    What about buying 16 (11+5), would that be better than buying from Tesco?

    ETA by my calculation 3.78 for 16 after APG so better just buying 12 for a straight comparison and paying 2.70 after APG. Complicated maths though, might be wrong!

    The Mrs has high cholesterol and it didn't affect our travel policy when I declared it.

    Did you look in to switching bank accounts? could have been more lucrative than just downgrading your current account, on some you can switch to the same bank and still get a bonus.
    Originally posted by locarr
    I am still getting 5% interest on the downgraded account on balances up to 2500 - for 12 months so thats something at least.

    This is the main joint account so not an account that I would switch anyway

    Like all drugs statins are not for everyone I know of one person who ended up with no renal function because of statins, I admit it's a rare occurrence but as mhoc said everyone should do their own research before taking any medication.

Everyones reactions are different but a couple of people have said they had aching muscles and joints so they needed to try different statins - Its OHs joints that are his main issue

    We were forced to pass a B&M today, nearly broke my heart, we simply didn't have time to go in It is very rare for me to get the chance to go in anything like B&M or Home Bargains.

    APG 4.22, so 3.78 for 16, just under 24p each.

    Cheaper to buy 12 on a straight comparison at 22p each

    Its been an awful few months feel we've been to hell and back..
    GS who was 17 last week...the one who caused all the trouble when we were away last year..deciding he would stay at mine (although he does live with us) and have a party ..
    Anyway his hip hurt, so after a month he went to the gp, after having cream+ exercises to do (which he didn't) he went back again, since then he has been back 2 or 3 times then went for x-ray just before xmas, 2 weeks later MRI scan, the results given on 14th feb- he has a tumour / sarcoma..then refered to Birmingham hospital today...
    Its been 4 weeks of anguish, tension and living in limbo...the stress for us all has been awful and GS has been in total denial-
    Today after another x-ray and CAT scan the consultant said its not cancer but some not right with the bone(cant remember what its called)
    so discharged from Birmingham and awaiting an appointment at the local hospital within 3 months..
    Hes not out of the woods but hes not terminal
    we all now feel absolutely drained, and have been functioning on adrenaline this last few weeks- now to get GS on track again

    I'm a bit late getting round to booking my child on the Haymarket train for the Nectar points.

    Finally got round to doing it tonight but it now says" Loyalty rewards aren't available on this transaction"

    Did it always say that?
