    Izzy65....They are the right Power towels...The 4 pack...Looks like they have gone from comparison to Morries...

They may come back on a future comparison, which we won't know unless wombles get them, but they are certainly off now. Can I check - is there any Scotland/England+Wales issue before I write them off for now? It may just be a temporary loss of them against M that could come back on the next collection (it won't retrospectively apply to this shop unfortunately) but I think it is probably now gone for good.

    Did someone on here want Nestle Walnut Whips? Seem to remember something about that. Anyway, they are in Poundland, 3 in a pack, also there are different varieties available, original, mint and caramel.

    Retail park absolutely crammed, only went to collect my fleece and get some binbags, then decided to get out of there pdq.

    Fleece is lovely, perfect gift.

    Anyone wanting to bump a shop up in Waities, and still have the Covent Garden Soup coupons, six or seven of the soups are on My Picks.

    I got Mum's paper, latte and 4 soups yesterday and paid 32p

    Also came away with a till spit for a free 12x box of Whiskas Casserole cat food.

    Alright, now I get to what I have found in M so far. Aussies are now off in M (I will try for lots of 2s in another store but I think it's going to be no good). The good news however is that several 1L alcohol bottles it seems have gone to decent 15 price instead of being stuck on 16 that some or many of them (or maybe others) have been on for a number of weeks recently. However - no good on Baileys 10 - I am on 15 SEL today. The offer ran precisely between the two price collections.

    I did see it at the weekend in M as I had to make an emergency journey. However, as far as the price collectors are concerned, they have probably seen it is at continuous 15. I cannot count the weekend - I therefore have no awareness whatsoever that it has ever been 10.

    Apart from the above, it all appears fairly static in M at present. Not much is happening today - it seems much the same as it was last Wednesday. (Until I go to another store and find they have changed everything.) Last night I was in doubt about whether I was even going to M today - I did a shop at A first today and that reduced the amount of time I would have available for M but, with the lack of much happening, except the alcohol bottles that were not a lengthy task and the Aussies simply being off, the time needed for the first store has been less today. I am glad I have gone to M though, as I've found the alcohol now on, and there was some Christmas music playing when I was in the early part of the store which rather made me feel happy and in the Christmas mood. I generally don't like shops at this time of year (from end of October really) as they are so busy and crowded - not the fact people are there but just that slows me down getting around stores (when trying to do quick shopping rather than extended price collection, and then the wait at tills and the SS) - I don't know where people are the rest of the year, they just seem to come out during the late autumn/winter months!

    I saw the alcohol immediately as there was a sandwich board outside my M showing three at 15 each. Aware that my M might not have every product in the offer, I noted which three were pictured. I then saw an offer poster showing seven in the store. So the three shown outside were not all of them. I then found a further one on the shelves. Still not all of them - there was another poster elsewhere with more than seven on it but still not the further one on the shelf. I think I have got all of them now.

    Originally posted by curl girl
    If anyone is wondering, it won't be picking up M at 15 yet. As regards S, that should be more straightforward. Has it remained constantly at 15 recently there or has it just gone onto an offer? "Offer 15.00 - save 7.00." Offer on until 12/12/17. But when did it start? Msm showing it, but not apparently as an offer (no crossed out price) but as a 'regular price'. Price graph has vanished. "Famous Grouse sainsburys.co.uk" - Google cache - 15.00 offer - save 7.00, on early hours of 3rd December morning. Should be okay. Can't see why that would fail.

    No, it should work. But I never can give any guarantee. Yeah, I'd go for it if I wanted it.

    (I suppose, if worst, you are getting the Mullers free (better than!) so if it ended paying A's 18, the 3 and a bit more would be saved on the Mullers there, therefore effectively same as buying at 15 and paying 10 for 3 for the Mullers - lose the 10% except for 29p. If it ever was 21, then if it has full price in the system - I think it won't have, it's not been that online in the last day - then it would be 18.90 and A would come out cheaper than 10%. If the full price in S was actually more realistic it might have 18 vs 18 and still give some 10%. However, I don't think it's going to have that - it seems it is going to be 15 S. EDIT: I see you are buying two - so it would be a lose of 6 compared to buying in S if it failed or loss of 9 including 10%. I shouldn't worry about it - the checks suggest it will pick up 15 so it looks like it will be okay. Come on - it's not Mr T we are talking about where the items just disappear from t.com suddenly! It's Sains. - it'll be fine! Won't it?)

    No probs yesterday with 17 voucher.

    I might put a giftcard at the front of my next shop just to bump the balance up ahead of the 19 one.

    I see Propercorn has come back on COS.

    I do. But it's not M either - it's static Sainsbobs website. They aren't the annoyances that T can be by going unavailable only to come back later, and they don't do this up and then down roll over price thing with their website as far as I am aware. If it's been on for a couple of weeks and is on for nearly a week more - it's constant, three weeks in total. It'll be fine - it's consistent price for the APG I would hope.

    Even if on and off, and you might be joking with me there I think, it's on now at 15 and hasn't changed in price - I don't see a momentary full price for a few hours caught by the APG and then back to offer - it was 15 on 3rd December when Google caught it and if it went OOS, it's not been for 7 days so, particularly with consistent price now and then, barely 24 hours later, it will be 15 picked up. What you are worrying about? Of course I can't guarantee there won't be a temporary glitch in the system of N/A. However, barring all remote possibilities like that - we can't cater for everything possible that might theoretically happen but extremely likely indeed won't - I don't think there is a major problem, from what I see anyway. I don't want to guarantee it (unlike A), but I don't think there is much to worry about - even though the receipt entry will always have this moment of "will it or won't it work?" trepidation before you then, very most probably, see it does. It has worked before, I think during this offer and nothing's changed that I can see that would say to me that that situation would be upset.

    Good Afternoon All.

    Don't know if it's any use to anyone but on HUD there is a code for a free 1 Month Entertainment Pass and 1 Month Film Pass.
    Don't think I am allowed to post link or codes, but very easy to find.

    Could be useful for the Christmas Period, if you don't already have it.

    Don't do both at once as cant add if have more than 30 days of an existing pass left. Wait a day to add second one.

    Have just added Film Pass and cancelled straight away, so not to get charged in Jan.

    Potentially massive APG
    So what do you lot think about this one:

    https://groceries.asda.com/product/electric-toothbrushes/oralb-pro-2000-rechargeable-electric-toothbrush/910001417217

    Oral B Electric toothbrush - 70.00 in A and 30.00 in T

    A genuine price, no glitch, leading to a potential 43.00 APG.

    I am looking at buying 2 of them (a genuine purchase), so a possible 83.00 APG.

    What do you think the trouts will say to that ?

    I have asked a couple of times before, but no-one has answered me yet as far as I can see. Do the Propercorns work versus M?
