    Best thing to do is get a free provider google/hotmail etc.

    if your email at AOL is something like

    thisismyemailaddress@aol.com

    try checking to see if free provider has a similar one free

    thisismyemailaddress@freeprovider.com

    easier to remember and easier for others to change their address book to.
    PS best to have a very private addy and a public one, helps keep junkmail down on "real" email address.

    I was going to advise the same - I broke free years ago when I realised I would lose my email address when changing internet provider (or they could come up with a charge to keep it). I switched to Gmail as my main email account and I was then free to walk away if required from V1rgin. I also took the Oporto out to undubscribe from mailing lists. It took a little effort to login to banks, utilities etc to change the email address but it didnt really take that long.

    As it happens, my old NTL email is still live as I have negotiated well each year .

    Was it you !

    I won't say anymore details to identify you, but I was 2 self checkouts behind

    Waited for about 10 minutes to have a chat but couldn't wait any longer

    I was going to use a large APG myself, but decided not to after seeing the supervisor grilling you.

    Supervisor attention really doesn't worry me especially as A is not a normal store for me anyway. Half the problem actually seemed to be the stafff didn't know how to do an apg rather than suspicion. It did make one cross lady wait for a long time behind us but we did warn her as she started to unload onto our belt that it was likely to take a while as we were using vouchers.

    Sub 20 it seems to work just by keying item code the scanning bc on original receipt and then confirm voucher at pay stage, no need to get receipt marked or even deposit apg into voucher slot - oucky really as I was able to self process two 19+ vouchers after the supervisor had been called to process the 22 one.
