    £10 minimum spend weekdays too now - Waitrose/John Lewis are facing hard times now that we've all discovered how low the prices are at Aldi (40% lower than Waitrose, frequently), and how good the quality is!

    "We just wanted to make you aware of a small change to your myWaitrose benefits.

    From 1 November 2016, the minimum spend to receive money off your shopping with selected newspapers from Monday to Friday will be £10. It will remain £10 at weekends as it is now.

    The titles included in the offer are The Telegraph, the Guardian, the Daily Mail, The Times and The Sun as well as The Sunday Telegraph, The Observer, The Sunday Times, The Mail on Sunday and the Sun on Sunday.

    We would like to thank you in advance for your understanding. Please do not hesitate to ask a member of staff at your local Waitrose if you have any questions."

    I'm guessing this is also due to the cost of the papers going up. When Waitrose started the offer it was probably a £1 for most broadsheets, now its closer to £2.

    My guess is that is more a reaction to increased costs I know JL / WR will have been less affected than some by changes to the minimum wage but costs are going up across the board (well done us!) and the retailers will be keen to avoid increasing prices for as long as they possibly can therefore it is the perks which will quietly go away.

    That said I think JL will continue to do pretty well - I work near the Victoria Gate development in Leeds which opens tomorrow and they have certainly made a big investment - personally I don't see where the customers are going to come from but wish them well.
