    well done savvy, i think youve brought it to our attention that yellow labels will show the multi price if there is one.
    weve all known this for reduced items, but were used to the yellow stickers not showing.
    so youve turned whoopsies showing into our favour.

    Just need to be v. careful though about competitor prices if buying other whoopsies in same shop - inevitably much more expensive if they compare from whoopsie price to competitor normal price. Maybe buy every whoopsie on mbuy. Or you'd have to split shops and buy only whoopsies with mbuys on one shop, knowing precise number to buy, with 10p sweets that don't lose (could end up costing more than the voucher back though?) or with items that don't lose against any competitor - maybe SP items that are N/A across the board - my list (when finished) may come in useful - as you won't know which competitor you are targetting (unless you literally carry around with you details of what price the competitors are on the whoopsied items). Or you'd have to know that another whoopsie, on non-mbuy being used as a 'filler', was an item not sold at a particular competitor that was favourable on the 'mbuy' product. Or may be just best to do your whoopsie shopping as normal, separating all whoopsie into a single shop, buying mbuy numbers where available, and just put that shop of 8 different items into the checker just in case it gave something back. Perhaps not put normal price items into the whoopsie shop as if you have a whoopsie comparing at whoopsie price as not on mbuy to much higher price at competitor, you'd lose any APG you were hoping for against that competitor on the normal non-whoops items. Or maybe avoid that by buying only mbuy whoopsies in one shop. Mbuy whoopsies and grocery items known to be N/A everywhere else (which may be any item N/A elsewhere, including non-mbuy whoopsies as long as they appear on the APG).

    Only gone and got another £7 due to some nice items comparing against M.

    Potential glitch on the SP Pork Pies - comparing against M at £1.00 although true price in M believed to be £1.05. Some hot dogs bought in multiple purchases comparing at nice £1.28 each against M mbuy - I don't actually know what M mbuy is as, whatever it is, its price is no good for me. I imagine it's got 2 for £2 in the system, but could be 3 for £3. I can't actually see mbuy on m.com for any Wikinger Hot Dogs. I have 550g at £1.50 for M not £1.28 (£1.28 is same price as A). I have 360g product at £1.28 - may now be £1.28 and mbuy - may be another glitch on the comp., comparing against smaller size.

    EDIT: Ha - 550g (Non-Premium) Bockwurst Style is also 360g (presumably weight absent the water or brine, whatever they are in) - no glitch, assuming there is now an mbuy on them in M.

    Roast Chicken Drumsticks look a good comp., for a womble, but looks like they may have bought wrong number for mbuy only price (bought 2 plus 1 full price for M?). Missed M mbuy - 2 for 80p - on Ginger Ale.

    That £7 is due to being pestered to go out with the family tonight, with the car, and as a result being able to stop at an A on the way directly back. I would have been nowhere near an A without this journey. At least it has paid a little for the food.

    Cadburys Retro do not show on the apg even though they are on A website just in case anyone was looking to do an AvT

    On a brighter note I found a glitch
    1 oykos greek style strawberry yougurt ( 4 x 110g )
    1 oykos greek style pina coco yogurt ( 4 x 110g )
    2 for £3.00 in A

    apg shows £2.30 v £1.25 strawberry
    "2.30 v £1.25 pina coco
    apg for £2.10 plus 10% difference works out roughly 2 packs for 65phth someone AvT shop

    Hello S4mmy, lovely to hear from you and thanks very much for letting me know about this. I popped over tonight to get a few. Unfortunately they had sold out of the yogurts and also sold out of the retro £2.50 selection boxes that i was after. Never mind xx
