    I don't normally get magnums...I actually prefer the Majestic's in Iceland but my the coconut one's are now right up there as one of my favourite ice cream things ever.

    Oddly enough I wombled a 160 nectar pointer on the car parker for Judes - so £1 off and 160 points towards the Pizza Express summer spectacular .... very tempting


    Check your emails from Judes ice cream this morning as they include a £1 MOC - it looks like a normal print off as many as you need coupon.

    These are on offer in Waitrose 342 so if your store stocks them and you have three £1 MOCs they work out at a very reasonable price and they would make a good addition to a £10 shop for a free newspaper and fee coffee.

    Actually that is all you would need - 3 Judes, coffee and newspaper

    Also Waitrose have the shloer on offer - 241 £1.99 and its on shopimum buy one get one free - cant figure out if you need to buy 2 bottles or 4 ....

    has anyone else got this offer on their Nectar webpage? Its only on my nectar - not OHs so it must be targeted.


    I am trying to load the offer onto my card and it wont load - might have to try doing it via the app later.
    When I click on it, it just goes to a page where the brands are listed.
    You have to swipe three times so your sainsbobs shop must count as one swipe and then there are 450 places to choose from.
    Obviously trying to spend the least amount possible but 450 brands are going to take some wading through


    How to get this offer
    1.Click 'Load to card' to opt in
    2.Make a purchase and swipe your Nectar card at 3 different Nectar brands before 26 July 2017
    3.Collect 1,000 points
    4.Points will be awarded within 28 days of offer expiry



    Terms and Conditions


    Click 'Load to card' to Opt-In to this offer. For a list of brands you can swipe your Nectar card at visit: https://www.nectar.com/brands. Shop with at least 3 different Nectar brands between 06/07/2017 - 26/07/2017 and swipe your Nectar card to be eligible for this bonus point offer. Points will be awarded within 28 days of offer expiry.

    Both of us have the swipe 8 times and get 100 points offers - annoying when I've already done todays shops - after the cashback bits I could have got 3 extra swipes for the remaining 3 items I had.
    We also have odd things for extra points - I've got dole pineapple and OH has Heinz serious sauce which are both on offer and both useful items plus they give us an extra swipe and an extra receipt to scan.
    All these offers I've been able to active no problem

    So after 13 months it's nearly done and in true mar style lots of pennies saved and muscles gained

    This was taken last night with the hailstones so isn't the best picture

    Wondering what a fair price would be for a 30ft x 3ft double skinned brick wall would be. About 1200 bricks, price to include cutting a concrete drive and putting founds in. I am supplying the bricks.
