    I am really sorry for any inconvenience and hassle . I went by the description on the Argos website which explicitly said this model does have NFC (I did not mention those that did not mention NFC explicitly - it took ages as there isnt an easy way to search models with this feature!). Has the activated account got the game showing? If yes, at least you have that ready for getting a phone with NFC.

    Yes you should be able to return this to store as it does not have the feature you bought it for which is explicitly mentioned on their site as included in the specification.

    I am really sorry to have misled anyone - the U5 4g did say NFC is on this phone .

    Good afternoon to all, can I politely ask what is the best way to use 3 out of 30spent in sainsbury? I find S quite expensive and I don't normally shop there but I was wondering is there a way to maximise this value? Thank you in advance

    Afternoon peeps.

    Good morning. It's the eat smart baked beans and soups. With each tin you get 300,points.
    The small tins cost 25p, large tins are 32p and the soup is 45p there is also evaporated milk which is 60p.
    You are limited to 20 promotional items I think per day oh and they're from Morries.
    Hth.

    It’s 20 per day ...? I just bought 60 cans in three transactions and the bonus showed on each receipt. I think it must be limited to 20 promo items per transaction (I hope that is the case, given I purchased “a few” ). Large cans at 2p net (32p, 300 points) are good value too . Thank you to the OP.

    I decided to go all in as I will not be able to pop in each day and they won’t necessarily have stock - so I can still rinse and repeat when the vouchers come through.

    I am disappointed in myself though - the next till along had a 5 voucher sticking out of the printer and I didn’t notice until the CS asked the next customer who arrived if it was hers . As she said no (numpty!), he took it and tore it up . I could easily have gone to that till if I had spotted it. Lesson learnt - check the printer (and check when you pay too, in case yours are triggered!!).

Also see if you can activate a new game/account on it before returning it - it may not work, but as some people have got the game to appear again on the same device, there is no harm in trying before returning it as you are factory resetting anyway . The website says the phone comes with 2 free covers too by registering from the link on their website with the phone IMEI ... #justsaying .

    Looking at 3 for 2s in a different Asda this morning, it's bizarre how the stores don't all have the offers marked up.

    Took quite a few pics to check later.

    Noticed the Nivea lip balms on 3 for 2 again, loads of the Simple stuff in this store, whereas the one Saturday only had 4 items with 3 for 2 SELs displayed.

    UNTESTED
    The Nice-n-Easy hair colourants were marked up 3 for 2.
    5.98 in Asda, 4.50 in Sainsbobs, 2 for 9.00 in Tesco and 2 for 9.00 in Morries.

    Should compare at 2.06 each but I still have loads from last time.

    http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/Shopping/FindProducts.aspx?Query=nice%20n%20easy


    UNTESTED
    Be nice if the Morries comparison was picked up on these Simple wipes.

    3 for 2 Simple Regeneration Age Resisting Cleansing Wipes.
    Asda 4.35, Morries 2.00, Tesco 2.66.
    Should work out at 35p each against Morries.
    If Tesco, 94p.

    I used to have this contract and they replaced up to four parts free ...I just acted silly and they replaced some then found they had to send out for more.
    The next day a different guy came with the extra parts but it didnt sort it so I made him tea and told him that I was promised it would work and couldnt pay for any extra parts.
    He agreed to replace the whole circuit board, electrics too for no extra money and was really lovely about it.
    My boiler is absolutely ancient and still going strong nearly five years later, so hope you get yours sorted too x

    Anyone got a link to the other products giving points at Morrisons, very sad to say I can't make use of beans as I and no-one I know likes them. Know condensed milk and custard have been mentioned.

    Still have Heinz5Beans from when there were free vouchers to print some years ago.
    Told myself I would grow to like them, but didn't work, so not going to do it again.

    Snap-ant, not that Im nosey, oh no but I just wondered how the bidding went with the gorgeous Griffin, I would have loved that.

    louj . Hope you got the payment sorted out after that error the shop made

    hampy Many congratulations to your DS and his gf. Youve every right to be so excited, enjoy the visit to Spain next month

    3Dogs. Thank heavens you had that prescription with you, a life saver indeed. Safe drive home today xx

    mrsmac. Well done! Your motto for a while is Not my concern. Difficult when first letting go but youll soon reach the stage of how did I ever have time to go to work

    Saversue. Speedy recovery wished for you. Have you seen a doctor about this chest infection? I do hope so. Ive got one brewing or it could be the onset of pleurisy (again). Another appt booked for tomorrow.

    All done, off for evening meds and a well deserved coffee
