    The MoneySavingIdiot reclaims 80 - by going through old emails 13th Jun 19 at 6:04 PM
    Right, some of you know the drill by now, but if you don't, here it is. While being a writer at MSE means I help other people save money, when it comes to my own cash, I'm usually in a right muddle. But now I'm looking to unmuddle myself and in the process motivate fellow MoneySavingIdiots. Previously I've covered train delays, overseas travel and credit scores. This week: reclaiming cash (kind of).

    Reading the just eat story it seems to imply the author drank a bit too much, ordered a pizza and then passed out. They have then complained that they didn’t receive the pizza and demanded a refund.

    The chances seem quite high that the author didn’t hear the pizza guy turn up so it seems slightly unfair to demand a refund for something that sounds like it was there own fault!

    This is barely any better than "make thousands from banks by looking at your account balance."
