    A little help please

    I am seriously thinking about an android phone. Can I link it to o2 later and get their offers through next year or until it stops

    Ok its a reasonable outlay but would be happy to call it my Christmas as it will bring me joy (ken Marie )

    If I could retrade it back later then that would be good too as I have other Visa cards I could register. You will see I know I will have more time on my hands

    Have added all apps (02, Gweggs etc) so may double up .

    What a difference 5 degrees makes - it is 9.5 here after a few days of chilly 4.

    Feels positively balmy!

    That's what I'd like to do, wonder if anyone has tried that, would need to add a 5/3 each time and build it up

    I've tried it (adding multiple to a gift card). Asked in store. They went through the motions at the till but it would not work. The problem seems to be these are promotional codes - valid against food, clothes and homeware only.

    ** I also asked, tried and failed in greggs **

    I tried to use more than one code at once. I think I managed 5 + 3 together once but liklely the problem was with what I was trying to buy. I have a feeling that yellow stickered stuff will be a problem, as was the 10 meal deal (with wine).

    M&S referred me to google. My query was passed to the wallet team there but all they could tell me was the codes are confirmed valid - please speak to M&S.

    When some of my codes failed (I had not deleted them) the [self service] till later gave a warning and the code was shown on the screen so I took photos.

    On Friday I used a code and it didn't look very promising but ended up working at the final screen. Bought something for <3 with a 3 code.

    To make sure I don't lose any codes, and to help with managing what I (and Mrs thepearce) have used I take screenshots, sync them up to google photos and then add them to individual albums per voucher type. Share the album with Mrs thepearce. That way we can both see them when we need to.

    When we use one a viber/whatsapp to each other is a good way to record it. At some point later I add the relevant photos to a "used" album and renove them from the voucher album. Sounds complicated I guess but has made things a lot easier.

    I lost my mojo for glitching so its been a long time since my last glitch....But I have been reading up now and again but anyhow yesterday I was in sada and thought why not give it a go.

    So, 6 Aussie shampoo and 3 B&H sets later here I am... of course I thought i'd messed it up a million times during the 3 hours but all worked out well except for a apg of 20.27!

    I read up about foil and the dangers of stuff leaching from it using it for baking. So Ive just greased the tin welland Ill hope for the best.

    Its only a tea loaf.

    But a special one.

    Rather than delete in google photos I add it to a used album. I then remove the same photo from the voucher album. You could archive, just remove from album, or delete it instead.
