Found 7th Nov 2013
Have some marks on my walls. Don't want to redecorate. Colour match may not be perfect, but that's ok. Just need a cheap small pot of magnolia paint. Tester won't do though, way to small.

sometimes poundland or 99pstores stock small pots of paint,

also B&Q give away damaged pots that need disposal

but how will you match up the shades?

Before painting the marks, how about using magic erasers by doktor power or jml. Around £5 for a large box of 6. Sometimes aldi do their own brand. They take most marks of walls, radiators, paintwork etc. then you haven't got to worry about the paint colour matching.
3 pots delivered for £1 is available from dulux website. There are 30mls in each pot
I also got 5litres from b&m for 4.99 recently as my wall got covered in hummus. Make sure you know whether you want matt or silk emulsion
the 3 tester pot deal is good but excluded white and magnolia unfortunately.

good idea about the magic erasers. I have one in the garage i think, but in this case I'm not so sure it will work...but I will give it a try just in case!

I dont know for sure if it is matt or silk, but i guessed matt and bought the cheapest one in B&Q which was 8.99 or something. That's cheaper than Wikes, Homebase and Wilkinson's. Just hope it matches fairly closely.
btw, wanted to come back and let you know the answer.

B&Q do a cheap, good sized pot.
BUT I then found that ASDA do a pot for a fiver, same sort of size. I bought their garden fence paint earlier this year and it was excellent. I am going to take the pot back to B&Q and buy the pot from ASDA, along with a white pot (also a fiver) and that way I can mix to get a very close match on the paint colour on my walls.
