    Marks sparks - has everyone checked their accounts for new offers.
    None of my cards had anything to write home about, usual 20% off various foods.
    Except for my own Sparks card - the main card which had 5 off jeans and jeggings.

    I also had two Marks premier club mailing 10 vouchers to use by May 8th so I had a look at the website and I found fit and flare jeans - black or indigo for 15 each so I thought I'd order one of each and just see what they look like. My mailing vouchers were accepted at the checkout but the system removed my 5 off jeans code
    So I used a stray e voucher which was TCB money converted and then I had only 8p to pay
    The reviews for these jeans is very mixed mostly about the bad quality and peculiar sizing so we will have to see what they look like when they come. My favourite pair of marks jeans is getting very long in the tooth now and the leg hems are getting frayed so they will need replacing eventually ...

    And I still have to go instore to use my Sparks 5 jeans offer....

    It's Grand National Day Tomorrow. We have done it in the past, so against my better judgement, as I am carp at organising things, we should try to raise some money for good causes. Usual rules apply. Pick a number, copy the list (highlight, then press Ctrl 'C'), then paste it into a new post (press Ctrl 'V') and I will do my best to keep up with the chaos. I will request someone as my trusty person who will keep a copy list to the horses/corresponding numbers to make sure I don't cheat. The winner gets to choose the cause and we all pay our 2 to that cause. I hope im not breaking any forum rules, as all charity links/donation links will be put onto the relevant forum section. As ever there's no obligation to take part at all, and if it all goes breastage up, blame Bubbs Oh, and if you pick a non runner/donkey/3 legged albatross, tough!

    For those that do the bank switching, on hukd...
    185 M&S gift card. Once you!!!8217;ve switched using the Current Account Switch Service, including two active Direct Debits, we'll send you a 125 M&S gift card. But that's not all. Once you have your M&S gift card, we'll top it up with 5 each calendar month as long as a minimum of 1,000 is paid into your current account and two Direct Debits remain active !!!8211; for a period of 12 months following the switch. So you could enjoy spending up to 185 in M&S
