Think before you sign
Don’t fritter away your hard-earned money on unwanted subscriptions

It’s National Consumer Week and this year’s theme is “Before You Sign.”

Citizens Advice research revealed this week that in just three months consumers spent an average of £160 on unwanted subscriptions, including gym memberships, television and online streaming services. The consumer organisation also found that between June and August 2017, 9 out of 10 people were initially refused by companies when cancellation of an unwanted subscription was requested.

So what are your rights and the best ways to deal with these subscriptions? Helen Dewdney, The Complaining Cow – consumer spokesperson and author of How to Complain: The Essential Consumer Guide to Getting Refunds, Redress and Results! – gives us her top 10 tips.

1) Be aware of the “free” and very cheap trials of subscriptions. Most, if not all, will ask for payment information when you sign up. Set yourself a reminder to cancel a day before the first payment is due.

2) Check the cancellation rights before signing up to anything but be aware that you may still be able to challenge these in certain circumstances.

3) Under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, you are entitled to a 14 day “cooling off” period, so if you have signed up to something off premises (e.g. online)you can cancel with no penalty.

4) Under the Consumer Rights Act 2015, consumers are protected from unfair contracts. So, for example, if a company says that you must give 6 months’ notice to cancel a subscription, that would be unfair.

5) The Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2014 state that companies must provide accurate and sufficient information for consumers to make a purchasing decision. For a practice to be unfair under these rules, they must harm, or be likely to harm, the economic interests of the average consumer. For example, when a shopper makes a purchasing decision he or she would not have made had he or she been given accurate information.

6) If you are going to sign up to a subscription, try and use Direct Debit where possible. With Direct Debit, a company cannot change the regular payment amount. Using a Direct Debit or credit card is known as a Continuous Payment Authority which can be of varying amounts which can be changed without your consent.

7) When you cancel with the company, also inform your bank to ensure that the subscription payment is cancelled. You will then also be covered by the Direct Debit Guarantee, which ensures a full and immediate refund of the amount paid from your bank or building society if a mistake is made.

8) Check that the site is genuine. The website address should begin with “https”, have a padlock symbol, a full correspondence address (not a PO box number) and any trade logos should be genuine. Also, search the Internet for reviews and check for warning signs like lots of grammatical errors or a domain name that uses a well-known brand/product but isn’t the official website or ends in .net or .org as these are rarely used for online shopping sites. You can also check who registered the domain via the whois.com website.

9) If you want to cancel, do so quickly and in writing so you have evidence. If you are prepared to discuss the matter because you want to haggle for example, telephone helpline numbers cannot cost the consumer more than the basic rate, so no 084 and 087 numbers. If companies do use these then they are in breach of the The Consumer Contract (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 and Ofcom regulations.

10) When writing to cancel, provide all details of the policy/memberships etc., dates of subscriptions and request that the cancellation is made with immediate effect. Name the laws above and describe how the company is in breach, if relevant.

Wigan Warriors to kick off the season with prestigious extended Sealy sponsorship deal

Sealy UK become an Official Kit Sponsor and Major Partner of the Wigan Warriors
Extended sponsorship continues to underpin Sealy UK’s ‘World of Sport’ campaign
Exciting programme of activities scheduled throughout the year

Sealy UK is today announcing a major new sponsorship deal with rugby league club, Wigan Warriors, that will see the bed manufacturer become one the club’s official 2018 kit sponsor’s and an Official Major Club Partner.

Following a hugely successful first year of sponsorship, which kicked off in January 2017, Sealy is now set to extend the partnership, in doing so significantly building its profile in the region and nationally.

First appearing on the famous Cherry and White kit when Wigan defeated Warrington at Old Trafford to become the 2016 Super League Champions, the iconic Sealy logo will appear on the playing shorts of all Wigan Warriors Representative teams including the Men’s Super League Team, Wigan Under-19s, Wigan Under-16s and for the first time in 2018, the Wigan Women’s Super League Team.

