    Good morning beautiful people & merry Christmas!!

    I had a horrid experience with an apg from a cashier it was only 7 something and she was scrutinising the receipt saying how did you get 7 from this!! The lady behind was getting irate and she called over a supervisor who happily pricessed the apg. The cashier wanted to keep the receipt, she was not at all happy with me.

    I have been taking the p ... ounds out of my S N3ctar purchases by returning my ill fitting electricals and other items. The pattern has held true, where over 40 items they have been returned to the (... a ... payment card, apart from one return that they insisted had to be on a GC, and 40 transactions refunded on GC, apart from one paid in cash .

    Just a few more to go.

    Lessons learnt for next time? Buy items over 40 to increase the chance of a cash/payment card return, see what is available in different stores (the smaller the better ) to increase the stores for returns - and buy items from different categories as it doesnt really matter if you are returning it anyway .

    Hello everyone, hope you're all well. Just popping in about the Baileys offer at Mossies for 10 with it brand matching at To$co. I realise (according to a post on the dark side) that 1 or 2 bottles works fine.

    Has anyone bought more than 2 of them from To$co and have the brand match work? I'm 95% sure it should work but realise that there's a 2 per limit at Mossies so I was wondering whether the brand match system recognises this max 2 per transaction? I doubt it but thought I would ask just in case.

    I have a 10 off coupon wys 50 at To$co so was planning on purchasing 5 bottles from there plus fillers, total 60ish, minus 10 for brand match and then 10 off with voucher. If no reports then I will give it a go on Sunday/Monday.

    Hope you all have a great Christmas.

    Compared to the 10% cheaper price 2.19 more

    Sorry 3dogs I have more new comparisons from last night, all seem to make things cheaper again!

    Dove happiness 4 v 2.50 T 92p each
    Impulse unque mini gift set 4 v 2.25 T. 70p each
    Luscious lips 5 v 2.62 T. 69p each
    Nivea Xmas kisses 3 v 1.37 T. 23p each

    My maths could be a little out but I've written what I think they work out at now if someone would like to double check my maths x
