    Wheres My Cashback
    First added H4lifax but that wanted phone verification and I cannot remember the phone pin - no sign of the promo. Then added FD card, verified, and the promo appeared. Then on the Droid Pay home screen I have the card and below it Unite for Justice League and Visa Tap and Win promos. On the Tap and Win underneath the blue promo it says “Use Visa with Android Pay until 1 Jan for a chance ...”

    Confirmation email received too detailing the promo.

    You are an absolute . You've been a true friend by messaging me regularly to make sure that I am ok.

    Had a few trips to my large a but they haven't had the Lynx (DGS asked for these on his birthday/Christmas list). Went to a small one today and they had them. Went to the big W's and got a 52+ shop down to 18, so was well chuffed. A few more conditional spends to go.

    A few dtd around on pork but not enough to make it free. It won't work with the 2.50 pork as they are all the same price, will only work when it is a per kg price.

    Your weight lose is impressive, won't recognize you when I see you again. Don't go overboard. x

    Claire the fudge is not the trigger....The triggers as far as i am aware have been the Chomp bar...and the Cadubury's buttons...You may have found an additional one...What other one did you buy that is not on your receipt...And did it show the multibuy on your till receipt
    Originally posted by marmitelovemehateme
    "Trigger" (though, strictly speaking, it doesn't trigger anything hence why I have put quotation marks) is the unflashed version of the Chomp Bar, the one without the 30p price stated on its packaging, that isn't on the mbuy at all but is 5 for 1 and 2 GC from CS if the SELs show 5 for 1 across Chomp 23.5g (which this is) and Curly Wurly (or Refreshers roll and/or Candyland Black Jacks if you are buying those against M in a shop that isn't in Northern Ireland). The other Chomp (30p price on the packaging, whatever its individual price actually is) is a trigger but you initially pay 5 for 1, which is probably showing on the SEL anyway and no GC, and then it gives full price to Curly Wurly and the others that appear on the APG. Fudge isn't a trigger here as it appears on the comp. (unless there are two different versions of that too, one of which I am unaware of, and two fudges were bought on the shop, one of each). There are three items on the comp. that should be in the mbuy, two are missing - the fudge that has appeared isn't the trigger, something that has failed to appear is (unless it is the non-flashed Chomp and you have paid full price - in which case maybe you should be off to CS). The trigger on the shop is the Freddo that has failed to appear, if it is in the offer, and another item that has not appeared either (if that's also in the offer).

    It now looks like we have three separate triggers that could be used - call it four for simplicity if you don't want to be technical.

    The three are Cadbury Chomp flashed, Cadbury Buttons and Freddo. We don't really want any of these as it seems to me they don't give an overcharge situation that requests a 5 for 1 reset and a GC. The fourth, which isn't properly a trigger in my view but is the one wanted, is the unflashed Cadbury Chomp that isn't in the mbuy if SELs across the items say 5 for 1.
