    Morning peeps.
    Best wishes to Di for today's op.

    Hoping for a nsd today!
    Glad the snows gone here, hope it's the end of winter. My gardens taken a battering, I've lost my bird table which is beyond repair, most of my daffodils look like they've been trampled on but worse of all there's a crack in the panel of my upvc front door!

    Has everyone else had the Sky TV letter about the forthcoming price rise?

    I rang them today and we are actually out of contract for our sky TV boxed sets package (the sky fibre and line contract is due in May) We have 50% off now so by July we will be paying 38 a month

    Just wondering about a plan of attack - I have put a message up on the TV/Sky forum as there are bound to be experts over there.

    We have a standard HD set, no sports, films or kids TV, no multiroom - only watch sky one and some documentaries

    Ah, just popped a brand new sim into my "text phone and put number and code into my real phone, worked a treat

    I read on one thread that you also need droid version 5 or higher for the app to work. My phone is 5.1.1 thanfully, gonna disable auto updates so it doesn't need higher version than I have

    Good afternoon....I can confirm the WB is still comparing nicely.....

    Popped into B & Q for a nose and probably due to the cold weather.....There are a lot of plants reduced half price...All in good condition....Primulas, Sweet William, Fritillary, Dellphiniums and lots more...Might be local to me but worth a nose if you are around a BnQ....

    I've looked at diy pvc repair kits but can't see anything in brown/rosewood.
    Door is just out of guarantee, looked on house insurance for my a/d cover but it says not including damage by the weather!
    Other option is replacement panel, which I will look into, don't fancy buying a new door as this one was around 2k.

    Well done on replacing ds's units!

    I'll try again tomorrow - with just 6 bottles though
    EDIT - Thanking VV for helpful advice re M price changes, I shall try again on Thursday, not tomorrow - as Tomorrow never comes, or is it Tomorrow never dies?

  • E.ON Company Representative: Malc
    Switching to E.ON
    Helo Malc - yes I had switched annual figures for monthly figures - what a egit I am . So I rang up and got a very helpful person who cancelled the original and then stayed with me on the phone while I started again and double checked my figures.

    Fingers crossed that I have now not missed out on my cashback

    Allegedly I will save 170 over the course of the year - Scottish Power had one heck of a price jump and we have been with them for 3 years so it was time to jump ship.

    2 questions
    Firstly once I am up and running can I pay additional amounts into my account? And if so can I pay by American Express.

    secondly can I get an account set up even before the switch and before I have account numbers etc?

    thanks in advance!

    Hello mhoc and glad the usage has been explained. Don't worry, this sort of thing is easy to do.

    You can pay additional amounts on to your account at any time. Sorry, but we accept all major credit cards except American Express. Payments can be made online through our website, over the phone to an advisor or by using our automated system.

    It's certainly possible to register online before we start supplying. You will, though, need the account number to do this. We'll be in touch very soon about this. Emails go out very early in the switching window to confirm things like the account number, chosen tariff and payment arrangement. As well as the account number, you'll need your post code and email address to register. Once registered, you'll be able to see how things are going through the 'Track My Switch' tool.

    If you've opted for a Monthly Direct Debit, there's another online tool to give you more control over the arrangement. This the 'Direct Debit Manager.' This can be used to change the monthly payments to better suit different circumstances. If the account is billed up to the latest meter readings, payments can be changed by up to 20 per cent up or down. By up to 5 per cent up or down without readings. Before confirming the new amount, we'll let you know by how much we think the account will be in credit/debit by the annual review if the payments are changed but usage doesn't alter as expected. There's more about this on our website. Might save you the hassle of making extra payments.

    As with all our payment arrangements, we aim for accounts to have as near to a zero balance as possible by the annual reviews. To check things are on track for this, we review arrangements every quarter but will only make changes at the six monthly and annual reviews. At the other times, we'll let you know if we think a change is needed but leave it up to you to do this. At the annual review, any credit balance over a fiver is automatically refunded.

    Sorry to ramble on mhoc but hope this is useful. Let me know if you need any more details as happy to help.

    As the VM price has only just reduced on Morrisons from 7 to 6 it may be that the APG system will not compare against 6 until Thursday - Asda updates Morrisons prices twice a week, not daily like the others and the next update will be on Wednesday.

    You still paid a very good net price!
