    Morning paw sniffers

    My inbox is full of Advent junk this morning.......fur coat and no knickers. In other words, tantalising promises but no substance.

    However I did receive my 20 Amazon code for the perfume I bought the other week through Vouchercodes....Allbeauty I think it was

    I also bought the 5.50 Green and Blacks chocolates in T yesterday....like you DD, time is running against me these days....please don!!!8217;t analyse that phrase savvy

    Another thank you goes to Seren for her fab picture posts every morning. I used to pester Wacky for her Christmas ones

    Blinking T - mine has removed all its Yazoo multipacks in favour of Xmas stock. Massive search inc 2 SAs yielded none, but one did give the reason for the disappearance. No Fage splitpots either.

    I was the only person in there this morning pushing an empty trolley around.

    On the upside, I do seem to have rather a lot of popcorn...

    So it finally happened.. I bumped into a fellow Elite, or so I'm guessing....
    I told the gentleman that's going to be too large a APG when he had 3 X B & H and was raiding the 10p sweets. I forgot to mention to him. Grab the popcorn as the shop compares to T and COS will break even after APG..

    Anyway, now I know why I have no stock of glitches in my locals. Elite members everywhere

    Don't be getting two triggers though on a shop - only need one.

    They are in the same situation as the Tomato Ketchup crisps and the Heinz Lentil & Bacon - they are showing as "Unavailable" on a.com: if you search for them in the search box on the site, they don't get returned in any results (at least not when logged out, I haven't tried when logged in) but searching their name and "Asda" on a general search on Google brings them up such as here for example:

    https://groceries.asda.com/product/single-bars-bags/cadbury-chomp-chocolate-bar/910003083849

    They are on the site therefore, they don't come up in a search on the site but they are there, showing as "Item unavailable".

    Is there any way to do a search on a search engine for the graphic, the "Item unavailable" icon and the trolley with the cross on it, to identify all pages on which the graphic appears on a.com? Could be useful if we could identify all allegedly "Unavailable" items on the site to see if any are in other offers that we don't already know about.

    Yeah but the getting the 5 back bit doesnt start till tomorrow. You might not get the 5 back on your 2 transactions from today.
    I could be wrong though. Hope I am

    Thats why they were happy to take the details of both cards and put them through tomorrow.

    It also means I have my order placed and they can start preparing for what is a busy time for them.
