    Sorry everyone, not took much notice of the offer on the wine.

    Can someone help, a friend is having a party and doing her own wine and prosecco, and has now asked for my help, as I told her there is an offer on.

    What do I need to do??

    If anyone still hasn't got their cashback items yet for TCB groceries today is the final day.

    I got
    twin packs of ginsters Cornish pasties for 1 - 5op cashback
    wonky potatoes 1 with 50p cashback

    The Heinz tom ketchup 460g is also 1.50 in Morrison with 1 cashback

    that's a cheap dinner sorted out

    Edinburgh to Haymarket rings a bell.

    And don't forget to mark it on the calendar for the week you need to take to nectar on FB to chase your points up

    I only had a 500 points offer on my card, not on OHs account but I thought that 500 points for a 1.20 spend is still good enough.

    On our accounts there are a lot of offers expiring or expired yesterday so I will have another look to see if anything new has popped up

    Oh No! Assume they have fixed the pipes if you now have water. Would insurance cover the damage to the washing machine?



    Reassure me that either the bucket and pipe end are outside or your have a carbon monoxide alarm. There is a small risk of CO coming through the condensate pipe.
    Originally posted by silvercar
    The pressure is lower, but lots of people still have burst pipes in there vans/lodges. No not covered on insurance, we have bought a new one now, luckily we can afford to go and but one, not everyone is so lucky Seen alot of washers on peoples drives
    Lots of people have problems with there boilers too

    Bless you mrsmac

    When my cancer spread to my spine last year, I received a Blue Badge. But the looks I got from some people when parking in disabled bays at supermarkets

    The last time I used it was months ago when I was with my wife and daughter - and a man walking behind us shouted to me it must really hurt

    Im a proud person, and I will do my utmost to hide my pain - especially in front of my teenage DD, she silently worries enough about me.

    Perhaps an opportune time to kindly ask/remind people not to be so judgemental on appearances/hidden disabilities.

    So today I was meant too of been going to Cheshire Oaks as annual birthday treat from Other Sister
    But overnight developed the foot of extreme pain

    Had to take co codomal to be able to sleep - I can't put any weight on it.
    So I now have been triaged at Drs & have an appt at 10.50am.
    Other Sister coming down to take me
    But, I have to tackle the stairs & walk to the car park first

    Fourp has found a crutch & I have my thumb stick too



    Plus I'm seeing a Dr who judges me by my weight rather than my symptoms ...

    Right I need to find a sandal I can put on

    It was so lovely to sleep in my own bed nest to dh I didn't think that would ever happen again.
    Lots of visitors today including my favourite two girls dd and dgd. Dd has washed and dried my hair and I'm just about to have my nails done.
    Today is a good day.
    Got a hospital appointment next tuesday so hoping the wine is still working whilst I'll have a lift.

    Totally agree. Mine is for mobility impairment, sore but not life threatening like you.

    It is difficult not to judge when a youngster jumps out of a car, races to the trollies or cash point. It makes me annoyed that they have so little respect for other people

    Take care on your journey and it must be difficult with youngsters to consider

    TBH I have learned a lot from being a member of the Elite. Yes saving money, getting better deals on services, holidays etc but also about life that does not directly me. It often makes me humble. Will leave it at that before I upset myself with others positivity .

    Got my Home & contents renewal email from Aviva today. Last year was 98 less 50 CB, so a net 48.. Renewal this year 148

    Cover for house and 20000 contents, no accidental cover 400 excess on both.

    Today after scraping quotes and sifting through cashbacks, then seeing quotes different from comparisons I settled on.....
    SAGA (Yes I am an old git) Same cover except excess only 350. CB is 70, but if I include legal cover at 24 extra I would get 101 CB, so get paid 7 to take Legal cover.
    None of the additional charges such as accidental cover, emergency stuff etc.

    SO drum roll....... quote was 124, so bought it, cashback (hopefully) 101, so a net 23 for the year, my BEST ever!!!


    How the heck do peeps stay with their existing provider, mine gave an increase of 51% totally shocking, especially with no claims and no change in circumstances.


    Anyone managed less so far this year?

    Did we all know that rewards (free cake) are now on the John Lewis app so you don't have to faff with paper vouchers?
    Originally posted by Picasso7
    Thank you for that, Ive not had any rewards or treats from JL since they started apart from vouchers for tea & cake once. I didnt know they were still giving them. Ive downloaded the app & no treats showing so I phoned them. Apparently theyre having trouble with the app. Theyre changing the treats to tailor them to the individual, whatever thats going to mean. Probably wont be as good as what it was, a bit like the removal of Ws pick your own. Theyve looked into my account & apparently I opted out, I dont remember that. Anyway theyre going to send me some vouchers in the post. Itll be interesting to see what everyone gets in future.
