    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.

    And with the 2 together railcard as the OP said.

    Damm so should have got them, would they have still done 2 for £5 as well?
    I know im hard work sorry

    you would have got only 18p off for the 2 for £5 offer. but as they were cheaper per pack you would have lost out big time on the 20% pyo offer.
    often in waitrose its cheaper to buy full price items that are on multi and pyo
    It is great news about zippy. God can you imagine him as a granddad... 'If Carlsberg done Grandfathers.... he would be Zippy'.

    Strange, my voucher just says £10 Voucher, no conditions at all
    BUT I do normal orders from them as well as love boden dresses.

    Ive had a look at the Boden website and I got a good enough badket together dress and top but then i went to Sainsbobs again and the dress went out of stock
    Just have to keep popping onto the website to see what else cones into stock - everything seems to be £29 and something, just under £30

    Played the game.
    Bought leggings I needed in 2 separate shops 1 x 200 and 1 x 500
    £10 fuel 1 x500

    Think I am done. Can't justify more fuel as new car end of nov and will have to plan couple of trips to use up what I have got.
    Really wanted the posh £10 leggings in black but had to settle for a grey pair and a set of 2 for £10 black ones so if more stock Tuesday will change for black but knowing sainsburys the nicer leggings will have all gone for this season. I reckon the nicer ones last at least 3 x as long and don't lose their colour like the cheaper ones.

    Scratched my itch anyway.

    Plucking up the courage to go to Sains. Don't want to bump into the rat again
    Didn't go earlier as looked at traffic report and was really bad in Sains area. Looks ok now though, fingers crossed.

    Just come in from tortoise roll call
    You would think they would be considering hibernation now?
    No... Usually they have separate gardens to avoid any shenanigans involving pregnancies...
    But as they are now together in the large greenhouse as the next step towards hibernation. They are at it no sleepy males

    With my 1,000 and 500 points ones, I have been going straight back and buying one banana per coupon.

    Over 1000 point coupons have to go through manned till or CS desk.

    including me, we are lucky to be getting away so far by using more than one at a time.
    there will be more just fights to come.
    dont give them reason to look into the coupons they do give us.
    i know the wording is 1 per transaction (so poss many per day) but on the other hand we have been getting away with many per transaction. elite rule "dont draw unnecessary atention

    funny enough, the only one to refuse more than one coupon at a time , was my favourite sa. so i thought management has had words with the staff. but as a true elite i chanced it again with another sa and all went ok
    It is great news about zippy. God can you imagine him as a granddad... 'If Carlsberg done Grandfathers.... he would be Zippy'.
