    Yes as suspected, my propercorn pushed me over 20 .

    Also messed up putting propercorn in with Muller so it matched T not S.

    I am having a run of misadventure!!

    A bit like my shopping today, which has come out best against S instead of M. I knew this was a shop I shouldn't have bothered with and was bound to fail after I got my shopping bag with my voucher in it wet.

    I saw that M had doubled its price on the Flash 60 Anti-Bac wipes online and I suddenly decided that I needed some. I had the offer in M as being due to be on for a few more weeks yet, but A's price increase from 1 to 2 may have caused M to follow suit.

    I saw Lemon Wipes are now, or still, 1 on m.com, supposed to be until a long date in December away, and Google's cache went back two days on each product and Antibac Wipes 2 then and now and Lemon 1 then and now.

    I need not have bothered as S is 1 on each, and W 2 for 2 for some time yet, so worse I could have targetted W if the Mullers were still not available vs S when I came to do a shop later on.

    My Ms are in doubt about these products as I have one store that has always showed 2 on each of them, never put the offers up but the other has offer price on each and I still had that on Wednesday. Afaik therefore, each of them was 1 on Wednesday (but there are full price SELs around and, if the collectors have too many, they could get 2). I was going to buy one of each type (1 price on both Antibac and Lemon in the M that has ever put the offers up for me), although I had enough items already. However, instore I chickened out trying the Antibac Wipes as they were now showing 2 online and I bought two Lemon (now showing 1 online and I thought rolled over - have long been that).

    Vs M
    2x Flash All Purpose Cleaning Wipes Lemon (60pk) 4.00 4.00

    I probably should have bought two Antibac instead. The reason being that, on my way back from the shopping (as usual, always afterwards), I thought that Lemon would probably fail - if it's been continuously been 1 but been rolled over, several stores may have their SELs up to 2 full price SEL for two days around Tuesday and Wednesday in order to put the product back to 1 on Thursday/Friday. Meanwhile, I thought I should have bought Antibac (which, to be honest, I wanted more than Lemon) as, if it's 2 online and even Google at 2 on 1st December, that may well work against 1 M if it was 1 on Wednesday. I thought it was 1 but was put in doubt now by seeing 2 online.

    What I should have done was totally ignore online and not be influenced by it - instead, stick to my guns and go precisely by what I have from instore on Wednesday! However, I have each of them at 1 on Wednesday. The trouble is my stores - one of them doesn't put the offers on display at all and the other one fails to change its SEL up for two days and then put it back down again so it doesn't tell me that the prices are changing.

    The Lemon offer is also on for a while now, supposed to be, which suggests this offer period may only just have been started (after the product went to 2 SEL in several Ms, timed on price collection day).

    I also bought Dove handwash with them, trying to target M, but the comp. has gone vs S (Flash wipes 1 each there). It could have been far worse than it was but at least the Dove is 1.10 S although I have lost a bit as some SP items I bought have lost out vs S. I should just have stuck to wipes and Mullers and not bought the Doves at all.

    Well we went to the little theatre to see 2 plays, starting at 3pm.
    I expected to stay in town, sipping a drink & then go onto Bingo for 6.30pm (we set it up before doors open)

    2 plays & an interval - we were out by 4pm

    So walked up the huge hill home & I made a mushroom & onion quiche () with gluten free pastry

    Back out again now

    Managed to find a quiet M&S today so was able to try a few things at SS with the Android Pay promotion codes. YMMV but here's what I think based on my experiments :

    Yellow stickerered food won't work.
    (I tried a single curry reduced to 3.20. Still 3.20 to pay on final page)

    You cannot use more than one of the same type of code. e.g. 2 x 5
    (I tried to buy a 9 curry box with 3 x 3 codes. Only 3 was taken off on the final page. Warnings issued for the two other codes).

    You CAN use different types of code in the same purchase. e.g. 3 + 5
    (I bought 3 x curries - in a deal at 3 for 10. I used a 5 code and a 3 code and paid 2 cash).

    HTH. If you haven't guessed.....I'm having curry for dinner.

    I am going to separate this off as it may otherwise have been missed/unnoticed.

    3Dogs!

    The VO5s were and are no longer on 3Dogs' list and, although my A still has them in the display in the "3 for 2" aisle, it no longer has 3 for 2 showing on the shelving for them. It did have before - and, therefore, in a similar situation to the Original Sources, I now think they are no longer on the offer. My M list was out of date and I have now deleted them.

    3Dogs' list is also out of date. First, the Lynx shower gels are now off as A has reduced its price to 1 on them.

    Second, the list says that the Dove Handwash is now on a reduced price in M. However, it is not on a reduced price in M - there has been no change in price there but instead this was a glitch on Monday's price collection picking up incorrect pricing for M, at least on the original version, probably of 2 for 1.80 mbuy from some other product. It does not work from Wednesday's data and this glitch is now over:

    Today's comp. vs M:
    1x Dove Supreme Fine Silk Beauty Cream Hand Wash (250ml) 1.50 1.00
    2x Dove Original Beauty Cream Hand Wash (250ml) 3.00 2.00

    I suspected this was going to be the case and, indeed, it is. I was not unhappy with 1 price for M, although hoping for 2 for 1.80 (I suspect Silk would have given 1 even if the glitch had been on here as I think the 1.80 price on the list on the other Dove is not 90p each but is 2 for 1.80 mbuy and three total were bought but I was not going to buy six). I ended up with 3x 1.10 S.

    Fwiw, the SP Processed Peas tins, that were slightly glitching probably against Garden peas tin vs M, have now corrected from 21p M to 25p M. I ended up with same price vs S anyway.

    3Dogs is doing an excellent job trying to keep up, whilst I am being sent round from Antibac Wipes to Lemon Wipes to Antibac and then back again to Lemon due to stores putting their prices up, down, back up and back down on them.

    I have received that too, and I didn't take part ino the double up.



    This is rather strange, I got a normal fleece, with sleeves, tried them on in there and ended up with a 12 as I do with almost everything else (apart from a lacey jacket from Primark which had to be a 16 )

    Neither. They depend on when you claimed the vouchers on the shops. When you logged in (or were already logged in) on the APG site and generated the voucher (with its expiry date 28 days from that date). So, if you have claimed 90 total of vouchers on 1st and 2nd December and so far today, you will only get a maximum of 10 on the next voucher you claim before 1st January 2018.

    However, if this is online shopping, then I have no clue and I don't know whether or not the situation is different there. Someone else will know.

    I need not mention the complexity that the month starts at 1am on the 1st during the period of British Summer Time as that is irrelevant at the moment.
