    Turkey Baco foil, the long one in a red colour box is reduced to 25p in my little A.

    Just nipped in for yoghurt this afternoon but notice that Heron have 12 Mullers for 1 at the moment, unsure which flavour though.

    New 3 for 2- this morning signs were going up for John Frieda on 3 for 2 and Aussie hair products in Asda. Didnt get pics as they were just setting shelving up and moving stock.

    The Aveeno body creams and Aveeno handcreams are still showing 3 for 2.

    The Vaseline Intensive Care handcream still had 3 for 2 label and is still showing at 2 in Sainsbobs (40p each)

    Looks like a couple of other good comparisons for handcreams

    UNTESTED

    Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream Unscented

    3.40 in Asda and 1.85 Waitrose (half price offer).

    Works out at 53p each.

    UNTESTED

    Aveeno Intensive Relief Handcream with Oatmeal (green top)
    5 Asda v 3.33 in Tesco.

    Work out at 1.33 each

    http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/Shopping/FindProducts.aspx?query=aveeno+intensive+hand+crea m&store=ASDA

    If tempted check signage in store and offer comes off at the till.

    Just burst out laughing at a post on Old Style thread - a lady bought some Himalayan pink salt. The health food shop told her it was 350 million years old; the packaging said Best Before September...

    Dear TrulyMadly,

    Thank you so much for creating a Just Giving in memory page for the Martlets Hospice and for already raising so much money for patient care.

    Without the support of people such as you, the Martlets Hospice would not be able to continue to provide such an essential service.

    Please do let us know when you have finished your fundraising so we can acknowledge your donation.

    Best wishes,



    For “you” please read “the Elite”

    A remarkable amount of money has already been raised

    And a huge thanks to LEJC...it was her idea x

    Big thanks to Hot-n-Shifty for trying the handcream

    Just got a message off him to say it didn't work

    Think I have worked out why not ... just don't rely on mysupermarket.

    On looking closer at Waitrose website, the tube has 50% extra so didnt pick up the comparison.

    Sorry Hot-n-Thifty.

    WARNING

    We have had trouble with AP..eventually we had all codes etc though and we were up and running, so we thought, but in 2 supermarkets the contactless ap wouldn't work...
    As soon as you touched the image of the card a pop up came up called SPENDLYTICS it has the same red logo at Santander bank, it asks you to open, which then takes you thru to google playstore to then download and open...it then asks for your log in id...this login is the gateway to your personal online bank

    We have rung Santander who have now blocked and suspended our account due to this being a potential scam that they hadn't heard off.
    it may legit but ???

    If the item compares to T for example you will always get it at Ts price less 10%

    So you will get back the difference in price plus 10%

    Good evening elite

    Having hell on earth with AP, trying to use the marky with sparky ones is proving impossible, so two questions:

    Can you use them on reduced items? As the whole of my basket was RTC food, I tried breaking it to two transactions, but the manager said it wasnt working because its cast as sale iitems.

    Can you use them all at once?

    Please any advice????
