    Definitely Costa, but I do have wins from Gregg's too. I'm a bit confused about it all to be honest, I seem to get two types of envelopes, some from "HSCB tap moments" and some from "visa tap and win". Sometimes I get one of the other, and sometimes both. I can't work out why / when / how to always get both ! (also some strange justice league thing which I have no idea what it's doing but no prizes on that one) I'm not normally daft with technology but can't work this one out

    This is theoretical, as 6 of them (meeting both A's 3 for 2 and M's 2 for 20) would well exceed 20 APG (if nothing really bad was also bought on the same shop and then it would seem rather pointless).
    As regards whether the Fusion Proglide Power Blades can be mixed and matched with any of the "ProShield" blades, it is not clear from the SELs in my M.

    My M shows 2 for 20 pricing on each. However, on the ticket for Proglide it says "Gillette ProShield Blades 4's [sic]" offer. However, the Proshield varieties are apparently not in the Proshield offer, instead, according to the SELs, they are in the offer called "Gillette Fusion Blades". Whether that includes Fusion Proglide or is confined to Fusion Proshield is unspecified.

    It seems to me, as someone following literally the precise wording of the SELs and completely ignoring that the person or people that wrote them was not being precise, there are two different offers and the Proglide blades are in a completely different offer from either of the two ProShield versions, that are in their own offer together with each other. If they are not being precise, then maybe there is one offer covering all three; however they have specifically put onto the SELs for each of the ProShield products the exact same offer description, so this is where the confusion starts, since clearly they must have intended that that was one offer and the other, covering just the Proglide, is separate. But then I am reading what their wording actually says. Say what you mean! (People generally often do not do so.)

    As it seems it may be they have not said what they meant, but said something else that they didn't really mean, since they may - in common it seems with most people most often - be being rather careless over their actual precise wording and failing to be specific, exact and completely precise in every way (when is that ever achieved in the English language?) without any possibility for ambiguity, misunderstanding or confusion, they are probably not meaning it to be taken literally as it says. However, for me, the words they have actually used are clear: there is no confusion that, because of the different words, there are two separate offers and therefore I can't say whether or not they meant what they said as what they have said is very clear and there isn't any confusion following what they have actually said on each item.

    As regards whether the APG would pick up a mix and match, whether or not these products are all on the same mix and match (and I have no clue about whether that is the case or not as I am following their clear wording and treating them as two separate offers, one with the Proglide product only in it, called a ProShield offer in which no ProShield products appear actually to be in, and the other, a separate offer including both of the ProShield products. I am sorry - if you are going to write, in relation to a Proglide product, that it is in a Proshield offer, then I am going to take you literally at your word that you meant that - as, if you did not, you would be correct and accurate and actually say something else that it then is in. I expect people to be accurate and precise every time and always to say what they actually mean. If they might something else, then they would say that instead! (Of course, I know fully well this is not how it works. However, how else am I supposed to interpret or understand what they have said? If someone says something and I take what they say, then if they didn't mean it, it's their fault as they should have said what they actually meant and not something else. That's the rest of the world's problem, not mine, and people should be precise and fully accurate, rather than the hopeless human beings that they actually are !)

    Anyway, the APG collectors might well, like the Colgate toothpastes that are, or have been - I may have spotted a subtle change on that (but irrelevant now they are no longer in A's offer) - some of them in a Colgate Total offer and separate ones in a Colgate Whitening and Sensitive offer, despite one Total Advanced Whitening appearing in the part of the shelf suggesting, fairly enough, it is in the Total offer but not the Whitening (and Sensitive) one. Therefore they are not accurate - the "Colgate Whitening/Sensitive" offer should be "Colgate Whitening/Sensitive excluding Total Advanced Whitening"! The APG collectors might just put the blades into one single offer, like the Colgate toothpastes earlier, as they might fail to notice the different wording on one of the 2 for 20 compared to the other two, subtle as it is.

    As regards the list, therefore I have put this post here rather than attempt to explain the extent, or not, of the 2 for 20 Gillette mens blades mix and match on the list. Taking the SELs at their face, I think 2 for 20 pricing is in two separate offers - one of them covering only both of the ProShield razors but not called that - however you, or I, might still think there is probably one offer covering all three items. However, online also has two separate offers divided this way, so I am taking the SEL writers at their word and not tripping up whereas most people shopping in M, that considered buying these products, probably would do. I will divide them on the list strictly as it appears they should be if bought in M in order to pick up the different 2 for 20 offers on them. However, the APG might allow a mix and match across all three.

    If you like scampi there's a deal at Waitrose ATM where you can get these https://www.waitrose.com/ecom/products/youngs-premium-wholetail-scampi/008564-4079-4080 for 1.60 each.

    They are on PYO so if you buy 4 of them the till takes off 7.96 for the multi buy and 3.60 for PYO leaving 6.40 to pay. Plus you can get your free paper and coffee

    In M, however, I believe the three razors are in two different offers (one in one of them and the other two in another offer). As stated, it is theory because buying these razors and picking up both A and M offers would exceed 20 to the APG by a lot indeed. However, the two M offers might be put as the same M offer on the APG.
