I went into Pret today and my Pain au Raisin now costs £2.10 up from £1.85 a week ago. They saw you coming. PS - how much?! 0 Vote up! Terrible how they're Raisin the prices. I feel your Pain. 0 Vote up! Dog insurance. Last years premium £62.06/mo. This year £101.79/mo. The thieving, gouging, dirty bastards 0 Vote up! Got to renew the car insurance soon. Excited to see what my current insurer offers post-the new FCA rules and given the annual drop in the car’s value versus how much the thieving bastards blame inflation to hike it 30% and force me to hit the comparison sites again. 0 Vote up! Marston golden ales collection: pre Christmas £8. Now £9.00 bastards 0 Vote up! Wilson kids tennis racket. 2019: £24. 2022: £32. 0 Vote up! Presumably dog insurance goes up each year as dog gets older anyway? 0 Vote up! Yes but not by 60%! If it carried on at that r8 I'll be paying 20k a year if he gets to 12. No claims this last year. Or indeed any claims with this insurer. aunts 0 Vote up! £100 a month?!!! Is he some sort of bomb disposal dog? 0 Vote up! what chuffey said. Have just been through the process with my house insurance. Goodbye, AA. 0 Vote up! Buzz, did you shop around for a new policy? That’s insane. 0 Vote up! 20k a year is still cheaper than a new dog though 0 Vote up! Chuffy do you bother with the comparison sites? I just phone up and say I've been online and found someone who'll insure my car for £5 and magically they find a bunch of discounts. That's why I take the chance on Saildog generally only needing her annual vaccinations which are rather less than a month's premium at that rate. 0 Vote up! I am going to shop around Dusters. This is with bought by many who haven't previously had the same sort of awful re like More Than who are notorious for hiking lifetime policy premiums to "fook off" levels. and heh @ bomb disposal dog. 0 Vote up! *awful reputation 0 Vote up! insure dog for 1st 18 months, then self insure 0 Vote up! wouldn't it be cheaper just to have the dog put down or whatever they call it? 0 Vote up! I'd self insure if I hadn't previously had the pleasure of going to Fitzpatrick Referrals. Jayzus. Plus I want the public liability insurance. 0 Vote up! Looks like 5p on everything in Greggs, definitely sausage rolls and belgian buns 0 Vote up! double [email protected] disposal dog 0 Vote up! I do use comparios sites, sails although not slavishly and if I instantly get a better quote I tend to just move rather than waste time discussing with my current provider. So easy to move these days that that is often quicker. 0 Vote up! i thought the thing with dogs is they age quick, so premia climb quickly agreed on only insuring 4 the first couple of years 0 Vote up! Coffee from the supermarket is up about 15%. Though bizarrely if you use the scan app they let you have it at a third off. 0 Vote up! I trod in some dog shit in Heathrow once. Turned out the sniffer dog had actually found a bomb. 0 Vote up! My car hire in US went down nearly a grand. Had to keep canceling it and rebooking to get best price. 0 Vote up! My energy bill. Car hire from Faro airport. Any kind of food, supermarket or restaurant. 0 Vote up! M&S Chicken Kiev is now nearly a fiver. That might be down to the Russian/Ukraine crisis though. 0 Vote up! The cost of NQ solicitors. They almost think they are worth £160k now. Some of our "partners" don't even make that lol! 0 Vote up! Space Raiders. Down from 12 then 10 and now 6 for £1. 0 Vote up! Octoman deserves a heh 0 Vote up! In the last few months at supermarket not so much the big increases for food (I felt) were the first few months of Covid I really noticed things being more expensive and the fake slash real petrol shortages where they jacked the price up about 20p and have only put it back down 5p if that. 0 Vote up! And on the m&s Kiev point - has anyone ever walked out of m&s foodhall without spending £30+? I go in for bread and milk and come out having spent £30 on about 6 items it’s like a mandatory minimum spend. 0 Vote up! YES! 0 Vote up! Agreed, and they've stopped doing those "£5 off the next time you spend £50" till receipts, because most of the time, unless you're just buying bread and milk, every one is spending £50 already. 0 Vote up! Risky told me the price of nieces are up 0 Vote up! Buzz's dog costs more to insure than my house, almost double, in fact. And my street used to be an actual river. 0 Vote up! lol at noticing the price of a pain au raisin … cheap house insurance is a mixed blessing tbh; when cellars in our street flooded we had a team of two guys for 2 days cleaning everything in ours - people with cheap and cheerful policies got one guy for a morning 6 weeks later 0 Vote up! It was more a comment on the cost of insuring Buzz's pooch than my insurance being particularly cheap. My house is wooden and built on sticks, which may come into it. 0 Vote up! Petrol, pushing 150p a litre. Ouch. 0 Vote up! Heh, there was a piece on the radio this morning about it hitting A$1.80/L. People don't know how lucky they are to be able to pollute with impunity here. 0 Vote up! Refresh Back to board Join the discussion Login Register 0 Vote up!
