FREE membership offers BUT..... they will charge you anyway.

This system is fiddly, only a few local restaurants take it and it has very restrictive conditions. I took out a short term membership as part of a special offer with my Family and Friends Railcard renewal. I was well aware that I would have to cancel by a specific date to avoid being charged £39.99 for a full years membership. I called to cancel in good time, sent back my card in good time, all of which was confirmed by email from the company. So I was amazed to see that they still took the £39.99 from my bank account. Called them up to complain, they freely admitted this was their error and promised to refund. This amount also took my account overdrawn (something that NEVER happens) but they refuse to compensate for my bank charges. IN A NUTSHELL... they will make you jump through many hoops to cancel then take your money anyway. AVOID.

Glasses Direct

So helpful and even odd requests catered for!

I recently had my eyes tested at a well known high street opticians and was given a simple prescription. This store was recommending glasses starting at £150 but as I only wear them for driving and they live in my car I was none too happy.
I tried out a few trial pairs from Glasses direct, and settled upon a frame I liked. I am now the proud owner of 1 pair of driving glasses, with fancy anti glare lenses and another pair of sunglasses all for £80. The sunglasses are not prescription and I expected that request to cause a problem, but not at all, the call centre staff were helpful and polite. Will definitely use again.

Excellent service with extra honesty too!

I have just made my first order with Boilerjuice, everything went smoothly with great communication at every stage. I saved £80 on this delivery of 500L compared to my usual supplier. Best of all, the day after I ordered, I received an email saying that the company supplying the oil had reduced their prices overnight, and I got a £7 refund. Obviously, I would never have known about that, and that honesty will make me a Boilerjuice customer from now on. Many thanks.

BigBusTours Hong Kong

Excellent, well organised and affordable way to see the city.

Hong Kong for most people will never be a two week holiday, it is usually a stopover on the way somewhere else. So, if like us you only have a couple of days in Hong Kong, you will not do better than the Big Bus Tour. For a very reasonable $40 (US) you can see the whole city in one day, learning as you go and not having to worry about how to get from a to b. Peak Tram and Star Ferry tickets are included (although to be fair the Star Ferry only costs pennies anyway) but loved the fact that we jumped the hour long queue at the Peak Tram as tickets were in our hand.

Have done Big Bus Tours in other cities, and my only complaint with Hong Kong would be that their stops are not clearly marked with a sign on the street. Would be helpful if you are joining the tour at an outlying stop.
