    Good Morning

    Monday my recording box started being silly and not working proper

    I tried fixing it factory settings etc then thought could be tv not box same problem

    Struggled til Wednesday googling and not finding answer so ask next door.

    He tells me how to check if its box or tv

    Its box so I get old farty recording box out and he ho its works but so annoying slow and unreliable.

    Get intouch with Amazon about broken box and guarantee didn't run out til next month

    They would have sent me new one but none in stock so refunded me full amount and told me send it back

    Refund in gift cards and rest in bank this morning . So I have ordered a new Humax box the updated version of one sent back being delivered tomorrow before 1pm

    Morning all. Thank you Chris. That makes me feel much happier. I was quite disconcerted yesterday!

    I have caught up now. Thanks Pepper and Dora too. (I, too, have read your name as Pandora Skids and it took a while looking at the OP!!!8217;s comments before I clocked what it really is!!)

    You can make space for cheese. If you insist on refrigerating it just bung a few freezer blocks in the freezer, use your cool box/bag (surely all Elite have these for emergencies?) as a fridge by rotating those through cool box/freezer, keeps the cheese as cool as the fridge.

    Have to say, it is lovely cheese

    On CoS it generally shows you the offer if you can claim it - it disappears/knocks off how many you claimed once claimed, so quite straightforward to keep track (once it has processed - so I claimed Tetley at the weekend, it is showing Rewarded under Receipt Activity and is showing as available again). CS isn't as clear and you have to login to the website (not app) where it says you have X redemptions remaining - they also tend to extend offers (even if it disappeared then came back!), whereas CoS offers seem to disappear then appear as a new offer.

    Just to add, sometimes on CoS when the offer reappears, it only reappears for those who did not claim last time it was on (I noticed this when some people can see offers and I can't or vice versa - like the Total yoghurt is not showing for me).

    It is basically a GC for 2.45 to spend today only.
    20p off for using travel mug.
    What Costa sizes mean:
    http://www.plainenglish.co.uk/news/947-our-coffee-cup-overflows-with-jargon.htl


    Possible prices:
    https://uk.menuwithprice.com/costa-coffee-menu/


    So for hot drinks using own mug you get 2.65 value against what you buy.


    If you want anything else but more expensive, pay the difference.


    And no harm and trying 2 GCs at the same time, they can only say no.


    Watch out, I bought a coughee priced at 1.95 and the suspected manager serving me asked how much Wontwo voucher was for, I answered honestly "up to 2.45" .I watched the till display and the cheating so and so amended the price to 2.45 .
    If someone does that to me again I am going to ask for receipt to put the frighteners on them and maybe mumble "trading standards"

    When is it going to get better?

    Has taken the buzz off my holiday imagining I'm going to be sunbed bound

    And those things that pop into your brain at night... no travel insurance email or postal pack received
    It tracked on Q - looked into account & yes I am insured
    But would like the 1.99 paperwork please

    I am wondering if they stagger the MOCs - once a certain number have been printed they shut the page down.
    I printed some yesterday and these have June 8th dates on them - maybe the page will show coupons again after this date?

    But there are a few others that I know OH would not like but they look fab - there is a parrot one and one with flamingos on them - suitable not the neon pink flamingoes. Also a very subtle pineapple one
