    That makes more sense, thanks.

    As well as adding an extra 0 on the end he also got the comma in the wrong place

    Thanks seren. If it is the 500g size it sells at £4.50 in A

    I might need a few Daily Mails today......after all it lasts forever😀QUOTE

    Thanks to the op for mentioning the marmite.
    Got a jar this morning would have loved another one but there were only 6 jars left on the shelf and lots of seniors standing with their coupon and asking the cashier where it was .

    So happy with 1 and pleased with myself from resisting to get more.

    Cant see how to get £60 of petrol in a car either unless you are driving a tank AAU1

    we are a 2 car and a 2 wheel family so its not uncommon to take 2 cars to the petrol station to fill at the same time...although the second car does have a smaller tank.

    Luckily mine isn't on the list so I will give it a go later.

    Can't see how that's possible to get 60,000 on 6 x £10 spends when the vouchers given out are 2000. Even if they were all 2000 points that would only return 12,000 for a £60 spend. Or am I missing something?

    Nah, i was just missing my coffee.

    I think it was because i had £60 in my head as being what i spent and £60 being what the points i won will be worth in a double up

    I think aau has got a bit over excited with his wins and added an extra "0".

    I made it 2 x 2000 and 4 x 500 = 6,000 as those were the combinations he said he won. An accountant getting the figures wrong!

    Hi all

    Great news about your DD, TS - what a relief for you all

    I managed a JF order this morning

    My nearest 2 S's are excluded from the promotion, which is annoying , can't decide whether to go further afield or not.
    Last time this promo was on, my store wasn't on the exclusion list but didn't give out any points. When I queried it via FB, they said it was because that petrol station didn't have the machine to print them out? I have never seen the coupons, but assumed they are the same as the normal ones which offer extra points/money off etc so not sure why they need a different machine. Anyway, they sent me a £5 giftcard because it wasn't listed as an exclusion(which I then lost, so the whole thing was a waste of time and I still haven't got over losing it )

    Have a good day everyone x
