    Morning all. Can I ask about the yoghurt I've seen mentioned. I've managed to get some T mags and see a £1 coupon but there's mention of it being free. It seems to be £1.50 - is this a comparison 2f£2 with W or something else? TIA

    Morning all

    Gutted I can't quite join in properly this time. My OA has flared up so except for DD3's chauffeur lifts to work and back Friday I was in too much pain to drive for petrol.

    And I needed it before trip back to Surrey to help DD1 with the new flat reason why I'm suffering as have overdone it loads helping to prep for painting.

    I did manage to stop at a station on way but couldn't persuade Mr TS we should do tenner a fill. So £40 in one go. my muggle fill yielded 500 points...

    Did better with a little food shop while here and got 1000 points. But unfortunately mr ts's little run around is sat at home with DD3 who doesn't drive and a not full tank.

    Has anyone had any problems getting a clothes refund onto a gift card please? (No receipt.) I've just gone to a different Sainsbury's and they refused to do this and said I had to exchange. I have done that now and have a receipt showing this but the last time I did this, ages ago now, I had no problem. I can't find information online about it on the S website.

    Evening peeps.

    After posting the deal, I finally managed to a Rituals stand in Debenhams, only to be told that Rituals had made a mistake!!

    Apparently, you can only get the foam in a Rituals store OR online. They did give me a few samples of moisturiser for the missus.

    Has anyone got from anywhere else?

    It's a no brainer....unless the petrol prices are way more expensive. Good to tie in with cashback and coupons and spending as close to £10 as you can.
    Look for purchases that you are just bringing forward .ie I know I will need cat food, coffee and petrol, so I'm not spending extra really.

    I wonder if you get a temp card today, you'll be eligible for bonus points

    Morning all!

    I forgot/temporarily mislaid my card so picked one up in store (they had loads next to the swipe and win advertising banners) and the SA said it should work (not that that's a guarantee!!) so we'll see. The points all showed on the receipts so I don't see it being a problem.

    My Elite challenge for the day - I have a large expenditure coming up and I was hoping for the collective Elite advice on how to lessen it!

    DH lost his fancy headphones on holiday and the hotel haven't responded to any of his emails (we suspect either a staff member or guest would have nabbed them straight away anyway ). The excess on our travel insurance is £100 so I'm not sure that that's the best approach. They're Bose QuietComfort 35 and they cost £329

    He needs them (or something of similar quality) for work, so now I need to figure out how to either get gift vouchers for Currys or JL for as cheap as possible, or find somewhere that JL will price match. But maybe there's another option I haven't thought of? Any purse-saving ideas gratefully received
