    on the plus side I messaged Quidco via FB regarding my dilemma regarding the broken fidget spinner and the store insisting on doing a return and then a resale.
    They asked for a screen shot of my instore receipt which I sent them.
    I got a reply today and it seems to have been adding on manually - at least its showing as confirmed and todays date

    The instore online return is not showing on my paypal account yet - not sure how long that takes or how to go about prompting them ...


    Morning all - grey and overcast - I don't know why I expected anything different

    I am not really here just yet, I am just a myth and illusion.
    The To Do list is no shorter than it was on Saturday, well much longer actually as we bought loads of half priced B & Q plants on Sunday but it rained so much nothing much got done outside ...

    One quick thing though before I get back to tackling it ...

    Quidco had the May madness promo running last month and one of the offers (on May 25th) was to spend £3 in The Works for a fidget spinner and get £3 back - you had to use a special code. OH had been ranting on about them for days so I ordered one for him.
    (I was actually going to get a 2nd one using my account but they went out of stock very quickly that day)
    I used click and collect and it showed as tracking on my Quidco activity.
    Finally went to collect it on Saturday and then realised when we got home it was broken so I took it back on Sunday assuming that they would just do a straight swap. Instead she insisted she had to do an online return and then sell me one again.
    Assume now I've lost my £3 cashback ....

    annoying isn't it

    I was going to attempt my first DB shop this afternoon
    a v s

    3 DB deos
    2 walkers crisps
    4 of the 10p sweeties (am I missing something?)

    and a few fillers

    except the printer is having a tantrum and it says it needs ink - I am just hoping that the one black ink cartridge I have will satisfy it - have to wait for OH to get back as I am not risking changing it myself

    Mine is still in tracking but no idea of the dates I am not good at monitoring these things

    My £5.00 is also tracked from the five pound shop I got the most awful green leggings Am sure I ordered black but there was too much going on to send them back

    Did anyone get anything nice They certainly send out lots of emails

    3Dogs waves from hotel room in Solihull. First night of two, in Village Hotel from January Sale. Went out to Zizzi for lovely meal last night, went to bed about 12.30 but woke up at 1.30 with terrible cramp in calves so decided to get up and catch up on here. We are at Good Food Show and Gardeners World Live tomorrow at NEC. Always look forward to this one, not only is it good for freebies, I hire a scooter so no stuggle to get around



    Good price for this, thanks shogun, I've added it to the list HERE. I've copied over lots of posts to my notes document to update when I get round to it



    So sorry to hear this aau, never easy, no matter how expected it is ♥



    Is this the mulers finished then izzey?
