    Last time I went the girl on the till gave me my receipt and then screwed up the next receipt that popped out.
    She did this twice.
    I'm sure she was throwing away coupons?

    You have to make sure that you give your costalot card over first before scanning the wuntoo app - they should go on straight away - I use my plastic card and then look at the costalot app on my phone to check the balance.
    Its useful to have previous receipts with you- I am going to dig mine out now incase I have the same issues as you

    Which reminds me I still need to get a cat carrier

    So far I've whittled it down to Wilkos small ones which are 10 using a love2shop voucher or Argos medium ones for 15 using a gift voucher and nectar points

    Such a lot to catch-up on as I've been busy busy busy the last couple of days, studies and writing and typing. My osteo in my fingers is complaining today.

    I've got car insurance to get quotes on, order a new bank card, and a heap of reading both here to catch-up, and looking for naughty boys of the 1950s, 60s and 70s in Newcastle. Racketeers are the guys I'm after serious business in some cases I've read about in other parts of the Country.

    We had rain, well a spritz I would describe it as. Don't think it hit the ground, it dried up before landing

    Hugs to the Elite poorly and special thoughts to those low in mind and body. Your in my thoughts.

    [QUOTE=elainemn;74522821]
    For some reason the Lloyds kids accounts suddenly appeared on dws online banking but the hfax ones have not appeared on mine. Still the reduction in interest payable balance from 20k per account to 5k has let us scrambling, lets just hope nwide do not get any ideas...

    HI Michaels, can you please remind me which Halifax kids account had the interest change as DD might have quite a bit in this account and I need to change it to something better. Do you know where best to put it? She is 14 now and it is actually her not mine so want the best interest and can tie it up for a few years if necessary as she does not know about it and it is her house deposit fund as we have saved her family allowance for her since birth. Thanks

    So Child's instant access savings account at Lloyds and Halifax, identical except lloyds pays interest quarterly and hfax annually. From 21 July 2% interest rate on up to 20k reduced to up to 5k.


    Nationwide child saver 1 withdrawal per annum or lose interest pays 2.5% on up to 50k.


    I picked up my order and the tills were not giving out the 5 vouchers so they emailed one instead.


    I have things to return, could you confirm it's the Mansfield NG18 9DD address please michaels?

    For AP 20 vouchers, I notice this on Las Iguanas ...

    https://www.iguanas.co.uk/shop

    Maybe not ideal, probably overpriced, and not sure if available in the restaurant, but a route to using them up to add to your meal? Using NUS you apparently get 40% off food, 25% off drinks - I have no idea whether that would work with this too but a discount meal out with a few sealed drinks to takeaway (potentially reduced) ...
