    Well at last today I managed to get some Asda stewed steak tins
    Ordered 10. Email told me I had 10. But when I got there, there was only 5 argh. I said to the girl wheres the other 5, it says I should have 10 tins. She offered to go back into the store to see if there were any. I said dont bother. Happened to me the other day and the girl tht day came back with beef stew tins. I said just refund me 5 tins. So hopefully she will do that.
    One day they will get the order right

    Just watching Man V Food, he has to eat more than 9 pounds of food including steaks, mushroom sauce and chips in 40 minutes to win the T shirt and $100.

    How do people even think about eating that much

    He didn't manage it, but it did look like he managed about 2/3 of it

    it does work, you must have entered an incorrect digit. always scan the receipt if you can. i entered 4 apgs, 2 receipts scanned and 2 i input the digits. went through ok, no sa assistance needed.
    edited
    having re-read the latter bit of your post, i know what you mean. i get occasionally "value not met" i think its on certain random items. i avoid buying kippers that are pre packed but sold by weight.
    lots of peeps dont get this message, but i suspect like me you only pay a few pence for shopping the rest being apgs. so we get the message more often.

    We went to PEx to use up a few N3ctar vouchers - how come it has cost me more for my "free" pizzas than if I had just bought Goodfellas or Chicago Town to eat at home? Oh yes, Little Anons were not keen on just having water so wanted a drink ... but they are worth it .

    If anyone has JackF nearby, they have large Chicago Town stuffed crust pepperoni pizzas disguised under the XtraValue label (no box but they have the black tray) at £1 each .

    Great find on the "entering APG" manually on SS. I can confirm this worked yesterday. Although the first one didn't, I typed in the APG code and scanned receipt, it called a SA - possibly due to be greater than £20?
    The second one, I manually typed the APG number and manually typed the receipt transaction number, no issues at all. Value was approx £10.
