Recovery Chocced In

Recommended Posts

The last time I bought a bar of Bourneville it was circa 60p. From the same petrol station it is now 83p.

Nearly a quid for admittedly pretty poor quality chocolate (That's not to say I don't like it, I just know it's junk :D)

Arrived home to a letter from Nationwide saying I'll now be gettinf 1.25% rather than 1.5% interest on my ISA.

Viva le recovery

Best response is to vote with your feet (or money in this case). Close the ISA and tell them why.

Looked at the chocolate in the 'christmas aisle' at Morrisons. There are hardly any reductions. Indeed the tin of chocolates is £5 .. I think asda and tesco were selling them at £4 before xmas.

Didn't buy a thing.

The annoying part is that I moved to Nationwide as they are a building society (I didn't know they were ****s then) and to stick one finger up at Lloyds.

I really know how to pick 'em. :rolleyes:

I picked up one of Sainsbury's taste the difference ham, mushroom and mascarpone pizzas for lunch today saw it looking positively anaemic on the conveyer belt asked the checkout girl not to put it through. Said quite loudly not paying £5 for a ham pizza with one piece of meat on it.

my children are getting easier now and I am planning to resume making my own from scratch again, they got quite a reputation in my village and about 60p each. Need a breadmaking to knead the dough though.

I can beat that. I just arrived home to a letter from Cheshire saying I'll be getting 1% instead of 3% on my ISA! Cheshire == Nationwide, I believe.

Just moved mine. To post office at 1.8%. Only gains me a couple of extra quid, but it'll have to do.

Best response is to vote with your feet and buy better chocolate cheaper in a different place.

Same thing.

Like-for-like sales at Morrisons have fallen 5.6%, in the six weeks to 5 January, sending shares tumbling by 7%.

It said a lack of online presence and competition by cut-price shops, such as Lidl and Aldi, were behind the fall.

Also time and time again the shopping experience (aside from the actual goods for sale at Morrisons) at their stores leaves a lot to be desired.
