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

I buy the Mail on a Saturday because it has a good TV guide for the week, but I don't like the paper much. Any suggestions for an alternative?

    yeh but some are crap though, like dont tell you much info on certain channels etc
  • We used to get the Telegraph on a Sat though only for the paper. I'd get the Radio Times if it was available as a Tesco Clubcard deal. Sadly it isn't, maybe we should write in - I did but they gave the usual suck-up response.

    Not stupid at all....:confused: you can miss a heck of a lot of good programmes on Sky if you don't have a comprehensive guide. I nearly missed a series on Sky that was really useful to my work. I only caught it by channel hopping one night.

    I have to say we bought some papers a few Saturdays ago and you are right the Mail was the most comprehensive. Whether you would be better with a satellite guide that gives a more comprehensive guide to channels, I am not sure.

    Ask at a good newsagent who has a guide book. We have a nice little independent news agent down the road and nothing is too much trouble for him to look up.

    Good luck!

    No such thing as a stupid question on MSE.;)

    I used to buy the Mail on Saturday just for the TV guide but now use the guide on the Freeview box, kills less trees and it's free.;)

    Personal preference always comes into this and what is best for one doesn't suit another hence the Sun, Mail, Times etc. There are some comprehensive TV guides available for 40/50p. Why not go and browse the shelves in Tesco/Smiths and choose the one you prefer. The mail does it for me but I don't have satellite/freeview.
