    Steam mop and camera tripod ordered – via your referral link 🙂

    thanks for bringing this to my attention!

  • Armo says:

    I need to spend 1 pence more.. Damn 🙁

  • Armo says:

    Thanks, will take a look later when home.

    O/T – I have read people on here talking about buying M&S giftcards from Tesco and gaining Club Card points; how do you do it?

    When looking on Tesco’s gift card site – M&S doesn’t seem to be there?

    • Liz says:

      Buy them in store ! I bought about £1700 worth in Dec to get all the extra points. Buy in store in batches of £50 to get the 150 club card points. They sell £25 & £50 & £15 I think.

      • John says:

        Ah…Cheers, Liz.

        Will make a trip to Tesco then.


        • Liz says:

          Tesco started selling some different cards in December – Boots, M&S, Jamie’s Itslian, Odeon, Vue and some others – a better choice. Wish they would do John Lewis and Amazon though!

          • Gavin says:

            Only in some stores though. I’ve cleared out the M&S cards from my local store. £800 worth

          • Rob says:

            Hard to imagine them doing John Lewis, given they can be used in Waitrose, but if they do I will be clearing them out!

          • Liz says:

            I forgot about that ! We don’t have a waitrose near us. Morrisons sell John Lewis though – you can get money off Morrisons petrol to shop in Waitrose!

          • harry says:

            What’s he going to do with the petrol? 🙂

          • Liz says:

            I meant everyone in general can buy from Morrisons – following your advice Harry!

          • Dave Barron says:

            Fair enough it’s not Avios earning but Morrisons now sell
            John Lewis / Waitrose which combines nicely with their Fuel Save promotion (every £10 vouchers earns a 1p per litre discount on fuel). I’ve now got a 20p per litre discount voucher which makes for a nice saving, especially coupled with recent falls at the pumps. They also accept Amex for anyone wanting to hit a spending target too

          • Rob says:

            I will do a Shopper Points piece on this soon.

      • Will says:

        If you sign up to crazynotto you can get m and s gift cards at 10-15% discount. Been doing so for a year now

  • Leo says:

    Used your link Rob – I actually needed to buy a book for work today and Amazon had it! Wouldn’t have known about the offer if I hadn’t read it here – as per usual.

  • Fenny says:

    All the things I need to buy are only available from 3rd party vendors. It would have been nice to get a tenner off a tablet for Pa, but no dice.

  • Frank says:

    Stocked up on some interesting books, via the HFP link. Happy to support this wonderful website!

  • harry says:

    Sine this is the Amazon thread, I have to say their customer service is excellent, the owner/ mgt have obviously decided that they might as well be best in class, it does sort of counter any arguments about paying the right level of tax.

    The good news is: you speak to Live Chat with any sort of reasonable complaint at all & they’ll give you a £10 credit.

    • Mr(s) Entitled says:

      ” it does sort of counter any arguments about paying the right level of tax.”

      Dont think of it as tax avoidance. Think of it as one more crowded class room. One less hospital. One more closed fire station. One less police patrol.

      • harry says:

        Yep I stand corrected, my free £10 does NOT actually counter Amazon not paying the right amount of tax, my apologies.
