I must be the only person left in the UK without Sky TV, but when I switch my broadband recently they were the cheapest by some way - so I've switched to them (which was a very painless process) and I've gained about 4 Mb of speed (up to 12 Mb) which was a pleasant surprise! I might even be tempted with Sky if they keep impressing me!
I've only ever moved 3 times in my life, but I'm on Rightmove all the time. I might even be an addict! I just love using it to nose on my neighbours. I check what house prices are and look at the photos of peoples houses. I know I don't use it for the "Right" reasons, but I still think it's a great website (much better than PrimeLocation and FindAProperty).
I only switched to BT last week (from Orange) and I can't say I've had a single problem yet. The new router appeared on time and on the switch over day I didn't even notice an outage - I'm certainly paying less than I was with Orange and so far I seem to have gained a few (unexpected, but welcome) Mbs - which is great.
The proof with come term no doubt, but so far I can't really fault them.
I love Trustpilot, I love Amazon, but there is something about the people that write the reviews for imdb. Ok, they are Movie geeks and sometimes the information can be overbearing, but they seriously know their stuff.
I can't say that any movie I've watched because of a imdb review has been bad, but I have been put off watching some movies I might have enjoyed because of their reviews.
All in all it's great. I'm on there most lunchtimes.
I've been successfully self employed now for 2 years and had been warned there might be issues when getting re-mortgaged when I originally decided to go it alone. However, Santander assured me I was now in a position to move house.
After a mammoth search (including to 2 properties we were outbid on) we final had offer accepted on a beautiful Victorian semi. Great! We started to get the wheels in motion, but the wheels quickly ground to a halt. After what seemed like endless chasing we discovered that the wheels had actual fallen off - Santander had changed the criteria for self employed people and were not going to lend any money.
We have now lost the house we wanted and will have to start again. Needless to say, this is not the only business Santander will be losing from me!
I used the Compare and Save energy helpline after being driven half mad by British Gas wriggling and confusion tactics.
They were quick to answer the phone, friendly and were able to give me a number of suitable options. Over all I should save around £250 over the next year (one month in, things are looking good so far!).
What a result! Enough to go on holiday and I won't have to play “Gas-bill roulette” every quarter, with no idea what British might charge me next!
As you can imagine; I’m really pleased – I just wish I’d done it sooner. So here’s a warning to everyone – Don’t have misguided loyalties to companies that just take you for granted! Switch and have the last laugh :)
I only caught the Twitter bug about 6 months ago. Prior to that it just seemed weird and to an outsider looking in, I imagine it still does. Don't let that put you off.
Twitter is an amazing stream of consciousness, the best place there is for breaking news and a great place to find likeminded people (you are not alone)! It's also unique. You could change Twitter at all - it just wouldn't work. It is perfect and I couldn't recommend enough!
I use ebay weekly and I can't fault it much.
The way they bring people together is incredible - in my respects it is a model online business.
However, they don't get everything right. E-mail is a little to frequent - I don't want to opt out, but then I don't want to receive quite as much (Calm down ebay!) and you'll get the 5th Star
I used to use Trip Advisor to help plan holidays, but after seeing their "Reviews" on TV I don't think I could use the site in good conscious again. It seems to be mainly for pathetic little Hitlers to run about on a power trip moaning about anything and everything they see. “Oh, the curtains aren’t my favourite colour”, “The door mat was the wrong shade of brown”, “The owner smiled too much”, “The owner didn’t smile enough”…People, get a life!
Given the distress it causes to so many hard working people I’d be pleased if they closed down the site altogether!
The wheel on my childs buggy keeps getting a puncture. Luckily we got insurance through Halfords, and even though we are back there every 2 months or so they are great. They fix it super quick and never give us the 3rd degree our frequency should demand.
Great, friend staff and I'd recommend them to anyone.
One gripe is that the food isn't always as good as it could be, but then the prices are cheap (very cheap!).
When you're in ASDA you don't realise just how cheap it is. I've been shopping their for about 10 months now (since they took over the local Netto) so I haven't had to go anywhere else. The other day I went to Tesco - Ouch! Inflation has certain been in full force there.
I can only imagine that my ASDA is a little oasis of calm in a world where prices everywhere else seem to tick up daily. Also (for the most part) the staff are great! Always bending over backwards to be kind and helpful. ASDA is more than just cheap prices (but the prices are very welcome!)
