Say no to 0870

Regular readers might know that I have been impressed with a site called money saving expert. Martin Lewis, who runs it, has created a community of consumers who challenge big corporates into offering better value to you and me. Did you know for example that all those 0870 numbers we have to call only to be left on hold for ages, generate a fortune for the companies that provide them? Anyway, there’s a web site dedicated to consumers who say enough is enough – say no to 0870. It provides alternative numbers and ways to get around paying the inflated prices these companies charge. Ironically, the site it partly funded by Google adwords that you guessed it, throw up a rather large number of ads for companies with 0870 numbers! Have a look at how site users are using the Freedom of Information Act to make their point.

Why do I have to use an 0845 no. when correcting
one of their errors?

#4 Martin Cairney on 06.05.06 at 12:06 pm seems to have disappeared – anybody know what’s happened please?

I strongly object to 0870 numbers and used this site a lot.

Thanks for any response.

I used saynoto0870 successfully today after I got fed up of hanging on the 0870 number for a big multinational corp.

For those of you who cannot find Say no to 0870, just type No 0870 in the search engine and save it to yout favourites.

Also why does the government not publish the geographical numbers next to their 0845 and 0870 numbers which cost fortunes to dial from non BT Subscriber Phones. DVLA, DWP and Companies House to name but a few. These are Government Tax Payer financed srevices, why should we pay premiu rates to contact them?
