    Dear H4lifax

    We have our Kids accounts with you for the higher rate on the regular saver. But in your wisdom this year all the statements come out in my name only, with no mention of the child's name anymore? What is the point of that? It is not my account, I am just a trustee! You have just created more work as I now have to find old statements to match up the account numbers. You really do make life more difficult - when you merged with Ll0yds you removed online access so we cannot regularly check the balance without traipsing into branch.

    This is not really what you expect from a major bank.

    Your sincerely

    Good morning all!


    The muffin offer worked for me this morning .


    I went shopping last night whilst the football was on, it was lovely and quiet! It was pretty successful, I went to Sainsburys and bought 6 each of the rose wines for CS/COS and also found some of those 20p mexican sauces. Then I went to A's for the pinot grigio, fuel, shreddies and milk. Even though I'd written a list I still managed to mess it up a bit and bought the milk on a T shop, which doesn't compare . At least it still only works out as 80p I think after cashback, but it could have been a lot better!!



    After work today we're driving straight to Gatwick, then we're off to Italy for 4 days for my cousin's wedding. I love a good wedding!

    How come the SD discount only came off my receipt as 10% on Saturday? I though someone mentioned it was now 20% or was that a short term offer? Yes I used NUS and Loyalty.

    Thank you

    I then drew down on mine so for the 1st time ever all COS accounts have a zero balance

    The sweetener is the Whole Earth granules with stevia that has been on the list before with a discount, free today but only from the Co-op. I've only seen it in our bigger Sainsburys.

    I've also got free Stork 100% coconut oil block 500g from Morrisons - its vegan. Again something I am not likely to buy.

    Nothing new on Quidco clicksnappy either

    Possibly your Sainsburys might have sold the Arla milk for 1.25. Ours does not carry very much stock and its been very hit and miss - we need milk and it has none or we have plenty of milk when the sainsburys shelves are full
    It never has the skimmed green version so we got the full fat version instead - it is taking some getting used to in tea - might be better in coffee. But on the posh muesli we have from Holland & Barrett the full fat milk is gorgeous.
    So I am thinking that in an ideal world and with enough space in the fridge it would be green milk for brews and full fat for breakfast cereals - we don't get through enough milk to justify having 2 bottles now but possibly when we have guests for a few days it might be worth having both.

    I also checked marks sparks as the offers renewed overnight.

    The new offers are valid for 2 weeks - maybe other new things will pop up in the meantime.

    OH has the biggest choice and his include buy iced drinks in the caf! for half price - I suppose its not a bad offer if your marks caf! is closer and/or you have no Neros - 00002 have a BOGOF offer on iced drinks in Nero

    The emergency card only allows one offer to choose from but much worse, my main card where most of the sparks points are and the back up card with less than a thousand, both have 5 off 35 online food order - that's it, no bonus offers, no 20% off a choice of 4 various clothing departments. Just the one offer

    The overpriced dine in offer for 12 instead of 10 (fewer meal choices) is still on until July 17th so its something else I wont be buying in Marks.

    Yes, it would have been a lot better if I'd just got the milk whilst I was in Sains. But my plan was to get it in a comparison shop in A's.....I just got the wrong shop . Nevermind! It also pained me to pass by all the 5p whoopsied salad bags, stir fry bags and bread in A's, but we're off now for 4 days so they wouldn't have kept.
