    If you are ordering the 02 free SIM remember to go through Q for 10 Cashback if you top up. You seem to have a 1 in 3 chance of getting either a 10 or 5 Am4zon gift card offer on the pack (with 10 top up) or free Doro Primo (with a 15 top up). You can only claim the offer on your specific pack (I tried claiming 10 Am4zon with 5 offer pack and no joy).

    Thanks Anon. Seen any good deals for non-NFC which would then allow new set up and transfer to current phone which already has NFC? Please and thanks.

    S have a few phones on clearance but so didnt notice the prices due to them not having NFC. With additional accounts it could be an opportunity .

    For those looking for a new Droid phone, this may be the best deal at the moment for a phone with NFC and minimum Android 4.4 Kitkat os (please post if a better deal found):

    Sim Free Alcatel U5 4G Mobile Phone - Black / Grey
    http://www.argos.co.uk/product/7348105

    Argos have this at 64.99 on offer. Note this specific U5 4g, the cheaper/other version does not have NFC, this one mentions it in the spec on Argos site.

    If you go through VC today they are offering 10 Argos voucher back on a 50 spend. This makes it effectively 54.99.

    Not as good as the A3 deal in November/December but I cannot see better at the moment?

    Note this is not a recommendation, I have no knowledge of the phone I was just seeing what the cheapest nfc phone was I could find.

    if any friends of mine over 50 want to join they would as well as me receive a 100 gift card

    Doesnt the AP thing finish end of this month, or have I got that wrong?

    I want to use my droid HoF to buy a sweater. There is no store nearby so I would need to order. Ideally I would order 2 sweaters in different sizes and return the one that didn't fit. This would cost 50 of which 20 is the droid voucher. If I then return one 25 sweater do you think they would refund the 25 to my payment card or do you think they would refund 5 to the card and 20 to a gift card? Thanks

    What does it say on the voucher/giftcard ...? I will go and check

    PEx - e-gift tandcs say if only part of a card is used, a new one should be issued to the value of the balance (https://www.pizzaexpress.com/Terms-and-Conditions-Pages/eGift).

    Mands - use only once, transaction must be equal to or greater than giftcard value

    C0sta - normal e-gift, balance remains on card

    Gweggs - use only once, balance lost if not spent in one transaction

    20 meal - use only once, must be equal to or greater than voucher value

    10 dining out - no change, balance stays on card for next time

    HouseofF - no change, balance stays on card for 24 months after last use

    PCW/Curry - assume same as HouseofF as I dont have one to check

    I think that covers them all. Please let me know if any errors.

    Needless to say I have used them fairly good to easily in 2 other marks - one a main store and one a simply foods.

    according to t+c. - The Referral Gift will only be dispatched to the Referrer after the Friend has paid 3 policy premium payments to sunlife..

    according to the letter 'the friend' has to phone sunlife quoting a reference number to qualify for the gift card.
    But t+c also quotes the friend must not hold or have held a policy policy

    I applied as several of us here did.paying the minimum of 4 a month to receive 100 m+s card...ive had one phone call from them and the card has come thru automatically- and yes I assume I cancel policy as well as dd

    These one4all cards are getting on my nerves. Thought I would have a go at purchasing the above mentioned phone from Argos with them. I have 3 cards with 10 on them, plus an argos 7 voucher so would have to use other means to pay the rest. Unfortunately you cant do that with one4all cards.
