    In my area the restaurants do generally seemed to be booked up Monday-Wednesday – in fact, there was a post on our local Facebook group from someone who had their partner’s birthday upcoming, and she couldn’t get a spot because she underestimated how much EOTHO would impact things.

    I’ve also noticed some of my family members, who rarely eat out, have done so a few times this month.

    That being said, I’m not sure how many of the people going Mon-Weds are the people who would have normally gone Fri/Sat and simply moved the day. Very hard to say!

    Simply complete the survey to be entered: https://www.moneymagpie.com/is-your-child-a-university-student-complete-this-survey-and-win-an-amazon-voucher

    do we get to keep our magpies yet for taking survys? as last time I went to do a survey when I first joined, it took magpies off me, didn’t even let me do a survey, then never gave me them back. bit unsure now, that’s why I haven’t been taking surveys from here.

     

    Hi Claire,

    Two things.

    1) This is an internal survey, so doesn’t affect your Magpies either way.

     

    2) For those surveys currently advertised as ‘offers’ under ‘Magpie Money’, you do lose a Magpie for clicking on it (this is to help us avoid spam clicks) but you’ll gain them back once the survey has been completed.

    However, these are third-party surveys, not run by us, so it is possible they won’t find you suitable for the survey they’re running at that time – so it’s a bit of a risk. We have no control over this, unfortunately, but we are looking to completely relaunch the section in the near future…so keep your eyes peeled!

    It’s amazing how the ‘just a few quid’ things add up! I’ve also realised how much I spend on pet treats! It’s normally so easy to pop into the pet shop and pick up a special chew for the dog or a new toy for the cat. Now it’s a total faff, they’re getting fewer treats and my purse is much happier for it!

    Haha, same for my dogs! They were getting used to a new toy every two or so weeks…not anymore.

    Yes I know of two people who have won and they often have really good raffles too x it used to be the case that you were given Dorset Cereals tokens for playing a mini game a day – because if you do the spin to win, you can win things, but the mini games are now just for fun x there is pairs, a little make a word game, and a wee numbers game and they are very addictive I warn you! You can also play Maximiles games online and you do get points for these!

    Thanks Lisette, very interesting to know!

    I live in the highlands of Scotland and I was totally shocked one evening to see my postcode IV12 4SS come up on the site with a huge red button CLAIM NOW on it…it was around 9pm and I was doing my usual daily checking – I shrieked so loudly my husband got a shock! I should only have received £10 but got £29 with all my bonus building! I know of two friends on the same site, one who shared a claim of £138 with a friend – or rather they got £138 each – and another friend who got £1009 on it as there should have been five winners, and nobody but her claimed! That is what I call a result. On another note, I actually have joined the paid for Postcode Lottery and its only £10 per ticket per month for daily draws and I have won a total of £80 on it since last October (2019) which I think is pretty good too! x have a go I say! x

     

    That’s awesome Lisette – thanks for sharing!

    I’m in the same position – I work from home usually but am still making big savings at the moment.

    Usually I would go out with my friends once or twice a week for a meal, or at least drinks, so that’s probably £40 or so a week. I also was getting into (quite a bad habit) of having a few too many Costa Coffees each week, so I’m probably saving about £30 a month or so there as well.

    I’ll confess to having the odd takeaway delivered by Just Eat over the past few weeks, but we all need a little pick-me-up, I guess!

    How annoying! It can be tricky to get hold of a human being, but try here – https://www.amazon.co.uk/hz/contact-us

    There’s a bot you can ask questions to and hopefully, if that can’t solve the issue, they’ll put you through to a person. I have got through before, so it is possible, but it can take some persistence!

    In all the years of entering competitions courtesy of MoneyMagpie since July 2017, I’ve never known that there has been a forum! As I am massive compaholic I will post a few comps courtesy of my Readly subscription but have other hobbies and an 11 year old to home school at the same time! Good luck on who ever wins the £50 Amazon voucher as I know it’ll help towards some boredom busters whilst on this lockdown

    Haha, thankfully you’ve not been oblivious, we only set it up this month! We’re trying to get the MoneyMagpie community together, especially during this difficult time. Good luck home schooling!

    Hi Jackie,

    Unfortunately it seems a lot of people are having this problem at the moment. Consumer group Which? are really pushing on this now, because there’s up to £7bn owed for cancelled trips.

    Airlines are hesitant to offer cash refunds because they fear it will push them into bankruptcy, but obviously this is destroying customer faith. Which? are asking the government help intervene to protect travel companies, and that any vouchers/credit notes should be guaranteed against insolvency.

    It’s an ongoing issue, with no simple answer, so it’s probably worth making sure the airline is aware that you’re not satisfied with a credit note (although it will probably be hard to contact them) and keeping an eye on what happens as more pressure is put on them to do more.

    We’ll certainly be keeping it under-review. Good luck!
