    This phone has NFC, not sure if any cheaper deals around.
    http://www.argos.co.uk/product/7362332



    If you want a second month and already have an NFC phone, the O2 one above is good, then just transfer the account made on it to your NFC phone.

    Factory reset it and sell to Cex for 21 cash

    I went back to this Sant atm today, and found the 'spot' (marked on photo).
    I tried lots of other atm's including Barclays, but there was nothing.

    Wish I could find one that didn't mean going to town - I need a secluded out of town atm lol



    My 1st day of second month today. Opened all envelopes at home and got a 5 & a 3 gwegg

    I only did 3 atm envelopes, but left about 20-30secs between 2 then did the other one on the way back, as I felt shifty hovering around the atm when people were about

    I couldn't open there as no wifi.

    Someone said it was hard to find good items vs Sains. This is good at the moment, with the Ketchup crisps:

    1x Walkers Baked Mature Cheddar Crispy Crackers (5x25g) 1.79 1.00

    Presumably Italian Herb version also works against S as the third item but my shop was vs T where it is Mature Cheddar and Salt & Vinegar (Salt & Vinegar N/A against S). Alternatively Walkers Baked Crisps could go vs S but not as good due to A's lower individual prices.
    M lists - page 18 (on 40 posts per page setting) - Avs M: post 705-708 inclusive; Tvs M and "Buy in M": post 708 onwards.

    3Dogs' lists - page 6, posts 210-214.

    Google "contactless atm near me" and in theory it'll tell you where.

    You have to keep telling yourself 'not my concern', but if you know people you just can't help but think of them.
    8 years on and when my assistant manager died I have had dozens of messages about it, I had to go back into work mode to organise!!
    Concentrate on eliting (SP?), it saved me in dark times.
    There is another world out there away from work, I could have gone on for another few years but I eventually played the sick card, and haven't regretted it.
    OK we can't have first class holidays in exotic climes, but I have my health, my sanity, my family and friends... what more do I need?
