    Yes Boots. The Fit Me one at £5.99.

    I picked up the wrong one. I thought it was the £8.99 one

    - I think Ive got 100 points for collection make up ...

    Boots sent me a mailing with points offers similar to the ones on my app. Ive used the free vits one via my card bit will the free vits paper version scan?

    Sharpies unavailable for my C&C this afternoon. Which goes to prove I'm better at hide and seek than Sada.

    With permission, I'm having a lie in tomorrow so won't be doing an early sharpie check. I'm sure Hillbern's hubby or some other kind Elite will do the deed.

    Hubby not at work tomorrow, so wont be able to get to A til 10 at the earliest, so if anyone else able to do that would be great..but I will pop in as early as I can and let you know.

    something strange in my A DH was in there at 7.30am today 3 left on shelf but he couldn't play games as there were several SA milling around and he was the only customer.
    I had email at 11am saying my order had been picked and was ready for HD (tonight between 8pm-10pm) and only 5 sharpies..
    DH popped in on way home from work for the Guinness but to no avail, but there on the shelf were the 3 that were there this morning.....Strange

    It looks like we will have to throw ourselves on the mercy of the Nectar customer services team.

    My conversation ended tonight with Nectar intending to "speak" to Viking tomorrow.

    They " spoke " to Viking on my behalf and came back and said Viking don't give points on gift cards . Showed me a link where it said just that. So up to now typically I haven t had my 3,000 points ....yet.

    Good Morning all.

    Morning, start of the weekend Finally had the courage to book tickets to see ds1 in Australia at Christmas. That amount of money hurts but well spent as I won't have seen him for nearly four years.
    Thoughts to all going through a traumatic time, hope things get better.
    Enjoy the weekend whatever you are doing

    TM, thought of Mr TM when I read this on 10 Ways, and anyone else who does outdoor sports.

    '"hey guys, not sure if you are already aware but a lot of outdoor companies are looking for 'ambassadors' to flog their stuff all over social media. Now we all know the likelihood of getting that role is next to nil unless you've climbed K2 5 times blindfolded... but they often give you money off just for applying! I applied to Sherpa Adventure Gear a while ago and they gave me 20% off their site. My Mum did the same with Pactimo and got 20% off cycling gear." - Thanks to George

    Also, worth doing this with lots of other brands, if you can offer them something in return they often willing to listen/send something out'

    Maybe worth a shot

    The year is going so quickly....how can it be Mother's Day soon?

    It will be worth every penny I feel the emotional tug with my two after a few weeks....so I can imagine how excited you must feel. I've just been thinking how quickly the year is going, so Christmas will be here before you know it....you will enjoy the planning and preparation. Wonderful

    Good morning Elite
    Wishing everyone warm, happy and well. Hugs to those not currently so. Or indeed anyone who would like.
    My c&c didn't show as collected yesterday and APG was, therefore, not checked until 7.45 this morning. Compared as usual but not sure if that used today/yesterday's prices.
    Happy Friday!
