    Morning everyone. Trying to catch up a bit and am confused with the cashback apps. I thought once you claimed things disappeared from the apps? Mine haven't ! And someone said Shopmium would have blind pig back today. Mine hasn't. Missed that one!

    Another thing. Sorry I said I was confused. CS and CoS have pictures of different flavours but say one claim. Did someone say you can get all three flavours and it counts as one claim please?

    Many apologies for all the questions.

    Go through the motions of making a claim and you'll then be able to see how many redemptions are actually available

    edit: this shows you the maximum number of claims you can make within the offer period. The app doesn't reduce as you claim so you need to take into account how many claims you've already made

    If you check the website www.quidco.co.uk/clicksnap it shows you exactly what you have left to claim

    I haven't bought ant T's wine for ages and I've forgotten exactly how it works - am I right in thinking that we just need 6 of the Hardys to get the double discount and that we are not also going for a price match as 2 bottles in T are cheaper than 2 in A ?

    No idea sorry as I got ballerina slippers and paid £1 but then I couldn't use it again.

    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.

    Yes it's cheaper because of the double discount than any that would price match.

    If so pm me - I suspect someone still is but does not want to say how many vests they have accumulated incase Marks starts

    I image they are making a vast vest pile ready for car booting

    Just updated my Frocky total... Seriously wishing I'd stocked up in advance, but I know nothing else will be needed this week apart from maybe some milk, and that should be it until Sunday. Hope other people are also starting to make their way through the darkest recesses of their furthest kitchen cupboards in a bid to rustle up the weirdest and most wonderful tea/dinnertime concoctions for as little as possible

    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

    Did the fleece etc etc etc, then saw a jacket for a gift for someone, so had to pay a bit on top for that - offer ended after that.

    With lingerie, I was still in gift mode and vests were temp OOS at the time, so went for slippers, paid £1 - offer ended after that.

    Trousers - well they are all over £5 anyhow, so single use.

    Just thought I haven't actually collected any orders yet though. Wonder if that makes a difference. Not gone mad either. Just the different colours have been in stock different days when I have happened to be around...
