    OH has done it on his phone but we cant understand why its 2 free hot drinks.
    it says The Telegraph free hot drink expires 0ct 27th and then underneath it says send to a friend .

    Not clicked that bit yet but if he clicks it and then sends it to my email address will it also appear on my nerooos app or will it just in an email?

    I haven't done the above steps yet via my app - does getting sent a free drink, if it does send a free drink - will that stop me doing the above steps and then sending OH a drink?

    I think it is per phone/number for the Telegraph one, maybe LOL

    Thanks to save student site and O3 241 on cakes. I was bad and paid for extra cream






    12.95. Down to 2.95, would have been 2.45 without cream extra

    USet off for D's football in the pouring rain then spent the match baking in the sun and got burned again. This is getting ridiculous,how can one get sunburned in the middle of October? Left me feeling zonked so spent the afternoon chillaxing rather than hunting t mags.

    Edit: also need to go to hfords as tomorrow is last day for free mot.

    It might be once per handset, I did one on spare phone (then sent the voucher to my main phone), then on spare one uninstalled/re-installed, logged into another Nero acc and tried again but the voucher didnt appear.

    Is anyone else finding rec hogg very slow at the moment.

    At the start of the week on day 2 or 3 I upload the bigger value and non food shop receipts which are taking up to 3 days to be accepted.
    Then as if someone is meeting targets and needs to desk clear they just mark them all as being out of date - they are not they are all this weeks. Or incomplete which they are not as I take 6 pics for the bigger receipts. Or blurred .

    I then send them for review and again this can take up to 3 days.

    Sometimes I just re-upload them but then it can take up to another three days or they just get marked as duplicated.

    By day 5 or 6 in the week I am uploading the smaller value receipts but by then I have no idea what has or hasn't been accepted from earlier in the week. I am also worried that they are going to do day 5 or 6 receipts first before the day 2 or 3 ones, for 5 points which will then take me over a hundred points so the bigger receipts worth 15 or 20 points also end up just being 5 points.

    By day 6 I have no idea if I have or haven't uploaded my maximum allowance of 20 acceptable receipts or if I have exceeded the three receipts per store per day allowance.

    Then the new week starts without the previous weeks receipts being accepted and the entire saga starts again

    We called into superdrug on the way back this afternoon and I got some RTCs

    I found on the hair care stand one single pack of metal free hair bands - 14 brown - exactly what I needed. Bands all seem to have vanished over the summer and finally my hair is long enough for a pony tail again.
    They were marked up as 65p but they went through the till at 26p

    barcode ends 1760

    Also on the RTC stand 4 packs of little girls pink gingham cloth alice bands and flower clips marked down to 15p - perfect for the Christmas shoe boxes
    barcode 0093

    And then at the till a pack of Huggies baby wipes for 25p

    The till girl scanned my NUS card and student discount came up on the till but nothing was taken off but even so very happy with this.

    I have already had the welcome drink - even deleting the app and opening a new account on a new SIM doesn't work . Oh for all the extra phones we had when setting up AP this time last year .

    The Telephone code worked though .

    Although I scanned it I didn't get a stamp on the app and also the promo game doesn't seem to work even though I have the latest app? Edit - just noticed you only get a go if you pay for a drink .

    Are the Tele codes unique, as it disappeared after use on my Droid but is still showing after use on my iPhone .

    Thanks

All I can say is come here where you are loved, we will look after you. xx

    Why would you throw paper in the bin when it can be recycled? Such a waste

    I am taking back any disparaging remarks I made about Hanley earlier in the week

    We parked on Mr T and walked up to town - its all uphill, very steep and it was blowing a howling gale but I did notice for the first time how beautiful the Victorian buildings were - you just had to ignore the modern ones.

    Best bit though was going to the shiny new Nationwide - we had not even realised that they had shut the old one and this was the first week of the shiny new one being open.
    It has open benches, chairs and tablets for customers usage, a nice seating area, a coffee machine and a very glossy new look. The chap said that all nationwides are getting a make- over over the next 4 years, wherever its possible. Not sure if that is exactly possible for the few branches I can think of - like trying to polish a t***

    So that's the best tourist attraction in Hanley now - the new nationwide building society
