    I've got the collectables on my carling tap and I have won 4 collectables out of the 14 you need to get a free 4 pack of carling. Last weekend my players on TSYS got 6 goals giving me the 4 collectables and 2 2 off 4 pack. I only win when there is a match on and the next matches are tomorrow at 12:30 and 17:30.

    Did you ever try this? it had crossed my mind for the 2k Nectar offer, but the 1.7% would be a lot of money (to me).
    Originally posted by fuzzgun19
    For the 30k nectar if you converted it to cash at 1pt per 1p during a double up you get about 320 for 34 in fees which seems worth it. Obviously I can't offer a referral on here but you can get extra points with one or wait till October when they tend to run the bonus points promotion giving 30k for a sign up rather than 20k.

    Oh yeah I'd forgotten about that. How did you sign up, I wonder if they offer it to people signing up a certain way?
    Originally posted by fuzzgun19
    Hmm - I got signed up via an elite referral and then managed to get rejected for an account based on how I said I would use the box - perhaps it is because I said I supplied personal services?

    Sadly going back to the OH discussion, despite thinking we should never normally spend 2k in 3 months (given what I earn) OH seems to see it as a personal challenge to spend it in 2 months

    Do the 20 meal vouchers have to be used in one go please ?

    Good Morning all

    No.
    Had a row in the bank with abrupt sa.
    I've been getting mailing to another person but my address.
    I was concerned that someone may be using my address so called in for advice.
    However due to the other persons data protection she couldn't help me.
    Sod my data protection!
    Not happy and haven't got anywhere other than being upset/angry at how I was spoken to.

Could he print out a written confirmation that you have seen him, and what it was about, and what if any action he intends to take about it. Just be apologetic about wasting his valuable time, and you appreciate that he can't do anything about it (of course he can but we want to guilt trip him into doing his job!) but you need it to prove to your OH that you are taking his concerns seriously.

    See what happens, at least if anything happens you'll have proof that you tried to do something about it.

    You're welcome, mischief is my way of life after all. Well that and Pok!mon (still ridiculously addicted that game)

    How's about another naughty limerick?

    There once was a mouse named Keith

    He didn't do it for leisure
    Nor sexual pleasure

    It's the third letter I've had this year.
    It does worry me about identity theft as mums been through it before.
    SA was very unhelpful, refused to give me my paper work back. I felt like she was protecting the other person rather than helping me with my personal concerns.
