    Finally home.

    I think this is how it went:

    3 x £10 petrol = 1,000 + 1,000 + 500 = £12.50 in points

    1 x jeggings = 2,000 = £10 in points (sadly jeggings unsuitable so returned within 2 hrs)

    1 x £15.03 shop, £10 of which was meat, £1 sweets for kids, £2 choc, £2 bread and milk for DD = 1,000 = £5 in points, + 300 bonus wys £15, 190 bonus for lamb, plus till spit for 300 wys another £15.

    Then to DD's and in due course returned to shop with her, she was in a grump and I thought she needed the distraction.

    £10.50 shop - Xmas chocs = 1,000 = £5 in points

    £15 shop = 1,000 = £5 in points, 300 bonus points. I got a kettle, not quite sure if it's a keeper yet.

    So £70.53 net spend including dubious kettle, £41.45 back in points (I think)

    Plus double points here and there on the 6-swipe thingy, plus the end bonus of 100pts.

    Anyway I started weekend with 20p in points, now have around £42

    DD got £10 of stuff she wanted (kitchen sundries) and got 500, so she took that to CS to be added. Then she went and picked up a jacket, priced £25, but it scanned at £12.50, so feeling frugal, she bought it with her points and it gave her a fiver back in bonus, which she got added on straight away. And she ended up a happier bunny.

    £12 to add to frockery total though...

    Well back from sains and i did 3 shops but so so angry On th way in went CS to have points added and she was jsut refusing a lady infront, i said i want to do the same
    She reckons you had to add on next shop that why there was a date on them.
    I said all coupons have dates! no these have dates so you can on next shop.
    I said does NOT say that on website, other lady said you need to read your own t&c before trading standards get involved
    Anyway she didnt either of ours
    Went shopping went ss and of course the big ones dont scan on there
    SA said you have to go CS i told her what happened and she said well she wont be giving me a lift then anymore as sent loads up there i said she was jumped up and she agreed
    Top and tail she sent a SA with me to CS and she STILL REFUSED!
    I then got t&c up on phone and she rang manager and was told to put them through this once so i gve her 1 x5000 and 2 x 2000
    I will contact nectar though i sstill have 2000 to put on and have £138.xx on nectar now

    Well done on the total, but the CS lady is being ridiculous. DD had both hers added on today within half an hour of each other, and I had all mine put on.

    DD's CS lady said she was a bit fed up of doing them and would be glad when tomorrow comes.
    My CS lady did my final two in one go and asked had I got any more to put on while she was at it...

    Morning paw sniffers......not a bad day here. Plenty of washing to sort out including bedding and overwintering onions to go in too.

    Anyone grow Elephant garlic? I'm thinking it might be mild.

    No S for me today. I'm over the moon with what I won and look forward to a great double up promotion before Christmas fingers crossed.

    It seems I've gone from very little to a great deal of nectar points with plenty of scope for buying both Christmas fizz and Christmas presents from Homeware......posh flute gasses come to mind

    Had the cheesy wine with our lunch today. Very pleasant for a freebie. Free wine and everything needed for lunch either in stock or paid for with wombles Only food spend this weekend was £1 on a pack of Frusli bars from the pound shop. We need some potatoes now though.

    I managed to get OH to S, he put 2 x £10 in and said it was full. I told him to get out of the car and put another £10 in, and watched him. The kick went at £5+, he was ready to give up until I barked at him to continue and fill it up... it easily got to £10.

    The into the shop, one lot of clothing returned, and a few new clothes buy, the lowest till split was 200 points. I think I am £200 up in points. I am keeping some clothes, but the rest are terrible... maybe I should have take more time choosing rather than just checking that it was over a £10!

    lol.

    Many of the clothes in S are truly shocking in quality and poor value for money - I was going around tutting.

    There was one top there though, it came in black or khaki in some so-soft fabric, but it was a cap sleeve. I said to DD if they'd only done it long-sleeve or even three-quarter, they'd have probably sold out on day one. And if done in a range of colour choices, I'd have had that in every colour going for workwear.
