Co-Operative Motor Insurance Review (Oh dear…)

by Affiliate Pro on Jun.25, 2010, under General, Other

After over 5 years of personal use of their services and my parents using Co-Operative Motor Insurance for over 30 years it would be fair to say we have been happy with the service they have provided us. However over the last few months our opinions have changed slightly…

Cost of insurance

Expensive now, more than 40% higher that other leading companies.
Good service if you have accident refer to dad
Don’t value custimers, no price matches no negiotations. Offer at the time only available to new customers (WTF?)

No access to update my own address on my own account?!

I rang up the other day and apparently I was not giving enough correct information about myself and therefore I could not access my account. So I rang straight back to get hold of a different person who let me gain information using the same details I gave the first time. I questioned what the original problem was and they told me I didn’t own the car I was saying I did…

I own a Ford Focus? No CIS, I have never owned a Focus…

Well apparently I now drive a ford focus and that is why I struggled getting access to my own account. When I enquired further they appologised and said it was “user error” on there behalf. So dispite the security checks for me not being able to access my own account, they were able to change my car to someone elses without a problem because the account numbers were similar. I recommend using a system that doesnt require call centre staff re-entering account codes manually in future.

CIS you have lost my custom.

Eurovision 2010 – UK come last in the final! Awesome!

by Affiliate Pro on May.29, 2010, under Affiliate Schemes, General

Well well, we came last. Then again our song did kinda suck. I loved Moldova, France and Greece and unfortunately none of them won.

Germany stole the win with a 19 year old girl, Lena. She was OK but I soon went off her once she started talking.

Come on United Kindgom lets get a decent song for 2011!!

The Eurovision 2010 CD is now available from amazon or available on download

Film review: In The Electric Mist 2009 (Tommy Lee Jones, John Goodman, Peter Sarsgaard, Kelly MacDonald)

by Affiliate Pro on Mar.17, 2010, under Movies / Films

Tommy Lee Jones

I noticed Tommy Lee Jones was in this film and as a follower of his work though it was only right to watch it and then give it a review for you to read.

The film started of in a fairly steady manner with a fairly moody and misty Louisiana atmosphere. The good camera work helps create a good atmosphere for this thriller and although not the best film ever it’s definitely worth buying. 7/10 overall.

If you like the sound of the film you get get a copy from Amazon here on DVD or Blu-ray here.

Synopsis:

Academy Award winner Tommy Lee Jones leads an all-star cast in this psychological thriller based on the bestselling novel by James Lee Burke.
While on an investigation into a series of grisly murders, veteran detective Dave Robicheaux (Jones) navigates his way through the Louisiana bayou and the dark, sultry world of New Orleans mobster “Baby Feet” Balboni (John Goodman). Layers of corruption and long-dead secrets reawaken grudges and a lethal alliance A tangled web of killings, past and present, converges in a shocking showdown with stakes that become deeply personal to Robicheaux and his family. Featuring music from five-time GRAMMY Award-winner Buddy Guy, this film takes you deep into Cajun country’s hidden worlds. –© Image Entertainment

Gusto’s (Takeaway Service) Restaurant Review – Didsbury, Manchester

by Affiliate Pro on Mar.17, 2010, under Restaurants, Takeaways

Gusto’s Takeaway Service Review

I noticed Gustos promotional material landing through the door for 40% off their takeaway collection menu and thought it would be an ideal opportunity to sample their food, service and do another Didsbury review.

We located the Gusto website and selected a large American style pizza – “The Griffin”. We went to pay online to discover there was a further 10% discount for ordering online, you can’t complain at that. A phone call arrived about 5 minutes later to confirm the order by a very polite gentleman called Charlie and told it would be ready in about 20 minutes for collection. I arrived at the restaurant and they were polite and very prompt at dealing with me. It cost under £6 which is fantastic and the pizza really was to restaurant standards and was perfectly cooked.

Conclusion
I would highly recommend the takeaway service and could not of asked for better service.

Food: 4/5
Price: 4/5
Service: 5/5

Topkapi take away – Turkish Cuisine in Didsbury, Manchester

by Affiliate Pro on Feb.09, 2010, under Takeaways

After walking around Didsbury Village looking for somewhere to get some food and being told that the Gourmet Burger Kitchen had run out of lamb and beef (WTF?!?!) we ended up going for a fast option. Topkapi, situated on Didsbury high street, although not that amazing to look at from the roadside pleasantly suprised us.

We went for a large “Hot n’ Spicy” pizza and chips. Expecting very little from it we tucked in. I think it is fair to say it’s the nicest take away pizza I’ve had in a couple of years and the chips were fantastic too.

Service: 5/5
Food 5/5
Price 5/5

To order from them call: 0161 445 4374
