he didn't mention that he was in Canada, sent his address to me without country. I saw an all number postcode, state at the bottom was ON, so I assumed it was the US.

yeah no excuse on this one. Never usually bother with a return address, especially when its tracked and signed for.
he got it today anyway so its all good.

Quick FUK help needed…

Brother's bday today. He hasn't said he wants anything, so thinking to get him an experience gift voucher.

Any ideas of good experience days? Not car driving, did that once and it was pretty shit. Budget of £100, ideally in or around London / south east. He's not a foodie.

Did this for a stag the other day. Didn't think i'd be into it but it was fantastic fun.

Facilities are very impressive.

Has anyone jumped ship and regretted it? OnePlus 6T sounds like it's going to be pretty tempting.

Can anyone recommend me a place for 10 people to stay for 1 night in Portsmouth or Brighton? Looking for November 24th weekend for 1 night. Tried Airbnb, HomeAway and most hotels. Budget £300-£400 for the night.

Can anyone recommend a website to get paper carrier bags custom printed? All the ones I have found seem to either be too expensive per unit or have huge minimum runs

Has anyone ever been overcharged customs costs by UPS? I’ve been charged nearly double what it should have been and just wondering how you make a claim with them.

HMRC site only lets you sort claims if it’s been delivered by Parcel Force or Royal Mail.

Any help appreciated, thanks.

Heads up for anyone looking for new gas and electric supplier. Pure Planet are coming out cheaper than bulb so we’re switching to them. All renewable/carbon offset too.

Referral link for free amazon credit here too.

Have they actually overcharged you or is it just the duty plus their admin fee?
