    • If you're unhappy with your purchase, please let us know. Unless faulty, we'd like this to be within 90 days of purchase
    • If you return your item to one of our shops and you'd like a refund but don't have your receipt, order confirmation or delivery note, we'll give you a gift card to the value of the current selling price

    Looks like this is on the grocery website for two days only. 10th and 11th. HUKD are suggesting this is online only but I don't think that is right as all Ts offers always say "offer valid For delivery from X until Y" which it would because we are looking at the online delivery website.

    There should be some some brand match bargains T v A, I've looked on MSM (check A website before buying) and found these all cheaper at A.

    Barefoot Pinot Grigio
    Gallo family white Grenache
    Harry's stamp Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon
    Barefoot white zinfandel
    Cono sur bicicleta sauvignon blanc
    Cono sur bicicleta Pinot noir
    Torres Sanger de toro catalunya
    Faust into VII Rioja
    Cassllero del diablo Shiraz

    There are probably more as I've only had a quick look.

    Does anyone know why people on HFP are buying John Lewis gift cards in T (obv. the 75 cc for every £25) and you can use them in Waities.... but is there another reason that I cannot find/understand? Thanks x

    I suspect that (a) they will do virtually anything for Avios and (b) are more likely to be shoppers of JL/ waity. Also think it can be combined with a current Amex offer where you get double avios for shopping with the BA Amex if you reach the target spend of £10,000 in the next few weeks.

    Very different audience, that £10,000 spend wasn't a typo.
