    Hi everyone. Hope you are all having fun at S. I have done 5 x £10 and got 4 x 1000 points and 1 x 500 which I am very happy with. Going back for another £10 diesel tomorrow and a few clothes that may not fit. Also need to fill OH's van so a bit more fun to be had.
    Mullers also compare online which is good as took a chance and it worked.
    Still have not had a chance to go to T so still not used any Hipp even though I have them printed ready.
    Wombled a picture this morning. 3 in a trolley, other 2 were no good for me. Wombled it for the frame rather than the picture.
    Off to dust & clean the bathroom now then a deserved rest for an hour.

    Not quite right I'm afraid

    60,000 points =£30 Still very good
    Originally posted by andi123
    No, that'll be 6,000 points = £30

    60,000 does equal £300, as I said, but Aau had put an extra zero in his original post by mistake.

    Which matters not a jot, as it got us all thinking big, and thinking big is always a very good thing to do...

    Update on my Frocky

    As I previously mentioned whilst away last weekend in London we managed to spend far more than anticipated but this was not going into the frocky spend anyway, nor was t wine glitch nor is petrol as we use that anyway for work, nor any clothes

    Any items bought that cash can be claimed back ie cos cs etc that amount is deducted from the spend, as are coupons and conditional spends.
    FF wombles which I have been fortunate enough to have had £20 in 2 weeks that cash is straight in my purse therefore is also deducted from my spend.
    But any apg is not counted as it cant be used twice ie if I put in my basket £5 worth of goods and pay using a £4.98 apg the total I actually spend is 2p and that is the amount that is recorded.

    On a separate entity we have been playing at S but as we aren't including petrol or clothing in the frocky total, it was then a hassle to distinguish which extra points coupon came with which shop, which is why none were included...but we filled 2 cars up with fuel,2 clothes shop, 1 DD shop and 1 shop of groceries, but that included 6 pasta £1moc all of these separate transactions totaled £125 but we then had 12 different points coupons back one of which and my last one was for 5,000 I have had several 1,000 and 500 but no 200 the total being £70 back on our nectar cards
    Racking my brain for any things I can get for xmas pressies tomorrow
    I'm up for frugal October....£50-£60 for 3 of us

    1st 2nd Oct Current spend - £6.32......3rd Oct - £1.78 = £8.10 6th Oct £2.64 = £10.74 10th Oct£5.35 = £16.09 11thOct£6.55 =£22.64 15THOct £4.56 = £27.23 17th OCT £7.71 =£34.94 20th Oct £1.72 = £36.66
