    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?

    So won't it be 18 v 15?

    And with the 10% ...... 18 v 13.50

    Unless I am missing something.

    Wheres My Cashback
    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.

    Advice. NEVER ever believe what you're told without querying it, especially when dealing with banks/retail. I wouldn't have a fraction of the bank accounts/stoozing deals/SoGA refunds etc I've had if I believed what I'd been told.

    The 342 is different to the standard comparison, as what the APG sees is not what we actually pay

    Buy in 6s

    APG will see
    18 v 15
    So your APG will be 4.50.....thats 3 which is the difference plus 1.50 which is your 10%

    However you have only spent 12 on the items and you have got back 4.40.

    So the 6 items has cost you 7.60 which is 1.26 each

    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????

    Could it have something to do with the Marksies tills and the way it sees reduced stuff?
