    Help please! Money less than stated in post? 5th Jul 18 at 2:56 PM
    Hi all, Iíve won this prize which Iím really pleased with however when Iíve received confirmation the money is £250, not £500 as stated in this post. Iím just wondering if the original amount stated is a mistake or if they changed it or if thereís anyway to find out.

    £250 is great but wonít get us far on hotels in New Hork, £500 night have covered it! Thanks everyone

    When you click into it, It does say £250 spending money not £500.

    Congratulations though. Nice win!

    I think the T&Cs are at:
    http://www.capitalfm.com/terms-conditions/thomas-cook-airlines-capital-manchester-liverpool/
    But this also says £250, not £500

    Yes Iím surprised too, which is why I wondered if maybe the prize money had been changed for whatever reason. Itís a bit of a strange mistake.

    Thanks everyone!
