    As it's cheapest free you would have the t/paste and one of the Aussie (£6) free.

    Better to buy Aussie in 3's. If you'd bought 6 Aussie, they would have cost the same as 5 Aussie and the t/paste - but 2 free (£8) and £2.20 more on your APG.

    Only mix your 3 for 2's if they're all the same base price

    I must confess to being even more mean - I often take a flask of tea out in the car with me.

    It's very handy for all those moments where you just fancy a few sips of something hot to keep you going, especially if you're doing the rounds of library plus various shops.

    And yes, people watching is great fun, especially in A's car park.

    T's half price stationery - some offers end tomorrow 13th, some on 19th.

    Presumably they'll either be further reduced or removed from sale, I'm hoping for the former but SA said they have been known just to remove them completely.

    Organic veg is 342, this is also coming off the rtc but at the reduced price, just had lots of carrots and a cauli for 88p.

    Managed to get out in a dry spell but the wind is picking up again already, ready for tonight's storms.

    The Telegraph has an interesting offer - I cant get a clean link so you might have to google this.

    If you take out a new subscription to Telegraph premium annually you also get Amazon Prime included - I think they give you a code so you can renew your membership when its due.

    You also get as part of your subscription Telegraph rewards. I think this incudes Gourmet society membership which gives you 50% off meals (apart from black-out periods like December and Saturdays for most places) much like The Taste club

    Also there are film previews, mostly places like cineworlds midweek, cities.

    Lots of subscribers only competitions

    Free hot drink in the afternoons, weekdays in Debenhams

    Plus masses of other offers and discounts which update all of the time

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/rewards/offers/retail/
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/rewards/offers/dining/
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/rewards/offers/culture/

    So if you live/work/study in a city - maybe eat out in chain restaurants a couple of times a month midweek, have a cineworld close by and a Debenhams you walk past - and the time to read a daily newspaper plus you buy loads of stuff from Amazon - this is the best offer for you .

    Its £100 a year (which works out at £2 a week so good value in itself) Amazon prime is £79 in itself plus what you save using the Gourmet card and having a coffee in Debenhams (rather than the usual places) - if this is your lifestyle its a massive saving to get a subscription

    I refuse to buy 'Let it Snow' cards at Xmas for that very reason.

    oo that was quick - I've got an estimated date of the 12th but no sign yet - mind you I still have to pick up my order so maybe that will trigger it.

    No reply yet as to the 2 orders for £10 amazon email but I am still hopefull.

    Just having a look at the website and general and there are 3 pages of printable vouchers for various places including some 241 breakfasts - going out for breakfast is far nicer than going out for dinners
