I'm with skinny, anyone got this sms? It's from "800". Very weird.

Drinks sorted for Christmas? Hurry in to Countdown for our Wine, Beer & Cider Sale, on now all the way to Christmas. Reply QUIT to opt out.

Do you have a onecard with countdown (or have you given them your cell details in a competition or similar)? Looks like a bog standard marketing text message from them. I didn't get a text (and have a one card) but it gives you the option to Opt OUt of SMS by replying (thereby complying with the anti-spam act)

As above, it's tied in with your OneCard/Countdown account, where you'll have entered your mobile number. And yes, very easy to opt out.





Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Thanks for confirming it's not a scam. Or something along those.
