    EDIT: (I think they probably are, as I seem to think someone has mentioned that some 3 Minute Miracles are in the 3 for 2, but you probably just wanted other ones. EDIT 2: Also you couldn't mix 4 ones with 4.50, without losing out to the 'cheapest free'. Ignore me - I see why you stuck to 4 ones now!)

    Dislike. Why don't they keep that on its own shop?

    As for the receipts at my stores, they have been rather poor of late. I had a few earlier where they bought 6 or 7 different items. People sticking to the same version of products bought in duplicate - I had one that could have been good (I will never know) - but, after the carrier bag and the other non-grocery are excluded, just 7 items. Why couldn't they just add a flump? Yesterday was so rubbish with them - most receipts turned out to be one or two items short of 8 and then one that did qualify - more than 10% cheaper. Hooray. "Told you so - more than 10% cheaper!"

    I then had one really really long receipt but all that lot resulted in just 75p - the receipt was so long I would feel embarrassed at using it for such a small amount and so, very unusually, I chucked it. The next one, I wasn't a member of 1p club but it gave the 2p club instead. In fact, coming at the end of all that poor lot, when 2p came up I just laughed - it was just hilarious.

    Today is a similar story with most of the few receipts, people just not buying enough. Or, with all those good items glitching, people buying other items on the 5 for 3 soups and getting them appearing at 60p each and then the whole shop ending up no voucher. I did get one good one though - Morries cheaper. A number of items on offer a pound cheaper than at A - none of them fantastic for straight 10% off M - anything good is already on the M list - that tipped the balance and gave a voucher for nearly 6. Hooray. First good return in a while - been relying on my glitch shops giving me the vouchers back instead of the wombles.

    Definitely worth going today though and finding the almost 6 womble as, with the APG on my own shop back, that is more than the original cost of my shop.

    There is an alternative of Crosse & Blackwell Best of British against T - but only three varieties should be comparable for that - and, again, T 4 for 3. Do not mix with Baxters in the same shop as it is a different offer.

    Crosse & Blackwell tins (same three but need four in total) should also work against M, one version at least worked for me (as I just stuck to one due to personal taste). Or Batchelor's Cup a Soups (as long as M has them) - again keep separately, they can't be mixed together in the same shop.

    My SAs (insofar as I go to a staffed till) must be wondering about my strange shops - just one tin of Heinz and four completely different products. Or - why buy one Cadburys product and then mix with four Black Jack sweets? Black Jacks only compare against M.
