    Morning Elite

    Was the lip balm and butter tested, I don't think I've seen anything about it since Izzey posted but might have missed something. Will check lunchtime if it hasn't. TIA

    I'm currently struggling massively with early pregnancy hormones. Today is the second day I've had to shut myself in the loos at work because I can't stop crying over the most smallest thing ever. I was not like this with my first at all. My stomach has ballooned too. How am I going to keep this secret for another few weeks?!

    It might be sensible to have a plan in place in case anyone realises and blabs - I know if I know a female I can spot that they are pregnant pretty early, I knew my SiL was pregnant before she did, I just hope there is no-one like that at your work!

    Free 2 months NowTV Cinema - new or existing customers who have not had a code through the mobile game Snatch.

    https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/2-month-free-trial-of-sky-cinema-pass-now-tv-new-existing-customers-via-snatch-2874774

    Download the game/sign up, play the game and grab the first parcel, it opens to reveal a code, follow link to NowTV and claim the 2 month trial.

    I suppose if it has a code you could potentislly get the 14 day free trial first if you were a new customer, as you would then be an existing customer . Go through Q for NowTV for potentially 12 cashback ...

    I recommended this game a while ago and put details on the referral board, as if referred it gives you free virtual coins to start with.

    I have had various NowTV passes and other voucher through the game - there are cash and other prizes too.

    Missed it, I see Anon has quoted so I will have a look. I am thinking of getting into this industrially with o2 pixi 4s used to register cards and the CEX'd I reckon I could do up to 10 cards a day which is an awful lot of 10p haribos as the cash machine approach seems too dodgy and I haven't figured the T/S no purchase work around.

    Afternoon

    Found some M&S bargains that were not showing on the sale links even though in the sale. Mostly makeup sets and makeup/washbags from 1.99 upwards...

    EDIT:

    Try this link as original did not work, change items low to high price.

    https://www.marksandspencer.com/l/beauty/makeup


    More on this link again change to low to high price.

    https://www.marksandspencer.com/l/beauty/gifting


    Hope links works you should be able to scroll through from low to high price.

    I was thinking of looking into one before to get through credit card/current account conditional spend offers, for example only this morning BA tried to persuade me to get an avios amex 30k miles for 3k spend in 3 months and then a free companion ticket for 10k spend in a year so if I could just pay myself using a card for say 1% it might work out worth it.

    Not getting ahead though, I think we need to figure a good way of using the M&S droid vouchers as DW failed again this morning, we think because it was a sale item with more than 30% off but then how does one do 30+ good value transactions at M&S for 3/5 quid each?

    Yes, this is what I was thinking about. I thought just having no money in the account would do it (it has for me in the past on a different card), but past two days it's just authorised multiple transactions on AP even though there's only a few pence in my bank.
    What about doing 1p transactions with the reader.. would that work? 1.7% of 1p?
    Your pm is full too.

    I though so too I ordered a couple of those.

    Also ordered a new hanging washbag for me 3.99. Shame only the stripe one left would have loved the vintage bird.
