    Ive been working on a similar problem.
    If you have a Taste card the offer is 241
    So go to Ask and use your Amex card and buy £50 of gift cards. The £10 will go onto your Amex card automatically.
    Then when you go for your meal you will need to take 3 friends
    4 mains and 2 starters/desserts could be £50 so you can use your £20 wys £50 total left to pay £30 (of your giftcards)
    Or use the tastecard 241 offer and your £50 bill is now £25
    So you can go again

    Taste card - if you google there are £1 trial offers for a months membership.

    Well I tried to do a Brookside shop today but guess what?

    My T don't sell them It took me a full morning to convince myself that I needed them and then I find out they don't sell them.

    So then I had to spend the afternoon convincing myself that I didn't want them anyway

    Do we all know about this?


    New from September 2017 - 30 Hours Free Childcare for 3 and 4 year olds
    From September 2017, the Government will offer 30 hours of free childcare per week for parents of three and four year olds, to help them continue or take up employment. Guidance from the Department for Education states that you will need to meet the following criteria to be eligible:

    You earn, or expect to earn, the equivalent to 16 hours at National Minimum or Living Wage (as a minimum) for the first three months following application.
    This equates to £120 a week (or about £6,000 a year) for each parent over 25 years old or £112.80 a week (or about £5,800 a year) for each parent between 21 and 24 years old.
    This applies whether you are in paid employment, self-employed or on zero hours contract.
    Where one parent meets the income criteria above and the other is:
    Unable to work because they are disabled, have caring responsibilities or have been assessed as having limited capability to work.
    On maternity, paternity, shared parental or adoption leave, or if they are on statutory sick leave.
    Where you are in a 'start-up period' (ie newly self-employed) you do not need to demonstrate that you meet the income criteria for 12 months.
    If you are a non-European Economic Area (EEA) national, you must have recourse to public funds.
    Who will not qualify?
    You will not meet the criteria when:

    Either parent has an income of more than £100,000.
    Either parent is a non-EEA national and subject to immigration control (and has no recourse to public funds).
    What happens if a parent loses eligibility?
    You will receive a "grace period" - this means you will be able to keep your childcare for a short period.
    Once the "grace period" has lapsed, you may be entitled to the universal 15 hour entitlement.

    I often lurk on this thread, I posted a while back but it got removed because I posted a 241 pizza express code, I know understand no codes lol

    I went to B&M and Superdrug today,

    B&M I found fruit style duvet sets scanning at £1.00, the barcodes are:

    Watermelon desgin single duvet set:
    1000032231709

    Pineapple desgin single duvet set:
    1000032231709

    Pineapple desgin double duvet set:
    1000032231808

    Perfect for summer, you could actually use them for a summer themed picnic blanket/party table cloth.

    Superdrug I got some astonish stain remover 1KG for 15p, I feel there is another wave of reductions coming on the cleaning area as a lot of things didn't have a shelf label and were being moved to another area, so keep your eyes peeled:

    Barcode for stain remover although this was labelled as 15p where as the duvets were not:
