    Not sure which B/C you meant izzeyb....but, here are both

    After Dinner Mint....... 025500 157517
    Black/Liq.................... 025500 157517

    So they are/were both the same B/C

    Funnily enough when I just googled the blackcurrant/liquorice flavour, it is showing as After Dinner Mint

    Sorry to hear how you feel Mrs Mac....and Di

    I'm not going to advise because I know how your job can impact on your well being, your home life and family.

    The only thing I would say is, not to rush into doing anything.....take your time. Even making the decision "to delay the decision" puts you back in control. And sometimes working dynamics can change quickly.

    And our aau......so sorry to hear about gran I filled up a bit when snap called you 007. There's such a lot of warmth and affection on this thread for people we have never met.

I don't think I have ever been so mad in my life.
    I hate unjust in any form. I will hang fire, for now who knows what's around the next corner?
    Aau1 I'm sorry for your loss and I'm sorry that I'm whinging about days off whilst you are all in mourning, I'll go and have a word with myself and be grateful that I have a job.
    Enjoy your day all

    I've re read my coupon since you posted mhoc. I nearly threw it away as I thought it was to spend at their "evening" only. It has been resurrected and I will buy socks

    Thank you

    •Renewal proof required via email or post (at customers own cost) within 14 days and is non returnable

    Just had a look at the bumf AA have sent Errant son and no actual paperwork yet with a quote yet

    and I had a reply from Errant son - van is 2007 so too old for the Groupon deal and possibly too old for greenflag as well depending on the date of registration

    Might need to do some ringing around ...

    I got the hairdryer I wanted from superdrug for £36.67 and the £18.25 cashback is at the retailer decision stage and the expected date is August 20th - I put it on the calendar so I can start the query about it not being paid in September

    On the plus side I raised a query about Tesco Direct purchase from January not tracking and its now showing but with todays date and its due date is September so I can raise both queries then

    I've also got a random 2p from a Superdrug purchase in December which does not seem to be happening either - I went back a few pages last week on my Q activity and found this and the Tesco direct one so I raised queries on both.

    Good morning.
    Has anyone received their quidco cash back yet from super drug. I bought aftershave for dh and £33.75 tracked 91 days ago, am I just being impatient?

    Afternoon all. Nearly Friday teatime
    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.
