    Please can I ask has anyone ever had a receipt rejected from Greenjim? One of my receipts from Sunday was rejected, I cant figure out why - 4 clear pics with the date visible. Anyway I have sent a message.
    OHs account - my receipt went through fine

    Receipt pig rejected the cattery receipt as being too old even though its dated 11/06 so I've sent that one again. Just out of curiosity I sent them a cattery receipt in January and it was accepted - always worth a try uploading the receipts of local companies.

    another question or several

    Has anyone had recently any emails and requests to complete surveys from our lovely beauty product people who reside north of the border?

    Just running through emails now and realised I've had nothing from them since April. There is a huge raft of new items on the list today but not a single invite has come my way.

    Also anyone who is on the Mr Shoes panel. Did you all complete the re registering email that came in mid May? And then did you all get another set of emails to re re register on June 1st?
    I did the earlier one thinking that was all that was needed but then 3 emails came on June 1st while we were away and if I try to complete the form now it just comes up with a fault message
    I've emailed them to see if I am still on the panel or not.

    So I might have fallen off the list for Mr Shoes and North of the Border, Christmas trees have not sent me anything since January, Buzz wanted me to re complete all of my baseline surveys and the last time they sent me an invite was June last year ....

    nobody wants me to test anything ....

    Shoes...I'm still waiting for the email that everyone else had....
    I did go onto the website after the 1st june deadline and re register which has been confirmed and also registered OH...he has subsequently had an invite email for moist toilet tissue which he's completed but no idea if we will receive it or not ...as usual if it arrives it's a bonus.

    The testing does seem very down this year on previous years in general....I've counted up and have actually only had a couple from scotland,3 from shoes and one from clicks.

    I think I have all but given up with bzz....

    Have you tried philips product testing...might be worth giving them a google...I got a rather nice thing to test from them a few weeks back.

    a reminder about Quidco High Street - log on, look under "ways to earn" near the top pf the page and High street is the top item.
    Register all of your visa or maestro cards - you can do up to 5 so include your emergency once a year card.
    Then you click on the boxes to activate any stores you might visit or would do if a really good glitch came along. There about 40 places eg quite a lot of eating places like Stonehouse I know a few Elite visit, The Works, another useful one, Halfords, Body Shop, HSamuels etc
    They need re activating every 28 days so put it on the calendar.

    Then just your card as normal when you visit a store - I got a tiny bit of cashback when I did a Debenhams purchase in January and don't I wish I had kept up with this list before I went into Go Outdoors and spend over £70

    I don't know if everyone has the same list - OHs looks subtly different and I cant see how ...

    another number to go on the blocked lists

    02073265532

    an Indian lady claiming to be from BT saying there were discounts that could be applied to the account including 3 months free line rental - she gave the correct home number and asked if I paid bills by direct debit.
    Nasty scam this as superficially it sounded legit and an older, less wordly wise person would think this was really a BT call
    Needless to say we are not with BT but I let her ramble through her speech ...

    This is the 2nd call I've had today. The earlier one was also an Indian lady with an entire speech to read out about the infections and viruses on my computer. Again I let her go through her entire speech and then I asked her how to switch the computer on.
    She asked if it was my computer and I said it was my OHs.
    She asked to speak to my OH and I said he was out.
    She asked when he would be back and I said he was in prison
    and then she gave up
