    Well done. As a few of us are still waiting, out of interest, did you buy giftcards or something else?

    Many thanks

    I've just spent some time trying to sort out the Viking/nectar saga.

    I placed several orders because I had a use for the gift cards, TCB was about 12% from memory and I ended up experimenting, which hadn't been my original intention.

    My first order was for 3 GC's and some paper that I needed with the 3000 point code. All good and 3000 (bonus), 60(for the GCs) and 8 (for the paper) points awarded

    My second order was just for 3 GCs via the viking link through my nectar account which was offering 2000 points (I don't think everyone had this on their nectar account). Just 60 points awarded

    Third order. I found a new code by replacing the 3000 of the item code with 5000 which was giving 5000 bonus points. Bought 3 GCs and only 60 points awarded

    This got me thinking about the fact that I'd added an extra to my first order (the paper) so I placed a fourth order for 3 GCs, and some card I needed and the 5000 point code. 5000, 60 and 8 points awarded

    Fifth and final order. No GCs but I needed printer ink which was a bit dearer than on Amazon but in the interests of research I ordered anyway and used the 5000 code. Only awarded 82 points.

    Conclusion...........
    if you place an order just for GCs you only get the 60 points.

    If you place an order with a little something added you get the bonus points on top of the usual points.

    You can only use code once as last order didn't work but I think we knew that anyway.

    Hope that provides some sort of explanation but no guarantees.

    The first benefit (if you use wet razors) is that they are only £1 a pack, where as they should be £5 a pack. The second is, if they are not in stock, you essentially get £4 credit.

    The night before last, he was out and there was a terrible fight in the early hours outside our bedroom window. I got up and shouted for him but he didn't come and was missing all that day, until late last night. I was starting to think the worst when in he trotted as if he owned the place. Such a relief

    I was going to post about the 5000 code but it disappeared just after. But if anyone finds a code it's worth changing the bonus amount on the end of the code to see if there are any more.
