    It will all be worth it when they arrive, you will get all of the good stuff - if I even get to use the code it will all be Tesco finest and similar cooking wine

    The last 2 boxes I had were very worth the money a few corkers and some blossom hill summer fruits just to balance it out...I think they have replaced the weight watchers that we used to get previously...

    I still love em though.....

    Yes they had quite a few of them there this afternoon (world Food aisle, American section). I didn't get them as I don't fancy them, but as usual I do like to see if they have the items on cos, etc even if I have no intention of getting them
    I even went in Holland & Barrett to see if they had any of the oppo ice cream when the free vouchers were about even though I hadn't printed any off. They didn't have any by the way. I then went to Heron Foods where they had the mint Oppo for 99p!

    ok so I think I need my wine buffs help and advice...

    one case has the sherry which we wouldn't drink .....theres a bottle of something blason that's £20 a pop,a fizz,a blue nun and a combined total of £79 without 2 bottles that I can't price up.....

    I can live with that...

    so I open the 2nd case....and am greeted by 2 bottles of 0% sorelle....what's that all about in a wine case!!!

    What are your thoughts on returning them.....
    I'll carry on pricing up the rest of the case.

    has anyone checked their Sainsburys mycoupons list recently?

    I've just checked both OHs and mine - nothing on either list we have ever bought before or even anything similar to what we have bought before.

    The few items I might have considered choosing to put onto the list when I checked mysupermarket for prices every single item was cheaper in other supermarkets - not just odd pence but some things over £1 cheaper

    and double points for a £10 shop so that's an extra 10 points - as if I would spend £10 in one go

    I also checked nectar although most things seem due for renewal next Thursday. I've got double points for fuel, 500 points for BP - no BP garages for miles around and another one where you have to scan 5 times to get bonus points - I always put things through the SS one item at a time (or enough items to make up a pound)

    My only reason for going up this afternoon is to take the recycling, do a clothing return and get my one free yogurt set

    could you put all of the rejected ones into one case and then see how bad it looks - sherry, sorelle, fizz, blue nun etc - it does sound like you have most of a case that needs to go back - not sure how you do that though, do you have to take it instore?

    Morning All.

    Just had my BG confirmation from the collective switch, dd of £112, was expecting £66 per month!!
    Panicked at first, logged into my account and was able to change the amounts to just over £80 per month, still more than expected as I hate direct debits for energy accounts, but the overall expected savings should be £315, so worth it in the end.

    thanks to the peeps who have discussed it and glad I have taken the plunge.
