NOW OPEN: the MSE Forum 'Ask An Expert' event. This time we'd like your questions on TRAVEL & HOLIDAY DEALS. Post by Wed and deals expert MSE Oli will answer as many as he can.
Heads up, compers! In order to investigate a technical issue, we've had to move some of the older threads from Game Over into a new category called 'Game Over Archives'. It'll be comps from before 2017, so shouldn't have too much impact on your day-to-day Forum experience. Thanks for your patience!

Do check your Paypal if you've recently entered the Paypal Christmas comp!

    Yay, I got an email, in my name, saying I'd won £50.  No sign of it in my Paypal account tho :( 

    I think it shows up the next time you buy something with PayPal. I bought a couple of things with it yesterday and couldn't for the life of me work out why it was giving me some discounts on my purchases, and then late last night I got an email saying I'd won £25, and it all started to make sense! So I don't think you can just get the money - it has to be used towards another purchase.
    Thank-you. Shame they didn't make this clear in the T&Cs we all read to avidly  :D

    Yes, you have to spend it before a certain date (31/12?)

    Just to add that you don't want to leave it to the last minute to spend it as certain retailers aren't accepting the rewards as payment and you won't find out until you literally go to pay and get declined or in my case the order will go through and then the retailer will get back to you saying there is a problem. I've heard of this happening in a few cases. Also you should be able to see your reward in the app if you go to wallet (bottom right button and then click rewards). My reward also showed on the website if you click wallet and scroll down  under offers on the left had side.
    Good luck for 2023 Comping! Stay Safe Everyone!
