    My 20 item assorted shop gave only 1300 points.
    Large tins of beans, soup, pesto and salad dressing ! Unsure which work. The signs still stated 300 points on a promo stand so asked at cs.

    10 large beans.
    7 soup.
    2 pesto
    1 salad dressing.

    The small bean section was empty so someone had been lucky.

    My beans were bought about 9am yesterday too as I went after school drop off so maybe the 24 hr thing has some merit

    This was my first shop.
    In the main aisle there were 100 point labels on the soup, nothing on the beans.

    I wasn't going to bother until I saw an end isle promo with the big 300 points sign.
    So if signage is still there go to cs who will add the points to your account.

    Looks like it's been pulled. Or reduced.

    Savvy....

    Did a muggle shop in M while there.
    I think the prices are a lot higher than my previous visit.
    I like the bakery though......

    Dropped into Morrison's as had to go to town, as others have reported lots of the signage had been changed to 100 points, soup, custard, rice pudding. still some 300's at dressings, frozen meals and beans. I got 6 small cans along with some other shopping but no extra points on receipt. went to customer services and explained sign and she put the 1800 point on for me. I think the offer has been pulled on the small cans and reduced on others and they just missed this sign. recall the same thing happening when there was a wine offer on couple of years ago.

    Good afternoon all

    As many of you have been talking about fitbits and walking more, I thought I would let you know of an app my son suggested I download yesterday! It's called Sweatcoin and pays you for walking by rewarding you with sweatcoins for every 1000 steps you take by using algorithms on your phone. Looks like it takes a while to get anything decent but worth a look if you are walking about with your phone anyway! I'm on apple so not sure if you can download on android etc..

    Mum just got a handwritten envelope from Higgidy.
    Told her to open it - turns out I have won 4 pies worth 3.70 each

    Think I entered an online competition in Nov or Dec.
