    Inevitably the 600 bonus nectar points for my foundlings train journey last month has not triggered the points so I messaged via FB with my screenshots, nectar card number, date of birth, journey start point and transaction number and the lovely Courtney has been very helpful.

    Firstly she said I had bonus points put on April 12th but I screenshot my nectar page which showed that those bonus points were for the earlier March train trip and not for the mid march one.

    Now I've booked the next trip - I was waiting for the points on the March one to show so as not to confuse them but they got confused anyway ...

    On COS , for 1 day only, are free Richmond 12 thick low salt/fat sausages. My local doesn't stock them but does have 12 thick ordinary ones. Does anyone know what comes up on the receipt please? Be great if it only says Richmond sausages Thank you.

    I don't know if it has been mentioned on here but Mum and I had 75 points when you buy shampoo in Boots and their cheapest one is 75p making it free. Don't try and use another coupon, eg double points as it didn't work for me, I suspect because it doubles the normal points which are not given when you get bonus points like this. I did both our shops on Saturday.

    Were you looking at the frozen ones? According to msm T have the ordinary frozen ones (both 14's and 24's) at the same price as the 12 low fat, so if they show the same on the receipt you could get 24 free

    The holiday toiletries work out at 40p for the 1.50 v 1.00 ones and the Aussie Shampoo and conditioner worked out at 62p ! Not the best bargain but if you need it anyway for hols it is a saving !

    Annuities
    In 2014 I purchased an annuity with Scottish Widows, I had 70,749.00 from my St Ives pension. As I was no longer working for the company I was given a couple of options , the one I took was a cash sum of 17,687.25. The amount used to purchase annuity was 53,061.75. I receive 214.59 -42.80 tax, net paid 171.79. I feel that I am not getting value for money and could put the lump sum to better use. I was hoping you could give me some advice as I can't see where to start a new thread or maybe you could post this for me. Kind Regards

    Well I'm off to get ready for an evening out with DD3.

    Didn't expect that this morning, thanks to whoever the OP was who originally mentioned SFF to the Elite as I had never heard of them and have had some really good cinema freebies from them and some good shows for next to nothing.

    I'll leave you with a choon
