couple of months ago and was charged _8_ pounds, even though they
didn't "do" it immediately and had to post it to me. I even supplied
the SAE for them.
Is a price increase "on the cards"?
Some local offices make a charge for postage and for use of a credit card on
top of the charge for the certificate.
Well, I gave them a cheque which I'd already written for 7 pounds,
then had to give them 1 pound cash, and as I say, gave them a SAE too,
so I've probably been ripped off...
I never use (indeed I haven't got (by choice)) a credit card, but my
local register office (Sunderland) has recently started taking debit
cards, which is very handy. They don't do cash-back yet though,
although they do have a facility for paying tips with the card!
Happy New Year to all.
