    Oh I don't envy you, they become like children, my dad became naughty, well we both have a bit of a wicked sense of humour and he pushed his to the limits at times. I remember the crossroads lady going to sit with him one day so my mum could go out for a couple of hours, she went to get my mum's washing in and whilst she was in the garden my dad got up, he could hardly walk because of the Parkinson's, went across two rooms to the drinks cabinet and poured himself a large glayva

No, they are not - that is a no-go as far as triggering is concerned - it is fully in stock - but it might be bought with EITHER (not both!) the Baked Salt & Vinegar or the Ketchup Crisps, and will appear and hopefully compare, only against M at 1 now as T's offer has ended. You'll want 3 for 3, obviously, and be careful on versions of Baked Crisps vs attempt against M, and indeed on the standard 6 pack Walkers crisps too, as M does not have all versions that A has. For instance, I saw a Walkers Pickled Onion 6 pack crisps winking at me last time I tried to find another standard 6 pack crisps I wanted, trying to trip me up. I wasn't having it - I do not have that one anywhere in M - even though it took me some time to find the Cheese & Onion flavour that I actually wanted: eventually I found it, one multipack left, on the bottom of another shelf. Ritz Bakefuls Salt & Vinegar only or the comparable Jacob's Cheddars/Cheddars Crispy Thins might be better items vs M due to higher individual price in A. Or the Kettle Bites, 1.89 individual A price, in twos - hopefully one of each of the versions of those that A has online will pick up M pricing.)

    Of course you don't have to target M (and can't do so if you are shopping in Northern Ireland). You could buy the right Sunbites or, worse, Walkers standard crisps multipacks that are in A's offer and that S has at 1 each, together with Baked Salt & Vinegar 6x25g, with Muller Rices and Lights that Sains has at 35p and the Christmas Bakery trigger, and the crisps/snacks might glitch too.

    For the sake of 25p, might be best to buy them in Tesco today if you need them desperately this time (and if you can find stock there - might have more luck as at least it is not a busy weekend shopping night but a quiter Tuesday night, although it is before Christmas so maybe unfortunately it is not that quiet).

    I'd say it was off already on the APG and is 6.39 on t.com - I wouldn't even go within 24 hours of an end date. If an offer is ending on 5th December (today), I would have completed all my shopping on 3rd December if I knew about it then - and if I found out about it later, I'll miss it out altogether. The APG usually changes to full price the day before and ruins any shopping I try against T. However if, later tonight, we see the Baxters soup shop against W also pick up T's expiring 4 for 3 mbuy, then the Tetley might stand a chance if receipts are in and checked before 6am tomorrow - although, even then, the price updates could have been at different times on t.com today and the Tetley could fail. You can otherwise wait for T to put the offer back on or be looking around for some alternative tea to compare against somewhere else.

    Get the crisps from A, together with the Mullers, target S and get your 29p. Buy the Tetley at Tesco and you are still up by 4p.
    If it is just the one item needed, tea vs Tesco, your fillers are going to cost you more than 25p combined anyway so, in that sense, in that situation, you save by buying the one item in T without 7 unnecessary items.

    Of course it does depend on how far away your T and your A are. If you are miles and miles away from any T, marooned with only an A, then tbh I would just give it a miss altogether - or try some different tea that is still clearly on vs elsewhere or best just at straight A's price if you are desperate - rather than attempt vs T now.

    There is some tea on offer at M. However none of the prices reached my guide prices. They rarely do - branded tea is expensive. However, that is a pointer to see what msm/m.com has for tea potentially vs M (careful - price collection may not be on Monday yet for M). Excludes N.I.

    I don't suppose there is much chance of coming across some slight damaged pack of tea and getting it on RTC shelf price? My T is usually better on RTC shelf items than my A though - so I'd be off to T.

    Couldn't find the xmas yogurt at all, then DS said to me this morning that he saw them last week, so will look again.
