    But it's listed the Prosecco as £24 which is £32 less 25% and the Hardys shiraz as £9.75 which is £13 less 25% and I don't think it's done that in the past iyswim

    In the past the 25% came off full price, whether it still does I don't know

    It's taking 25% off the £6.50 then £4 per pair off for the multibuy. Works out at £17.25 for 6 bottles (£2.875 each) Total bargain!

    Looked at Damart for a cardigan for work and saw this - not for work obviously and a tad pricey at £39, but would be nice as a cover-up for the party season and wouldn't distract from the dress beneath:

    ETA2 I see what you mean about the comparable price being 25% less that the original hippychicky, maybe it's because there's an own brand in there it's picked up the offer?

    I understand the non comparable thing but thought the glitch was that it compared full price and not the reduced one?

    Good Afternoon


    Another lazy morning here

    Glad Rhos is alright & in the loop

    Feeling glum as Dad has had another mini stroke This time a Dr was called & he has to have a CT scan The worrying bit is it a bleed one or a clot?
    Clot would be better as blood can be thinned. He also has blood cancer so blood has to be monitored ...

    So I'm away with my gloomy thoughts at the moment

    Which makes me think - both my offers stopped working for me once I paid over some actual money. So I'm wondering if getting things for free keeps it alive and active as it's not registering any spend?

    Worth bearing in mind for next time.
