It's in the android pay app not the Google play app

GeorgeCampbell

Code worked for me. You find the area to enter code in the settings menu

andrew.millard

Right, I have used one of these codes recently but my one was GET10. This doesn’t work because it’s account specific. It isn’t only for users who dont often use android pay to encourage them to use it more. If you’re a frequent user, it won’t work

frazered

got it, opened up my google pay and it is already there as a promo card. did not have to put the code in. existing user, use it perhaps once a month.

I've used the free coke and £3/£5 vouchers ok on self service. There's a button that says something like 'mobile promotion' which lets you enter the code. The button shows while you're scanning, not when you go to pay.

matwalaboy

No, the self service won't accept the codes - when I entered it didn't work and the shop manager suggested to use the normal counters where they had to enter the codes manually 1 by 1 on all 52 of them - was painful and embarrassing - but hey I cant complain, thats the way they set it up so be it, hope that helps

tgbyhn10

were you able.to use the self.service tills, if so would you let me know what option you selected. thanks

matwalaboy

Picked up my 52 bottles of free coke from the Westfield shop Saturday - it surely got a bit embarrassing as they couldn't quite fathom for a while what I was upto :D

matwalaboy

They are for store use only - and the thing which I found out about them much to my disappointment is that they are not gift-cards (coz then you can use them just like normal cash to buy anything) but are rather promotional codes - so just like the latter there are tonnes of exclusions and you can't stack them. You can just about use them on full price items and use them one per transaction - the best way to use them really then is to find stuff worth £3 or £5 depending on the value of the promo code you were planning on using. Its pretty painful to use these really - the ones on the HSBC tap from House Of Fraser or the Costa ones or the ones from Currys on the other hand are all true GC's so can used whichever way you deem fit. Hope this helps....

On your device, make sure you have NFC setting turned on for it to work!

Thanks just used mine this afternoon, by default they will assume it is a loyalty card and it will give some error message like 'not a valid costa membership card', I had to specifically tell them to select 'egift' or something similar to that and rescan it for it to work. Yes, last day to redeem is today.

Deviant.

"PRIZES/GIFTS MUST BE CLAIMED BEFORE 23:59 (GMT) ON 15 JANUARY 2017" Full terms and conditions (they've removed them from their web site, so here's Google's cached copy).

dmn001

Just tried using £3 card today and they said it was expired/invalid. I ended up paying with cash. Very poor and frustrating experience, as I had to wait 15 minutes in queue and another 15 minutes to get my coffee as they were so busy they forgot about my order. Does anyone know the expiry date? edit: Expiry date is apparently 1 year? Not 100% sure. The code scanned okay made beeping sound, tried scanning it 4 times, beeped each time, so I think it was most likely operator error. Why aren't the staff trained to know about this promotion and how to redeem the codes?!

cleudo

This worked for me - thanks very much (back to the Co-op for me now) Shame it doesn't pick up on the 5 transactions I already made today trying to get it to work...

Seen this advertised on twitter. To be honest, thought it would've been click bait. Voted hot. But you'll still be paying through the nose even at BOGOF.

Funny you say that .. I always thought that most Phones did/done a 'System Reboot' after any/all System Software Updates/fresh Installations? (the 1 or 2 Phones i've done 'similar' with in the past have done that anyway ..... ) :-)

I believe the 'Back-Up' process ship has well and truly sailed mannnnyyyyyyyy moons ago IF they've already done their 'Upgrade'? (which from where i'm standing, kinda well appears to be the case already?), so ..... Future back-up with what they've accumilated since that back-up however is a whole different 'animal' still ..... hahahahahaha. :-)

LOL, actually I was ripping the pee out of the fact that you did not need to tell us (brag) abount your phone, you COULD have simply said that there are two versions for low and high end phones. Instead you took the opportunity to tell us of your greatness.... a typical trait of an iPhone owner, which BTW, I'm not, I have an Android phone...... obviously not as good as yours as I clearly don't earn as much as you (or is it that I dont feel the need to compensate for my small manhood with a fancy phone that will be sent to India in a year when the next "best thing" arrives ;)).

To fix the audio level out try "Volume+" or if you are rooted (which took me around 5 minutes the other day) you can install "VooDoo Louder" If that isn't enough I highly recommend the Fiio E5 portable amp which costs around £14 Such a gimmick, it's just an EQ preset if it works at all :P

if you have a samsung, hopefully all of them have a built in version of swype as my cousin has a GS2 and it has a lighting fast swype type thing on it. its so fast you dont need to get any texting apps. my xperia play also has a built in swype thing but its really not as ressponsive and is slower.

Brilliant app,Thanks.

Swype is free and better :)

Michealtbh

Meh, I bought this a while ago and found it not very accurate at all. It's infuriating to use. Swype is completely free and much, much better

stressedman

if there is a free trial make sure you trial it! I have and it didnt really work for me. I'm too used to nokia symbian T9 its taking ages to adapt to android...! I've tried this: slide it keyboard, thumb keyboard, smart keyboard, itap keyboard, and the default, even the chinese default keyboard which gives you the phone pad! currently using swiftkey x - an older version which is ugly but when you adapt it does SEEM faster. thumb keyboard seems fastest to me, but a few odd keys ruins it.

I tried the trial of this and found it great. Once the trial expired I got the Swype beta (as I assumed they'd be very similar, and expected Swype to be better than SlideIT TBH) Having used Swype for a day I'll certainly be going back to SlideIT. I much prefer the interface and style. If you're unsure, get both this AND Swype and make your own mind up!

Woodzta

I went from Swype, to this SlideIT, back to Swype, then to TouchPal, and stayed on TouchPal ever since. :)

Tdrtnlz

I prefer this over swype but I think swiftkey is better than them both

ShaunnyBwoy

Got it for 10p during the sales. It's not as good as Swype IMO, but it does work on tablet, and Swype doesn't.

Sunnysider

Hot from me though I already have it. I much prefer it to swype. The default settings 'out of the box' aren't the best if you ask me. With a little customisation however its great. if those were changed to the defaults i think more would agree

Titanium Backup's incredibly powerful and really easy to use, highly recommended! Juicedefender's good although I tend to use Tasker for automation and a few toggles to manually do things as JD tended to annoy me if it had turned something off and I wanted it back on.

twe

TitaniumBackup didn't work for me a few months back so thats why I didn't continue using it but probably ok now.....

twe

It has options to backup: apps, photos, contacts, call logs, bookmarks, sms, mms, system settings, android home, alarms, dictionary, calendar, music playlist.... And compress the apps/photos to take up less space..... You can schedule it to back it up and in the mytoolbox options you can freeze, unfreeze apps and wipe cache and data..... Thanks 7percent, might try that out and see how it is as my battery life has halved since I have moved from gsm only to wcdma/gsm since I now have unlimited internet data......

7percent

If network activity is killing your battery try green power. It will switch off Network connections for x amount of time automatically. i.e. my network is on for 5 mins every half hour to check for messages and then it will switch off again.

TehJumpingJawa

Titanium Backup. Does a lot more than just backup. Free edition does everything most ppl need, pro version does even more. Needs root though. If you do go for the pro version, it's cheaper to buy it direct from the developer in $ via paypal than buying in £ from android market.
