    Well 8 draws, and 2 x 3 M&S vouchers.

    Amazon....Can you not put 'add on' into the search bar, then select Amazon Prime items, then in price order?
    Edit: yes, you can.

    I don't think you would would you, because it's a category wide offer at T so the APG system wouldn't be able to work out the 25% discount (there's also different prices in the T offer)? I guess the system would either compare against T at the straight T offer price x6, without the 25%, or might even fail to compare at all against an attempt to compare against the T offer number. I might be wrong though - you should speak to someone on the APG team at HQ to see if they know.

    I don't know but this made me laugh.....My imagination of you presenting an APG for 73 Asda staff would have a heart attack...You'd certainly get an audience....

    Strangely enough, it was my biggest APG that gave me my favourite SA years ago and made all my shopping with glitches and fairly big vouchers that much easier afterwards. It was before I even knew about glitches and thought straight 10% was good. My biggest voucher was a genuine 10% cheaper comparison with an electric toothbrush that was a lot cheaper elsewhere and gave me a very big voucher. The SA asked how I'd got it so I said. After that one, my glitch vouchers, which actually weren't as big as the toothbrush difference, seemed much smaller in comparison and accepted without query.

    I think that nifty Excel formula someone did was on the lost spreadsheet. I have tried to replicate it but am not sure I have the APG formula right. Are we being paid 21p to take away the Benefit sets please?!