Continuing the role as the team’s official sleep partner, the bed manufacturer will continue to work closely with the players to ensure all their sleep needs are attended to, while strengthening its working relationship with the club, its partners and fans by delivering an exciting engagement programme of match day activations.

Sealy will also deliver a number of creative brand activations throughout the year, including supporting the players with innovative sleep aids, as they embark on their tour of Australia in the New Year.

The new deal underlines Sealy’s commitment to its ongoing ‘World of Sport’ campaign, which recognises the link between good quality sleep, and sporting excellence. With a sizeable fan base in Cumbria – the location of Sealy’s head office – and a team of players that place huge emphasis on rest and recovery ahead of all matches, Wigan Warriors continues to be an obvious choice for the leading bed brand.

Highlights from the first year of sponsorship, include the provision of a ‘recovery’ bed in the club’s training ground, as well as supplying all players with top-of-the-range Sealy beds to assist with rest and recuperation – something that was particularly crucial in the case of players John Bateman and Sam Tomkins who credited quality sleep alongside intensive physio for their speedy recoveries.

It was not only the players who benefited from partnering Sealy last year, Wigan’s loyal fans were surprised with an April Fool’s Day training video, as well as a hugely successful ‘comfiest seat in the house’ competition, which saw two fans win the chance to watch a Super League clash from the comfort of a king-sized Sealy bed, complete with match survival kit.

Sealy’s marketing controller, Holly Housby, said: “After a hugely successful first year we’re delighted to be extending our partnership with such a successful and charismatic club for a second year.

“Our philosophy of helping people achieve a good night’s sleep is shared with the players and management, who all understand and have seen first-hand the value and major impact a restful night’s sleep can have on both the body and mind. We’re excited about building on last year’s successes and are very much looking forward to rolling-out a series of planned activities which will further support the players and engage with the club’s vast fan-base.

Sealy wish the team the best of luck for the coming season and are proud to be helping the players to achieve their full potential.”

Kris Radlinski, Executive Director at Wigan Warriors, said: “With rest and recovery being a critical part of high-performance, the partnership with Sealy has been invaluable this season following an unprecedented number of injuries. The earlier than expected return of Sam Tomkins and John Bateman, who were crucial contributors to our Challenge Cup run to Wembley, is an example of the positive impact our relationship with Sealy has had on our programme. We are thrilled to not only continue our relationship with Sealy, but to have them even further engaged with the Club and our fans, which I have no doubt will continue for many years to come.”

Dan Burton, Commercial Sales Manager at Wigan Warriors, added: “From the outset, there was a clear alignment between our respective philosophies, values and market approach which have become only more evident as our relationship has grown. With some exciting activities and ground-breaking innovations planned as part of our 2018 campaign, we are delighted to have Sealy on board as Major Club Partners and look forward to building on what is already a fantastic relationship with the Worlds Number 1 bed brand”.

Sealy’s World of Sport campaign aims to make the connection between an outstanding night’s sleep and sporting excellence. To date, it has worked with a wide range of sporting legends from David Haye to Linford Christie, Frank Bruno and Burnley FC.

This year, National Express is teaming up with student affinity network UNiDAYS, to offer hundreds of its student members free coach travel home for the holidays. Research reveals that one in six can’t afford to make the journey home and nearly half the student population (41%) feel they’re under financial pressure at this time of year.

Polling 1,200 students from its network, UNiDAYS also revealed that 44% of students are having to make alternative financial arrangements to pay for the trip, including almost one in ten (9%) of students using their overdraft or credit card to pay for travel, whilst a whopping 42% are calling on the ‘Bank of Mum and Dad’ to cover the cost. 18% admitted they didn’t know how they will finance getting home.

But help is at hand! To claim the free tickets, students simply need to visit www.myunidays.com, find the tile that links through to the give – away and register their details to be in with a chance. Those lucky enough to receive tickets will be notified on 4th December with a code to redeem on the National Express website. Those that enter and are unsuccessful will receive an exclusive UNiDAYS code for

extra discount on their tickets home with National Express as a Christmas bonus so everyone’s a winner.

