    Has anyone tried this please? The normal 250 N3ctar points per ticket offer on mym4il seems to have gone. According to the comments it seems to be V I P Vu3 Cinema for 250 N3ctar points rather than paying for normal plus an additional 250?

    https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/vue-cinema-ticket-for-250-nectar-points-worth-125-normally-valid-any-day-until-31-december-through-mymail-website-2791215?page=2#thread-comments

    Good if true as there are some good films coming up before Christmas including Ninjago and Star Wars .

    SAVVY IS THIS THE REAL PRICE IN MORRISONS PLEASE






    EDIT. looks like it is incorrect as on m.com its 1 pack and a box of eggs for £2
    Originally posted by zippydooda
    No it's not. I have 2 for £1 for several Warburtons products in M, including Giant Crumpets packs. I don't know the real prices; I just go by SELs.

    As you have identified, msm is incorrect - the offer online is a Warburtons Giant Crumpets pack (a couple of crumpets) plus a box of 6 pack Happy Eggs for total of £2() - it's taking the number of eggs is being 6 for...

    As I'd want Happy Eggs 6s to go down to £1 (which some of them have in the past), even if I bought a couple of Warburtons Giant Crumpets for full price (which I wouldn't) my guide price would be a lot lower than £2. The "saving" is off the full price of both products, although I suppose those prices could have been even worse than what they are. It seems better way to go is whoopsied crumpets and also find some cheaper eggs.

    M list is now done, except I might change my mind and add the odd one or two items on later that I've currently not bothered with. Lots of items that are on my old list from months ago at the start of the last thread will, unbelievably perhaps, still be valid and, if I ever get the chance, I may transfer some of them on the basis of what they undoubtedly will be even though I have not seen them. For example, I suspect that Beacon Light Bulbs will still be available at £1, along with all other items in the pound shop section of M that many people don't have. I will be missing items and people may find RTCs in their M that I don't have.

    The list should be good for the APG all day tomorrow (at least as long as checked before the prices update, expected on Tuesday) if they picked the items up at those prices in the first place. They may even be occasionally more generous than me.

    I think they were comparing the SP 4 pack Pork Pies (440g) against the individual Large Pork Pie (440g) from M that is showing £1 in the Savvy Buys for M on msm. Whether they still had the pork pies linked up with that item on last Wednesday's collection, which we will now still be on, I don't know.

    I don't really do price collections on Mondays these days as many offers in M nowadays change on Wednesdays. I don't have time to do full price collection on Monday anymore (or indeed on Wednesdays really - although I have got quite a lot, online is woefully incomplete, I am less so but still incomplete, more than I was before - I do have quite a lot of RTCs on the 'buy in M' list which will doubtless now have sold out of the stores over the weekend but you may be lucky and people will have lots of gardening items in total but one or two individually on RTCs that I don't have in my stores). Fwiw, I will be in an M tomorrow at some point for my bread again and will see if I have an impression of anything changing or going newly on offer - it will have several ranges of items missing though. I don't know if I will keep track of everything I have on Wednesday but may get various points in the day for very limited (compared to what they used to be) checks in M in stores that certainly don't have some ranges of items! I'll just see what I can do and now I have a bit of a list (two posts!) it's peaked up my curiosity as to what might change this Wednesday.

    Goodnight for now.

    EDIT: Somehow everyone else left early this evening and there have been no posts since I made my previous one nearly one and a half hours ago. Obviously everyone was waiting until I'd finished my list.

    Filled my coat pockets with this year's spider deterrents on my walk to Ts - lovely big fat conkers

    Im a board guide on Pie Making Moneysaving. I'm a volunteer to help the pie production & consumption run smoothly. I can help merge tastes and fillings. Any pies made are mine & are not those of other Moneysavingexperts. Im a board guide not a qualified baker and as such do not make every type of pie. If you spot a quiche or flan please report it.

    Good morning.
    Well Froctober isn't going too well we're running out of everything! Yesterday we needed Pepsi and the best buy I've found is 8x2l for £7 @ Iceland warehouse so that was yesterday's spend on Saturday we needed bacon and I buy a 4lb pack from the local butcher for £7.99 so another big spend but that will last us weeks.
    Today dh is collecting a c nc from As on his way home from work using mainly apgs which should cost £5ish but should stock us up for the rest of October so I'm hoping my spend will still come in under £50.
    Work today for me as I'm at the hospital tomorrow with a very quick catch up with FC en route, have a good day everyone.
    Froctober £50 £27.85
