    No, we pay 20, APG sees 30 vs 11.25 (-10% 1.12 = 10.13) so we get 19.87 (pay 13p for 3) - my rounding might be wrong, but thereabouts (4p each)

    CM66, I don't know how to do that. Is your formula the same as thepearce's?

    Spent 28p on rtc sandwich at Co-op, got a 50p moc for frozen.


    Co-op Mag:

    50p mocs for Aunt Bessies Roasts 700g/1.4kg and Pukka Pies (Chicken & Leek, and Steak & Porter Ale )

    I once had a steak and porter ale, 50p rtc, was very nice.

    December Dinner Deal

    7 items for 10:


    Turkey Breast Joint with stuffing balls

    Co op Garden Peas

    Co op Button Sprouts

    Aunt Bessies Honey Glazed Parsnips

    McCains Roasts

    Aunt Bessies 12 golden Yorkshires - currently these look like they are in a '15 for 12' pack

    Walls Mint Vienetta

    Did we find out if One Stop Shops are included in the Amex promotion?

    Otherwise we'll just have to wait until someone has a chance to try it. Last year I got loo rolls which were a good deal even without the small shop promotion. Someone posted about them on here and I was very grateful.

    Right. I've caught up now and am going to bed. Night everyone.

    Often means that Amazon was cheaper (Or worked out cheaper for them because they had prime for free delivery)! Did you check Amazon first?

    You need to fiddle with conditional formatting, I think there’s an option to add a formula (e.g. B2 > C2)

    Edit - sorry that’s not very helpful, can probably tell you more specifically tomorrow when I can remember what excel looks like, but by then I expect someone who actually knows stuff will reply

    Wonder if anyone knows how much the 500ml Disarrono is in their stores

    Remember the 3.50 back on COS

    Hooch drinks too

    No neeed to be puzzled. There are many marketplace sellers sell on both so no doubt they sometimes drop ship from Amazon stock, possibly if there is a delivery deal on?

    I cannot see it.... what is our TM telling us?

    Originally posted by Sunshinemummy
    Normally it's people asking what Savvy is telling us, as he often posts confused posts (posts that confuse other people anyway) that no-one understands.

    (That's because I am trying to be 100% accurate all the time - an underachievable I know, but it's how I think. If there is something that's not technically true, most people would still say it as, in the scheme of things, the technical incorrectness is largely irrelevant and can be ignored - the gist, that people get, is correct. With me however, I have to reword it, or word it in the first place, so that it is completely technically correct, including all caveats, which just lengthens posts and people can't see the gist or understand what I am going on about. However, all the information is there (indeed, having *all* of it there is part of the very problem - people don't need all, they just need the general idea, which works perfectly well in nearly all situations) and, probably like this post now, I understand it all as I see everything and know all the detail. Sort of. My get-out clause at the end.

    "Why don't you just post the information people need, rather than everything?" people might ask. The problem is that I don't know what people need and what they don't - using the word "need" will lead to hours of discussion - and I have difficulty identifying what is relevant and what is not, so, you just get everything! The problem is that what is "relevant" to one person is "irrelevant" to another and I suppose all pieces of information, however trivial in some instances or in most places, have their own relevance in their own context. Then, of course, it's a problem of context and me being, at least in theory, context-blind. Or most people seem intuitively to know context, whereas I have to reach it by an indirect way (or, rather, for me, a direct way as it's the way I always do it) of taking time to think about it academically. Then again, academic thought of what the context might be may be well in theory but does not translate to being able to do it, without any delay at all, in practice - which is probably why I don't hold conversations in RL in the usual way - and lack of body language to identify cues etc.)
