    all,

    Worry not as the Superdrug 50% flash rate for all online sales is legit and runs until 3pm today (17/03/2016).

    You will be able to make use of that rate on Sale items too... So happy days

    However, do not use your Superdrug points card to make that purchase or use any discount codes during your purchase as that will invalidate your cashback.

    -

    @rickztp1 - Your purchase should still track into your account within 48 hrs, and not be affected by the fact that you are re-directed to the PayPal website to authorise that payment.

    If that does not track in, don't worry as you can get that manually tracking by raising a claim here: https://www.quidco.com/new-enquiry/

    This will get that showing in your account, in your claims tab here: https://www.quidco.com/activity/claims

    And that'll be processed, whilst you will be kept informed of it's progress via the notifications on your account.

    If the re-direction is to taking the PayPal app rather than the website, do let us know.

    Thanks,

    Joseph

    I don't know whether A's SP apples are increasing in price today (or probably tomorrow?) as I noticed they were now showing 80p this morning on a.com but still 50p on msm (although the 80p has now worked its way through to there). This was just at the time when I was going to buy some. I went to A this morning, to see if they still had the 'old' 50p price up as my hope for a GC or else replace them with a pack of Cadbury's Chocolate Puddings. I found the apples still saying 50p. However, by that stage unfortunately they were still going through at 50p this morning(). No problem though as I still got my apples for 50p although they may soon be going up in price - or maybe this is a ploy to get me to buy more of them, which they've managed to get me to do.

    Maybe tomorrow's price for delivery - in one sense, I hope they do shoot up in price now that I've stockpiled them (although I hope I can find apples cheaply whenever my packs now run out).
