    thanks for this - if I ask OH to go to sainsbuys again today he will explode!

    on my nectar page I've got bonus points for buying Whiskas creamy soup and its on GJ with £1.20 back - seems to be £3 according to mysupermarket

    I did my first uploads over the weekend and it seems very straightforward.
    I bought the sparkling elderflower because it is on offer for £1.50 and I got 70p for that but I also wombled a nice receipt with spinach and salmon on
    So I've got £3.10 to draw down already

    so £50K is the max but I imagine that there are people out there who invested in ISAs when they were big news many many years ago who only get 0.50% now so why not - might as well have some fun with your money

    About 30 years ago I found £5 wet in a gutter when £5 was a significant amount so I bought a premium bond - never won anything. OH has won once

    I ought to register online
    Originally posted by mhoc
    I put the max in earlier in the year because the interest rates were so dire and I've won every month since. When I checked it earlier I was on target for 3% return. Of course it's a lottery and for every win over the average payout rate there will be someone under but I find it fun as well. I opted for cheques in the post for any wins but there are other payment options. I just like opening the envelopes and seeing what I've won . I try not to check at the start of the month but usually can't resist.

    Actually Treacle cat who does not have many side teeth left after his dental op earlier this year is the most keen to eat.
    but it should be good for him to have liquid cat food to slurp up

    I am given in and bought Aldi gravy sachets today so now they have 7 versions of cat food in assorted flavours to turn their noses up at

    Felix jelly
    whiskas jelly
    Morrisons kitten food jelly
    Asda pate
    Sainsburys gravy cans
    Asda pate cans
    Aldi gravy sachets
