    That is what I suspected. Can you confirm the names of 8 different ones?

    EDIT: Actually, I think it is going to be six different ones at 63p each, which you probably have and thought that was all of them, plus two others, maybe even three, at 78p each.

    Hi gang just need to bend an ear.......
    Hubby has had an offer for his personal injury and he is quite angry with it as he had a figure in mind.
    I am a lot more cautious as any money would be a godsend at the moment but he is not yet better after nine months and had a little op last week so he is now going down the physio route again. My question is, is ther a protocol to follow or do we just put up - I dont want them to offer less but dont know the right thing to do ...??? xxxx
    Originally posted by wendyak
    Is he almost back to how he was before the injury? Or is he almost as well as he will get? If not, how can they offer an amount, as the total length of recovery is still not known. So unless it was an interim amount, it sound like they are just trying to get out of it on the cheap. Are you getting legal assistance with this/no win no fee?

    What is the appeal of double up?

    If you actually want something between £10-40 fine, but you couldn't buy say an Xbox could you.

    Is there any way to buy more expensive items with double up.

    I'm getting a bit nervy about my N balance, and would like to reduce it, but don't really need anything, except a new PC/Lappy.

    I have made a few successful 3bay sales with fees capped at £1. However the name of the buyer includes a reference number and name and the address is a unit rather than private address. Is this legitimate or something to worry about? P4ypal has the same address and is marked as verified. I will be sending tracked and with appropriate compensation level.

    Many thanks

    Wendy...it's really up to you,but there is no harm in sending a counterclaim in a well constructed letter if you feel that the amount has been undervalued.

    As long as you still have the option to fall back on the original amount offered I see there being no harm in asking....or challenging

    Whats the saying...don't ask...don't get.

    If you feel up to it the worst they can say is no.

    CoS heads up. Propercorn Perfectly Sweet 90g are 80p Cashback each in T up to 12 times.

    T £1.60 v M £1 on a number of flavours, untested and this flavour is not on MSM for M.

    If I recall various popcorns just appear as POPCORN on the T receipt so be careful not to buy the wrong ones ... (but need confirmation this flavour compares/how it appears on the receipt).

    finally found the Chicago Town pizza, £1.50p in Asda, coupon didnt scan at SS till (but my APGs did), so SA helper said go to Customer services
    they were a bit puzzled, but decided as each voucher was worth £3 (ahem!) I could have both pizzas for one voucher!
    Just waiting for DD to report on what they were like
    that shopping trip cost me -21p. x

    SP Pork Pies did correct to M price of £1.05 later in the week last week - they were no longer comparing against what I thought was the Large Pork Pie at £1. This receipt turns up from last Saturday:

    1x Asda SmartPrice ASDA Smart Price 4 Large Snack Pork Pies (440g) £1.10 £1.05

    Fwiw, that £7 APG that I claimed last Thursday (when I think we were still on the previous Monday) continued to return the same results, incidentally now with the SP Pork Pies at M £1, when I re-entered the receipt at the end of the week. Glad I first checked it earlier - although, to be fair, last Thursday may have got the previous Monday's data all day and may remain on that whenever checked later (up to 28 days from that Thursday to perform a first check). APG Wednesday update last week was later than usual and seems to have happened at some point on Friday. I don't know whether the £4 one, that I checked on Thursday but didn't claim, has changed - I will check it again later and find out - though I've never yet had any results change from what they were when I first got them, including never managing to bring back to life items that weren't on the comp. when it was first checked and should have compared that have reappeared online later.
