    Halifax Rewards - £5 per month
    C00p - £150 switching bonus
    HSBC - £150 switching, plus £50 if you stay the year
    M&S - £100 M&S vouchers, plus £10 a month

    T&Cs for each of the above and limits on balances where the higher % will be paid, some depending on set amount per month paying in, most need 2 DDs switching, some have a high interest regular saver savings account too.

    SanT are dropping their rate to 1.5% from 3% (major drop compared to the base rate drop - funny how they punish savers!) so may not longer be worth having, depending on how much you can put in.

    Some pointers on http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/banking/compare-best-bank-accounts but remember also to check cashback sites.

    Blind Pig is back on Shopmium for those who want haven't bought. Ends in 11 hours.

    Edit - just had a quick look on the website (logged in) and it says it has finished but you can upload receipts for any purchased before 6.20pm today.

    ... wonders out loud if my purchase from yesterday may qualify...

    Edit 2 - the valid dates are stated as:
    "You may request your cash back for all purchases done before Monday 10/10/16 - 6:20PM. "
    And also:
    This product is available from 04/10/2016, whilst stocks last and at a maximum deadline of 10/10/2016.

    Not been around much today, busy doing nothing

    I had intended a NSD day today until I started my catchup from yesterday. By just before tea time I gave in to Mr T and just had to pop out for some wine . I'm stocked up with enough for now, just bought the Gardy Stamp red and white and they both worked as expected. Thanks OP xx

    Yes I've got Optiwell - I cant figure out if its a long life product or one you find in the chiller fridges ...

    And this reminds me I need to do some Hipp print offs - I've run out of magazine ones now and I don't know what my store is going to think of print off MOCS ....
