I eventually used some boots coupons on Femfresh and Always yesterday - the Femfresh worked out at 70p after coupons but Always were free!

Trying to compose an Asda shopping list this morning to use up a £5 odd APG voucher (plus some MOCs if possible) and it is so difficult to find anything with a good enough price difference between Asda and Tesco.

Has anyone any suggestions?

If anyone has any nestle coupons by any chance Asda currently have some of them for £1.00 and they are £2.09 is Tescos!

Also Oreo 4 mini packs of Cookies are on offer for 50p (for 4) in Asda, Tescos have them for 79p - not the biggest saving but if you have a coupon they could work out as free!

Actimel 12 pack is £2.00 at Asda but £3.85 at Tesco!

Thought this info could be helpful to someone!

Got a nice few items from Mr S today should have been £42.50 instead was a nice £16.92, most of that down to MOCs. Found a solitary double pack of the new cheapo variety of 'Always' reduced to £1.12 in local S, its not on MyS so not sure if its a new product or one on its way out, but anyway was 12p with coupon. Also got some flash sprays, were 99p so not that good value but still half price, various cans of campbells condensed soups, herbal essences shampoos for 66p each and some more aunt Bessie's. Usual lovely SA was not in, hope she is ok as she always works on Sunday ordinarily but after a quick 'trout scout' decided to go to cheery-looking young male SAs till, he didn't bat an eyelid when I said I was doing two transactions and when some of the SSM MC coupons didn't scan (the same ones causing problems for people in Mr T interestingly enough-just the S variants...) he just put them through as a 'voucher' instead. Very rarely for me, got a couple of huggies till spits; but nothing really to write home about, a mere £1 each off little swimmers and superdry. xx

Just done a nice Ocado shop since I didn't order from them since about November they got worried and sent me a personalised code for 1/3 off a £60 shop, so for £40 I got loads of big packs of buxton water, a massive fruit, veg and salad box, nappies, four 1kg containers of ariel stain remover (which I am counting as free as the total value of those was £20) and a few shower gels that were on offer. Am off to Mr S in a few minutes to see if they have the dettol handwash system because its reduced to £5 there now instead of Mr As and although my OH did not take his coupons I printed in his name to ASDA and they are now expired I managed to print one in my name when I briefly got my old laptop to work and as it was a few days later it is still valid until Wednesday xx

All my SSM rewards are now 'redeemed' my only worry is we are going on holiday in a week for two weeks and I am sure the rewards will be delivered by some type of recorded delivery which they only keep at the post office for a week, not sure what to do, as it said on the site it could take up to a month for them to be delivered anyway, might mention it on their FB page and see what they say....

When I am going away I tell my local post office especially if I am expecting post to be signed for and they willingly keep it until I get back. Worth a try.

Thanks, in this area it gets taken back to a delivery office though, not the post office itself, does that make any difference do you think?

ETA: don't worry I found that royal mail have an official service in this regard called 'keepsake' they say if you sign up for it its set up in 5 working days and it only costs £9.38 for everyone in your household; also they can keep recorded items for 18 days instead of the usual 7

Default SSM Coupons

I have a ton of SSM Mission Control coupons to use, but they do not specify if you can use more than one coupon on each product. The other SafeCoupons I've used in the past, usually state one per product.

Has anyone had any luck using more than one SSM coupon per product in Tesco?

I was in Tesco's tonight and they were putting out the New Offers and I spotted Douwe Egberts (not sure I'ce spelt that correctly!) jars - didn't see a price but for those that still have coupons it could be good!

Also they had Bakers Meaty 1kg boxes for £1.90 - so just 40p with the £1.50 Coupons.

I also got a £9.00 off WYS £60.00!

Not amused that I was charged for 4 boxes of cereal that I didn't purchase though!
I bought just one and 4 of the next item so I'm out of pocket £4.00 - didn't notice until I got home and I narrowly averted disaster - I left my coupon binder in the trolly!!!
Thankfully the CS woman who is lovely recognised it and called me straight away as I had emailed her a link to here so she had my details! Phew.....

With mission control supersavvyme have advised you are only meant to be able to print one coupon per sticker, anything otherwise that people could print was down to technical error

Unhappy First coupon accident question

Hello all! I was in Tesco picking up a few bits and pieces and using up some coupons on the Bold 2 in1 and Pantene (SSM deal). I had taken a 50p MOC with me for Kenco but decided not to buy any just yet, but being the muppet i am i forgot to take the Kenco MOC out of the pile and oddly it scanned despite me not buying the product. I only noticed when i checked my receipt last night. I am now concerned this may be traced back to me and it will seem as if i misused the coupon.

What would you do in this situation? I am guessing i should go to customer service and man up. I'll probably get some bizarre looks as usual!

From what I've read some tesco branches will allow using more than one per product but others won't and might be not too polite towards you. Personally I just used one per item anyway, just to be safe xx

I've managed to use 4 ssm coupons for the product (i.e 4 x oral b toothpaste) at once in Tesco's. But Sainsburys is a nightmare - struggled to have any accepted at the weekend.

All down to your store I think.

People are having numerous issues with SSM today; many people have received stickers but no rewards. It seems the 50 top picks sticker and the silver rated and gold rated stickers are the worst affected.
