Such a good natured person she was but a barrier to wombling
similar sort of thing happened to me today, shop was just about closing time and i was just entering the store and saw a nice long receipt in a small trolly so went for it but as i did a guy got hold of the handle at the same time as me, so i just said.... oh, is that my receipt, i have just bought a microwave and left my receipt in my trolly and need it for the guarantee..... i picked the receipt up and it was full of reduced sandwiches at 10p so threw it back in the trolly and said no, thats not mine... lol. Next thing , he is shouting over to the woman on Customer Services desk asking her to reprint a receipt for me! I just told her it didnt matter as i was in a rush and would search the boot of my car and return tomorrow for a reprinted receipt... LOL

Great find!
the coke is the drink part of the finest meal deal guys, so, if we buy a meal deal with the coke, providing that the meal , side and sweet is originally over a tenner we can use the 2 voucher and get a PP back too
It`s nice to be important, but its more important to be nice.

having been kept entertained for a while now reading Savvybuyers detailed explanation of the As gift glitch.....I thought I'd try the following tomorrow....

2 x Dove Fresh Indulgence gift sets (pink) 6 each or 2 for 8.... 4 each in T

not labelled as part of the 2 for 8 deal on mys....so assuming/hoping it will compare at 12 v 8....include the 10% makes it 3.20 for the two gift sets

I will try it tomorrow and post results
But be careful... MSM on the APG usually compares the price you paid in-store (including any multibuy) regardless of what it says on the MSM.co.uk Especially as buying two of the same item, it's probably going to come back with 2xDove Fresh Indulgence A 8.00 (in red) vs T 8.00, if the multibuy comes off in-store. I've not tried it though. If it doesn't give you the multibuy deal in store, then it's still the same as you'll pay 12 but put 4 onto the APG voucher.

New topic: this probably isn't the right forum to post "deals" as such, but I can be forgiven on this one occasion. Saw this morning in Poundland, packs of 400-odd gram Family Circle biscuits. Thought it might make a change for those tired of Vinnies, even if costs slightly more! There was no price labelling nearby but, due to the name of the store, I have a strong suspicion the 400+g Family Circles might be 1 each. Much less costly than the 800g odd tins that we see on 'reduction' at 5. Assuming this is nationwide and continues tomorrow, you can buy two of the packs and empty them into a spare, clean biscuit tin bought earlier. If not a Family Circle tin, maybe a Vinnies instead...
The 400 or so gram Circles at Poundland are cheaper than the same pack at Sains. in October (when they were on sale for 1.24); weren't avail in A then, if they had been would still have been slightly more expensive even on an A vs S comp.

Good night now.
