    Was with tinned stuff and cordial in my store which is a complete shambles.

    Just ask, label did state 7.49 but went through at 6.49.
    Good Luck.

    Do we all know about the excellent wombling opportunities laid on to us by the Co-op?

    They have this new loyalty card/membership scheme. You pay £1 and get a card that gives back a percentage of your spend on co-op branded goods to you and a smaller one to the community.

    They can't add missed receipts in store so you have to do it online

    Has done me quite well so far this week

    I need to do 3 more swipes by 19th for 100 bonus points apparently.

    Wonder if I'll manage to do that ...

    I got 190 pts if I buy some lamb, 300 if I spend £15, and 7p off a litre if I spend £15 on household (which is doubtful as S is a bit pricey on household)

    Today I got my first new £5.

    My only grocery spend today was 75p bread.

    Hi, can anyone help.

    The vouchers/prizes that spit out at the till. Do they have to be added to the same nectar card that was swiped?

    My nectar card has been cancelled because I haven't used it for over 12 months maybe I could use a friends card to swipe while I wait for replacement card?

    I'm gutted

    Does your contract allow you to accept it QoC?

    Years ago Mr TS was left money in one of his clients will, a substantial sum too would have made such a difference to us at the time. But there is a clause in his contract that he is not allowed to accept gifts etc. In the end he was allowed to accept but then had to gift straight to the charity he worked for.

    Probably different circumstances to you but the client could not understand the help Mr TS was giving him he was already getting paid for. He did try and explain. The solicitor contacted Mr TS direct and said his client hoped he could accept it. I guess in the end he has indirectly benefitted by it going to the company who pays his wages....

    New carer tonight - Annie from Estonia. Very efficient, unfortunately my Mother is instantly speaking with an Estonian accent

    How to subtlety stop her?

    The question is does she know you are paid by your company to do the work? If she knows then she obviously wanted to give you a bonus.
