    And of course it is bound to rain for the air show

    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 just google it each time, probably last done about 12 months ago.



    In Grggs asked if I could pay for a 5 gift card with a 5 ap but the till wouldn't accept it.

    We had BellaI for lunch yesterday, LasIgua lunch today ... and bought BellaI takeout on the way home for tea today (and tomorrow) - 100 spent .

    If you are going to LasIgua, use your NUS card and get 40% off food/25% off drinks - I still can't bring myself to pay full even when getting it free .

    For BellaI, 50% off takeaway on their website for pizza/pasta. There is a 40% off main courses kicking about if you need to discount more than two people - 3 mains on Wontu if only two people eating .

    As usual OH had to take my phone outside as it just wont log on and open inside
    My store had the usual problems - this time there tills were not accepting card payments - only cash, gift cards and loyalty points.
    The till receipt printer was only printing half of the till roll so one receipt does not have enough detail for the receipt snapping apps and the other is dubious. OH didnt get any receipt.
    But I did accumulate a womble so at least Ive got points to go on.

    Then we went to Holland &Barret for free Hippeas - thank you 000002 and at least I got receipts there - these will go into the food bank collection - I still havent got to Mr T ...

    Weve been using the 10 ones two at a time at a sizzling pub, two mains and desserts plus two drinks for about 23 so about 3 real money. Only have one of these left now.

    Lots of 20 ones left.

    Hello from Spain everyone. I have just caught up -- very sorry to hear your news Zippy.

    I'd hoped there would be news of wonderful online bargains so that i could partake from here, but nothing . I don't even have the Sparks free jewellery or the Nectar offers. I used to do all the 'swipe your card in the local' offers and now they have stopped giving them to me.

    My great luxury is the annual holiday, not very mse, I am afraid, but we are having a wonderful time and are making the most of various hotel offers which are around. I never thought I'd decide to go to northern Spain because it is cooler than England! We are having lovely weather here, it's hot, but not too hot, and, of course, there is air conditioning everywhere. The only downside is that I keep wondering how my poor garden is doing...
