    I have been having an e-mail conversation with waitrose all week about why my husband isn't getting mailings. This morning's e-mail claims that it is only one person per household and since I get them, he can't. Anyone got proof to the contrary ?

So then one was requested for me received few weeks later.

    Originally he was the one who got sent conditional spends which we used, I started to use my card to get the my picks and then I started to get conditional spends and he hasn't had any as far as I can remember since I have been getting them except for the one from JL with his last coffee and cake mailing back in the summer. He hasn't been getting any mailings from waities even though as I said he has in the past, I just thought it is because he (we) stopped using his card...

    Yup, I got it purely for the 20% The cheapest deal possible, my RAC expires Next year, will need to compare then.
    The 6 pack of Yazoo for free a good one for an example, say you could get loads, pay £1.40 after voucher and get £2.30 evoucher back. Say you had a heap, buy approx £30 food, 20% AA off = £24, 10ish used to get £23, but cost is actually £14 for £30, less than half price.
    Maybe an extreme example, but we do make a profit on some CS things, also actual Quidco CB for insurances etc.

    Hobgoblin gold £1 bottle in As

    https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/wychwood-brewery-hobgoblin-gold-500ml-bottle-100-asda-instore-and-online-2791599

    The 20% off 4 bottles is still on in Ts, it's showing as £1.65 bottle there, I've not taken on board the finer details of the glitch but guess this will work out well on comparison if bought at Ts?

    Does that mean the goblin gold would work out 67p bottle at Ts if it compares £1.65 to £1 at As as the 20% is coming off before?
