    Talk about going round in circles.

    I have a phone I am trying to unlock, it is locked to Vodafone but I am on TalkMobile.

    I asked TalkMobile for the unlock code, they sent it and it did not work. They referred me to the manufacturer who, very condescendingly, said basically nothing to do with them. I have been on live chat with Vodafone and they said go in store where they can help. Went in store and they could not help, bar saying that I would have to have a PAYG sim with them in the phone for 30 days before they would give me an NUC.

    I have now emailed TalkMobile back to ask them to try again.

    If anyone has a better idea please tell me. I have even asked someone on ebay if the fact it is locked to Vodafone but I am using it on Talk Mobile but I really don't think they understood the question!!

    Then I sat down and typed this out and lost it the first time.

    Please excuse me while I go and bang my head against a brick wall!!

    Thinking about buying a code off Ebay, but need to be sure it would work, think there is a limit to the number of times you can put in an unlock code, in danger of exceeding it Just not sure that Vodafone one will work as have been on TalkMobile so long, they said something about it would not be on their files unless i rejoined, whether that is true or not i do not know.

    Have we remembered free fish? Credit goes to the OP.

    https://www.princes.co.uk/mackerelcouponing

    You can leave the phone number blank and invent an email address and postcode.

    Don't do what I did and put the product for name and an x for post code when printing coupons for family members - looks like they have the same
    unique code, even though different.

    Can't believe those little tins are 1.40 in Tesco

    I have had dry lips aswell, and cracking, the best thing I have used for the last few days is Blistex Moisturiser, it smells a bit like toothpaste, but it sinks right in, put loads on when you go to bed.

    Yes, it's the same return vs M

    I was told this was returning N/A before but it looks like the price collection is now on Monday. The other option is that this is a Scottish thing - with M being picked up in England and Wales but possibly not Scotland. Can shoppers in Scotland confirm the comparison vs M is okay? I think the Villa Maria picking up 7 for M was posted yesterday and the price collection was probably still on last Wednesday when, afaik, the product was 7 in M.

    In M today, I am not seeing much change. However, the SP chips, which should currently be getting 86p for M, may see another increase in the M price soon. This is now the third price increase in M in about a month and I am now seeing 90p in M. Whether it is a price increase of 15p from 75p to 90p or whether it is 6p plus 5p plus 4p, it is still 15p! They seem to have taken the incremental approach of small changes at a time as increasing straight from 75p to 90p may have been seen by more customers as unacceptable - however the end result for purchases made now is the same.

    Otherwise, some men's razors have gone to full price in M, the offer on Lowicz Raspberry Syrup has ended - now 1.17 - I am going to move the product to Avs T until 20/3, and I need to check some Whiskas cat food further as I am now getting full price SELs but online is still saying 3 across all the applicable range. It looks like the RTC on Swizzels Superstars mix sweets tubs is off as they are now 3. However, Surf Tropical 90 wash washing powder is still 7.

    Various lamb cuts are in the process of effectively going up in price from 5/Kg to higher prices and some people may already have only the higher priced stock available to them of some or all of the products they have. Older stock is still 5/Kg, some of which is on its UB date and therefore even cheaper today on store mark-down. I have newer stock at higher prices - Lamb Breast will be going to 6.33/Kg once all 5/Kg stock and stock on its UB is gone; Stuffed Lamb Breast to 6.58/Kg; Lamb Ribs and Lamb Shoulder to 6.33/Kg; and Minty Lamb Ribs 6.58/Kg. The Pork Shoulder (comparable from A) was 2.50/Kg before - I now have new stock at 3.77/Kg. However, the 3/Kg gammon joints are still available and I have new stock now taking one of them to potentially 2nd April expiry date.

    Does anyone remember the nivea lip things we got for free or very cheap. Been using one for the past few days as my lips are cracked and sore and it doesnt seem to be helping. Infact they seem worse
    Wondering if anyone else had, had this problem with them.
