Kronenbourg.

I used to do this too. No company loyalties here.

I am Google's bitch. I'm a big fan of Gmail, and I'm becoming increasingly impressed by their other products, particularly Google Documents lately.

I'd champion Virgin Media to anyone who could get that rather than a broadband service that requires a BT phone line, if only to save on that additional expense.

I always get Hi-Tec Magnum boots.

Aside from that it's either a case of whatever suits, or quite often being anti-brand - I never buy designer clothes and such.

Of course I did, I'm a gamer.

In terms of electronics I prefer Panasonic stuff because it's pretty much always built well and functions reliable for a long time.

Lea & Perrins for the Worcestershire Sauce, other than that it depends on a mix of reviews, previous experience and budget - possibly convenience for supermarkets and the like.

I'm also a regular visitor to my local Shell petrol station, as they are the cheapest in town. 1.09 for a litre of petrol, 1.19 for diesel, bitches.

That nostalgia is now entrenched in me. Argos can do no wrong and I'd glady march into battle and die for Mr. Argos or whomever it is that sits atop Argos Towers.


Other than that and the Kettle Chips company, I have no company loyalties whatsoever.

Original Source shower gel-particularly the mint and tea tree variety. A quick blast of that around your scrote in the morning certainly blows the cobwebs away.

That reminds me, I stick with Head And Shoulders Classic shampoo, because it always makes my hair feel nice, and Imperial Leather soap, because it's one fo the few that doesn't bring me out in spots.

Sony Ericsson for my phones. That's about it (aside from what I've discussed in the beer thread).

I USED to be loyal to Future. :x

The traitors.

Other than that i don't stay loyal to any company. I just get the product that i need that is the best for me at that time.

Nike - I've yet to find another company that make trainers that are as comfortable for me.
Specsavers - Thorough eye examination, great customer service
Sega - I used to be at least, for years they were my favourite games company. They not the same company since they became Sammys bitch
Panasonic - Most electrical goods
Sony - Earphones
Orange - While I found the ISP side of their company to be beyond a joke I love their customer service dept for the phone side. They were brilliant when I lost my uninsured phone.

I hate Nike because their boxes are far too big. Working in a warehouse, it's a major problem.

Unless you're being sarky (badly, sorry), no it's not.

You say you get the product you need that is best for you at the time. Assuming, as you do, that you don't buy a different product every single time you go shopping, and you have one that you favour above others, you are loyal to that brand. Timescales don't matter - loyalty can change, but the moment you start to regularly purchase one single good is the moment you become loyal to it, like it or not. For example, if you were to buy a loaf or two in your weekly shop, would you actively choose a different brand of loaf every time so as to avoid any accusation of loyalty?
