    If I can shave a few mins off my morning routine, I hope to be able to put a tenner in on the way to work.

    As far as I know, APG results are still locked in and that hasn't changed. I have never had a voucher value change on me in over 6 years of using the APG. I have had items that have disappeared offline by the time I've checked my shop and failed to appear on the comp. but never managed to rescue them if they've reappeared online later, they've always stayed off. I have caved in though and claimed the £7 now as I certainly don't want that comp. changing - I don't think anything on it went down further in M on Wednesday - when it is comparing against currently favourable pricing that I didn't know about (not good enough for our shops) that may change. I will check the receipt again at another time and see if the value changes, however I have the voucher for the £7+ amount printed off now. I have not claimed the £4 yet - I don't see that changing and it is less to lose but I will see if the value changes by the time I come to try to claim the voucher (which could be anything up to several months away - probably more a theory) - we certainly should be on Wednesday for a Thursday shop by the time I come to recheck the receipt and try to claim the APG but I think it will remain on Monday due to first checking when Monday's data was still in the system. If the APG isn't updated until Friday (tomorrow) then I would have thought it would remain on Monday for shops done today even if they are first checked up to 28 days' time. As regards already checked receipts from today's shopping, I haven't claimed the £4 - whenever I do, we will be able to see if it changes. I don't think there will be any changes affecting it in M even if Wednesday's data replaced it - I wouldn't have sat on it if I felt it could change unfavourably.

    Meanwhile, M has triggered another £3.40 for me. Not really much that compares great, items offsetting ones that give money, but relatively large comparable bills, A cheaper by several pounds but 10% off M still leaves A's comparing items £3.40 more expensive.

    1x Jack Daniel's Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey (70cl) £15.00 £18.00
    2x Shloer Sparkling White Grape Drink (750ml) £2.50 £4.34
    1x Edinburgh Gin Rhubarb and Ginger Liqueur (50cl) £18.00 £18.00
    1x Baileys The Original Irish Cream (1l) £17.00 £20.00

    I gain £1.80 from the Edinburgh Gin but lose £1.20 from the JD and £1.00 from the Baileys; overall the three items are a net loss but not too great. The Shloer obviously loses substantially but is made up for elsewhere. Really should not have been bought as it has cost £1.90 off this potential voucher amount.

    1x Vitabiotics Wellman 50+ 30 One-a-Day (30pk) £10.00 £8.87

    Sadly, the more expensive 6 pack Hot Cross Buns (there appear to be some at 50p in A) are not comparing against M at £1.

    1x ASDA Baker's Selection 6 Hot Cross Buns (6pk) £1.00 N/A

    I am holding out for a change to £1 vs £1 if I leave this receipt and don't claim the APG now - however I do not think it will change.

    Fortunately, the puddings that this website presumably thinks are rude (and I'm not changing that!), even though there is no such thing existing outside of the minds of other human beings, are not comparing against M with M outside of the weight range. Or maybe they have just missed the product in M altogether, in which case I can't argue.

    1x ASDA Spotted !!!! Sponge Puddings (2x95g) £1.25 N/A

    I feel all naughty now.
