Fed up with online shops forwarding my details to review sites

I thought GDPR should stop this but I keep getting Third Parties emailing me asking me to review my purchases. One company told me it was ok to share my email to trustpilot, is it?

misleading energy supplier renewal deals

Renewal note from energy supplier OneSelect, gives me choice between fixed vs flexible tariff. It uses 2 different estimates of annual fuel consumption to steer you toward the fixed tariff – unfair!

Plastic wrapped fruit and veg

Every supermarket where I live supports plastic wrapped fruit/ veg with the exception of Sainsbury’s . I pay more for the fruit and veg by choosing to shop in my local greengrocer and Sainsburys.

CREDIT CARDS ABROAD A WARNING

We are encouraged by advertisers and travel pundits to use our bank and credit cards to access cash abroad instead of carrying cash. I have had problems being unable to draw cash. But worst was when my cards were stolen. Barclays branch 10 minutes away but refused to help. All card companies said could only send cards to my home address, 7000 mls away.

Websites: don’t make me login to unsubscribe

I don’t think unsubscribing from an email digest should mandate login. It’s purposefully laborious to discourage ppl. The Times is worst, you can’t unsubscribe from daily emails without a phonecall!

It seems Neff combo-microwaves are not up to scratch

I have been concerned for some time that my Neff microwave does not deliver as much power as it should. Seems from Googling that the 1000W is only delivered for 70 secs and then the power drops back to 600W. From discussions I have seen on an Internet forum on AVforums.com many users have experienced this and those that pressed the case have had full refunds!

HP cartridge ink rip off. Our Envy 5646 printer gobbles up ink so I bought a non HP tricolour cartridge from Which ? best buy supplier Refresh. Instead of the usual 400 + print output after less than 100 copies it refused to print with a message to remove and replace the cartridge. Despite doing this several times and turning off the power supply still no prints. Checking online I found comments that HP has installed firmware into some printer ranges to restrict output on non HP cartridges. Also read that HP was fined 5 million dollars in the US in a class action due to a similar issue with their own cartridges.
Logging on to the HP helpline was as useful as the chocolate teapot allusion in that I was cut off when defined the problem
How many other consumers have lost money by buying non HP products and been forced to use very expensive own brand items ?
Any other Which ? members had the same problem ?

Excessive fuel charges at service stations

Travelling a lot recently I’ve noticed that service stations charge an average of 15-20p per litre more for fuel than regular petrol stations (£1.50 as opposed to £1.30). How do they justify this?

Tesco’s removal of best before dates on fresh produce

A very bad idea. This is just a way to move old stock with a short life-expectancy onto unsuspecting customers who will find things going rotten in a few days – how will that reduce waste?

Washing machine higher spin speeds damage fabrics

It seems the higher spin speed you use the result is that cottons and linens are pulled out of shape and left with semi permanent creases. So why do Which recommend machines with higher spin speeds.

Households need Smart Water Meters ?

Government tells consumers to save water. Is not possible to have smart meters (eg as for energy) installed within each household. 6 monthly water bills are virtually useless in helping to cut usage.
