    Thanks for that, thought I didn't recognise the name.... Nearest centre 218 miles away . Kwik fit a couple of pounds cheaper and then the CB and freebie.

    Looking for an additional Droid to activate an account for your OH . Pixi 3 price has dropped again. Note no NFC so this cannot be used to play the game, just to activate a new account.

    https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/ee-alcatel-one-touch-pixi-3-35-inch-1499-499-10-top-up-argos-collection-2876275

    Now down to 4.99 in Arg0s - in theory 10 top up required, but order online and pay with Fasttrack collection and only pay 4.99.

    CEX seem to be paying 15 for trade in.

    Untested... but ordered ready for activating at the end of the month so I can play in February . You are limited to ordering 1 from Arg0s ... per order it seems .

    Been shopping online for 2 front tyres.
    Did a bit of research
    http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/accessories-tyres/92873/all-season-tyre-test-20172018-results-by-category

    Checked prices for nearly all fitters etc.

    Best Price for my choice of Michelin was Kwik Fit, also says you can get free mobile fitting for 2 or more tyres.

    Best price per tyre by at least 10. also freebie winter care kit when ordered online
    https://www.kwik-fit.com/offers/michelin-winter-kit-offer and CB from Q 3.5%TCB 3.28%

    Still just about 100 each but as car is the newest I have ever had, I want to make sure I get th best I can.

    Hope this can help others who may be looking for tyres.

    Also you normally get your receipt in a wee booklet that sometimes has money off stuff in it. I know the staff at my local and have always had good service from them.

    I seem to think that you need to use a proper till to scan your NUS card - the shop I was in last night didn't have any self scans anyway

    I seem to be getting a MOC every 2nd shop but only if there is a day imbetween

    Just choose 'membership card' (or something like that), swipe your Coop card, then swipe your NUS card.
    Tills can be a bit slow showing the discount, but it does come off. Mind you if you use cash they're the same tills as the old Morrisons ones, so it takes forever to take your coins & count them.

    With Argos Fast Track thing, can you just type the number into the tablet ordering thing or do you have to go to an SA..

    If SA would they insist on you getting a top up?

    Easy enough to order before going in (even if on the app on your phone, which is what I did).
