Money Memories 5 – THE WINNER


Jeremy Newell has been paraplegic from birth and the severity of his disability has meant he hasn’t been able to have a holiday for 25 years – until now.

After making claims against three credit cards – two from Lloyds and one from Morgan Stanley – Jeremy ended up with £2,357.88 in compensation which helped him to fly away for a week in the sun on Gran Canaria.

Brilliant

“It was brilliant,” said Jeremy. “I’ve never been able to get away on holiday because I have to have two carers to look after me, but this payout helped me to take them both for a week-long holiday of a lifetime in Maspalomas, Gran Canaria.

“It was a beautiful resort which had been recommended because it is nice and flat and suited my wheelchair. I thought I would never have a holiday again because there’s no way I could have afforded to do it.”

Claims deadline

Jeremy made his claims after seeing a Gladstone Brookes TV advert and deciding he should check once and for all if he was owed anything for mis-sold PPI before the claims deadline in 2019.

He said: “I had no idea whether I was owed anything or not because it was so long ago when I signed up for the agreements, but I wanted to make sure before the claims deadline kicked in.

Service

“The service from Gladstone Brookes was excellent and after I thought I would tell everyone my money memories because it truly was the holiday of a lifetime.

“I had no idea that I would win out of all those entries and was amazed when my name was picked out. It’s a nice little bonus just before Christmas.”

“I had no idea whether I was owed anything or not because it was so long ago when I signed up for the agreements, but I wanted to make sure before the claims deadline kicked in.”

There is increasing speculation that the Arnie Schwarzenegger PPI claims campaign is not working as well as it should and there is a danger some people could miss out on compensation which is rightfully theirs.
