  1. Just wish I got more use out of them in this time as they were good. Saved them for best rather than day to day running. Did a couple of half marathons and a few 10k's and that was it. Less than 90k on road in total. Would have another pair if I could get the exchange. Nike air Pegasus zoom turbos
  2. Unless im mistaken they have no choice but to give me a refund on an expensive pair of trainers that are falling appart after such little use/time. Don't get no brownie points for that. Any company has to do this dont they? Wouldn't waste my precious time trying to make a billion pound business look bad with a post on a forum. That's not my intention. The bad service relates to the content of their responses and before anyone says it's not just because I didnt like the what they said. The content really wasn't good. Will try again rather than digressing. C
  3. Hi all. Just wondering if I could get some advice on the following. Bought some Nike trainers at a sale price of £89 the RRP is £160 The sole started falling off them after less than 100km (8 months). Only used them on road and for running races only. Not wore them a lot in this period. Sent them back to Nike. I was hoping for a replacement pair or at least a discount again so I could buy the same pair. Nike said they will only give me the £89 back. Thats good but I cant buy the same pair again which I did really like as they have gon
  4. Thanks for the advice, it's appreciated. I will get some formal advice before jumping in. Reading my original post back it doesn't make it very clear as half of it is hypothetical as I'm exploring options at the moment and just want t ok do the best. What I'm leaning towards is 1) loaning my parents money to clear existing debt and mortgage. This loan will be drawn up and secured against property. No interest charged. 2) This will allow them to downsize, sell their house and move into the house next door to me. 3) I will benefit as I
  5. Thanks for your time. Will take a look.
  6. Hi, Would really appreciate some advice on if I will be liable to pay Capital Gains Tax Summary My parents are about to buy the house next door to me. Cash buyer. Semi detached. Well under the inheritance tax threshold. No outstanding mortgage. As soon as they buy it they want to gift it to myself, wife and or children as I have financially supported them over the years, cleared some of their debt and they want to support their grandchildren. They wont be paying me rent. When they gift it me it will be valued at exactly the same price they paid for it
  7. Thanks for taking the time to reply. Couldn't find the contract but found a receipt. It said insurance for £9.99 but cost was £0.00. As you say it must have been a case of 3 months for 3 then down to myself to cancel which I wasn't aware of. Never going to prove it so will just have to put it down to a lesson learnt.
  8. Think I might be fighting a losing battle with this one but I'm coming to the end of my contract and checked my phone bill just to see what I pay out. Dont normally check the details I just pay it as I trusted that it was correct Really shocked to see throughout my contract i've been paying insurance which I never agreed to. Contacted Vodafone who said tough as I should have checked the phone bill. They also said I took the insurance out in store. I know I didnt take out this insurance and my query is can anything be done to get a refund? Surely they must have a signed c
  9. Sent my Samsung off for repair. Pretty standard repair job with that type of phone. Was told that it would be back within 10 days. Been longer than that now so thought I would chase it up. Tried the website but didnt have the job number so tried the store. Recorded message saying that they are closed for refurb and that any repairs would be sent to another store even further away. Tried the new store. They didnt have it. I asked for my job number so I could trackit myself. They said cant do it. No reason. I asked if the repair copany could send it to a more local store to
  10. Thats amazing. Thanks very much, really appreciated.
  11. Just after some advice on the following and maybe some general fiancial advice rather than full ins and outs of benefits so sorry if I have posted in wrong section and also sorry if it sounds a bit depressing. My mother has been diagnosed with cancer. Hopefully treatable with a 6-9 course of chemo. Anyway. They havent really thought about it yet but sooner or later my mom will go onto half/no pay from work. Mother earns about £1300 a month and father earns a touch less. They have never been much good with money and the majority of their wage goes to paying off debt which totals ar
  12. Thanks very much. Its appreciated . Will take the advice on board
  13. Thanks for the advice
  14. Well, might be exaggerating a bit but will describe the scenario. Bought an oven over/hob 2 years ago. During the years it has suffered from issues like the bottom element blowing and the wires melting. Made a complaint and they were very good and sent me replacement parts and basically acknowledged the issue by sending me parts. 2 years has passed and I there are issue with the product. The main switch into the oven melted, it tripped the mains and smoke everywhere. On top of that a hob blew up and one of the plastic dials snapped. Contacted the company again and they say
  15. I did phone them back rather than pester Lee and they stated it was water damage and it was not covered. Although I cant recall it getting wet I accepted that that may be the cause of the faulty battery. But I did question how could water damage make the chrome USB come loose which was the main issue and they couldnt really explain. I did try it on a bit and said I could have lived with the battery loosing its charge every now and again but surely the USB could and should have been fixed for free or at least been offered before telling me that insurance was the only option.
