Q: Got a free dental voucher at expat show in Beijing. Is it legit?

Got a voucher to get a free consultation and cleaning at an expensive international dental clinic at the expat show in beijing. It almost seems too good to be true. Has anyone ever used a similar voucher? Is it legit or are there hidden fees?

legal and no hidden fees in general.

 

the trick is: more relevant or irrelevant dental consultations could be offered to you once you get in with your free voucher, while your confirmation for those are required of course, though the extra consultations may be or may not be necessary at all, or may not be that necessary at least.  hold your mind, check your teeth based on how much the voucher is worth and ignore pretty nurse's pitches, that'll be all right.

I got one maybe one year ago, good for a check up and teeth cleaning service.  Then the sales pitch began, like all my teeth must come out, repaired cavities needed to be redone, etc.  If you ignore those, yes, they are legit

Depends on how you got it and who gave it to you. I entered some contests recently and won some prizes from a different site but that site was trustworthy since they do have a magazine running in Beijing. If the person that gave it to you looked shady or was not employed at that place that you went to it's probably some type of come on. Don't trust people at those shows they had people selling fake tickets at the car show that I attended. I bet you the guy that gave it to you was standing outside wasn't he? Yeah, if he was it's not legit!

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
