    Meant to mention yesterday, my birthday gift was still showing on my Sparks card, in spite of the fact I had used the voucher they sent me, so I grabbed a 6 box of chocs, handed it over to the SA and said i wasn't sure if the gift code had been used or not as my OH had had my card for a while, and it went through as free.

    My son insisted on calling helicopters "helicopiters", and cauliflower was hollyhock!

    When my DD was about 2 or 3 she was just out of the bath, all snug for bed, and we asked her what she was doing. She replied by spoonerising "sucking my fumb" with her thumb still in her mouth. She could not understand by we were laughing so much

    I've been a member forever. it costs 10 a month as I don't have the travel insurance bit. it more than pays for itself though

    https://bank.marksandspencer.com/existing-customer-information/premium-club/

    As for Sparks - you have the app on your phone and you check it on a Thursday for new offers? You can also see your account online and your offers - also worth checking that your details are complete and correct - mine hadn't got my mobile number.
    If its yes to all of the above I would message them to ask why you are not getting any birthday treats - my email came about a week before
