« on: 17 January 2022, 10:36:48 »

The expected change regarding the use of Visa credit cards on Amazon.co.uk will no longer take place on January 19. We are working closely with Visa on a potential solution that will enable customers to continue using their Visa credit cards on Amazon.co.uk. 

Should we make any changes related to Visa credit cards, we will give you advance notice. Until then, you can continue to use Visa credit cards, debit cards, Mastercard, American Express, and Eurocard as you do today.

Thank you for being an Amazon customer.




I reckon quite a few people had started shopping else where and forced Amazon to change thier minds.  ::)

My "ocasional " driver is my 2.2 Omega. 8) :y

Am considering what to have next.  I liked the interior size of the Senator along with the comfort (Allthough I never owned one I drove a late model one every week 3.0 24v)   The Carlton Diplomat I had was a tad smaller inside but the comfort was good.  Of my 3 Omegas the Elite was comfortable but the other 2 with cloth seats are adequate.  But again I feel there was more space in the MFL than the Facelift models.

The future.  I really dont like the idea of a "plug in" car with only battery power :-\

A plug in Hybrid sounds good and might get out and about more.  But I like the space and luxury of a car.  But I would guess everything I want is too exspensive.

A luxury estate would be nice as it would be a lot easier to get the wheelchair in/out as its only just fits in the Omega boot.

I do however like the look of the Pug 508 style wise I just dont want bucket type seats - So still looking at options.

Cyclists push the boundaries of the law too far now (Why not allow more flexibillity and ignore red lights)



Ever looked at what some car drivers do? There's a lot more of them, and some of them shouldn't be allowed out of the house without their shoe laces tied together and their mouth sewn shut with lockwire.

Tell us about it.  Earlier in the year a driver demolished a trolley park area at our local B&Q., ending up with it's front end in the air on top of the wreckage.

Then, just the other week my local Sainsbury's had this happen in their car park:

Heres how they park in Doncaster just up the road from me. :-X

My bank to bank payments are instant.

Yorkshire Building Society takes 1/3 days depending on what time/day the request goes in.

I just got the timeing wrong I reckon and not antispateing the delays with the bank holidays.

   :-X :-X :-X :-X  about the Apps/sytem on dateing the payments  :-X :-X :-X :-X
Whenever I move money from a YBS savings account, as long as it is before 4pm, it hits my current account at nineish the next morning. Christmas really shouldn't make that much difference, because the payments system is run by one of the big banks, can't remember which.

They obviously dont treat us all the same then. :-X

I know.  Here in the Sheffield area I think we had on one driver got caught on the way to work the day red light cameras went active at traffic lights and then the same lights going home that night.

General Discussion Area / Banking - Christmas Bank Holidays.
« on: 29 December 2021, 11:34:04 »
A couple of years ago I gained a 12 late change because of a bank delaying the payment.  I got the charge back as it was not my fault and got 10 compensation for the agro it caused.

With payment due this week I made a manual payment takeing into consideration the 2 working days transfer time  and paid last months balance in full plus some extra to reduce next months payments.

I made the payment on Tue 21st so should have arrived by the Fri 24th.

I thought it was due 29th for payment (automatic last balance in full payment) that mysteriously got changed to 27th (They did this on other occasions)  either way the payment was made on time.  But thier records show I made the payment on thier app on the 24th.

The problem I made with paying early was I didnt anticipate all the crap I have today.

Thier system has taken the setup ammount to pay last months bill in full.  Normally this is not a problem, but with one thing and another (cash machines running out of money over the holiday period etc etc) my money was drawn out and a minimum balance left to start the New Year (I do this every year)

So I get an email saying I will be going overdrawn please add funds by the end of the day etc.

So I try to do the right thing as history has a habbit of repeating itself.

Timeing goes against me.

I cant no matter what get to the bank to pay in today allthough I could have yesterday and Monday but they were shut.

I can afford to pay the whole balance in full but the cash aint in the bank.

I can tranfer money into the bank but thats 1/2/3 working days.

Most of the country works 24/7  just not the banking system.

Rant over - possible bank charges on way.

Anything allowed on the road should be insured

Anything mechanically propeled should have appropriate road worthyness certificaton (Including cars over 40 years old)

Cyclists push the boundaries of the law too far now (Why not allow more flexibillity and ignore red lights)

Horses/riders should have insurance (I got my jag trampled on in the late 80's by a horse at a juction with a 14 year old rider on it that was usung the horse without the owners permision)

PEDESTRIANS - There is one in a local village to me that just walks straight across juctions with his dog without checking 1st. 

1st time was a petrol station managed to stop within an inch of him.

2nd was the other week, went to see my brother an the bottom of the road is a bit of a blind bend, I saw him so he must have seen me but just blateently walked in front of me.

It seems the law is now in his favour - glad I have a dash cam.

Roads are for cars
Paths are for pedestians.
and the laws an ass

Looks like car design from the fifties trying to predict what cars will look like in 1975.

Same time the battery powered MG was designed then. :-X