Mai Fenton, EMEA Marketing Director at UNiDAYS said “Money is always top of the list of concerns for our students. However, at the end of term with loans running out, and Christmas around the corner,

we know that thousands of students across the UK will be worried about how they will afford to get home for the holidays to see their friends and family.

We’re delighted to be able to sprinkle some festive cheer this year by teaming up with National Express to offer hundreds of hard-working students the opportunity to get home in style and in comfort – for free.”

National Express Coach Managing Director Chris Hardy said “We know students are very cost conscious so we’re happy to work with UNiDAYS to help get them home and back with their families at this special time of the year.

WORLD RUGBY LEAGUE REBELS POSE THE QUESTIONS

The current growth strategies of international Rugby League have been called into question by the formation of a rival, fledgling global federation dedicated to promoting debate about the future of the 13-a-side code.

Whilst the 14 nation Rugby League World Cup approaches its finale, the breakaway World Rugby League, founded in 2016 by representatives of the sport from Greece, Italy and Pakistan as well as several ‘observer’ nations, recently presented its credentials to the Switzerland-based Sport Accord organization attached to the GAISF (Global Association of International Sport Federations).

Recently appointed WRL President and head of Rugby League in Greece Tasos Pantazidis commented: “The globalization of Rugby League, has always been one of the most crucial institutional issues about our great sport and it comes into sharp focus during a World Cup.

“New and emerging nations taking up the sport are increasingly calling for serious steps forward in the recognition of Rugby League from International Organizations like SportAccord and the International Olympic Committee. The WRL is a platform for that debate.

“A growing number of national Rugby League governing bodies, fully recognised by their own individual national sporting authorities, have opted to align themselves with the WRL due to our approach to the development and growth of the sport.

“We were invited by SportAccord for talks about the recognition procedure and the feedback so far has been outstanding. Unfortunately no such dialogue is taking place with the established international Rugby League body (IRL) and this will affect the integrity of our sport going forward,” added Tasos, one of three key players on the WRL board together with Secretary General Pierluigi Gentile from Italy and Vice President Ikram Butt, the first Muslim to play international Rugby League for England as well as being a Pakistan rugby union international.

Tasos went on: “Rugby League deserves to be recognized and a new vision about the future of the sport is now clear.

“The first key factor is the rivalry issue. We believe Rugby League representatives have to find common ground with rugby union. We fully understand the controversial nature of this strategy but it makes complete sense on so many levels. It is the ‘elephant in the room’ that stands in the way of real growth and development of Rugby League.

“We cannot turn back the clock to the 1890s. We must deal with the current context and many of our sport’s governing bodies are finding barriers in their way due to existing cultural allegiances adopted by our established international governing body.

“The second big issue is that we need to understand that the current approach of putting some names and flags on the map is not the way forward. This is a short sighted and shallow platform for growth that is alienating many within our sport.

“SportAccord and the GAISF calls for national governing bodies (NGBs) to be recognized by their own national Olympic Committees.

“There are numerous cases where groups of people claim that they have Federations or Associations but in practice, they are not recognized by anyone.

“In these cases people have to understand that recognition by the National Highest Sporting Authorities is the most important issue. In order to be recognized Rugby League must have 40 recognized NGBs and we all know that it hasn’t,” added Tasos.

Ikram Butt, founder of the British Asian Rugby Association (BARA) and a founding member of Pakistan Rugby League commented: “This is all about laying the foundations for the growth of international Rugby League by building sustainable partnerships that facilitate increased participation.

“The WRL is categorically not about wrestling away sovereignty of the game but doing what is in its best interests based on the growing number of national associations who are finding that the current approach is simply not fit for purpose.

“The World Cup showcases the very best that the game has to offer but I want to see it develop and grow on a much more stable footing.

