    Another random N00B question from me today... APG in A Living a problem?

    Need to do some Xmas shopping so figured I could spend them there maybe even pick up the likes of gift sets + smart price shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste etc. for the food bank to do a compare?

    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up & never give up.

    5 items (4 different) on your receipt qualify for comparison A v T
    2x Dove Men+Care Ultimate Wash Bag Gift Set (each) 20.00 9.00 3Dogs - these are now cheaper in T's than showing currently on your amazing post 210. Now working out at 72p each

    1x ASDA Classic Country Veg Soup (400g) 0.39 N/A
    Comparison total (compared products only) 30.59 14.09

    I don't need any of this stuff as I don't give presents. Giftsets going to Hampers/Gift Bags for vulnerable people and foodbank.
    Even though I use some SmartPrice stuff myself, I can't bring myself to give it to Foodbank, so I've started getting the 39p soups that don't compare to anywhere plus the spaghetti and beans as fillers (but not the hoops which don't compare favourably).

    Womble vs M. Coming out 4p lower than 10% cheaper - probably should have offered a voucher, the Blue Dragon sauce picking up full price for M instead of what I believe to be M's 50p each (and bought multiple times) - probably got 4 of their stores displaying 70p and two showing 50p. Also the Domestos Pink Power has 1.10 for M instead of what I believe to be the correct price, 1 that is showing on m.com. I have 1 from my Ms but the collectors have 1.10 from theirs. Not a particularly good item IMO (there are cheaper alternatives) and somewhat worse against M with the APG picking up 1.10 - the best competitor price they have at the moment, and with T even worse at 1.20 - I don't even note such a product down but I caught a glimpse of it on an aisle end in one of the Ms I used and I can't not remember that I did see this product with 1 on display.

    Comparison total (compared products only) 10.73 11.97
    cheaper +1.24

    Egg Noodles are against S at 1, therefore no need to buy A's mbuy (which has gone from 2 for 2 last time I saw it to 3 for 3) unless it glitches. As is it vs S, you can currently buy the one item with a lot of a particular selection of Mullers and effectively knock 29p off the bill after APG and have the Mullers. Just buy the single item with the correct combination of Mullers. And then another single item with Mullers later with 29p off.
    M lists - page 18 (on 40 posts per page setting) - Avs M: post 705 onwards; Tvs M and "Buy in M": post 709 onwards.
