Money Savers Arms


Last ooorders!… We’re sorry but for now, due to resources, we need to close the Money Savers Arms including Discussion Time.

It’s not easy to write this. We love the forum, but we also have a job to do to protect it, our users and MoneySavingExpert, and at the moment, with all our resources focused on Coronavirus information, and all the team at home, we don’t feel we have the resources to do a good enough job.

For four months, we’ve been struggling to cope with the huge volumes of messages we’ve been getting from Forumites – many of whom are in desperate and dire straits with their finances. The team have been working all hours to try and keep on top of it. At first we thought it’d be a short sharp spike, but it isn’t, it’s continuing, so we have had some difficult choices to make about prioritisation.

Unfortunately in, and likely because of, these stressful times, the Forum team have also been receiving an increasing number of complaints about posts made on the Money Savers Arms and Discussion Time. The team have done what they can to try and walk the tightrope of balancing all the various interests, but for now we need to draw a line under this and temporarily close this Board, so we can keep the key, MoneySaving boards – where people are supporting each other through this crisis - running smoothly.

We know this board is important to you, but as the MSE stance has been forbearance throughout this crisis, now we ask that of you. We’re sorry. Of course you can post on other boards, but we’d ask you to stick to the subjects of those boards, and not use them as a surrogate Money Savers Arms or Discussion Time. And as always please be kind and friendly to each other, especially any newbies.

Thanks
MSE Forum Team

have just had deliverd the phantom of the opera swarovski gift set from sky movies, the set consists of a crystal movie camera, a drop heart pendant, a compact mirror, a diary,a jewellery box and some rose bath candles, what i need to know is, as this is of no use to me how much does it might be worth, as i am clueless. The camera is a crystal movie camera and the pendant is described as a drop rose pendant and i clear crystal, it is of little use to me so will probably go on ebay. Any ideas on value would be great, thanks peeps.

    Hello chrisxr2

    If you can find out how many of these sets are being distributed, it will give you an idea of how collectable they will become.

    If there aren't thousands of them, why not put it away for safe keeping for a few years. I once met a guy who buys and sells these items and makes a good living from it.

    Some people will pay an absolute fortune to fill in the missing gaps in their collection of crystal...........so your set may gain in value in the coming years.
