    Or have I got this completely wrong

    APG usage
    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

    if I have APG's to use but nothing I really need. I might buy an item of clothing or a kitchen item that were for a gift. Unfortunately I don't always select my gifts wisely and have to return item to Sada. If I've paid with an APG it gets put back onto a Gift Card.

    I did Aveeno shop this morning, which worked. APG for £7.02. £2.03 each. They only had the Oatmeal one.

    Strangely yesterday on loose veg a red onion and white onion showed on the APG. Today they did not, but noticed store had loose carrots again so tried one, and that showed. Bizarre. Other thing, this shop compared to Tossers, but when I was in Waitrose this morning the Aveeno was showing same price as Tossers but that is not picked up on the APG.

    10 items (8 different) on your receipt qualify for comparison Asda tesco
    1x Wham Raspberry Flavoured Bar (16g) £0.10 N/A
    0.2x ASDA Grower's Selection Loose Banana (order by number of bananas or select kg) (per kg) £0.14 £0.14
    1x MAOAM Giant Strawberry Stripes (1pk) £0.10 £0.10
    1x Haribo Starmix (1pk) £0.10 N/A
    1x Swizzels Refreshers Original Lemon Flavour (18g) £0.10 £0.10
    0.08x ASDA Grower's Selection Loose Carrot (order by number of carrots or select kg) (per kg) £0.05 £0.04
    1x ASDA Sage & Onion Stuffing Mix (85g) £0.15 N/A
    1x ASDA Smart Price Mushy Peas (300g) £0.20 £0.20

    just went for a cc at azda. they could not open the lockers for my order. (needs rebooting) it was a db shop they only had 2 in stock. so was rubbing my hands.
    i was assured if i went back tomorrow the order would be exactly as it was picked. i just hope the db is still comparing the same. think we have sainsbug to fall back on.
    anyway was given a £20 gc as an apology.

    Its hardly our fault if their systems are crap.

    I had a long chat with a store manager a couple of years ago. I explained target shopping and he said its not really playing the game. I told him that was exactly what it was, playing their game.
    The "chat"went down hill when I queried the price ASDA were paying for the milk they buy off my mates, in a game where the supermarkets fix the deck.
    I stick to 10 and £100 a month in any store.

    Afternoon everyone.

    Oh my what a day!!!! I am sick of repeating myself today, all day spent on the phone trying to see if I can get DS car insurance any cheaper, I have done all the online comparisons. Have been told about some local brokers who shop around for you, well it is a minefield out there with these black boxes.

    I thought the whole idea of passing your test and getting a car was about freedom, well they dont think so, poor kids.

    Well have got it down but its still so bloody expensive.

    Hey ho, thats life now I suppose.

    Im off to zumba and clubbercise, now im feeling fit again, lets see if I can manage a full class this week.
