    Yes, it is right of the key pad. If they have security cameras they will have seen me scanning the ATM all round until my phone beeped . I also did the same at other ATMs too - though in fairness it did say contactless in. Screen so I knew it was there somewhere!

    It is not exactly obvious as no label on my nearest San - I tried scanning the keypad, the card slot ... I was expecting getting a tap on my shoulder from the police for suspicious behaviour .

I didn't want to flag my account with Stdr so hoping the fact this ATM says they cannot read the card won't flag my account anywhere.

    Drumstick squashies 50p online at Morrison’s

    https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/swizzels-drumstick-squashies-50p-online-instore-at-morrisons-2872589

    Also matchmakers mint are 50p online at Morrison’s
    Originally posted by ilovetoshop
    They (and Matchmakers Orange, I don't know about Matchmakers Honeycomb but they possibly are too) are also 50p each in M instore (and have been for over a week). However, best of luck as I mentioned before as Christmas legacy items like this are now bitty in M - they are hit and miss depending on store: it depends on whether the store you visit happens to have them left. For example, McVitie's Victoria Carton is, uselessly, 3 in M but the APG seem clearly to no longer have it in their stores as it has returned N/A. I suspect the Nestle Black Magic box may also not compare on TBG - even if M has it somewhere it's likely to have gone from the collection places. It is on clearance and, although I know TBG should not compare against clearance items, some of these items are not being described as RTC or clearance in M on the SELs anymore - instead, they say Christmas "Reductions" so, if a TBG store or more does have it, the items may well be picked up and compare on TBG and, on this basis, I am including them as potential Tvs M.

    As for the Squashies are they a small pack at 50p? I think I have seen that instore as well but also have bigger box size on reduction elsewhere in M but neither of them any good?

    I don't know how ordering items online from M works - in other words whether the delivery would arrive saying that the Squashies or Matchmakers were OOS and maybe deliver a substitute if that was requested - there are lots of items online on m.com that are not in people's stores, are only in some stores somewhere and then those stores don't have other items that are online so I don't know how online ordering works regarding items that aren't in your store (many people I suspect will already find Squashies and Matchmakers are not in their store - they were there before but have already been put out on RTC, have sold out and the SELs removed, leaving most people I suspect no longer able to find them in their M) - if people order items online that aren't in their M will they receive nothing (or a substitute) or do they come from some central place that has items that aren't available anywhere locally but only at some M fifty miles away?

    It looks like the points offer on the beans is on until 4th February so hopefully it will be 20 tins per day.

    On Arg0s it says PAYG phones have to be bought with a 10 top up, but there doesnt seem to be anything forcing you to when you order for fast track collection?

    Has anyone bought from there and walked away with the phone without a top up?

    The contactless is in that space to the right of the keypad - usually, but not always, marked with the contactless sign.
    Originally posted by pacifica9
    Thanks. So to the right of the keys, if there's no contactless sign is there something else to indicate something's under the plastic?

    I'm beginning to think I won't be able to find a compatible atm, looked in town today and they all looked like my previous photo.

    Could anyone post a pic of a 'right' atm?

    Argh - Muller fail. Despite me arranging groups of 5 different flavour yoghurts it has gone through as 1 x 68p and then 11 @ 68p. If I were lucky the hidden one would be the first one (1x) but it's irrelevant as I ended up then with 7 different items - including some nakd bars.

    Good afternoon everyone

    Having trouble uploading photo but someone in front of me had bought a single size duvet set blue stripe & went through @ 25p
    So I went to have a little look. The double went through @ 90p No King size left so couldn’t check price. Still full price on the sell.

    Similar to current one on the George website b/c ending 387299

    Hope someone else finds them.

    So if I order this phone do I need to order a 10 payg sim as well?

    But the phone does need an O2 sim?

    Does the phone come with an empty sim?

    I have my sim that I use for my o2 app on my normal phone, could I use this? Or woud it confuse my normal iphone?

    I have a spare visa - could it be a debit card or a credit card?

    why are people buying the more expensive phone from argos rather than the cheap O2 phone ??!!

    thanks in advance for any clues

    Afternoon all - feeling rough which a shame really cost it looks nice outside yeah I know it will be cold but it's the sort of day I could up my step count. Got like funny sensation in my left ear - it's a bit like white noise. Think it must be the leftover cartaah from the headcold I have. At least the headache has subsided.

    Not a brilliant start but hopefully I will have the energy to pop to Ms for beans and soup.

    AJ don't be naughty and take it easy. Di sorry yr op has been delayed but it's sounds as though it mightsuits you better. However have to agree with Blacklist - money tight at this time of year. I had to wait until a pension was paid into my account before I could make a contribution. Glad I don't have to wait until end of the month like most others.

    Bubbs I know you have to move out every year but don't understand why. Gosh it must be a real pain just after Xmas too.

    Enjoy the rest of your Sunday folks. xx

    It does not have NFC so will not work for going out shopping to be able to play, but can be used to activate a new account to then add to an existing phone with NFC. To reiterate, if you do not already have an NFC enabled phone to use Droid Pay at the checkout, don’t buy this one as you will still not be able to play.

    You don’t need a SIM to activate Droid Pay on it, you just need a WiFi connection.
