    My store refused my PAGs, they wouldn't even scan on SS. Was told by an SA they don't go through for multis, been like that for 6 weeks! No it hasn't. Had to pay cash as was in hurry. Anyone else had issues. SA said it was also an email from Head Office today as well???

    Friendly sa showed me an email they had in their folder A4 size they have by the till for their use for dos and donts

Evidence from many of us would suggest this is the case. However, it probably just relies on the staff noticing and refusing? Looks like we will have to pick our staff wisely (or try and get them through unaided on the self scan ).

    They sold off their 30ml bottles when the laws changed 19 May, so obviously I stocked up

    Given the run of offers in A (and getting in quick in case it ended early ) I have more APGs than I would prefer and it may be difficult to cash out unless we have some excellent CoS offers come up. Has anyone found a way to cash out please? I know we found that giftcards would not work, but is there another way?

    Many Thanks

    On the rare occasion I get too may APG, I now get things like tea towels, clothes etc. x

    I've found out that if you use more than 2 apg's the it'll need an SA to override. If you have to input the numbers, It'll reject the apg. If the voucher scans, as does the receipt, then all ok.

    Makes problems for wombles if barcode isn't clear.

    JUst remember.

    They'll never beat us.
