    I'd be glad of advice too please. I thought we didn't need a trigger as long as we got 11 of one sort and 1 of another? And is this v S please?

    thank you.

    just to edit.... a quick search shows that this one is the same barcode as the xmas one so could also be used as an invisible trigger.

    For those looking for a new Droid phone, this may be the best deal at the moment (please post if a better deal found):

    Sim Free Alcatel U5 4G Mobile Phone - Black / Grey
    http://www.argos.co.uk/product/7348105

    Argos have this at 64.99 on offer. Note this specific U5 4g, the cheaper/other version does not have NFC, this one mentions it in the spec on Argos site.

    If you go through VC today they are offering 10 Argos voucher back on a 50 spend. This makes it effectively 54.99.

    Not as good as the A3 deal in November/December but I cannot see better at the moment?

    Note this is not a recommendation, I have no knowledge of the phone I was just seeing what the cheapest nfc phone was I could find.

    Wow thats great news.
    I know how you are feeling as my DSis has been trying for a baby for the last few years and unfortunately had 6 miscarriages. She had numerous tests and they couldnt find anything wrong. She is now 6 months pregnant and all going well so far. I have been passing on the baby bargains posted on here and the other sites. So exciting

    Morning all

    If anyone is buying 11+1 mullers and looking for fillers v Sains, it's not easy! However, I found that Nakd bars in 3 flavours: - lemon drizzle, peanut delight and cocoa coconut work out free after APG if you buy all 3 and claim 60% back on on shopmium. If you're not already using the shopmium app you would get something else free as well if you join via a referral link. If you can be bothered searching mine is on the referrers board - Link - but you will likely find other familiar names on there as well. I joined 22-4-16 and I have had loads of free stuff, I really can recommend it.

    I had a quick look at this - potentially Alcatel Pixi 4 direct from O2 website with Classic PAYG sim - 19.99, no top up required on the SIM at the buying stage, but you could do the Amazon 5/10 top up offer if the right SIM pack comes through with the phone. The phone is 19.99 but then trade in seems to be higher at CEX or eBay. Refurbished are 9.99 but out of stock .

    2% Cashback on Q/TCB unless anyone can spot a better option?

    S and others may have clearance phones too? The key is Android 4.4 Kitkat or higher operating system for Android Pay to work.

    If you are ordering the 02 free SIM remember to go through Q for 10 Cashback if you top up. You seem to have a 1 in 3 chance of getting either a 10 or 5 Am4zon gift card offer on the pack (with 10 top up) or free Doro Primo (with a 15 top up). You can only claim the offer on your specific pack (I tried claiming 10 Am4zon with 5 offer pack and no joy).

    S have a few phones on clearance but so didnt notice the prices due to them not having NFC. With additional accounts it could be an opportunity .

    if any friends of mine over 50 want to join they would as well as me receive a 100 gift card

    I want to use my droid HoF to buy a sweater. There is no store nearby so I would need to order. Ideally I would order 2 sweaters in different sizes and return the one that didn't fit. This would cost 50 of which 20 is the droid voucher. If I then return one 25 sweater do you think they would refund the 25 to my payment card or do you think they would refund 5 to the card and 20 to a gift card? Thanks
