    As reported on here it was showing live in settings (when you swipe down from the top there is an NFC icon with WiFi, Bluetooth etc) but kind was not working. After a frustrating time stood in T, I pressed the back of the phone and by coincidence or not it then started working.

    Can anybody tell me what NFC is to do with the phones? Worried I'll get the wrong type of android! Trying to find someone with an old spare lying around. I've ordered a free sim so I'll use that! Really quite excited. And my cokes will go to food bank unless I can get diet for Diet Coke chicken!

    Thank you

    Yes - you can switch between the 2 accounts (using the tiny little arrow on the right) - does that make sense? Ive removed the card from my first account because today Id used some Greggs vouchers treating my godchildren and went into the shop next door - paid with android and no envelope appeared. I realised I was in my first account now my new one . Now by removing the card I wont be able to make the same mistake again!
    My cokes are also going to foodbank as are all these B&H 4p gift sets as I dont need any - I just love the buzz of glitch shopping.

    Just added card and verified account and all gift cards gone or can I access them somehow

    Evening elite,

    Sorry to ask this as I'm sure it's been explained before. I am going to source an android to take part in the tap and pay thing.

    From reading back I see we can do 10 transactions a day. But is there a minimum spend? Or can I buy 10 flumps? And then must leave a minute between transactions?

    And at the risk of sounding stupid, do I just tap the phone on the reader? Or open app and tap?

    Thanks very much in advance....off to find a cheap android!

    Your giftcards are still there - just switch back to your original account (click on your name at the top of the DroidPay and select the other account).

    It seems the answer is yes, you add another Google account the same as you can do on Gmail or elsewhere and then simply switch between Android Pay accounts/emails at the top of the app. New account added, same card used, new game visible with end date of 1/1/18.

    Not tested yet but assume 10 limit is not shared. Will report back.

    I also notice it says limit of 10 prize draw entries - it doesnt say 10 goes?

    Went to 1stop to get my cider(s) and topped up one of the shops with friuit, toilet rolls etc to 10 and paid by amex. No email yet so guess 1 stop is definately not on the small shop list.
    Got all4one voucher from post office and already got email from amex for that one.

    Just in case anyone else is getting store cupboard stuff as fillers for A, their 3 multipack of 4 tuna tins doesn't appear on the APG. Just as well I am very cautious and always get 10 items.

    And if you are getting the B&H, getting uht skimmed milk takes you over the magic 20 total. Whoops...

    Which Cadbury Chomp 23.5g was this?

    Separately to that question, I suppose only ...723512 can properly be called a "trigger" as it's the one that is on the mbuy. What I am told is ...783929 involves paying full prices as it's not on the mbuy and therefore isn't "triggering" anything: the prices on other items (which aren't the invisible triggers) are appearing as what was actually paid, even though the "...783929" chomp is an item that also isn't appearing. However it is potentially a far better one, if your store is showing 5 for 1 mbuy across all the products you buy, as it's back to 5 for 1 via refund at CS and also, hopefully, a 2 GC.

    No Pepsi, no curly wurlys, no gift sets in the little A on way home did find one wet receipt stuck to the floor though!


    Tresemme Cleanse and repair 900ml 4.50 v 3 M from my first womble in months. Gave me 5.15 so worth waiting for!

    Evening all.
    Originally posted by curl girl
    I'd have thought there wouldn't be any gift sets or any soft drinks cans packs of that type in an A Supermarket and the range of sweets/chocolate probably wouldn't extend to individual curly wurlys either. I haven't had the Muller trigger in my Supermarket either. I think these are items in Superstores and Supercentres. Well done on the womble - it's more than the difference you'd have got back by buying the curly wurlys anyway.

    I thought this one was, firstly, going to be lost entirely and then, when I saw the voucher amount and that M was the 'winning' comp., I thought it had been cut substantially. That was because I saw 10 Irish Cream on the receipt. The Bailey's has missed the M price collection and I suspect it compares unfavourably against everywhere - it compares unfavourably particularly against M.

    However, I have to thank them for this, on my M comp.
    1x Feeney's Irish Cream Liqueur (1l) 10.00 N/A

    Unfavourable against T (even more so than Bailey's vs M) - N/A against everywhere else.

    And thanks to M for rolling over the 10 price on the Warnicks this week. And, probably, also thanks to T and A keeping it at 10 in their stores and keeping M at 10 as a result.

    10 items (8 different) on your receipt qualify for comparison Asda morrisons
    1x ASDA Rose Sparkling Juice Drink (750ml) 1.00 N/A
    1x Warninks Original Advocaat (70cl) 10.00 10.00

    I did have the Options on my collection, along with two other versions of it, but decided why bother?; there are own label versions that can be obtained a lot cheaper.

    I have been diverted away as I have been doing other things for the last several hours. I had to visit M earlier for an emergency purchase, the very thing I was trying to avoid doing. Unfortunately, people here keep consuming things too quickly.

    The Old Rosie Cloudy Cider (10L) is still 13 in M today - at least that is still being displayed in one of my Ms (I never know what price the products really are).
