Loop: Romford

  • Angela G @AngelaG Romford updated 2 years ago

    Some useful information.

    Check your supermarket receipts. Every time I shop in a supermarket I am overcharged. The worst one recently was £3.97, I bought a small bottle of olive oil for £2 but was charged £5.97. This time I asked for the manager, I got my refund plus a gift card for £5. the last time was for 39p. The annoying thing is, that all day, until someone checks their receipts, the supermarket is charging this higher price.

    I have just renewed my home and contents insurance for a saving of £114 a year.

    I have booked a fire safety check with London Fire Brigade, for over 60s they will fit free smoke alarms, I think they may do Carbon Monoxide detectors as well.

    I have asked Water Company for info on a water meter. It also states on my bill that if income is less than £16,105 or is not enough to cover essential bills, you may qualify for a reduced tariff.
