    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?

    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.

    Well, I have heard back from TalkMobile about my NUC for my phone, and they have escalated the issue to a higher level. Why could they not reply like that in the first place! Will have to wait and see if they come back with anything useful. If not I will buy one off Ebay.

    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?
    Originally posted by braveheart60uk
    Not quite the same as I've only got contents (house is rented) - 46 through endsleigh and cashback through TCB was 35, leaving me with 11 to pay for 20K cover

    So glad to have some NH racing returning after the awful weather - and Im getting excited about Cheltenham next week

    May I ask, please does anyone know if the Barolo compares at all on the APG? I do rather like this

    Thank you
    Originally posted by Jeremiah T Stone
    Sorry, cant help with the initial question, but I too am partial to a nice Barolo, and someone got me a bottle this week from Wait rosey as it is on special (or a good price) there. I dont have a store near me so have not seen it myself, and a pressie so dont know the price, but if you frequent such stores, might be worth a look.
    Also LOVE a nice Amarone, but sadly also rather pricey.
