    They probably at least check your account to see if you have a qualifying spend or not. They might ask for proof you were invited to this offer

    Personally, I was hoping that virgin were just slow in applying the points and that if i got livechat to add them i might get lucky when the delayed automatic points finally go on too. But looking on hukd it seems the automatic points have gone on already for some people

    I did get 500 points goodwill gesture in the interim tho..

    True - if only we noticed this offer when the glitch was on earlier this week.

    Yes I saw that hampy....looks delicious.

    Do you have any supporting walls left in your house?

    Been choosing tiles and sanitary ware for the bathrooms this week. Gawd the price of tiles differs drastically, even thinking of driving up to Stoke to look at them

    Been to loads of tile places, one of them was Tile Giant. Have fallen in love with some which are just over £34 sqm but googled the sku and found them here for £10 a sqm less

    May buy a sample from Tile Giant but order from Tilemagic, would save the drive

    Have bought Aldi matured ones in the past, seemed fine to me
