    Something else to add to a potential Waitrose list

    http://www.alodrink.co.uk/tryalo/tryalowithwaitrose/

    Only one bottle in my store had a try me free collar but I don't think you need it. You just scan the receipt and fill in the form, upload the receipt scan and you can either have a cheque or have your £2 put straight into your paypal account
    Its in the chilled drinks section

    So
    alo £2 (TMF)
    ocean spray wholeberry £3 (TMF and/or shopimum)
    coffee £2 free
    magazine £2 free
    weekend newspaper £2 free

    that's £11 to start with even before you work on what else to get to use your conditional spend voucher

    used 7 apg's on ss today (2 shops 3/4) took me ages to put numbers through but all worked ok.
    then on to manned till, i fold my apgs with receipt inside it so they are in order, why do some sa's insist on mixing them up i gave him 4 and he shook the receipts out of the apgs mixing them up. i said you do know you have to get the correct apg with the right receipt. he said he knows which one. i seen him scan the wrong one and of course 2 were rejected. a lot of messing about but got it down to one. i said just give me everything back and i can check the receipt for which one did not go through.
    outcome was, i paid £4.50 for my shopping instead of £1.10
    not so bad as i got the 2 beers on there awaiting £3.30 cos cb
    end of outing my wife had used 1 apg (bless her) i used 10 successfully. totalling about £24. not bad for litter.
    still got the one £3 odd to use

    Hobgoblin gold £1 bottle in As

    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?

    Also in waitrose I got for Greenjim - these were on an end of aisle display and nowhere near the correct sections - cereal on the top shelf and toms on the bottom, with an assistant I would never have found them

    Special k 500g GJ - £1.49 but 70p cashback

    Cirio chopped toms x4 GJ and PYO - £1.77 but 90p cashback
    ( and not the whole toms like I nearly did)

    Good Evening

    I hardly ever find wombles at Sada, maybe 1 per month if I'm lucky but I do find quite a few in Lidl's carpark which is nowhere near Sada

    Neither me nor DH get any Waitys conditional spends. I had one set about a year ago but nothing since

    Press key in code
    Enter apg bc press enter
    Scan receipt or enter receipt bc if you have to
    Go to payment screen.
    No sa needed I paid ok.

    yes, it was me last night.
    And yes I should have put it on the Waitrose list instead of getting my carton from Sainsbobs last night

    I suppose I could still get a carton for OHs shopimum from waitrose even if I cant do the tmf again - still not too bad for £1 a litre and they have a good use by dates

    Think there are a few OHs that like goblin gold.

    I won't be going as Mr TS gets free beer now, don't ask there was a big upfront cost, well hopefully an investment.

    PS if ever you are down this way I'll get him to take you for a pint.
