    Say no to 0870, 0844, 0845! Call them for free! 9th May 10 at 11:43 AM
    I have a great site for everyone to use...

    Instead of calling expensive numbers starting with 0870,0845,0844 that aren't FREE with your mobile contract- the site has a list of alternative numbers (landlines) you can call.

    For example, you want to call Natwest telephone banking- the normal number is 0845 610 1234 (costs 25 pence a minute) from mobiles. Go to SAY NO TO 0870 DOT COM, click on 'search to find an alternative number', type in the company name e.g Natwest, and you'll see a list of alternative numbers (landlines)... so now you can save £££'s,....

    No more huge bills!!

    Hope you find this useful!

    This is a money saving site, where you post information that will help people in FUTURE... It helped me, and yes, it was after I spent £££ on calls to premium rate numbers!

    It's not a pointless thread at all.

    Now that would be much, much better. It would also demonstrate how confident others are of the sort of advice.

    The trouble is, it seems that those who post, say, about competitions seem to end up with a big pile of 'thanks'.

    What difference does it make if its been posted before? If the OP helps even a small number of people who perhaps havent already read the other threads (lets face it there are thousands of threads on here) and didnt know about it, then whats the problem?

    ...and presumably anyone who has thanked the OP found the thread useful!!
