    Just thought I'd pass this on.
    If you get a Love2Shop gift card make sure you activate it before trying to use it. Otherwise you may be embarrased and the young man on the till won't know what to do with it as it keeps getting declined when you've said there's £10 on it

    Obviously this didn't happen to me

    Yes it tells you how to do it on the card, although I didnít notice it until the post appeared on here.

    The Love2Shop gift card comes attached to another slightly larger card that has details of the shops where you can spend it.
    It also says "The card below needs activating before use". Register now at www.love2shop.co.uk

    Haven't had any other gift cards so can't comment on those.

    After being rested for 6 months I received an email from them inviting me back on the live panel late last night. First posting pack to be sent on25 November. However I have emailed them and thanked them for considering me but I asked them if they could try and give me a full 6 month slot rather than taking over from someone who has dropped out after a few months.

    I had this happen to me last time and they were very good and in the end I was on the live panel for 9 months. However after that time i was suffering from posting fatigue and was looking forward to the break. Now raring to get going again.

    I have just received my first training pack after a 6 month rest, should it contain a set of incentive stamps? I thought I got a set before but nothing so far this time.

You will not however get any more stamps until you start on the full survey - when you should get one book of 1st class, one book of large letter stamps and a presentation pack of stamps

    It seems that they have changed the system, this was the reply I got from them:-

    "We have had a small process change for our training process. This means you will get your stamps when you have completed the training phase."

    need an answer
    They must have only recently changed the process,I went back onto training 4 weeks ago and got stamps but after 2 weeks ive been rested until a space becomes available....

    Ive been with the panel for many years and I've decided that this stint might be my last...I keep getting back to training but never seem to complete it within a reasonable timeframe...I've been in this limbo for 4 months now.

    I wonder if they have had issues with people just taking the free stamps and then not posting the training items? Or they may be trying to save stamps as we normally get our 2 books for training and then 2 books plus presentation pack when starting the full survey - wonder if the stamps given on starting the full survey will still be the same or not?
