    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.

    Also, now I think about it, Flash 60 wipes as they have gone up to 2 in A. Mediterranean Lemon and/or Anti-Bac. Those two versions, should each be 2 vs 1 M. Don't buy Orange.

    Otherwise one or more of the three Flash 400ml gels on my list. Cotton is confirmed as comparing 2 vs 1. However, still quite expensive price IMO on straight 10%().

    I wouldn't be trying the Kiwi Ball of Foot Cushion!

    I'm assuming you have a significant (double-figures) APG to spend and want as much back as possible, whilst at the same time ending up with not too bad 10% off prices for each item. If you want to 'overpay' though - maybe one of the Danone Light and Free yogurts on my list 2.50 vs 1 - no need to buy A's mbuy - or I understand the Oykos yogurts have also increased (why would anyone be getting any yogurts other than Muller Lights?) in price in A. They kept buying me Apple Cinnamon on my wombles at 1 A. Now, on the one I've just checked, someone has bought me one at 2.30:

    1x Oykos Special Edition Luxury Greek-Style Festive Apple Cinnamon Yogurt (4x110g) 2.30 1.00

    I did have a list of flavours of those on Monday that M had (strangely I didn't have Apple Cinnamon - but my wombles then added it for me so I did) - however I ruled them out as A was 1 on them at the time. Now it's 2.30, I haven't got the list from Wednesday. I will try to build it up though - either Monday's pages are somewhere around or msm may assist.

    This item also compares like this if you buy two (M mbuy):
    2x Alberto Balsam Juicy Green Apple Shampoo (350ml) 2.00 1.80

    Someone mentioned the Seriously Strong cheddar at 2 in A earlier.

    Not 10% cheaper than M:
    1x Seriously Strong Creamy Medium Cheddar (350g) 2.00 2.00

    Not an item for me - v. expensive 5.71/Kg - 10% off is still in excess of 5/Kg!
    If you want APG back rather than necessarily good price end-up, depending on what you have use for, the Bic 2 Sensitive Disposable Razors (10) go 2 vs 1 M. So, in pure terms of APG amount, 2 is better spent on an item that compares 2 vs 1 than one that gives 2 vs 2. Then again, we would never buy any cheese at all if things were like that and would keep buying razors after razors every shop simply for the APG back - 20p back will always be worse than 1.10. At some point, if we want cheese, we have to buy it, even though it does not give 2 vs 1 comp. I suppose that is best done on the final shop you make with the APG series - when your voucher, with about half the bill back, becomes lower and lower each time that it is then just spend on items cheaper in A and ended. Buying a 2 vs 2 item now, instead of 2 vs 1, will cut your future APGs sooner. Really the final shop, with no hope of getting 8 items as the voucher being used against it is then so small, should be on an item 2 vs N/A or more than 10% cheaper everywhere rather than losing the 20p if that 2 item had been put onto a different shop and compared. But, then, you would have picked a 2vs 1 (or cheaper) item everytime instead of the 2 vs 2 so would never end up buying it if it was needed. Maybe a different pack size vs competitor at much cheaper than A price on that but same price per unit? It's quite possible to do shops of 2 though that do have 8 items and squeeze a bit of APG back.

    Got well trouted passing a 22 this evening as well.

    The less than 20 can be keyed on the self service so the receipt is not marked, if you then decide you didn't want some of the gift sets after all and return them what happens?
