    Confused on this voucher. Is it a 20 pack or a 12/15 pack I can claim for

    Either way I have to wait for a womble to turn up.

    It is great news about zippy. God can you imagine him as a granddad... 'If Carlsberg done Grandfathers.... he would be Zippy'.

    Good evening, lovely Elite

    We were lucky enough to get a free dinner at Bella. The nearest one is about 40 mins drive each way, but we'd seen good things online about the promotion, so we were looking forward to it. When we got there we were asked to pick a starter and a main each. We're both veggies, so there was just the one choice. Then we were asked to choose one of the shot desserts each, even though it said on the menu "three to share".
    The other diners were all getting the free dinner too, and were also asked to choose one thing each. From what I've seen from others who have been, it's usual to get a selection of different things to try. So I guess it's up to the individual branches to decide how it goes.
    The portions are on the small side, and the non-promotional prices are quite high, so I guess the discounts and freebies must be how they get bums on seats.

    I purchased a 15 pack, tried to request the £5, but it has been declined 3 times, I queried again but got suspended cause they say I have 3 accounts set up. Sadly that's untrue but I think things went wrong from the switch over.

    Evening Peeps.

    I am hoping that the Muller is still working in Sada tomorrow- ideally I want

    11 cherry corners
    one strawberry rice

    Is that the correct proportions pretty please?

    Last Sunday there was not enough Cherry so I only did the strawberry rice shop

    From having no APGs I now have 3, only about £10 worth but in a quandary what to spend them on - not printed them off yet incase inspiration does not hit me

    If all else fails I will just get more cat food for my three to sniff and walk away from

And when they tell me to swipe several times, I do one item at a time on the ss tills!

    Forgot to say that 2 litres of Flora sunflower oil is £2.50 in ASDA at the moment, £4 everywhere else (though I now spot that Sainsbury are selling their own brand at £2.85 for three litres and Tesco their own brand at £4 for 5 litres). Just in case it helps someone.
