    Sorry, what are you referring to buying from where, as whatever you are quoting is missing (for me anyway!).

    Many thanks

    I felt it was time for another C0 -op till spit MOC so I went home today via the co-op and I found Granny Smiths apples - 4 pack reduced to 75p - 68p after using the NUS and blue Co-op card.

    Out came a till spit for 50p off water and soft drinks so I found a 2 litre bottle of low sugar cloudy lemonade for 65p - 59p after NUS/blue card and then 9p after using the 50p MOC


    Thanks

    55p of yesterday's spend was on rtc parsnips and carrots at a Co op (it's next door to a charity shop where I'd just donated a load, one of the few locally with parking outside.)

    For the day-to-day, I quite like Co op. In yesterday's store, they actively promote their rtcs, pricing them low from early on, and the till ladies will ask you if you've seen the 10p tomatoes etc.

    Co-op also have a free monthly magazine at the till, lots of reading and recipes etc

    Also 2 MOCs valid until early February - one for 1 for an Innocent juice - hideously expensive unless you find it in clearance.

    The other was for Flora diary free 50p off - quite a few supermarkets have this on offer for 1 but I don't imagine the C0-op will

    Just order with a Classic PAYG sim and it will go through checkout without having to pay a 10 top up.

    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, dont buy this one as you will still not be able to play.

    You dont need a SIM to activate Droid Pay on it, you just need a WiFi connection.

    My suspicious behaviour at Bclys till today netted me a coke, 3 M&S, 3 X 3 Gregg's, 2 x 10 Dine out and a 20 meal voucher (over 2 phones). I decided to use this rather than the STDr as one of my cards is Stdr and their ATM message asks me to use card whereas Bclys says cannot read card. 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.

    Apart from that, I can think of lots of examples where a newcomer has started a post with Im a long time lurker, but I might have just found something.........

    Exactly, if you already have an NFC phone you can get this, activate a new account on the new phone, add it into the NFC phone then trade in/sell the new phone .

    Is it just a case of adding the 'new' email address I used onto the NFC phone and signing in?

    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?
    Originally posted by fuzzgun19
    No unfortunately there is nothing - looks like your pic. Just hold phone to ATM in this area and wait to see if it beeps.

    You will need a data connection/WiFi when using the app for the envelopes to open though.

    Your picture looked identical to the ATam I was just at - nothing to the right of the keypad to indicate that was where the contactless was, but on screen there was a message about contactless so I knew I was in the right place . If it works, a message comes up on the ATM screen about inserting your card (and your phone Droid envelope animation starts - plus a beep!).

    They even have free WiFi at San so connect to that to save your data/recent issues opening the envelopes .

    It is a shame we didn’t fully understand it early on and how to activate additional accounts, as we could otherwise have potentially won even more . The HeSBC version would particularly have been great to play for longer.

    Check your emails for one from Flora Pro-active which includes a 1 MOC - not downloaded mine so I don't know what size, variety or type of MOC it is or its expiry date as yet.
