    FX leisure let you sign up on a month-to-month basis I haven't been a member for a while but it was £30 a month when I last was. Very nice gym I'd deffo go back if I had the time or money!
    there aren't many though
    Locations are: Lowton (Warrington), Orrell (Wigan), Stalybridge(Manchester/cheshire), Poulton-le-Fylde(nr blackpool) and Gateshead (Newcastle)
    Clicky
    The very best is sometimes what nature gives us for free.

    Anyone who was interested in the SKY pay once watch forever deal (currently about £75 I believe), the BBc are rumoured to be releasing a very similar offer, although there is never a contract on offer, so all channels are free forever after a one off payment.

    How does one go about purchasing this?

    Thank you
  • Hi there,

    (Hope this post is ok as it's my first...)

    If you're between 16 and 24 yrs old, check out Blyk, it's a new, free mobile network (there is article about it on the main site somewhere). You get a free non-contract sim with 217 free txts and 43 free mins to any UK network, and every month Blyk refills the balance! Unlike most pay and go sims, top-up is not required, ever! Its paid for by advertisers such as Miss Selfridge, McDonalds, JJB's, Boots, Loreal etc, so you receive brand messages from those companies. Ive got one and I only get a couple of brand messages a day and credit every month.

    The web-site is blyk.co.uk

    There are quite a lot of internet providers offering "no contract" broadband. These are just a few examples, not a complete list. I'm assuming "no contract" to mean 1 month contract and/or 1 month notice.


    PlusNet
    1 month contract for all plans on this page
    http://www.plus.net/residential/broadband/?resindex=tab_broadband

    * connection is £40 unless you're transferring from another ISP and does not include a router/modem


    IDnet
    1 month minimum for the plan on this page:
    http://www.idnet.net/solutions/homepayg.jsp
    (includes 1Gb download allowance)

    * connection is £47 unless you're transferring from another ISP and does not include a router/modem


    Names.co.uk
    30 days minimum for all plans on this page:
    http://www.names.co.uk/adsl.html
    (all include 1Gb download allowance)

    * you pay £70.50 if you terminate within 12 months to cover setup costs but get a free router and free setup on most tariffs


    NewNet
    1 month minimum for all plans on this page but you need to add £1 per month to the price you see as the monthly rate they display is based on paying annually :confused: :
    http://www.newnet.co.uk/broadband/home.php

    * connection appears to be £39.99 unless you're transferring from another ISP and does not include a router/modem


    Prodigy
    1 month minimum for all plans on this page but watch for £39.99 disconnection charge unless transferring out to a new provider
    http://www.prodigynet.co.uk/menu.php?page=adsl&home=true

    * connection is £39.99 unless transferring from another ISP and does not include a router/modem


    Close but no cigar:
    3 month notice - https://www.bethere.co.uk/broadbandcomparision.do
    3 month contract - http://www.freedom2surf.net/adsl/homeuser.php


    Sorry if there are any mistakes!

    Mobilez :)

    In addition to the 30 day broadband contracts listed above by Mobilez I can recommend Zen broadband, which is another 30 day contract.
    The one off connection charge of £47.00 is quite high, (free for migration from another provider) but Zen have consistently been the best broadband provider for customer service and an always on connection from Which? and PC pro magazine. I have been with them for 15 months now and have had absolutely no problems whatsoever. Thumbs up!!

    First Post Combo Breaker First Anniversary
    I share a house with two others and we each have a separate tenancy agreement. Does anyone know of any contents insurance providers that will insure just my belongings in my room? I think Endsleigh do, but last time I looked most providers wouldn't quote for 'my circumstances'.

    purplestar - as far as i know endsleigh are the only insurance company. I looked around at last renewal and this seemed to be the case. Lloyds TSB told me they did but then gave me a number to ring and the number was for Endsleigh! I think there is a thread on this board somewhere, if you find another company please PM me!
    Indecision is the key to flexibility :)

    That's useful, but be warned, they do a credit-check in real-time, whilst you're signing-up. It would be nice if they had pointed this out in advance, as 16 year olds aren't always registered on the Electoral Roll, and if it's not a contract, why credit-check?? Also, doesn't any credit-check at the same address show up on your record? Would be nice if they gave people the chance to know what was happening.
    Still, maybe I shouldn't have been signing up under a false name, but I hate junk mail, spam and my real information being on unnecessary databases. I would still have read the relevant adverts, so their revenue stream is protected, so why they don't allow me one, I don't know...
    Maybe they want to sell details as well (I think they're good on this, but with false details I didn't have to read the small print too carefully).
