    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????

    My original plan was to try and use them all together then refund onto a giftcard, looks like that’s never going to happen, I get all my food through wombled apg’s so I wanted to try the same with these very annoying, although the staff were helpful.

    Ok so 3 4 2 3 each , in t 2 4 5 buy 6, 18 v10 = 8 diff, so 10-8 = 2 -10% = 1.80?

    6 for 12 v 6 for 15
    If 3 4 2 not picked up 18 v 15. - 10% of the competitor price 1.50
    12 -4.50 =7.50
    7.50 divided by 6 = 1.25
