What about the elderly and anyone else without access to the internet?

I know people who voted remain who have no internet access.

This was a conversation I heard last year.
"You need a mobile phone in case your car breaks down. Why not get your husband to give you his as his eyesight is so bad he cannot use it anymore?"
Wife: "Oh no he would not let me have his phone".
Husband "No, she is not having my phone"

The change is a rip off as most people are going to be left with points that will be of no value.

We're all going to lose out a small amount, but it should be no more than £5 equivalent.

Let's see how the new "digital coupons" shape up. They could (and occasionally did) issue extra coupons under the existing loyalty scheme too, of course.

Their website is a mess,..
agreed. it says my More card number is not recognised. i've logged in using my email address and so have 'an account' but it says i have no points. if i use the card at the till it works fine and the points are shown on the receipt.

agreed. it's tight of them. as they're phasing out the scheme they could have just issued a one-off voucher for the value of your points to ensure that noone misses out.

I wonder whether they will get sufficient grief on MSE and FB that there is a change of mind.

i wouldn't be surprised. no grocer in this competitive market wants negative coverage, and it would be easy for them to look after customers more generously.

eventually managed to sync my card with the app..
only have 2760 points, so would need to spend £466 between now & 9th May to bag £5. that's not going to happen. perhaps we can all merge our points onto Blyth or Sarah or someone's account so that at least one of us benefits :think:

I will love your pts. All those £5 vouchers would help Meadow Green Dog Rescue. A small charity that is attached to a kennels business. Our main supermarket is Tesco but did some top up shopping at Morrisons and when I got to £5 the voucher was passed on to them. I am far too far away from 5,000 pts and even doing all our shopping there will not get me another voucher. It would be a case of so far but so near.
