    Evening peeps.

    I bought one of the serrano hams tonight at A's that were reduced to 10. God knows why!! I don't even know what to do with it!!!

    Any suggestions, apart from wrapping chicken breasts?

    I bought 2 of them this morning. I'll let you know what we end up doing with them.

    Think we might end up doing a cheese wine and serrano evening. I hope everyone won't think I misspelt Soprano and expect me to get up singing.

    It appears not all B ones have the contactless - I found two other branches lacking, per your pics. The one I found that has it has a small raised box to the bottom left of the ATM shelf bit, with the contactless symbol.
    Originally posted by pacifica9
    The B one I tried earlier with NWide and HesBC didnt work as it said not with these cards. San worked for both .

    For San I must have looked dodgy scanning the machine as there were no signs or labels to show where the contactless scanner was . It is bottom right next to the touch pad.

    Have used M&S gift cards on the last Dine in for 10 offer which was an effective 75% discount on individual prices. Cash paid = NIL.

    but now I know to say its classed as a MOC rather than a gift card - is that correct?

    I have data on the phone.



    I will give this a go. It worked in the pub okay last night, and there is really bad signal there.

    Edit: Just looked, wifi was off. Put wifi on, and my spend amounts have come through, but no parcels yet.

    it brings it all back as to why I am willing to pay a premium for apple.
