    Afternoon all - gosh what a horrible day out there. Popped to Ms for a bean run. Plenty of stock carefully divided my shopping in two expecting a voucher to pop out to pay for my other bits and pieces got nowt.

    It's receipt show points and previous balance so I am assuming that it's updated overnight - can anyone confirm please.

    Oh Rose that is sad news about the cat. No easy way to tell the little one either. Huge hug.

    Well 3 dogs that's a result bringing your op forward in current climate. Hope it goes well for you.

    That description on argoss said NFC. I almost bought it. Think I might just hold out and hope that they run the promo on Apple Pay soon!

    Unless anyone knows of a decent android tablet it would work on? I don't have a tablet so might invest in one as our home is going "smart" with one thing and another.

    Thanks

    You only get 11 in the box.

    I've had them before and I thought there were more than that...

    This phone has NFC, not sure if any cheaper deals around.
    http://www.argos.co.uk/product/7362332



    If you want a second month and already have an NFC phone, the O2 one above is good, then just transfer the account made on it to your NFC phone.

    Factory reset it and sell to Cex for 21 cash

    I went back to this Sant atm today, and found the 'spot' (marked on photo).
    I tried lots of other atm's including Barclays, but there was nothing.

    Wish I could find one that didn't mean going to town - I need a secluded out of town atm lol



    My 1st day of second month today. Opened all envelopes at home and got a 5 & a 3 gwegg

    I couldn't open there as no wifi.

    Someone said it was hard to find good items vs Sains. This is good at the moment, with the Ketchup crisps:

    1x Walkers Baked Mature Cheddar Crispy Crackers (5x25g) 1.79 1.00

    Presumably Italian Herb version also works against S as the third item but my shop was vs T where it is Mature Cheddar and Salt & Vinegar (Salt & Vinegar N/A against S). Alternatively Walkers Baked Crisps could go vs S but not as good due to A's lower individual prices.
    M lists - page 18 (on 40 posts per page setting) - Avs M: post 705 onwards; Tvs M and "Buy in M": post 709 onwards.

    3Dogs' lists - page 6, posts 210-214.
