Right, some of you know the drill by now, but if you don't, here it is. While being a writer at MSE means I help other people save money, when it comes to my own cash, I'm usually in a right muddle. But now I'm looking to unmuddle myself and in the process motivate fellow MoneySavingIdiots. Previously I've covered train delays, overseas travel and credit scores. This week: reclaiming cash (kind of).

    Considering a member of staff is using the term "MoneySavingIdiot" on this forum and referring to other members of the forum i'm assuming this is now an acceptable term to call people on here ;) .

    I wonder how long it is until i get banned :rotfl:

    Reading the just eat story it seems to imply the author drank a bit too much, ordered a pizza and then passed out. They have then complained that they didn’t receive the pizza and demanded a refund.

    The chances seem quite high that the author didn’t hear the pizza guy turn up so it seems slightly unfair to demand a refund for something that sounds like it was there own fault!

    This is barely any better than "make thousands from banks by looking at your account balance."
