    I can't find my receipt at the moment to show you the Head &Shoulder still working against Morrison and Tesco. I got Itchy Scalp, Men Total Care and 2in1 Citrus Fresh. If I find it later, I'll post it. Moved into the 3 for 2 in my store are Dove women deodorants but no good comparison and Elvive shampoos but again no good comparison.

    Weight Watchers frozen meals - 63p in M. You may be lucky if you have these - it may well be too late for those Ms that have changed SELs - these look to me like RTCs that went on over the weekend. I only had one in my store and that was a single unit of stock that I seemingly only had because it had a slightly damaged pack.

    There is also at least one product from the WW signature range on 78p in M. I had more stock of those (maybe stores will bring more out so perhaps it's not too late? - just random as to whether you have them one day - may have been there the day before you visit, completely no trace when you visit but back there with SEL the day after your visit). I think there is almost certainly at least one further version in M that I don't have, possibly two further versions.

    Most of them are on the list under Avs M (we'll be hoping). The one version I don't have is under 'buy in M' as this one appears to be exclusive to M (the clue being msm claiming "Unavailable" in M - which is a sure sign that M have it as otherwise it would always have been "---" from the outset - it is, in my view, absolutely definitely on 78p in M even though I have no sight of it or any indication of it in my Ms whatsoever).

    You may have a very good chance of finding some of these products in M if your store has full price showing - so, if you see WW in your shelves with full price, check to see what it really is. And, for everyone else, we hope you're not shopping in an APG store.

    I did think of the TCB Snap & Save offer on a recent WW meal (couldn't remember which one it is) but, typically and sadly, it looks like that has expired now. It was 75p back, which would not have been paid on a 63p purchase in M (T&Cs have been saying no cashback if it is more than the original purchase amount) - it would have to have been claimed via overpayment in A and APG vs M but APG probably wouldn't have RTC price until the update (if it catches any of them in M at all, I did have some, from only 2 stores but maybe mine is that rare store out of 25, far beyond the APG, that only has a unit of stock because no-one wanted to buy a damaged pack). In any event, the TCB is off now but still good prices - perhaps you want to wait on them to see if they go even lower? - on RTC (very good chance I feel if you have full price SELs and if what you have is actually on RTC). Best of luck!

    Thank you. I do think those Snack Bars are going to start to fail sometime tomorrow - in my view they should have been failing already but APG caught 50p last Wednesday instead of 87p (it may even have been on a tied result and take lowest price, we'll never know) but I would imagine the stores will now be on 87p SELs. You don't know - it could be just all three stores I've seen in the past week, but 87p has been showing online now as well.

    The Nibbles pouches are still on 50p in M, and have remained on 50p throughout. They have disappeared from one of my stores entirely now and only a few versions left for me at the other, so they may be a bit hit or miss this time but probably should still find all of them that I believe M has (M probably does not have Orange or White Chocolate from memory) from the APG using more stores than me now but they could be missing one in their stores. Depends then if the SEL has been removed or is haphazardly still there saying OOS as to whether it has gone complete no trace for them or not (they compare for up to 7 days on OOS SELs, but I suspect are working against M staff who are trying to remove SELs of items the individual store no longer has).

    I'd imagine Spring Greens are likely to go to 68p for M soon.

    From the two that I actually had (and then one of those almost OOS), I now think that there are at least eight WW frozen meals on RTC in M.

    Who wants to try the seven that A have, together with a Flump?
    And, do you try now and hope that they had them at RTC price last Wednesday, when I either had nowt or had full price on everything so was unaware of any RTC or, the RTC may not even have started then (does Google cache give any clue on any of them as to what date the M price may have gone OOS on the M side of msm?), do you wait and hope the collectors had them on Monday and that some or all of them hadn't disappeared entirely from their stores by then? And, if they have still got them, that they don't have them in mainly 'full price SEL' stores.

    I don't know - maybe I am being too pessimistic as I have only visited two stores but maybe they are available better more widely? Or may depend on whether some of the collection stores were a bit tardy in putting the RTC SELs on and, effectively, starting to clear them at a different time. Some stores (a minority?, who knows?) may have yet to change the SELs from full price on random versions, no good if full price SEL is in collection store - we want them to catch the RTC SEL but not for the products, because of that, to have completely gone. Different results are certainly possible for different ones, depending on what they had and what SELs they had for each one they had.
