I am also back in the shareholders club
Just bought 81 shares with a little windfall that I wasn't expecting. Thanks people who have posted here and I do hope the board do something for the DLP fans who aren't able to commit to up their shareholding at the moment. I appreciate that some people have abused the system but now the scale of it is known it seems harsh to punish long term investors rather than tackle the misbehaviour.

Yay! You are nearly there! It's well worth waiting. I feel the price is quite good, and may go up more once Ratatouille ride is opened and the profits start rolling in! I'd rather be buying this year than next.

Bought our extra shares today :)

Bought the 80 to top it up today don't need to renew for a year but we've been keeping an eye and hubby thought it was a good time as commission only £3.95 today too

Happy days! Love that we'll still be part of the magic and although it will take a while to make back our money now through discounts and trips to salon mickey we love having them and owning a lightbulb!

Does anyone know if you can transfer name on them?? They are in husbands name so therefore card is in his name too but we want it in my name ideally...

the shareholder club have responded to my emails pretty quick, I suggest you ask them the best way forward.

Oh great news and I totally agree regarding the 20 shares holders, I expect quite a few people have sold them though which is a shame

I was going to buy my extra shares today but completely forgot and now the markets are shut Oh well, there's bound to be another cheap dealing offer soon and hopefully the share price won't go up to much in the meantime!

I couldnt buy today as well plus we are taking our car for a repair tomorrow so try to save on other things in the mean time... so let hope for a good price on share next time Halifax got this offer.... they have them now nearly every months... and congrats to those who have now 100 shares and dont have to worry abut renewing...

Yes, it's at Halifax you do it, not with the shareholders club. You'll need to open a Halifax sharedealing account in your name then he needs to complete this form. Once the shares are showing in your name just apply to join the shareholders club in your name. You will need to load some money up with a debit card when you open the account (think it's £100) but once it's all up and running you can withdraw it.

I've been saving a bit here and there ever since we heard the news about the increase to 100 shares so bought some more yesterday and when DH transfers his over to me I'll have enough. We've talked about it and to be honest we don't really need to both be members as we always go together and in the unlikely event one of us were to visit on our own it would probably be me rather than him.

I also bought some more for DD, we'd given her 25 for her 18th birthday and as yesterday was her 21st it seemed 'meant to be'! She still needs another 25 but she's got Christmas and another birthday before her membership expires.

I wasn't particularly happy with the rate - would have preferred nearer 4 euros a share but at least it was under 5 euros which is what I've been waiting for and as my membership is expiring soon I decided not to risk waiting any longer ..... and I'm certainly no longer going to check the price every time I log on!

Thank you ware bears its not due for renewal till next summer so plenty time to get it done we were just chatting and I said I might take kids with my mum nearer Xmas as hubby works offshore so might not be a home (I'm hoping for a wee flash sale deal) anyway I was saying how I can't use card as its in his name so we should swap it to me... My mum has a card though (well she will once she buys another 80 and renews) that's great that it can be done though thanks for the info again
