    I think I am just missing some items, that I have now found. One of them is on hotdeals as being in a store that I visited. I visited two days later and didn't find the product or any SEL for it there at all - definitely no longer in the store when I visited. Some items may be in stores before, clear out and the SEL is away within a couple of days and there is nothing when I visit. I have picked up the product since elsewhere but noticed I have missed it when visiting the other store two days earlier as it seems I was a day or two too late to catch it there. There are a lot of RTC items currently that I have in only one store (and you know how many, increasing number of, stores I am visiting) - I do not know what percentage of them the APG will have.

    Normally I have RTC items in more places at the beginning (perhaps it is because I am trying to find them now having missed a few weeks out?) but, this time, I am finding one in one store, one in another, one elsewhere - just one store contributing one or two items each, one of which may be in another store for me (so just two stores for that item - various items depending on what stores you go to) and no 'central' place for them all - to get them all, I am certainly having to use more stores than would have picked up items in the past. I've have about four or five of the items in a store before and get a lot of them - however, now, it's seemingly thinly dispersed as one different item each in five stores. And - I'm still missing some items as there are items I have not seen that are online! The Red Bull 12 pack, which was not an RTC item, I have only found one version in one store and still have the other missing (but I will assume its price) - despite now having visited 21 stores! (At this point, I am probably not going to go to further stores just yet, although the missing one will probably appear at my nearest store tomorrow, when I am not there. I'm not actually looking for that... I am looking for other things and, yes, each of the three additional stores I have now visited has given me something I didn't have before I went there.)

    The (frozen) Hog Bite Roast has now gone down to £1 (don't know when that happened). I don't know about the chances of the Poppin Chicken, that worked on the APG a couple of weeks ago, still working. I think, as they did pick it up, probably from one store, they are likely to have been OOS for long now to pick up it again. That's assuming the SEL even remains in the store, which I suspect it probably will not. They may, of course, have had the product randomly come into another of their stores later but I don't know. It's probably not even going to get picked up there as OOS.

    It's not OOS in M of course - at least not as of this morning. I did still find a SEL for it last Wednesday, although it was not visible as it had been put underneath a SEL for another product, that also wasn't physically there, that had been turned so that the blank backside of the SEL was showing on the shelf. I think they'd have been OOS for so long in the store that, effectively, no trace of the product. That was all I had: nothing elsewhere.

    I could have done with buying another pack. I didn't have any in my nearby M later in the week. Previously, it had had a SEL, but covered with OOS, whilst the product was on a different shelf. Despite my attempts at hiding stock further to what I then needed, I couldn't find any this week. Fwiw, the SEL had gone and all I had was a covered-up SEL in one other store that has probably been OOS for too long.

    So, today, effectively, I've taken a trip to my M 33 miles away to buy the pack I wanted. Of course I did not go to the store that far away for that reason - I could not have selected a store with the hope of finding it anyway and probably stood little chance of doing so. My method, of eventually successfully buying it, is not available to anyone as money-saving. However, I did happen to have it, with no SEL. So, I have a SEL only just about around a place where there is no stock - OOS for too long and therefore N/A there - and M have stock elsewhere that won't give a price for any comparison as there is no SEL. If the price collectors in one of the collection stores have an indication of the product, through a SEL, it's likely to be OOS there and they'll most probably think M no longer has it as it's been OOS for too long. The one unit of stock, that I bought today, is available (was available this morning) elsewhere.

    Are the new Walkers sharing packs (175g each) £1.50 each or are they on the 2 for £2.00 in A?

    They are all available in M at £1 each (I think, I think I finally have all four of them now). However, () they are new products so I am not sure how quickly the collectors would pick them up. (I suspect N/A for a few weeks - and bloomin Ocados has them at £1 (sigh).)

    My mum always baked when we were young so grew up with it, suppose it depends if you're parents etc did it.
    I can bake and cook most things but NOT rice, its always a solid lump, so Uncle Ben cooks it for me

    Probably mentioned already, but the Cadbury Choc buttons from HB are also in different packs to Golden Sunrise - they are plain packaged as Appleby & Baker in maroon packaging with a sweet shop image on the front.

    From others reporting back, you would lose anything over £100 (I assume someone in this position has tried to reclaim the following month?)..

    Instore apg is different as you can resubmit the receipt next month.

    As long as you have claimed your £100 this month, then you could preload your account up to £100 of sharpies for next month too (buy now while glitching, claim next month). However, remember that as you place a new order, one of the older ones disappears as it only retains the three most recent shops - so you would need to factor in spending your vouchers somehow before they expire then leaving your 2/3 APGs for next month. You also need to leave room for any apg generated by your "normal" shop when you spend your vouchers.
