    Waiting for a Shoppix pp payment, however long does it take?
    Or has something gone wrong?!

    Last week I applied for £5 shoppix, £5 from receipt pig and £26 from COS so that was an exceptional week

    I never return anything in A but it may be easier after it's been used?

    This works well in S as well, especially with badly fitting clothes, swap one size for another and then you come away with a "clean" receipt.

    But having said that I cant remember the last time I did a return.

    Good morning everyone.

    Youngest back at school today, I can put the house back together and get sorted now.

    Hes quite pleased with himself today, hes got quite a few war wounds to show off to his friends, he looks like he has been in a fight

    He and his friends went on a bike ride on Sunday, and his friend stopped dead, in front of him, my DS2 ran straight into the back of his wheel and flipped over the handlebars, (think he was trying to do a TM OH ) he has smashed the side of his face up, all his hands, both sides (how) and his knees, no broken bones though thankgod.

    Morning all. Heard from my Sis in Antigua at midnight our time. Apparently they have been told to go to their rooms as soon as the siren sounds and they are under curfew. They have been told that they will miss the brunt of Irma and it has been downgraded to a Tropical - I don't think so.

    It will be a worrying few hours

    we were pondering on whether its possible to do store returns with or without a receipt without raising suspicions.
    Also doing returns before or after using APGs in Asda ....

    Good morning all....

    Rocky...I hope the wedding is able to go ahead in some form,tomorrow wasn't it?
    I've never experienced a full blown hurricane but over the years we've been in a few tropical storms mostly in St Lu but we did hit a bad one in Jamaica many years ago that delayed our flight by 2 days...
    We have friends in Antigua so can only hope they are well prepared....and thoughts go out to Cbackwards and VT who know the area very well too.....

    I fancy a glitch....not toiletries obviously but the aveeno is tempting...is the mullers just a good comparison or as yet untested glitch wise?
    frugal October...£45.59 of £40 food shopping spend for the 2 of us!
    Jan £41.60/£40
    Feb £54.58/£40...gave up this month 15/2
    Mar £37.02/£40...lots of help via a gift card and vouchers
    May
    2017 toiletries 131 out 101 in ...£14.92 spend

    Morning.

    UNTESTED

    If the Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion (300 mls) is still on 3 for 2 in Asda (£6.50 each), it should compare to Waitrose half price offer of £3.62 (offer on until 3rd October).

    http://www.waitrose.com/shop/DisplayProductFlyout?productId=407905

    This would give the best comparison yet for Aveeno and works out at £1.10 each

    Morning All, just to say that Voucher Codes 'Windfall Wednesday' has a good one on today, it's spend £15 at Matalan and get a free £10 Amazon code. I am planning to try it with a click and collect as I don't live near at Matalan but I'm not sure this would work.


    Does anyone know if the COS Propercorn that is currently £1.49 in Tesco and has the £1 cashback on it is actually comparing to Asda £1? I haven't ventured into COS/BG before and an anxious of buying a stash of overpriced popcorn with no payout. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    DGS age 5 ran into a fence last year. No bike involved, he was self-propelled. Breezy day, coat open, hands in pockets, arms raised so that the open coat made 'wings', head down, zooming around, crashed into fence.

    'I was being a jet' he said.

    A&E mended the jet with butterfly plasters.

    I have a lovely butter dish from Matalan, flat base, domed lid with knob, very classic, in white, around £3 I think it was.

    Have also had curtains in the past, in the sale, good quality, excellent value.

    Not so keen on their clothes for myself though.

    Morning peeps....Hope you are all doing just fine.....

    Really Really do not understand how heating oil prices can jump so much in a short space of time.....When petrol/diesel prices have not moved at all for months....

    This is the heating oil price for 1000 litres on the 28/6 £355:95.... Today it is £414:23...That is a jump of £58:28 in 10 weeks....Am I being cynical in thinking that prices rise when demand is higher....Robbing Barstewards.....

    OMG, I'm rich! Silver in the hair, Gold in the teeff, Crystals in the Kidney, Sugar in the blood, Lead in the butt, Iron in the arteries and an inexhaustible supply of natural gas! I never thought I would accumulate such wealth!!
