    Hi folks. In the olden days I used to write an article and leave it until it was update time. Now as you know we try and update all articles as often as possible with special focus on cards, loans, savings, banking and home phones.

    Therefore if you spot a rate change we've missed - or a new product that hasn't gone in yet - please send me or MSE Dan a PM to let us know.

    I don't want to make this a general thing as we'll be swamped - just an open invite to regulars :)[This payment is halved if there are two people over 60 living in the same house. I know - they halved the payment to my wife and gave it to me! Mustn't grumble!]
  • Regarding your suggestion of Primus phone + Plusnet broadband as an option, Plusnet's web blurb states "You'll need a Plusnet or BT landline to get our broadband." and I just had a chat with them where they repeated this. Which all suggests that this might not be a valid option at all.

    There's a thread in the cheapest home phones forum (01-06-2010, 6:14 PM) already questioning this as a dubious proposal by MSE so maybe it should be removed as an option??
  • I've just received 2 of the Star Trek 4gb USB sticks for 4.99 each, they are great but as they are metal they are very heavy!

  • I used the link from the MSE website to access Energy Helpline and found that SSE would be my cheapest supplier with a saving of £127 a year. I am currently an M&S Energy customer and they couldn't match the deal even though they use SSE as a carrier. I went back to Energy Helpline and phoned them and told them which dal I wanted. The guy wanted to sell me another deal with another company. I had already researched them and their customer service reports look awful so I declined. I told the guy again which deal I wanted and he continued to try and 'sell' me the other company again. In the end I told him he wasn't listening to me and I ended the call. I tried again a few minutes later and got a lady this time. Again I told her which deal I wanted and she tried to sell me the other company again. I questioned why she wouldn't give me the SSE deal I was asking for and she told me she couldn't recommend them (even though it came top on the search on their website) I asked why and she just said she couldn't sell that deal and if I wanted it I had to go direct. I explained that she should take a look at their website as they were coming top in my search!! I ended the call again very frustrated. So, to summarise - be careful - the one you want may come out on top on their website search for you - but they can't sell it to you. If you go direct then you do not qualify for the cashback that Energy Helpline are offering!:mad:

    Hi,
    I am a new member so please bear with me if I am posting in the wrong place.

    You suggest in an article in 2003, a Global SIM called 0044, the company is actually ekit.com.

    We have had their Global SIM for 3 or 4 years, and family in the UK call us on it when we are abroad in the campervan, now we are retired.

    Worth noting however that Orange UK have recently changed their policy and calls between an Orange mobile and an 0044 Sim are now charged as calls to a foreign SIM, as the 0044 Sim is actually a Jersey Channel Islands Sim, not a mainland UK one.

    My daughter ran up charges of £250 this year, which is how she found that Orange had changed their policy!!

    She is appealing to the Ombudsman but without much hope of redress.

    Thanks, all !

    [TOPCASHBACK-RIP OFF]Hi,TOPCASHBACK offer Motor Insurance Comparison Services.The problem is they mark up all the quotes by at least 10%.
    The same insurers were much cheaper with other comparison sites (A lot more than the 1 level cashback)
