    JTS I'm delighted for you. I hope the nausea isn't too bad. Well done you, I hope they found you a bell to ring. See you in five days when you're back in the land of the living.
    Seriously well done.

    Well I have to thank the Elite persons who encouraged me to take the bull by the horns and actually go through to cancellation with sky

    After seeing the half price offer for TV on line this morning I rang again (free phone number so I was quite happy to keep trying)
    Firstly you get connected to nice CS on the sub continent so I asked to be put through to the retentions team but the chap said I needed the welcome back team
    When I was put through I did it all by the book this time, wrote down the name of the person who I was talking to and made sure he was in the right department.

    I said we were going through cancellation and if there were any offers I could have. He gave me a figure, only slightly more than this years so we agreed. He read the terms and conditions, I asked about the monthly direct debit amounts and added them to the calendar.
    I logged onto My Sky as he applied the deals so I could see thst everything was correct - last year it took 2 additional attempts to get the bill adjusted so I had 2 lots of credit which more or less paid for 2 months.
    He also read out the notes applied to the account.
    So we now have half price TV, half price unlimited fibre and full price line rental and our bill is down to £47.11 - a saving of nearly £30 on the original price increase



    And on the sky TV frontage I logged onto My Sky this morning to see what offers there were and it now says 50% off sky TV
    So I am wondering now if its worth another call to see what else they might offer me for the fibre/line rental bit

    This only brings me down to what I was offered on the first call so its not that much of an improvement

    You caught me during the two seconds that I was here in the last week. I will go now - don't want to ruin one of the biggest glitches of all that, typically, is here whenever I am not. Just been doing other things for the past week (typically).

    EDIT: Good morning afternoon btw.

"Family members" have accounts too and (their accounts) helpfully process any instore receipts - they didn't enter their address, as they tell me it wasn't requested during the sign up to A (which you need to do to process APGs), so their account is not linked to any address that may have other family members with accounts.

    Did you know that some online registration systems do not require full address details, so if you were registering for A website entering letter number (number), number letter letter (any combination) will be accepted by the form, it may just give some message about not delivering to that address and then just ask you to enter an email and choose a password ... no other details then required ...

    I am sure people know you can register more than one Gmail account (other free email account providers are available ...).

    Gmail also has the benefit that one account can give you many email address opportunities linked to the same incoming email address.

    So:

    anonymous@gmail.com
    as your main address means you can use:

    anonymous@gmail.com
    a.nonymous@gmail.com
    an.onymous@gmail.com
    ano.nymous@gmail.com
    etc

    by inserting a full stop anywhere in the name before @ (or indeed more than one . if you needed to).

    AND
    anonymous@googlemail.com
    a.nonymous@googlemail.com
    an.onymous@googlemail.com
    ano.nymous@googlemail.com
    etc

    as @gmail.com and @googlemail.com also go to the same place .

    Most systems see these all as different email addresses, even though an email sent to any of the above will all go to the same email inbox .
