    Yes that's the bit that really annoyed me - no hot chocolate. I don't suppose there is any point in asking if its possible either ...

    Our Mr T caf! was a Costa but its not any more - maybe they lost the franchise. Not sure who runs it now as some of them are franchises - Stafford caf! was.
    Chester was a Costa as well - so the free hot drink vouchers wont be accepted there???

    I was only wondering the other day where the elite find the space to store all their bargains?!

    You all must have massive houses.

    Morning peeps.
    Feel like I've been up forever....

    Thanks for the T mag info.
    2 out of my 3 T don't have cafes anyway!

    My T triple points card arrived yesterday, what a waste of a mailing.
    It can only be used once.
    curl girl with a space - even though there is no space in my cupboard!!!

    Incase anyone has a Sparks card and an upcoming birthday the birthday offer is 20% off clothing, one usage and 10% off food one usage valid for a fortnight.

    sadly does not include alcohol so possibly it wont work on a meal deal.
    The clothing one - I am wondering what would happen if I bought a jumper in store - would it also take my jumper 5 off and then take another 20% off ... might be worth an experiment. Online I suspect it will only take one offer - it wont take the 20% off ...

    Big thanks to the kind person who encouraged us to go to the ref board and put our codes in. A kind person has used my shopmiumms code this morning - I think I get a free Lindt bar but its not showing on my list yet - will it take a few days, am I being impatient??? Free chocolate is always very exciting!

    I think it might be a good filler item for a
    a v Mr T shop

    if propercorn is still on the COS list and my store has restocked and I can think of a good enough comparison list ...

    Also can I ask what happens now. Do I delete my original message? How long before I can put a new code up? Will shopimumm issue me with a brand new code?

    That’s great mhoc, they get the chocolate and you get 4 referral credit added to your account. This means if you fancy buying something half price at 2 instead of 4 for example you get it free and 2 is taken from your referral credit. You always keep the same code.

    I was the one who initially bought shopmium over to our thread and I think about 6 people from here used my code, I still have about 5 of my credit left

    MY OH tends to over compensate and always asks if I want things left in the boot as he assumes I am taking things back - I don't do that many returns!
    Over Christmas he was driving around with two trays of cat food - 24 tins in all - convinced they were going back to Asda - and then the morning cat food cans was very low stock and I needed the Asda tins he had taken the car and the cans to work with him

    Also COS have sent me one of those weird cashback offers via text again - free 1.75l coke zero and also 1 off eight-packs of cans.

    I am thinking that 2 coke zeros are about 1.75 each or 2.50 in sada and Mr T so that's another good addition to the list

    Have to do a search back to see if they are matching

    They had one of these a long while back, I was totally unconvinced but it worked - the cashback appeared on my totals.

    Sparks are showering me with offers this week.

    Postie has just brought me another voucher
    10 off nightware

    so I've got 10 nightware, 5 off jumpers plus 20% off clothing - assume its all full price items- wonder if they would all work together in one shop ...I have credit notes and AP 3 so it might be worth an experiment.

    Also this week they sent me the voucher they send you in your birthday month in an envelope festooned with cupcakes -Ive been with the premier club since its start and it was always an old fashioned afternoon tea, the lovely cafe girls brought it to your table on a stand with 2 pots of tea - sandwiches, cake and scones.
    Now its just tea for 2 - 2 sandwiches, tea and a scone
    Ironic since the outside of the envelope with cupcakes does not match the picture inside.
    The worst sort of shrinkflation

    I did have a rant on twitter to them about the lack of cake and the lack of notification about the downgraded offer but they are just ignoring me now. I am going to tweet them a pick of my free crispy creme dougnut if I remember to get it

    Good morning Elite

    Dry and bright start out there but Im staying in bed a while longer. Need to change my diet completely as for the last three weeks Ive been suffering with severe bloating after eating even small portions and horrendous stomachs pains. Advised to cut out wheat and possibly dairy . No more Lurpak or cheese as I know it.

    Snap ant sorry to hear your sister has reached that stage but itll be worth it. She is in my thoughts daily as are the family

    Underperky. Hope today finds you well, Im forcing myself to take one step at a time and slowly. Trouble is, I see grandchildren and forget my resolve . End up acting the goat with them

    Hope everyone well, not too much under the influence of flu or colds. I hear there are loads of bugs on the attack up and down the country.

    Hugs to the Elite poorly, special thoughts to those low in spirit and mind. Youre all in my thoughts xx

    I got the 5 off jumpers, rather annoyingly all the sale ones under 5 are sold out in my size.

    I keep getting emails from them to trial food delivery - just spend 35 or more and get free delivery. Much as I adore their food, if I were to spend 35 or more I would hope it would be in a glitch or I would have vouchers

    Found some more dreamies Christmas stockings on clip strips in my T. Label said 2 but they scanned at 62p. Contains four packs of normal dreamies and two of the little deli cats ones. Not too bad at 10p a pouch
