Damson Plums $5/kig

Justin from Somerfield

Selling 5-7pm all week and this weekend. If you have a soft spot for these plums that you can't get in the shop stop by 41 Rose St, Somerfield. Would consider an even swap for Black Boy Peaches or Tomatoes.

Price: $5

Carethy internet shopping site DO NOT USE scammers

Katie from Cashmere

If anyone is doing an internet search for a particular item and you consider buying anything from Carethy.net, Carethy.com or Carethy. nz. DO NOT! They are a bunch of scammers which as I now notice is very much out there in their reviews. I wished I had known this before I ordered. The general theme seems to be the same. You order what you want, they take your payment and it all looks very professional. Weeks later and after many emails to them, they inform you that they do not have the stock. They offer you the opportunity to spend your money elsewhere on their site rather than a refund. This is also a con so don’t go there either! Eventually, you will manage to get a response which offers you a refund within 14 business days! (Does it really take that long to refund a card). Anyway, that is where any communication with you ends, no matter how many emails a day you could possibly send, and they run off into the sunset with your hard earned cash. PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY, IT IS A SCAM! Please share this information far and wide so that they hopefully stop thinking they can scam Kiwis.

Poll: Would you pay more to scrap card surcharges?

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

We are used to tapping our card to pay in stores, but we are now having to decide whether to swipe it, insert it or use paywave depending on credit card surcharges. It can all be a bit tiring!

Would you rather that a retailer's card surcharges were just built into the cost of the items themselves? Share your thoughts below.

Type 'Not For Print' if you wish your comments to be excluded from the We Say You Say column of your local paper.