“A recent match held at the world famous Jinnah Stadium in Islamabad between Pakistan and Italy attracted over 5,000 and demonstrated the bridges that can be built. I’ve always been about building bridges,” added Ikram who is working on a rematch as well as planning for a ‘rebel’ World Cup 9s involving WRL member and observer nations.

Tasos summed up “In conclusion the WRL realize that co-operation and the strengthening of the domestic game are the most important factors in the future of our sport.

“We must follow the examples set by the most popular sports internationally and copy their practices of equality, fairness, justice and expansion. Rugby League cannot be allowed to exist in sporting isolation, cut off from valuable resources and organisations.

“We need the debate to happen with all parties and believe the WRL is a good vehicle to achieve that.”

The Enevu CUBE is an amazing little multi-use light that shines brighter than you’d expect from its size.

The CUBE is powerful enough to light up an entire room yet small enough to fit in any pocket. It has multiple color settings which make them great to fit any theme. There is three levels of white brightness that can be used for anything from handheld lights in the outdoors to working on home projects!

I personally have used them on my bike at night. My dad loves bringing the CUBE on his boat rides in case he needs a light to check the engine or look for any skis underneath in storage. I have used my CUBE for a makeup light as well, reading lights and more!

The CUBE has a setting that runs through every color in the rainbow and when you find one you like you can set that color. The CUBE has a hidden “hook” so it can be carried or hung upside down from a pergola or outdoor strings, or if you’re like me and have a dog it’s great to see them at night!

A lot of people use them as candle replacements or to add mood lighting to a room.

Hanga

Hanga really does change the way you hang and care for your clothes. Designed by a man, for men (and even women!) No more shoulder nipples – no more cheap wire hangers! The Hanga is also my lazy girl hack because I can easily grab my clothes or put them on the hanger without it having to leave the rod.

I have packed mine before in my luggage when I travel that way I can hang a nice sports jacket or dress and not worry about the cheap hotel hangers. Let’s face it, we want it to sustain our clothing’s wear.

It’s easy to take clothing off (never leaving the rod) and easy to glide clothes on to the Hanga AKA great for sports jackets, nice dresses etc.
Great thing about Hanga, is that it has history! A former football star created this and designed it because he constantly heard about guys in the locker room having their jerseys look awkward or their sports jackets with the “shoulder nipples”.

 

www.theeducationaltourist.com is about traveling with the family and making it educational.

As a former educator I know how important it is to keep the kids busy and occupied on a long journey to keep everyone happy. In addition to keeping the kids occupied, teaching them about a destination gets them ready to learn more about the trip and keeps them engaged. No more whining!!

I have written 13 destination specific travel guide books to be used with elementary school aged kids who are traveling or just want to learn about a destination. These ebooks are full of fun and interesting information and fun activities. Great for traveling families, homeschoolers, and daydreamers!

COLD & BLAC: THE UK’S FIRST COFFEE LIQUEUR MADE USING PIONEERING FOUR STEP COLD BREW PROCESS

Produced in a container in Dalston Junction, London in what could be the smallest distillery in the world

Tem Mellese has been perfecting a Sugar-Free, botanically infused coffee spirit like nothing on the market. Cold & Blac is the UK’s first coffee liqueur made using a pioneering four step cold brew process. See further information HERE. Images HERE.

Playing on the theme of “Cocktail Liberation” Tem Mellese takes coffee and drinking to an imaginative space by blending an array of botanicals, wild berries, cacao, speciality Ethiopian coffee beans and organic, natural sweeteners. This is a unique liqueur that accurately presents the real dynamic behind the authentic coffee flavour.

Cold & Blac is without the influence of traditional industrial additives or any processed cane sugar: two key production ingredients that actually mask and degrade authentic flavours. With this the true essence and versatility of speciality coffee; its layers, notes, hints and suggestions. Great coffee, if anything, is a subterranean Romance. Full of hidden implied suggestions and enveloped in endlessly captivating darkness.

Caffeine and coffee cannot effectively be extracted using alcohol as there is a complete molecular degradation due to a process called oxidisation.
