    I got a few 02 SIMs a few months ago when they had 10/5 Am4zon or 10 free credit on - each when you topped up 10. I went through Q and TCB - four paid out so far, a few others still tracking . Top up therefore covered by cashback and profit from the promo .

    Someone highlighted that to get the credit off, top up 11 not 10 as you can then extract 10 to MS, Pl4ystation credit, G00gle Pay, 4pple App Store or others. Of course, I spotted this AFTER I had topped up 10 so am still sitting with 10 on some ... if you sign up to 02 Rewards it adds 50p (cannot remember if you have to use it?) so after a while in theory I will have enough to withdraw - and credit still on to keep me on 02 Priority .

    To kill my PAYG balance before the number transferred out recently, I made donations to charity (from memory some charities accepted 1, other charities had a higher minimum donation).

    Just checking - for 02 it is one chargeable call every 6 months to keep the SIM active - there is no need to top up again beyond the first top up (unless of course you spend all the credit!).

    So order SIM through Q or TCB, top up 10, hopefully 10 back and then use that credit to keep you going with Priority .

    Good morning.

    10% code found for Tr4vrlelodge, but it is limited to 2 nights (I assume splitting the booking may work - though you then have to reset your key during the stay) ... can it be beaten? The downside is the 10% on TCB has now dropped to 5% .

    Booking hotels is also not working with a fixed price, as I appreciate Tr4vrlodge prices also go up if you wait - it is not easy being Elite. I sometimes think it would be less stress being a Muggle - see item, select, pay ... move on.

    TM have a look at towerhouse pans. We bought the 28cm frying pan a few weeks ago for Iceland warehouse store and its the best pan I've ever owned? It was only 9.99 and far superior to pans I've paid over 20 for. Anyway yesterday we were in there and they had a 3 piece pan set for 39.99 so we've bought that too and I've just extended the warranty to 5 years for free small things and all that
    Edited to say ive just checked thr receipt and they were only 29.99 even better, their online reviews are excellent too.
    Beautiful weather again today, I'm going to stroll slowly up to town collect some items from super drug, m n s, enquire if boots perfume counter order my perfume do they get the credit for it of is it still just an online sale, shop local and all that. And then I'll stick my nose into work I think not for long though if the suns still as hog as it is now.

    You need a 10 plus vat spend so at least 12 and there is a limited list of retailers - Superdrug is good, I think its 15 for free delivery.
    Also Groupon and Marks

    I collected from the sorting office to save the embarrassment of going through it all again!

    My phone has come up with the dreaded message on 00002
    - enter your number and we will text you a code

    Then there is a number in a box - what is this? Is this my 0222 number?

    I am resigned to having to top up. I have a new sim in readiness but I dont think you get cashback if you have not topped up within 30 days of getting the sim - is that correct or have I made that up?
