    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.

    Just realised A didn't pick up the 5 sweets for 1 on my receipt. I might try for a 2 gc as overcharged if they don't scribble on my receipt which I'm sure they will.

    I think Ive lost the plot.

    I needed to make a trip to town today and noticed that Mr TM had a 5 off wys 25 at M&S.

    I just went in with gay abandon and spent an entire 25 ....I didnt even have a list...I just picked up random things without thinking and put them in my trolley.

    It was weird

    I even bought one of those in store baked loaves for 1.90 which was delicious.

    NIVEA Smooth Skin Gift Set
    Works out 2.75 each

    So Pay 24 for 3 and get a 15.75 APG

    Unless this is a simple thing like a typo mistake in the OP. I can only see a.com showing the 8 pack so the description appearing on the APG should be the same as that. It seems to me there is a mistake in the OP and it has been copied as (6x330ml) but in fact it's 8x330ml. Comparing against 8x330 at M, which obviously wasn't good enough price - albeit a lot cheaper than A - for me to notice it.

    Interesting though. I think the OP has accidentally copied it incorrectly? Thus just causing me much pondering wondering if it is an eight pack rather than 6.

    A puzzle for you

    A piece of string is attached to the corner of a cube. The cube is suspended by the string and lowered into a bucket of water so that exactly half of the cube is submerged. What shape is made by the intersection of the cube with the surface of the water?

    Two Irish men were sitting in a pub when the Tour de France came onto the television. The two lads watched the cyclists for a while when one asked:

    Why do they do that? Go on them bikes for miles and miles, up and down the hills, round the bends. Day after day, week after week. No matter if it’s icy, raining, snowing, hailing . . . why would they torture themselves like that?

    It’s all for the money, says the other. The winner gets half a million pounds.

    I see, says the first, But why do the others do it?
