Halifax have low cost dealing roughly once a month. On 18th February, you can but shares online between 12:00 and 14:00 for £3.95 instead of £12.50.
Note that you won't get your M&B vouchers until December. See http://www.mbplc.com/investors/shareholderinformation/faqs/#link_item_5
Like all religions, the Faith of the Invisible Pink Unicorns is based upon both logic and faith. We have faith that they are pink; we logically know that they are invisible because we can't see them.
"All shareholders of Mitchells & Butlers receive ONE shareholder discount voucher booklet, containing 12 vouchers in December of each year, irrespective of their shareholding size."
Are the vouchers any good?
Normally yes, but not with M&B.
Another share that is worth holding for shareholder benefits alone is Carnival Cruises, but you need 100 shares, about £3K at current prices.
