Taken the Plunge...

Well after a lot of humming (in a Pooh like fashion) I have finally bought 80 more shares and am once again a member of the Shareholders Club.

I couldn't bear the thought of walking past Salon Mickey.....plus I had a couple of hundred pounds that I would've otherwise just frittered away.This way I still kinda have the money...plus Salon Mickey too!

Yipeeeeeeeee!

Hurrah! Well done . I agree with you I couldn't spend an entire holiday walking past that little door

PS Halifax are doing their reduced international trade offer again on April 30th for anyone wishing to top up only £3.95 per international trade...it is almost a monthly offer now.

Great news, zinderella.

And thanks for the Halifax tip, Kaye, I really must make my mind up whether I'm going to top up or not.

Great news, I'm still trying to decided although I'm leaning more to the buying. I might by some on Tuesday and then buy the rest later

I've been tracking the share prices for a while and they seem to be resonable ish at the moment, but not as cheap as when I bought my first 20 (of course!!!!)

I'm just hoping my card comes before I go..... for those of you who have been without a card, did you just print off the email that confirms you are a shareholder, or did you ask for a more official letter to be sent to you?

I've also been watching the share price and exchange rate so may buy tuesday if it seems a reasonable combination.
Thanks for the info about the Halifax fee Kaye - my 20 shares are with them so i probably do get the emails about dealing shares but haven't noticed this one.
I would rather stay a shareholder than go the AP route for discount as I know I won't use an AP enough and seeing it in my purse will make me feel

I just transferred some money to Halifax yesterday ready to take advantage of the dealing offer on Tuesday. Visiting Salon Mickey has become part of our holidays now and I don't want to give it up!

We have another 18 months left, but I think we're tranfering my Pirate's shares to mine to give us 40. So only another 60 to buy **sigh**. I'm still a bit angry over the changes, especially as we have to buy 6 AP's in a months time - and need two shareholder cards to get into Salon Mickey. This is the last time we can do it!

you can phone the shareholders office if you don't get your card in time, and they can email you a temporary letter, confirming your entitlement to the shareholders discounts and advantages.

Apparently the people who have 20 shares may still remain in the Shareholder's club after all, but with a different level of benefits to those owning 100 shares. If I had to guess I'd say you'd need to be a 100 share level member to get into Salon Mickey and the old level 20 share members will get a certain level of discounts. Time will tell.
