    They must be a aid by the brands/manufacturer to push certain products on a certain offer plus a commission/fee.

    I would think they can demonstrate success given we on Elite and rest of the HUKD/10ways/glitch/Cashback/coupon community are on it boosting "sales" .

    Then there is the cost saved by not designing, printing, distributing coupons

    It should still work as offers are still on in A and T. Someone reported some flavours not working yesterday though I am not sure if we established why as I have not read back yet.

    Yes Schw should also be good for CoS or CS - just check you choices are listed in the app and that they compare to T.

    Jo and Jen are very helpful - jo does seem to work all hours though. You wonder if it is a small outfit .

    Two identical shops is a training session - build him up to 5 or more and he will get the hang of it . Self scan can cut down the hassle particularly if there is no alcohol or other items needing CS intervention - and if you do need them, they don't tend to hang about observing as too busy .

    Highlights of my Waities shop, on offer and PYO

    Colliers cheese =£1.60
    Small chicken =£2.40
    Part boned chicken breasts =£2.40
    Finish lemon dishwasher cleaner = £1.20 ea (buy in 2s)
    Dettol 84 kitchen wipes = £1.20 ea. (buy in 2s)

    There are also a few items in the 3 for £10 meats offer that are also in PYO, braising steak, Hereford mince beef, mini chicken fillets from memory but I didn't get these.

    Also some Waities bacons are reduced and PYO. And the curry meal deal has plenty in the PYO but I'm sure these were better value when in the 2 - £6.

    I was at a loose end in Tesco yesterday afternoon so I was just getting the beans for TCB and then I thought about the shwartz -
    One of my COS accounts is due for withdrawal so I thought no harm in getting 6 herbs so I wont need any fillers.

    As you can see Tesco admit they have a multi buy but not that Asda has

    and like an idiot I put the beans through on the same shop so I lost 25p there

    The moral of the tale is never ever go off piste and buy anything other than what is on the shopping list

    On the plus side the Hipp and tea went straight into the food bank basket, I got my TCB cashback and another £5.01 from COS and a receiupt to scan for receipt hogg and shopprize and Ive got spare herbs I can give to eldest child, an excellent chef who nearly always cooks from scratch
    and not much real money spent
