    I was told in store today that double up is coming on towards the end of this month, by sa and customer service .

    Oh can you double up for virgin trains?

    I don't think you can use points for trains (have given up looking at the offers since they have always been useless for me) but every time I buy a Virgin train ticket I go through Topcashback for some extra pennies but they also give me some Nectar points and every so often there is a bonus too, which is partly why my points balance is health as I hardly ever shop at S.

And I only have the free little dishes from T so I have to buy them at T. Idiot me for thinking I'd buy them in A! It will be interesting to see if I can also get rid of a few of the £1 off vouchers...

    TS, I am thinking that I have received more value in Nectar points than I have spent on food this month, and when I double them up I am no longer ashamed on my rubbish frocking!

    I tell you what I walked around the shop and really didn't know what to buy. I nearly walked back out with an empty trolley.

    Then remembered we were short on oil and knew we didn't have enough to last out the month and I didn't have any stashed.

    I actually thought everything seemed a bit expensive there didn't seem to be many offers maybe because they are doing the swipe and win promotion.

    Thanks Bubbs. The Virgin offers tend not to be the load to card ones and they just happen if you use the Virgin website and have told it your Nectar number. And this one is the East Coast version of Virgin and sadly I can't think of a good reason to travel East Coast! (I wonder if they have any tickets for less than a fiver to get the 500 bonus points?!)

    I got all excited then, I've been looking at trains, we've been invited to a wedding at Gretna Green. That's a good 4 hour drive for us so we were woundering what the prices were for us to travel by train.
    Wolverhampton to Carlise for two return is £149, then to travel to Gretna. So looks like I got a nice long drive.
