Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

The main positive I have from having the sub-forum was that I could easily read the other normal threads without having to read rebrand posts, but it was a slog to read the sub-forum posts this morning.

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

This week, they've only offered me six Nectar prices instead of ten. Same for the booster points products on the Nectar app.

Re: Masks

Back in late September I got in an Uber and the driver asked me if I wanted to take my mask off as he didn't mind.

It's fair to say in mid-October that there's now more people not wearing masks than not, but I'm still wearing them on public transport and in shops.

Re: Yet another Morrisons thread

Is this another attempt by Morrisons to get into the convivence store market, but using McColl's shops and presumably staff?

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

The Corrector just seems to attempt to derail the GB News thread with posts about individual presenters opinions on something we all know the channel is designed to be.

Don't get me wrong, I get where he's coming from, but it's not presentation talk.

Re: The Barclays and other non-Lloyds/TSB Bank thread

I don't see an issue using vertical cards as most are now used that way for contactless or chip and pin transactions.

I'd think those with basic current accounts would be kept horizontal though as they don't have the contactless function?

Re: The Barclays and other non-Lloyds/TSB Bank thread

The Natwest card design doesn't really bother me that much as I rarely get out the physical card for transactions except for using a railway station TVM which doesn't have a contactless reader. (I know other TOC TVMs have them).

Re: The Barclays and other non-Lloyds/TSB Bank thread

I had an email from NatWest informing me that from December, they're reissuing debit cards with Mastercard instead of Visa.
