Money Savers Arms


Last ooorders!… We’re sorry but for now, due to resources, we need to close the Money Savers Arms including Discussion Time.

It’s not easy to write this. We love the forum, but we also have a job to do to protect it, our users and MoneySavingExpert, and at the moment, with all our resources focused on Coronavirus information, and all the team at home, we don’t feel we have the resources to do a good enough job.

For four months, we’ve been struggling to cope with the huge volumes of messages we’ve been getting from Forumites – many of whom are in desperate and dire straits with their finances. The team have been working all hours to try and keep on top of it. At first we thought it’d be a short sharp spike, but it isn’t, it’s continuing, so we have had some difficult choices to make about prioritisation.

Unfortunately in, and likely because of, these stressful times, the Forum team have also been receiving an increasing number of complaints about posts made on the Money Savers Arms and Discussion Time. The team have done what they can to try and walk the tightrope of balancing all the various interests, but for now we need to draw a line under this and temporarily close this Board, so we can keep the key, MoneySaving boards – where people are supporting each other through this crisis - running smoothly.

We know this board is important to you, but as the MSE stance has been forbearance throughout this crisis, now we ask that of you. We’re sorry. Of course you can post on other boards, but we’d ask you to stick to the subjects of those boards, and not use them as a surrogate Money Savers Arms or Discussion Time. And as always please be kind and friendly to each other, especially any newbies.

Thanks
MSE Forum Team

    It doesn't always want postage extra.

    I bought that book, with free postage. And the other day I bought something that was 18.99 and it came with free postage.

    It depends.......some things are special offers I suppose.

    I know, but it always seems that what I want has post extra.
    And TBH, I'm getting so I can't be bothered to look, because I reel that it's a sort of rigmarole.
    I don't actually mind paying post, it's just that stuff looks cheaper without the post, and it sort of lures you in.
    Meh!

    Trying to compare prices on loo rolls. They can be 2 ply or 3 ply, quilted or not. Forest-friendly, recycled, pink, scented, moist.. the size of each sheet isn't the same for every roll. The length of the roll isn't always the same. The number of sheets on a roll isn't the same. It's very annoying.

    The one that gets me with dog owners, is that they have those retracting leads. Now I can see that when they're in a wide open space, that it's very handy to have little wuffles on a longer lead than normal. Fair enough.
    But when they're walking on the road, and have about 400 yards of line out, does it occur to them that wuffles has the freedom to roam anywhere in that 400 yard radius circle. In the road, across the road, under the artic approaching at 50mph. . .
    I've been waiting for it to happen to me for years.
    I had it happen to me a bit back. Fortunately a miss.
    There is dash cam footage of a very close call on YouTube somewhere (Not my footage though).
    Before someone accuses me of being a dog hater, I like dogs.
    But dog owners are humans, and I only like some of them. :D

    Phoning an organisation and you get disconnected for these reasons
    . When you have not selected an option as you forgotten what 1 goes to or unsure which one to select
    . When the queue is full. Sometimes just trying a couple of minutes later and you are able to queue. It's the ones you try several times. No idea when is the best time to phone them
    . The ones you speak to an automated voice. "What are you calling about?" Then slowly saying "I want to pay". They don't understand what you are saying then hang up. Couldn't remember which company that was for now. Normally, they connect you to a human.
