    Good morning.

    Have any of you coming off the BGas Fix made decisions on who you are moving to? Although they are unknown and reviews, aren't brilliant on the energy club blurb, I am considering 1resa as it is a 12 month fix with no penalty (so I can switch again if they mess up/something cheaper comes along). Has anyone found a cashback incentive to switch or a better deal? Maybe one of the other comparison sites through TCB/Q would be a better route. My thinking is the gas and electric will come through no matter who is supplying it, and you are protected by the regulator if they mess up.

    I was going to wait til the end of the month, as the current tariff is cheaper than anything around. Apparently if you change within 21 days of the end of your tariff they have to extend it till the move, so I was going to eek it out a bit longer.

    But then I decided on the 2 year Ovo fix and that has been so popular they are only guaranteeing it will be available until tomorrow, so need to move over today.

    Having had such a hassle and delay getting the last move correctly in place, I am not going with anyone with bad feedback this time!

    Good Morning

    LEJC, I know what you mean, these things do take ages to use up.

    I only have a basic toiletry stash - no make up or complicated hair stuff - just shower gels, shampoo, conditioners.

    A few weeks ago I decided to use up a bar of soap so I put it in the shower. Still going strong weeks later! So my shower gel stash currently remains untouched.

    Re unlock code
    If you put a new sim into some phones they automatically ask for an unlock code when started up, have you tried that?

    I didn't bother with the Aussie stuff this time....I still have a stock to rival A built up from earlier in the year at the Mr Shoes advantage card deal.

    I always look at Tiny's S and superdrug haul pics and am always impressed...it's probably a blessing that our superdrug became a savers and the nearest one now is too far across a complicated traffic flow for me to get that involved with on a regular basis.

    They stopped taking new accounts a few months ago, at which point they removed the app, but did re-open download capability for a couple of weeks and then closed it again.
    They clearly have an allocated sample number which they don't want to exceed.
    Best not to delete this app for any reason as you won't get it back again !

    Good Morning you lovely lot.

    I haven't posted on here in quite a while, life and all that. I'm ready to get back into glitching ways. I've had a look over the last few days and am I right in thinking that if I buy 12 x palmolive shower gels they will get me a good APG? Who do they compare to please as I couldn't see anywhere!

    Any other good glitches about?

    It's nice to be back

    In the end I think we went back to our existing insurer purely because they then offered to match the quotes online.

    Car insurance is a really difficult one to make specific recommendations on simply because what works for one person doesn't always work for the next and its probably very postcode weighted.
