    Mine is not HSBC either - coke ones say 30 April in 'how to redeem' but 3 & 5 ones say 31 July (even though shown as 30/4 in top corner). Is it just me?

    Lost 20 of APG vouchers, they were showing expire 06/01 and I had planned on using them tonight to place an order. Now I'm not sure whether to ring and complain and risk flagging my account or just take the hit. What would the Elite do?

    Hmm - I wonder if they did a credit search - I normally restrict credit searches to 4 evenly spread over the year and look for at least 100 value in whatever offer I am taking up (stoozing credit card, bank account switch etc). Something to bear in mind?

    You should be able to get the unit fully discounted to free, so just the 30 day contract, and then call Three the next day to cancel under cooling off

    Evening all, if anyone is passing Mr Shoes its worth checking the clearance section. Have been into two stores recently and found some heavily discounted items
    i.e http://www.boots.com/soap-and-glory-bright-and-beautiful-6-in-1-energising-radiance-serum-10197015
    was down to 1.25 and still went through as buy one get one half price.

    If you find rtc shampoo there is a coupon for 100 points wyb 2 shampoo in their recent coupon mailing.

    I bet its even worse trying to figure it all out as an employer

    Yes, it really is.

    When you include things like Students Loan repayments, Auto Enrollment Pensions, Attachment of Earnings and other fines and Court orders, constant surveys from the Office for National Statistics, you actually can't do it yourself, and have to pay specialist companies so adding more overhead to businesses.

    Sometimes I wonder why I do it, rather than just get a job working for a big company.

    Hi well I don t know really its for my mifi which I use when out and about . I dont watch films with it its mainly to get Wi-fi for o2 but sometimes I forget to switch it off so would it still use up the data ?
    Originally posted by emerald21
    Should be fine for just that, so long as you remember to turn it off.

    But with the free SIM if you run out of data it is no harm, it is PAYG so there is no need to put money on it. Get a second SIM, and if the first runs out of data switch to the second !

    Happy new year...

    After a Xmas break I'm back. And still pondering the AP thing. Can't get hold of a phone that it works on without buying one.

    Are people still getting decent prizes?

    Also, if anyone is booking travelodge there is 50% off on Friday and Sunday stays on their site. Just got a family room for 18 quid in half term.

    yes I went to B & M - 2 sets of silver tree baubles and silver wire bauble hangers (useful also for plants ) - 30p - happy enough with that. I would have liked wrapping paper, if only some for wrapping Christmas shoe boxes - might have another look over the weekend .

    Take the hit it will only highlight your account, could then start looking back at your previous orders and apgs. Not worth loosing an account over.

    Panicking a bit here can anyone please advise

    Kitten went for his 2nd vac and micro chip last night.

    Tonight ive felt a pea size moveable lump sort of at the part where his front leg joins his body.

    I've googled and I see that lumps are common after the vacs but everything is saying the lump is at the sight of injection which is scruff of his neck. His is a couple of inches away.

    He was checked over by vet at 1st vac and also at 2nd vac. I've thought I've noticed lumps on him before but that was just his ribs and this is different. I'm feeling guilty if ive missed this as I could of asked the vet last night.

    Has anyone any experience please ? Tia xx

    Edit thinking about it cats protection league checked him over for ticks as he came from somewhere where they were common so I think they would have spotted it had it been there before?

    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up & never give up.

    It may be worth it but I wouldn’t be spending a lot on a new phone. Hopefully someone has phone suggestions now the A3 promo has ended.
