    'Think of the thread as a tree, many branches to it, and not all of us, need all the branches, but we do need the tree!' - midwinter

    New overflow thread for 11+ers

    THE FOLLOWING IS COPIED FROM ORIGINAL FIRST POST ON PREVIOUS THREAD

    This is yet another bargain/glitch/DTD/JTD/misprice thread!

    We know it's in the 'Gone But Not Forgotten' section!


    No, not all of what we say is Tesco related or even of interest to many others but this is the way this thread has formed.

    Many of us want to discuss the various deals to be had but this was not appreciated on the main Grabbit forum. As such, we now use this thread to talk about anything. We also discuss ex-husbands and wives, kids and animals. If you have a medical problem we'll nag you until you go to the Doctor. If you're not feeling well we'll provide support, a wee hot drink and whatever chocolate is currently glitching to cheer you up.

    And finally, yes we know that some people try to obscure the store names but this works both ways. It might make it difficult for those who don't have the time to sit here and natter all day but it also makes it difficult for staff/managers to quickly identify any issues at their store.

    We do try to remember to post new deals in bold. We don't like arguing so we're not going to take umbrage if one or two deals slip through.

    Now sit back, relax and feel free to join in. We don't bite (unless you ask nicely), we will help wherever possible and you don't have to post new deals just to feel like part of the group.

    Please put all your finds in bold with LAST 4 DIGITS OF barcode and photo if possible so we can chat & still speed read for bargains.

    Common abbreviations:

    MOC: Money Off Coupon
    SEL: Shelf Edge Label
    DTD: Double the Difference
    JTD: Just the Difference
    RTC: Reduced to Clear
    OOD: Out Of Date
    OOS: Out Of Stock
    CC: Clubcard or Credit Card, depends on context
    HTH: Hope That Helps
    SA: Sales Assistant
    CS: Customer Services
    DD: Darling Daughter
    DS: Darling Son
    OH: Other Half
    DH: Darling Husband
    ETA : Estimated Time of Arrival
    TIA: Thanks In Anticipation
    GBP: Great Britain Pound (some people can't get the £ sign to work, or have keyboards set up in "bilingual" mode)
    Trout: is the expression used by people on here for cashiers of a certain age, usually female, that are miserable for the sake of being miserable, unhappy in their work, jealous of people with mocs and do their level best to prevent anyone using coupons...try your very best to avoid them at the checkouts..... (thanks to myrtleturtle on the coupon thread for this)
    T.i.T.: Trout-in-Training
    S10CT: stupid 10 character thing.
    Womble: A discarded receipt that you picked up
    Uncle Bulgaria: A womble of BIG value


    Orinocco - A very small womble (i.e. not worth putting into the APG site)

    If you are a member of Tesco home panels, check the inbox, new trial for cling film.

    Even though the trials are not that frequent, they are a good deal. The last one got me 2 boxes of tissues, this one will net 3 rolls of cling film.

    Hi to 584cey. We are not allowed to post codes on this thread, which was why I just posted the link to the BodyShop page - don't worry you weren't to know. You need to edit your post and delete the codes.

    584cey, can you take those codes off here please, you're not allowed to put them on here as it causes problems for MSE. You can post them on the codes board if you like. Thanks hun.

    Edit: see you got there first, silvercar .

    Not sure about sainsbugs . £2 gift card is supposed to be on per different offer/ item overcharge ie if you bought 10 packets of Jaffa cakes and were overcharged u wd only get £2x1 but say there was also a double scan on bread or whatever then u wd get a 2nd one
    Originally posted by ma-ri-ella
    Thanks for that re Asda Mariella - so if you had 4 DVDs all different than would get 2 x £2 (£2 for the overcharge on 2 different dvd's)? Or would they say BOGOF Disney one offer? Sorry for being a bit

    Anyone know re sainsbugs policy if BOGOF not applied at point of sale ..?

    Hi,

    I have set up a twitter account to try and help new home owners, new families, struggling families and stundents etc on finding the best deals out in the supermarket at the moment. We need followers to take a picture of any supermarket deals they see etc in the shops and post them on our twitter page with #REMOVED. This way we can open up all of those supermarket offers at the supermarkets that people sat at home might not be aware of.

    Thanks for your time

    Were they really £2 originally? I thought those shave foams were more like £1-£1.20.

    Re the HH's voucers - top tip. thank you - will know next time.

    I hadn't thought of using them with wombles - ended up having 2 lapse as of Sunday (as no iron casseroles in this area still) but used my WYS £70 on DVDs yesterday so caught up.

    So do Tesco move stuff between stores at customer request like M and S? Cos no casseroles near here but have seen a couple of posts saying they are down south so would be nice if they did customer requests - would need to identify stores with em tho.

    Last week customer services sent me to Garforth (22 there they said) but none there when I got there . Believe that you get intermittent stock on line but then you can't use helping hands/WYS vouchers.

    My local Mr T had a sign up during 5p off petrol promo saying you could redeem at CS after your purchase. I asked if this applied to all MOCs or just petrol and CS told me all MOCs so long as they were in date on the date of the receipt

    I later asked at Mr S out of curiosity and they said they do same thing
