    Havent said anything earlier but have some fantastic news to share. DS and his gf are expecting a baby in June. They didnt think she could have children so this has come as a complete surprise to them. So sweet, bless them. Shes had a few scans now and all is fine, theyre pretty sure its a boy .

    They live in Spain so DH, DD2, DGD1 and I have booked flights to go out and see them next month .

    Dont want to tempt fate so not taking any baby bits out there yet but it hasnt stopped me buying them .

    Mothercare have a fab sale on, loads of stuff in the clearance just depends on what each store has to clear so going further afield tomorrow to have a nosey in a larger store.

    CJJ- what phone are you using? If it doesn't have NFC it won't work. I'm thinking of giving up as I don't know which phone to buy and I'm scared that I'll get the wrong one and waste money.

    Really want to play though!!!

    This list allegedly captures those with NFC but as A3 is not listed it is not 100% accurate so I would check against other information too.

    And I thought RL was going to be easier in 2018!!

    Hampy, so pleased for you. Bubbs, hope the move goes well. Can’t remember who had that horrible experience in the shop with the twice charged jacket but please tell us how you got on with the bank.

    QQ for anyone that has used 10 meal on AP, if you spend less than 10, do you keep the change on the app, like a gift card?

    What does it say on the voucher/giftcard ...? I will go and check

    PEx - e-gift tandcs say if only part of a card is used, a new one should be issued to the value of the balance (https://www.pizzaexpress.com/Terms-and-Conditions-Pages/eGift).

    Mands - use only once, transaction must be equal to or greater than giftcard value

    C0sta - normal e-gift, balance remains on card

    Gweggs - use only once, balance lost if not spent in one transaction

    20 meal - use only once, must be equal to or greater than voucher value

    10 dining out - no change, balance stays on card for next time

    HouseofF - no change, balance stays on card for 24 months after last use

    PCW/Curry - assume same as HouseofF as I don’t have one to check

    I think that covers them all. Please let me know if any errors.

    Good morning all, rained overnight but dry at the moment

    Congratulations hampydoodums, exciting times

    Sorry your op was cancelled Di, but quite honestly would not want to be in hospital at the moment, heard of a few winter vomiting bugs being round and the flu is meant to be raising it's ugly head! Maybe it is fate keeping you away from something even more horrible. Fingers crossed it gets rearranged quickly.

    Good morning beautiful people
    Advice please
    If taking an item back for refund. Is it best before or after apg claimed ? Tia it was an unwanted gift tia
    Originally posted by mrs lds
    Most stores will mark your receipt after a return.

    If a member of staff is involved in processing the apg some will mark the receipt.

    If your apg is below 20 then you can process on SS in most cases without staff involvement, and your receipt will be unmarked for a return.

    Personally, I would probably process the apg then a return.

    In either case, a marked receipt would make me feel more conscious of doing the other.
